We’ve Reached a New Low

Kyle Scott - July 11, 2017

Today is Prime Day. You’re going to shop. Use our link here.

This is dumb. Plain and simple. This is a dumb person conversation. The four-for-four topic is beyond played out, but at least it’s a legitimate sports topic on a slow day. But Carson Wentz’s religion, as anything other than a passing mention about how he’s a bit of a zealot, has nothing to do with nothing. This is on a day Wentz launched a foundation to help people:

97.5, rightfully, got crucified for this Tweet:

They responded:

Yeah they’re missing the point. It doesn’t matter which side of the contrived debate Mike falls on, the collective eye-roll has to do with the fact that anyone would even consider this a worthy topic. I know I sound like a broken record, but who on Earth, given the choice, would choose that conversation over literally any podcast discussing something that interests them? I don’t care if it’s sports, rock, tech, politics, religion, news, comedy, EROTICISM– doesn’t matter. Everyone has some interest that can be better served than by listening to meatheads debate Carson Wentz’s religion. Never mind the fact that, somehow, this was never a topic when Brian Dawkins, the savior himself, was spouting off platitudes before bashing his own head. I’m sure if Carson Wentz cited the book of Job before running through a cement wall he’d get a pass from the hardened ilk of Philly sports talk radio. Fuck this is dumb.

        Hold on, let me spit out this thick load that’s in my mouth….. ok. You guys! Fighting is violence and violence is just not cool. I have never been in a fight nor do I ever want to be. The Mayweather McGregor thing is stupid. I will take phillies baseball and a nice thick dick in my ass any day, over some silly fight.

      Rick Tocchet as head coach? Sounds like a bit of a gamble to me. Im sure he was rolling the dice on getting the Vegas job. Bad hire by Arizona

    The second tweet honestly bothers me more than the first. I’m sick of both stations tweeting out stupid topics with no context, and then not understanding the backlash. I don’t *owe* you a tune-in or to listen in order to hear what the hosts are saying. You’re the one that chose to use a different medium, Twitter, to take the conversation elsewhere. If you can’t put good content on the Internet, then just leave it on-air. When they do this, they always resort to “oh well the host was actually on the right side,” basically insinuating that even though the topic was dumb, it’s actually Twitter’s fault.

    Why is it that athletes like Deion Sanders, Reggie White and Russell Wilson are lauded for their religious beliefs but Wentz and Tebow are mocked? Hmmmmmmmmmmm

    It’s such a slow blog from mommys basement day that Kyle needs to resort to the slow topic from radio day for content. This is what happens when the Phillies are bad

    Would there ever be a “Is he not religious enough?” topic? Uh, no. Everyone is different. Take people as they are, so long as they meet a standard reasonable expectation of civil human behavior (most of the time).

    We as fans cannot demand that Philly sports team players act a certain way, 100% of the time, no matter what. We don’t own them. They owe us nothing. These are not OUR sports teams. We are not entitled to anything, especially to win. We can’t control the outcomes of games or behaviors. We, as fans, need to get over ourselves.

    The only say we have in the matter is whether we choose to watch and/or buy tickets. That’s it. That’s all that’s at stake. Get a life if you expect more.

    Sports “topics” are idiotic at best! React to what happens on the field, court, ice, etc. Talk about the anticipation of an upcoming game and what you think may or may not happen. If we’d just take that approach, we’d only need talking heads to facilitate conversation before and after games, not all frickin’ day and night, week after week, month after month, year after … you get the point. I have better things to do than to listen to sports (guy) talk all day. Most hosts are not introspective or insightful enough to understand what most people want and expect.

    THERE is the Kyle shitting on local media post! Couldn’t go a day without it!

    Nice recap of Flyers prospect camp, of how the Phils did in the rising stars game, or legitimately anything other than the Sixers/ shitting on mainstream media.

    Give us one day with no Sixers… just one! (unless something happens that is news worth…. not them charging some kind of fee to join a ticket waitlist like all other teams- if it was free people would join and never have the intention of buying, making the list unnecessarily long.

    Listening to Mike Missanelli’s crackling voice leads me to believe that his feelings are hurt from all of the criticism he’s been receiving through twitter.

    or faith. Tom Brady and Joe Montana. For some reason many NFL players do adopt a zealot like persona. Rarely hear this as much in NBA, MLB or the NHL.
    Maybe it’s the violence of their sport. I think Carson is in the Russell Wilson mold. That’s fine. If he can get to the Super Bowl two years in a row and win one he can set up a pulpit in front of Lincoln Financial Field as far as I’m concerned.

      I don’t know but I’m totally done with the show. Mike is so anti anything Flyers it’s ridiculous. Every show he spouts off nonsense that you can’t be a hockey and a basketball fan, which reading between the lines is basically him trying to create a non-existent race issue. He was asking black guys who called in yesterday to name all four forward lines to prove they’re a hockey fan. What a fucking joke.

      He also refuses to give the franchise any credit for finally trying to build the team the right way.

      Day in day out he basically uses the Flyers to stir the pot of this whole 4 for 4 nonsense, which I take bigger issue with than any of this religious nonsense.

  • Dog Days of Sports Talk Radio July 11, 2017 at 7:28 pm

    Ive been listening to music most of this week. The only show I find entertaining is Harry Mays and Tough Guy Rob Ellis and even them I have to take in small doses. Decamera + Ritchie , and Missanelli I just find stale, nothing compelling to listen to. And this week that had on motormouths Marx + Joe Gigolo doing drive time trying to see who can say nothing at a million miles per hour .

    Missanelli makes an idiotic point like Flyers fans are not Sixers fans, ugh, dumb caveman intellect. I go down the dial and Marx is telling us about his summer camp days. Time for Andre Gardner and some classic rock.

    If I were a sports talk radio host Id be tearing the Phillies ownership + management a new on a daily basis for the horrendous product they have put on the field the past 5-6 years. But The Phillies get a pass for the most part.

    Why not talk about Phillies owners making $90 M last year and giving you a roster full of stiffs making the ML minimum salary.

    The fact that miss is bringing this up is bullshe-it, but the kid is religious and there’s nothing wrong with him thinking the way he wants to think. What is wrong with religion is when a piece of shit like Ray Lewis does sinister actions including, but not limited to, being at the site of a murder and lying about it. Then he puts on the armor of God and tells you everything is now cool.

  • PFF Foundation Dynasty Draft July 12, 2017 at 9:06 am

    Pro Football Focus just released their rd 1 dynasty draft. It’s basically if the NFL started over today and all players were put into the draft. Guys who haven’t even played in the league, like Patrick Mahomes and college QB’s, Sam Darnold, were drafted in the first rd. You know who wasn’t drafted? Carson Wentz. LOL this guy is so overrated by the Philly fans and the media. Joe Flacco is his absolute ceiling, and Joe Flacco sucks.

    Oh, for the love of fuck, STOP TRYING TO MAKE PODCASTS A THING! If I wanted to listen to a podcast, it’d be of me, not some noob with little to no expertise, let alone college background in broadcast media.

    We get it! You think anyone can do this. Then, DO IT, and stop taking shortcuts!
