For those of you who haven't yet heard the story, this is a pretty good summary.
If you feel about this the way I do, you can email the program director at WBCN, whose name is Dave Wellington, at [email protected].
In case it's helpful, here's the message I sent him:
Apparently their incident with Mayor Menino years ago wasn't enough to convince WBCN management that putting Opie and Anthony back on the air in Boston was a bad idea. Now that they've earned the ire of every sports fan in the region with similar behavior, perhaps they'll reconsider. How totally embarrassing for the station that owns the broadcast rights to Patriots games. Doubly embarrassing? The fact that you could see this coming a mile away, and STILL WBCN gave these clowns a platform in this city.
I hope BCN will do the right thing this time around and get Opie and Anthony off the air in Boston, once and for all.
We can't do anything about the hatred the nation at large is harboring for the Patriots or the nonstop bullshit from the Don Shulas of the world that tries to take away from what the team is accomplishing this season. But I'm of the belief that we damn sure do have a recourse when it surfaces in our own city, where Pats fans comprise the majority of the audience, especially when it happens on the Patriots' own "rock radio network."I'll admit I'm pouring some of my frustration with Pats-hating in general into this, but you can't yell "Fire" in a crowded theater and then claim free speech. You can't be a broadcast personality in a city where a sports franchise is under incredible scrutiny, purposely report a libelous story, and then claim you intended humor. It's not a joke--just ridiculous irresponsibility for which there should be consequences.
