Host is basically browbeating him saying "you're going to make money with the Sixers and use it to make the Devils better".

Typical warped Philly view.  Makes a WHOLE lotta sense there -- take all that monumental revenue generated from a crap basketball team and throw it at your profitable arena and penurious hockey organization.

Ridiculous interview.  I get it.  It's business. Get over it. 

15 straight minutes defending his groups investment in the Devils. Nothing else.  "What about the Sixer??" 

 

Sixers good .Devils bad,

 

I'd rather listen to Francesa interview him.  "Ok...so whut impact does dis have on duh Rangizz, ok?"

eh, I think its a tough play for them in that regards,any sense of disloyalty from the owner has the ability to affect tickets sales. These guys seem to konw what they are doing but I would love to see the sixers brought up to NJ =-p

To be fair, it's a Philadelphia sports show that will ask questions that are of interest to a Philly sports fan.  If the roles were reversed, a Devils fan would feel uneasy about it, and would want a local sports talk personality to grill the owner on the issue, if only to provide reassurances that one operation will not affect the other.

You're right in a sense Daniel, but that was the entirety of the 20 minute-ish interview.  It was the hosts asking the same question in different forms trying to illicit a favorable response from O'Neil.  By the end you can even tell O'Neil had more than enough of it.  At least bring different questions to the table if you have the guy for that long.  They sounded uneducated and unprepared. Macnow is nicknamed "The Professor" due to his seemingly endless knowledge of sports but yesterday was not his brightest moment.

Macnow is bad. While he talks hockey more than other hosts he goes on tirades saying teams in the south shouldn't exist, yet fails to mention successful teams like SJ, Carolina, TB. Nashville, etc. When the preds matched the Weber offer sheet you could feel the butthurt. Although Cuz (cohost Anthony Gargano) didn't talk hockey much at least he isn't a bore

Rofl at this interview. Butt-hurt doesn't even begin to describe it, and I love that they're so pissed. Hey Philly- go fvck yourselves. You're our bitch. You've always been our bitch, and you'll continue to be our bitch. Only difference is now you'll be reminded of it every day. Enjoy the taste fvckbags.

This interview is probably the most the Sixers have been talked about on WIP since Iverson left Philly.
