...was it me or did it sound like Richards didn't want to be there. Not a very excitable personality.
You guys are retarded if you think Carton doesn't know who Brad Richards is and can't discern all the sarcasm in that interview. Loved it.
I get that Carton is supposed to be funny but he is awful! Just obnoxious! Love Boomer but how he does his show day in and day out is beyond me. Just sad that the majority of the radio hosts in NY know so little about the greatest sport.
I didnt like the whole "yea no one here will know you guys hockey isnt important here but the only 18000 show up every game" ....even though that was joking I still didnt like that
Craig Carton is insufferable. Also, I wouldn't read too much into it. Some guys are just never comfortable with the media no matter how long they play. I know its NY and its a part of it, and Richards plays his role, but I don't think Richards will ever be or want to be a media darling in this town. He wants to get out there and play and I respect that.
if you listen to any of his interviews with Dallas and TB they are all the same way. It's his demeanor - quiet. Carter is the one that is painful to listen to.
I didn't think it was that he didn't want to be there. I think he is quiet, but more importantly he seems to be all business. So Carton does his thing, acting foolish, and yeah ... Brad's definitely not an excitable personality.
I have a love/hate relationship with Craig Carton. He could be a riot, but he frustrates me to no end when it comes to hockey. How do you not do the research before a guy comes in? I mean, he asked if he knew Torts??
I'm sure he knows who Richards is because it was the biggest FA signing in the off season that even WFAN reported on. His sarcasm was easy to tell with that. But he was serious when he asked Richards if was familiar with Tortorella - awful
@KevinDeLury Ugh, et tu Kevin? Carton is either doing schtick, shitting on the G-men, sometimes both. Not to mention he wouldn't know the game of hockey if it came up and cross checked him. How anyone finds that mook appealing is beyond me.
