I usually like Boomer Esiason on the WFAN (can't stand Carton), but if he's going to try to talk hockey (he's a Ranger fan), he should at least pay attention to what's going on.

 

He basically said the Rangers shouldn't be losing to a team like the Devils, who he called "one of the worst teams in the league".  Seems like he thinks the season is still seven games old or so.

 

Here's how the two teams stand:

 

Rangers:  18 GP, 9-9-0, 41 GF, 49 GA  (-8)

Devils:  18 GP, 6-7-5, 38 GF, 46 GA (-8)...but as four of those GA are phantom goals for losing shootouts, the Devils are really -4 in goal differential. 

 

Both teams are playing better lately...Devils are 6-3-2 in their last 11 GP and the Rags had won 6 of 7 coming in.  Overall it's not hard to see why they're within a point of one another...they've both had some good games, some bad ones, and some issues overall...that's how you get to be about .500.  They both had rough schedules to start their seasons as well (lots of road games for both teams). 

 

But to make it sound like the Rangers should be beating the Devils like they're some bottom-feeder is pretty dumb.  Not sure why being a Ranger fan, no matter what your background, requires checking your brain at the door.

 

I heard that too this morning.  He's such a typical Rags fan, its not even funny.  I could only laugh when the Devils fan from LI called in and basically shut him up when he pointed out the "terrible" Devils are only 1 point behind the Rags and beat them twice already this year. 

 

Also, can someone please teach that fool how to use the cough button.  If I hear him clear his throat 1 more time on the air, I might reach through the radio and pull out his vocal cords.

I have yet to meet a more delusional fanbase than Rags fans.  Seriously they act as if they have the right to be douches like Yankees and Giants fans just because they're the "main" hockey team in this area.  Yankees fans are douches for sure (I am one btw).  But at least they have a reason to be.  Giants fans are the same way.  Rags fans feel as if they have the same right as the two aforementioned teams.

Someone should call in and ask Boomer if he's seen the video on YouTube about the Rangers- its called 74 Years, One Cup.

I don't think Boomer keeps track of the NHL as closely as he'd lead one to believe...I think he's a casual Ranger fan who probably watches a fair amount of Ranger games, but not much else re: the NHL, including the locals.  I'm guessing he probably thought the Devils had 3 or 4 wins, max...he was probably genuinely surprised that the Devils were 6-7-5 after beating the Rangers.

 

But it's like I said, if you're going to do a monologue about the Devil-Ranger game on a sports station that has its share of Devil fans, better know what the hell you're talking about.  Boomer sounded like an amateur idiot...a true Ranger fan wouldn't have to be told that the Devils are only one point behind his team with the same number of games played.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Boomer's a legit Rangers fan in terms of his interest in the team, I know he has season tickets and goes to a lot of games and he always talks about how he slingboxes the Rags games when he's on the road calling Monday Night Football. But I think you're right about him not following the rest of the league as closely. He's a classic case of a fan who follows his own team but doesn't really know much about the 29 others.

He's never hidden it. He used to host the Ranger radio broadcast post game call-ins where Ranger fans would acknowledge he's a Devils fan. He also talked about watching Kovy's first game on his sling box while at dinner with espn execs.

Someone claimed he has a Devils tattoo, but don't know about that.

He does have the tattoo- I remember he showed it to a bunch of fans after game 7 in 2003. He was saying how he needed to add another Cup because it was the Devils logo with 2 Cups.

Probably because he does Ranger games. It annoys me too, but its a job for him. What's he supposed to say, 'No, I don't want to do play-by-play for an NHL team and advance my career'? He's a great professional, I'll give him that lol.

What about HF don't you like?  I just hate how that site is moderated.  I still can't figure out what I did to deserve like 90% of my infractions.  I basically got myself permanently banned on purpose because of it.

not to jump into other peoples conversations, ...but I got banned from HF cause I called the Carolina Hurricane fans a bunch of drunks (in the Devil forum talking about a topic not even related to the Canes) and the infraction came from the Minnesota Wild thread moderator no less and this was years before Parise-gate!!
