They were talking about Adrian Peterson and his son and without any facts whatsoever, proceeded to paint him as a complete monster for playing on Sunday instead of being with the child. And then started some thinly veiled discussion about how they might have committed some physical abuse against his ex for leaving the kid with the boyfriend, had they been in a similar situation.
^there's a reason, even as a die hard boston sports fan, I don't listen to boston sports talk radio. even in the best of times, during championships, superbowls, world series wins boston sports talk radio will find a negative angle and just run with it (often against their own).
but i do have ESPN NY radio on a lot in my car, because I can be detached and bemuse myself while driving around the city. Stephen A Smith, Colin Cowherd, Mike Lupica, Michael Kay are master trolls who masquerade around as journalists.
its like listening to a radio version of SF CE threads. if you can stay far away enough from the subject matter its highly entertaining.
