@Phive They're too safe is really what it is. They do nothing risky at all (the closest thing to controversial was Golic's recreation of the Kim Kardashian photo, which wasn't one at all). They're company men and really do everything by the books. Everything on FAN is a call driven show, so you'll get some crazy personalities to call in, which makes it entertaining.

Perhaps Fox should try and negotiate the rights for the event. I guarantee Kevin Burkhardt and Gabe Kapler would be much more appealing than Kruk and Berman.

@ShawnDiIorio Meanwhile there is still 8 years before the Qatari World Cup were to happen. There's still PLENTY of time to ditch them and move it to a better place (basically somewhere that has an actual established infrastructure).

SNY does a similar thing with a Mets game. Once a year they'll broadcast a game from the Pepsi Porch. I wish more teams would do something similar (one game a year broadcast from the crowd).

I think most Mets fans saw the writing on the wall when he got hired by FOX for football. It's a bittersweet, moment. I selfishly want him to stay with the Mets but this move makes complete and total sense for him. Good luck Kevin. #BackToYouGare

The move makes sense when you think about it. He's already Marcellus' radio partner, he has on-air experience, with ESPN as well. Glad to see him officially back on TV.

Completely agree. In what world do you not go for the jugular and try to clinch a championship. It's a similar mindset to the Nationals and Strasburg last October. It's not a perfect comparison but I think the analogy is there.
