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.

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:

IT IS VERY HARD TO WIN ONE STANLEY CUP, FORGET ABOUT THREE... and maybe it's high time some of you actually APPRECIATED THAT instead of treating it like it's some flipping birthright because for some random reason you rooted for the damn Devils!!!!! Posted Image

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.
