Andrew Fillipponi Criticizes Cleveland Callers After Deshaun Watson Suspension Announced

“That’s misrepresenting completely,” Lima argued. “I am not gonna hear Pittsburgh trash try to demonize us today. That is not gonna happen.”

After it was announced Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson was suspended for the first six games of the upcoming NFL season, Ken Carmen and Anthony Lima took calls from Browns fans for their reaction to the news, and Pittsburgh’s 93.7 The Fan host Andrew Fillipponi listened in and didn’t like what he heard.

“Josh in Florida” called into The Ken Carman Show with Anthony Lima Monday morning and immediately shouted “Super Bowl! Super Browns!’, before the show hung up on him.

“We celebrate things that are meant to be celebrated, and we can be a buzzkill at times when there needs to be a buzzkill. He wanted to do ‘Super Bowl, Super Browns’,” Lima said.

“Can I have a day here for a second, please? ‘Cause tomorrow they ain’t gonna be listenin’. The ‘you know who’s’ out there ain’t gonna be listening. You know damn well who I’m talking about,” Carman said.

“Those people who that watch golf tournaments and think ‘what’s the phone number? He just committed a violation!’ people. ‘My goodness that’s a hazard. You can’t do that’,” Lima replied.

“You’re putting me in an awkward situation here, Josh,” Carman said.

It just so happened that Andrew Fillipponi, host of The PM Team with Poni & Mueller on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh tuned in just in time to hear that call.

“That’s misrepresenting completely,” Lima argued. “I am not gonna hear Pittsburgh trash try to demonize us today. That is not gonna happen. Maybe I’ll hear it from other corners of the world. Probably not Houston either. I don’t really wanna hear from them today, either. I understand that a lot of people think that this is too light. Fine. Fine. Air your grievances. Not gonna hear it from people in Pittsburgh.”

“There’s a lot of teams with skeletons in their closets. I don’t know if you really wanna go doing that. But if ‘Poni wants to do it, ‘Poni wants to do it,” Carman added.

Carman and Lima shot back at Fillipponi, pointing out his tweet from Friday about the love the city of Pittsburgh held for former quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback was scheduled that evening to throw out the first pitch at the Pirates game. Roethlisberger was accused of sexual assault twice during his playing career and in 2010 was originally suspended six games for violating the league’s Personal Conduct Policy, like Watson. That suspension was ultimately reduced to a four-game suspension.

On Monday, the Pardon My Take podcast dropped their latest episode which featured an interview with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Big Cat, one of the show’s co-hosts, is a Chicago Bears fan and has spent a lot of time not liking Rodgers publicly.

Colin Cowherd saw one of the many clips that the show shared and brought up how much he thought that Rodgers took ribbing from Big Cat and the podcast in stride. That’s when Joy Taylor offered that the interview could help Rodgers in the long run.

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said. “When you can show that you don’t take yourself that seriously, all of the animosity that people have towards you just kind of starts to wither away.”

She added that the disarming quality helps if people don’t perceive Rodgers as thinking he has all the answers.

“When people feel like they are projecting ‘I know more than you’ and ‘I’ve got it all figured out’ energy, people are like: ‘you got to be the smartest guy on the room all time time? You’re not.’

This is so likeable,” Taylor said. “It’s really funny.”

Cowherd agreed and even said he is probably going to go listen to it after the show.

“Aaron is genuinely laughing as they make fun of him and that is an incredibly endearing quality.”

Dennis Eckersley

On Monday, Dennis Eckersley announced that he was going to retire from the Boston Red Sox television booth at the end of this season. The current NESN analyst is leaving after twenty years on the air with the team.

The news broke during Toucher and Rich on 98.5 the Sports Hub and it gave show co-host Rich Shertenlieb a chance to mention the news and praise the departing personality.

“When Eckersley got in there (the booth),” Shertenlieb started, “he was great. It made all of them better when Dennis Eckersley was around. It’s going to be a huge loss.”

The show spent the rest of the segment talking about what Eckersley offered that made him so unique. That’s when Matt McCarthy, fill-in for Fred Toucher, said that Eckersley was exactly what you wanted in an analyst.

“You want someone that’s going to give you an opinion,” McCarthy said. “Eck gave you an opinion. He’ll be missed.”

McCarthy also pointed out that this is the latest major shakeup that has happened to the television broadcast in recent years.

“There’s no doubt this is a blow,” McCarthy added. “This is a tremendous loss to that Red Sox broadcast to which has taken a lot of hits over the years with the loss of Jerry Remy, the decision to move on from Don Orsillo and now Dennis Eckersley retiring… they are going to have to find an entertainer in there.
