NY sports radio talk show hosts who are Devils fans

Recommended Posts

Are there any?

All I know is that not a single time I tune into NY sports radio do I ever hear a host talking about the Devils.

For that matter, I cannot say with any certainty that a single regular talk show host on NY sports radio knows anything about or even appreciates the game of hockey or the NHL.

Isn't Don LaGreca one?  I think he has a Devils tattoo as well.

None of the local shows talk about hockey for more than like 10 minutes at a clip. And its only Rangers or where will the Islanders be playing.

Rick DiPietro had a call-in-to-win contest around a week or so ago asking "Who is the current leader in the Metro division?" (Devils)

 

It took them 4 callers to get someone who knew. He was getting pissed

I listen NHL radio on Sirius.   Why would I torture myself with local sports radio that never talks hockey?   The Rangers barely get a mention, let alone the Devils or Islanders.

THIS, with all the options I have on Sirius/XM local radio can burn to the ground and I'd not shed a single tear....

LaGreca was a Devils fan growing up but now that he works for the other guys now, he’s “neutral.” His podcast is pretty good though, I download it and listen daily on my rides to and from work along with Spittin Chiclets from Barstool.

Sell out I guess. I guess he knows where his bread is buttered.

I imagine LaGreca’s still a Devils fan, but he’s really tied to the Ranger organization professionally.  I’d guess that if the Devils wanted him to PBP he’d have to give up his talk radio gig which is way too lucrative.

Don't EVER waste your time trying to get hockey stuff from these local sports stations. I can't stress it enough.

WFAN broadcasts Devils games for Christ sakes and NONE of their hosts would know the Devils exist if Brain Boyle went up to one and punched him in the face.

Many, many other options to get your hockey fix, so you don't ever have to go to these local all sports radio stations ever again.

One of my clients is a broadcaster for a MLB team, not his favorite team growing up. It doesn't always work out the way you dream at 10 years old.

He probably would, since the Devils are on WFAN and he works for 98.7. Nonetheless, he's become a Rag shill. I wouldn't be surprised if he got his Devils tattoo removed.

'Client'?

In fairness, it’s so close it could change overnight.

I’ve mentioned this a while back, but I will give Evan Roberts (an Isles fan) huge credit for putting a Ranger fan in his place who tried to make fun of Devils attendance.  Evan was almost yelling at the caller, and said, “where it counts, the Devils own this town.”

I have a feeling that if the Devils make a playoff run even if the Rangers are out of the picture, Evan and Joe, and Boomer will talk about it a lot.

Joe and Evan yesterday had on the Isles owner who was so excited, and rightfully so, to talk about the new arena and the Islanders future. To my amazement they kept bringing up the Jets owner and the Mets owner, and actually asking the Isles owner about THEM! Dude wanted none of it, constantly repeating I'm here to talk about the Islanders. So awkward and bizarre. Mad props to him for not indulging that poor interview.

Context: they were talking about the Devils leading for about 7 minutes before hand and Rick even said it was going to be the question lol
