What is wrong with this guy? Anyone ever hear him on the fan trashing the Devs? Everything he says, not just Devils related, but hockey related is an out and out joke. Guy makes me want to kill people.

I have never listened to him. I am not a big talk radio guy, I just heard him a few times waiting for the Devs broadcast recently. He sounded like an absolute moron.

I don't mind listening to Somers when he's talking about baseball, but anything hockey related is just a joke. Listening to him trash the Mets is hilarious. Adam the Bull is most entertaining though when trashing the Mets.

He's working you. You're his lead-in. If you don't listen, likely no one else will. It seems to be a growing trend, so I guess it's working. Not hard to understand why, because Devils fans are amazingly easy to piss off.

I rather listen to him then someone like Francesa but that's not saying much. That's why I go to Sirius for my sports talk.

Is he the guy who only refers to the knicks at the "knickerbockers" and lakers as the "hollywood fakers"?

I actually think he's kinda funny..

He's the one who calls the islanders the 'ice'landers right? He obviously doesn't know jack about hockey so...I just kinda laugh at it

He's great!! I sat next to him about 10-15 years ago at a Net game. He loves sports and is always doing schtick. He's just like everyone else, except he has a microphone. Dont get upset. He's just having fun.

Yep. And he only refers to the Mets as the Metropolitans and the Isles as the Ice-landers. This guy thinks he's hilarious.

His voice is rape to my ears.

This, all of it. It's just shtick, people; if you can't handle it, don't listen.

I don't tune in to sports talk radio often (most of it bores me to tears, mainly because I don't care about most sports), but I was listening to the game online last night and I decided to keep it on after the game ended for some background noise. Somers was talking hockey for quite a while, mostly Rangers and Devils. I didn't get a sense of hatred on his part, just some good-natured ribbing. He treated the Devils fan callers well, IMO. I was amused by some of the Rangers fans who are already thinking Cup. :rofl:

Hes one of those guys that can trash your team (whether its the Devils or Mets, even though hes a Mets fan) but still find funny to listen to. I enjoy listening to him once in awhile.

Part of the job description in radio is being a jagoff. Getting a rise out of people is one of the few things keeping the format alive

His producer is the biggest ranger fan of them all and will encourge ranger talk then devil talk.

It's proven that in the past month we have been talked about more on out of town ( and country) sports radio then our "king of sport" mentality.

I moved out of NJ to MD in January of 2001. But before I moved I listened to WFAN quite a bit in high school and college since I went to Montclair as I was huge Mets fan before the strike in 94 (I can't get back into it now). I LOVED the schmoozer back in the day. Not sure if he has changed but he has a lot of schtick and he is about entertainment as much as anything else. Besides the NHL channel on Sirius I don't know of a good hockey related show on the radio personally. I miss Steve and while he may make fun of the Devils who cares, he is about getting a rise out of people good or bad, that is his job.
