Elias/Boomer & Carton 660 WFAN

23 posts in this topic

I am not sure if anyone caught this but apparently on the boomer & carton show this morning they were interviewing pierre mcguirre and also one player from each team (islanders,devils, and rangers). Each one had their own segment. i know brian boyle was the Ranger but was not sure who the Islanders player was

Well apparently Patrik Elias was suppose to call them at 8:45am for an interview and apparently never did. Well Craig Carton took offense to it and said that Elias was banned from the show. Boomer said he didnt care because he was a Devil

I am not really looking into this too much but I wonder if something had happened to Elias

He probably remembered that Boomer & Carton suck and decided to do something more fruitful with his time like slam his head into a wall.

How those 2 idiots are still on the air, let alone one of the top shows in their time slot, is beyond me. They are part of the reason I have satellite radio.

Why bother listening to any New York media. Im watching Hockey Night Live and Chico, Daneyko, and Jaffe were talking about how the Devils have one of the deepest defensive teams in the Conference and all you heard was Dave Maloney, and Al Trautwig interrupting each one of them saying they are not a strong defensive team or cracking jokes when Dano and Jaffe are trying to talk. Its unprofessional.

I actually love Francesca, he gets a lot of flak around here (which he deserves) but I like him because he is not afraid to put Ranger fans and analysts in their place when they mention the Devils. He knows how good our franchise has been and he respects that even though he is not a hockey fan.

Those MSG guys, as with almost all of the NY media types, all blow. We all know that. But still, it wouldn't have hurt for Patty to show up and represent for their morning-drive-time audience (not that I ever listen to them; I don't).

The Devils need a media-savvy player to get out there every once in a while when called upon, a la a Kenny Daneyko type. Dano has been holding down that fort forever, sticking up for Jersey. Where's the new blood?

Volchenkov. Very well spoken person :thumbsup: spread the good word Anton!

If Ryan Carter was a star he would be a great ambassador for the Devils, he is a very well spoken person and he says the right things.

ya that kind of sucks that he didnt' call in, I remember Parise calling in and doing a nice job. I think the guy I would want to be our voice to the media would be either Marty, Clarkson or Henrique.

At least boomner talks hockey, OK he talks ranger hockey, but the other shows do not even mention hockey unless there is some big controversey.

The Devils need someone to promote this team, that is the 1 thing that LL does not do a good job of, FAN is the home of the devils on the radio, would it kill them to get a player on once a week??

get brodeur on once a week or something on Francesa or something. He speaks his mind and would at least be worth the listen to some casual fans/non fans just for that

Boomer and Carton are great. Granted they're all I really have to listen to in the island but they're funny as hell and I can get whatever real insight I'm looking for online

Hockey Night Live on MSG last night was fantastic.. Like I said in another thread, they did about 75% of the show strictly on the Devils.. Dano was going nuts with his pro-Devilness.. It completely made my night, definitely going to continue watching

I listen to B&C on my way to work because Z100's morning show (which I used to love) has since made me want to drive off a bridge.. Don't care for Mike and Mike, either and that's about it for somewhat decent morning shows

*****

Fact of the matter is that hockey needs to be a part of the regular sports conversation here in NJ/NY.. We have 3 teams, one is the richest team in the USA, one is successful, and a 3rd team about to move to Brooklyn.. There is obviously a lot of hockey love around here.. Boomer needs to be an ambassador to making hockey a regular part of the sports conversation here, but he lets Craig shoot him down.. It would also help if Francessa left, though he gives the Devils a ton of respect when he does mention them

When I'm down by Philly hockey talk on the radio is just as common as Eagles and Phillies talk (when there is hockey to discuss).. The radio hosts take calls and actually know what they're talking about because they follow the team.. It's embarrassing that the NY media has made hockey out to be this weird fringe sport that "no one cares about".. Again, 3 freaking teams and we can't get any chatter

It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.. If the radio commentators rarely even talk about hockey and, when they do, they tell people "no one really cares about hockey" or "well I don't really follow the sport" then people in the area will believe that it's this outside sport they should only even consider following in the playoffs.. If you actually bring it into the conversation then more people will begin to follow it and talk about it

But okay, no one cares about hockey.. Yup they'd rather discuss how many ways the Mets and Jets suck, did Carmello overreact to the whole Cheerios thing, how nice is the Nets new herringbone court, is A-Rod an overpaid p***y, and did some college football player really fabricate a story about his gf -- wow, all of that sh!t is way more interesting than hockey about to start for 3 local teams and should be discussed by moronic callers until all listeners want to vomit

End rant

Honestly, I think between Boomer on the Fan and La Greca we should have at least one team have one of their guys on once a week...I mean for gods sake they give Joe Namath a whole freaking hour which is just painful.

Well, he "poked" at not having the "A" taken away from him and now he goes AWOL for an interview? Maybe he thinks the newly appointed captain would have been a better idea?

I have to agree with some of the posters here that the Devils should have at least one representative on WFAN talking at least once a week about their team. If it was up to me, it would have to be on Joe and Evan. Even though Joe is a ranger fan and Evan is an islander fan, they are pretty respectful and dont make snide remarks like Somers, Carton, or Boomer

I thought Rolston would of been perfect if he was still around. I would say either have DeBoer do a weekly spot or possibly a Clarkson

I know he's a Rags fan but I like Boomer.

Wish they'd tie up Carton, stuff a sock in his mouth and put him in the janitor's closet during the show.

Elias was too busy polishing his two championship rings, something Boomer isn't too familiar with.

I really don't think the FAN would be that interested in having a Devils player on the air on a regular basis. It's only a Devils station during games, but other than that it's as if the Rangers are the only local team.

I heard the broadcast.. boomer hates the devils and the isles.. The only ones on the fan that respect the devils are the guys that are on at 10, and as much as I hate him.. Francesa

That sucks that he bailed. Patty never seemed to like talking to media... he always seems like kind of a dick to the reporters in interviews. I know they get asked stupid questions... but I don't think some players realize this is their link to the fans. Its not like the media is interviewing them for kicks...Its for obsessive fans like us :P
