Boomer roasting Manish Mehta on the FAN

JoeyBigBlue : 3/9/2018 8:20 am
If anyone is listening, Boomer Esiason is absolutely destroying Manish Mehta right now over a tweet Mehta put out saying Mo Wilkerson shouldnít sign with New Orleans because of his problem with alcoholism. Boomer is saying that Mehta is being completely unprofessional and this isnít public knowledge and a personal attack on Wilkerson. Just a great listen so far.
Boomer is right  
johnnyb : 3/9/2018 8:28 am : link
Saying Mo "has issues with alcohol"is synonymous with calling him an alcoholic. It was a personal attack on Mo and if you read Mehta consistently, he has not been kind to Mo (not that he deserves kindness).
I don't know.  
Keith : 3/9/2018 8:32 am : link
I can understand that there is a difference between issues with alcohol and alcoholism, but the bigger issue is why even write it in the first place? Boomer went after him and it was a good listen, but Boomer is a Jets homer.

Boomer is in NO WAY a Jets homer. He's as critical of them as anybody. You must not listen to the show often.
Oh I've listened plenty through the years.  
Keith : 3/9/2018 8:39 am : link
He most certainly is a massive Jets chearleader.
Itís stupid anyway  
Rflairr : 3/9/2018 8:40 am : link
If a person has an alcohol problem, theyíll get it anywhere they play.

Mehta is an idiot anyway. Reminds you of his vendetta against Marrone
If he is a jets honer  
nygiants16 : 3/9/2018 8:42 am : link
Why would he be defending Wilkerson so hard?
Mehta has been on with Joe and Evan  
figgy2989 : 3/9/2018 8:51 am : link
In the past and always comes across as a snarky douche.

How he and Gary Meyers still have a job at the Daily News is beyond me. I am glad Boomer went after him.
Yesterday Boomer said Mehta has burned all his

bridges with the jets and no one will talk to him. I was surprised he would say that on the air.

Why? He is right and said the same when Mehta was on the air today. If you are a current Jets player or coach, why would you ever speak to this guy?
So New Orleans is the only city with alcohol and a party scene?  
BigBlue4You09 : 3/9/2018 8:59 am : link
What a stupid comment is right
He may as well stay away from Green Bay...  
MattyKid : 3/9/2018 9:03 am : link
if alcohol consumption is the problem
Link - ( New Window )
havent read him.  
2cents : 3/9/2018 9:04 am : link
but listening to that interview and hearing some of the other issues with menish that have popped up over the year, the guy just seems like a smug asshole. Trying to play it of like he is doing Mo a favor, what a joke, clearly all out of spite. Someone should kick this idiot in the shin.
Mehta isn't the only beat writer in this town

And the funny thing is Dolan is killed for trying to keep the daily news away from the knicks and has a strict media policy...

Kill Dolan for a lot of things but this is one of things he does right and he is killed for it
Mehta

Oh poor Dolan. Give me a break, why in the world would anyone stand up for him even on this topic?
Even if Mo had a problem with alcohol  
Mike from Ohio : 3/9/2018 9:30 am : link
why would that mean he should stay away from New Orleans? Is that the only NFL city where alcohol is readily available? Sounds like he was just looking for an excuse to bring up alcohol.
The definition of "homer"  
joeinpa : 3/9/2018 9:35 am : link
Would have a picture of Paul Dottino next to it.

Boomer makes no secret of his rooting interest in all NY teams.

But I would not catergorized him as a homer for any. He gives honest assessment. Some times positive, sometimes negative.

I wasn't aware that NOLA was

Iíve lsitened for years and that is completely false. He bashes them non stop. He is most certainly not a homer
Boomer is a Boomer homer

he's also insanely bitter he missed the really big money.
Other Cities Serve Alcohol

Yea, I get it New Orleans - party city, but this just in Manish - Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, etc. - they also have places to get a drink.

I've listened to Boomer forever. I never felt he was a Jets-homer, but I do detect an anti-Giants bias (but that might be based on my own lack of objectivity regarding the Giants).

He's mentioned a bunch of times that he grew up a Colts fan (Bert Jones was his idol growing up) and now that his good buddy Frank Reich is coaching the Colts, it will probably be even more pronounced.

Now, his Rangers-bias is a whole other story....
Ok, I would like to revise my statement.  
Keith : 3/9/2018 2:50 pm : link
He's a Jets cheerleader. He's a huge Jets fan and everything he does and says is slanted towards the Jets.
I have heard Boomer more than once  
steve in ky : 3/9/2018 2:54 pm : link
say that he isn't a Jets fan.

Oh he most certainly is.  
Keith : 3/9/2018 2:55 pm : link
By the way, that show is listenable now that Carton isn't on it.
I think many Giants fans read into things he says and  
steve in ky : 3/9/2018 3:00 pm : link
form the opinion that he is a Jets fan.

He did say that growing up his father was a Giants fan, but I don't think being in the business he is a fan of either team. While he openly roots for the Mets, Knicks and Rangers I think football is now just his "business" and fandom if there was any in his youth has long been removed.

Agreed. Even worse is he didn't have the balls to put it in print. He fucking tweeted it. Piss poor journalism IMO.

It probably wouldn't have gotten past his editor for fear of getting hit with a suit against the Daily News.
Boomer is a rangers homer  
Ten Ton Hammer : 3/9/2018 7:51 pm : link
and a Boomer homer. Nobody's a bigger Esiason fan than him.

He's also sharply critical of Eli in ways that make me feel like he has some jealousy issues to work through.
Even if he was a homer  
UConn4523 : 3/9/2018 7:57 pm : link
whatís that got to do with his interview with Mehta? Everyone on he radio today is lambasting Mehta, Jets fans and non Jets fans alike. The guy is a clown and Iím glad Boomer destroyed him. The liberties journalists take these days still have no reprocussions - hopefully a public shaming and being blackballed by an NFL team is a good start.
