NFT: Craig Carton update

Ned In Atlanta : 1/8/2018 10:49 am
Anyone else been following this train wreck? The New York post reported that over the holidays he was reaching out to friends and family asking for letters vouching for his character. The Postís legal expert seemed to think that means that a guilty plea or plea bargain was forthcoming. Heís now selling low rent t shirts on his website, presumably to make some money to pay his lawyers. Fascinating fall from grace
Donít typically like to kick people when theyíre down

This is an exception. This guy was a classless piece of unlistenable shit. Good riddance.

The only - ONLY - time Iíve ever cared what he had to say was when he laid into that penn state moron. Thatís it.
Show is much

Better without his influence on Boomer. Boomer when in serious mode, sticking to sports, staying away from the silliness and vulgarity, is in my opinion a good listen; Gio and Jerry are good compliments to him
As a retired teacher in NJ, I have no sympathy for Carton.

Carton made it his business to demean teachers every day on 101.5 in NJ. His buddy Christie would join him sometimes so they could double-team educators in NJ with their false accusations. Christie is gone on the 16th & presumably will never hold public office again. Carton,if the alleged charges prove true,will be spending some years behind bars! Karma's a bitch!
Link to the t shirts?

Well said. Generally, stomping on someone when theyíre down isnít a good look, and I keep in mind he has a family that has to suffer through this, but itís hard not to enjoy seeing this jackass get his comeuppance a little bit
He's doing a podcast where he interviews cops about

their craziest stories on the job. Pretty good listen actually.
It was obvious when he went after Francesa on the podcast  
Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 1/8/2018 12:41 pm : link
That he was looking for ad revenue.
I was a Carton fan  
aimrocky : 1/8/2018 12:43 pm : link
and listened to his first podcast and the Francesa one. It's obvious that he's trying to cover his legal fees. I haven't had any interest in listening to any of these new podcasts.
Guy is such a POS

He better get atleast 8 years

When they first started I actually liked the show because Boomer pretty much ignored Carton's crap and did a nice job talking all sports. Somewhere along the line the producers/station obviously instructed Boomer to play along, which I thought he never seemed comfortable doing. When he laughed along, it was usually after an awkward silence. Plus, as much as Carton used to like to play up their friendship, Boomer always seemed to to try to throw in at least a little distance there.

Absolutely, if Francesa was in his shoes Carton would mock him daily. He would probably have a countdown clock to his trial. Carton really is a despicable human being who will hopefully get what he deserves. I feel bad for his family but that just goes to show you the type of man that he is.

With 3 kids and living like he did. Something had to be up. Plus everyone who listened to the show on fridays or Mondayís knew this guy was a compulsive gambler. He would discuss his weekly ďwinningsĒ every Monday. Miraculously he never lost.

Addicted gamblers generally don't discuss their losses.

What I hated was how he seemed to advocate gambling as a great way of life. I wonder how many listeners who ordinarily wouldn't gamble placed bets based on his "lock it up" schtick. I always felt he sounded like a real degenerate when he was talking about his gambling and that it seemed very inappropriate to discuss on the air, not to mention it was illegal.
He was also closely tied into DraftKings / Fanduel

All you need to know about him  
TrueBlue56 : 1/9/2018 8:31 am : link
(As if more evidence was needed)

Was how he talked about Francesa after his retirement. Say what you want about Mike, but he took the high road when everything went down with Carton. Mike also offered words of encouragement to Boomer.

Carton? He used Mike to try and make himself relevant again and uses everything he can to knock him.

I wish carton would just go away. Could never stand his Howard stern wannabe shtick.
