Sports radio is dead. Carlin seems like a nice enough guy but he's vanilla.

Carlin sucks. Hopefully they get rid of Jon Ritchie too.

I guess he doesn't have to pretend to be a Philly sports fan any longer. That was a dumb hire from day one.

I’m still perplexed how Hollis Thomas has a job in broadcasting. Nothing but mumbling and giggling with minimal “players insight” occasionally sprinkled in. I truly wonder what data Spike Eskin is getting to retain this guy.

It's amazing that Carlin has an on air radio career. He must have pictures. I presume he no longer does play by play because he has without a doubt the worst broadcasting voice I have ever heard. Listening to him doing Rutgers games was excruciating. Dogs were covering their ears.

That boy does not have ANY sports knowledge at all. Just listening to him try to talk sports with people he should be a used car salesman in Camden.

Carlin was never gonna work here.

for starters, he cannot come in here and pretend to give a shit about philly teams. you can see right through that.

2nd -- his voice annoys the shit out of me. it's a worse version of tennessee tuxedo.

"come along now, chumley!"

3rd -- disagree on Ritchie completely. think he and 'the hammer' have a great thing going. wouldn't surprise me if they move them to 6-10 slot once cataldi retires.

He does seem like a good guy, I just thought it was ridiculous that WIP thought the fans would buy him as a voice of Philly.

I agree with you about WFAN. 3's a crowd for sports talk radio.

think John Marks is gonna be the long term partner with Ike. Macnow was mentioned by Carlin on the initial intro so he may be gapping til Marks can move over permanently.

Carlin's a nice guy and i wish him well but 2 - 6 getting better regardless.

Honest to god I couldn’t understand a word he said. It was as if he had been possessed by the devil and was speaking in tongues. Loudly.

Carlin did this Skip Bayless-esque shtick the other week about Ajayi. I turned it off, not interested in that.

I like Richie though.

Win -Win.

We win by losing Carlin. NY wins by not having the soon to be ex Gov. Christie as a host.
