Craig Carton: Cincinnati is ‘A Bunch Of Sensitive Snowflakes’ If I Don’t Praise Bengals

“The sensitivity and the snowflake-ism that’s happening in Cincinnati right now fascinates me.”

Craig Carton

WFAN host Craig Carton recently found himself in the crosshairs of Cincinnati Bengals fans, and he didn’t understand why some got so worked up over what he said on his FS1 show.

On Carton & Roberts on Tuesday, Carton said what started the firestorm reaction from Bengals fans was that he believed that the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs are the two teams with the best chance to win the Super Bowl representing the AFC. He said if he had to lean into a third team, the Bengals would be that team, but he didn’t find that the defending AFC champions had all the tools to raise a Lombardi Trophy.

“I didn’t say they’re not good,” Carton said. “They’re not good enough to win the Super Bowl.”

Carton mentioned some of the more extreme responses from Bengals fans assumed Carton was drunk or that he had a stroke. He found that some Cincinnati fans were just being offended for the sake of being easily offended.

“This is the funny thing. The sensitivity and the snowflake-ism that’s happening in Cincinnati right now fascinates me,” he said. “Unless I came out and said the Bengals are the best team in football and they’re on their way to another Super Bowl, they’re gonna react like a bunch of sensitive snowflakes. Jesus.”

Co-host Evan Roberts tried to flip things on Carton, who is a New York Jets fan. Roberts asked if Carton wouldn’t take offense if he said the Jets stood no shot at making the playoffs this season, even though they’re in the thick of the hunt.

“I wouldn’t accuse them of being drunk or in stroke recoveries, right?” Carton said. “I wouldn’t say oh you’ve never watched a football game in your entire life if that’s your take.”

Craig just found it interesting how a take he deemed non-controversial seemed to draw so much ire from the Bengals fanbase.

“It’s amazing how I woke up an entire nation of fans,” he said. “I do appreciate everybody watching, but this is crazy. Crazy, crazy, crazy. They’re 9-4. They haven’t even won their own division yet.”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
