Felger & Mazz

Weekdays 2pm-6pm

As we get closer to Super Bowl LVII, it seems pretty clear that New England Patriots fans do not want to see the Kansas City Chiefs win the big game. So Felger, Mazz, and Murray want to know…why do they hate the Chiefs?

  • Why do they hate Mahomes?

    Felger: Bob in the car. He’ll lead us off today on Agenda Free Friday. Hi, Bob.

    Bob in the car: Hey, I just have an issue with the with all the bashing the Pats fans saying that we’re worried that the Chiefs are going to catch the Patriots dynasty. Listen, Mahomes is a generational talent and they’re on a great streak, but he’s like 25% of the way to a Brady career. I mean, it doesn’t bother me even if he gets there, but it’s certainly not why I’m rooting against them. I’ve just been rooting against them for years and I’m going to continue to do so.

    Felger: Why? Why?

    Bob in the car: …….

    Jim Murray: “I don’t want to answer your question”.

    Felger: Why? I mean, why are you rooting against them?

    Jim Murray: Yeah. I mean, I can’t explain it.

    Felger: Because of the sister? His brother?

    Jim Murray: The wife, not sister.

    Felger: Wife, whatever, whoever. Sorry. I guess it is his wife. His wife and his brother are obnoxious, that’s why? Or Travis Kelce barks after a game. That’s why. Is that really why?

    Jim Murray: It’s five straight AFC championship games. The guy’s the most talented player in the league. You got “quarterback envy”. He’s great. Your guy’s a question mark. It’s all of that thing.

  • Does the league favor the Chiefs?

    Felger: Zach in Boston. What do you got Zach?

    Zach in Boston: Hey Felger, I just think that the NFL pushes Mahomes and the Chiefs too much. And I honestly think that last week against the Bengals they gave them a game and they gave them a do over in the fourth quarter. That was just bull.

    Felger: Okay. So, Mazz, do you think the league favors the Chiefs? Pushes the Chiefs on us too much unnecessarily?

    Mazz: No! I mean, look I think it’s good for them that it’s Mahomes, but no. I mean this whole thing please.

    Felger: It’s so easy, Mazz. It’s so easy to bait these people.

    Mazz: Oh god, you know why? Because it’s an exposed nerve. And you know what? In fact, during the break, you know what I did?

    Felger: What did you do?

    Mazz: I went out to my desk and pulled out something that Murray gave me years ago, so to speak. So here you go. (Train Whistle) I’m on the Chiefs train. I’m on the Chiefs train. Take that. Suck It. (Train Whistle) Chiefs train! Here we go. Chiefs! Chiefs! Chiefs!

    Felger: Because all it takes is 2 minutes of listening to these people and you become a Chiefs fan. It’s like….

    Mazz: I’m on the Chiefs, baby! (Train Whistle).

    Felger: Do you see what you’ve done? See what you’ve done already, Boston.

  • Is Mahomes too fun to watch?

    Felger: Steve in Vermont. What do you got for us, Steve?

    Steve in Vermont: Hey, back to why we all hate Mahomes or whatever. I think it kind of goes into why we hate Steph Curry so much with Golden State….It’s too easy for him. We watched New England for years dink and dunk and, you know, 20 play drive, and then Mahomes gets the ball, boom. Tyreek Hill, 2 seconds…touchdown.

    Felger: Steve So you’re saying Boston hates people who are really, really talented? Since when?

    Jim Murray: “The right way is the slow way. We hate fast scoring!”

    Mazz: “Yeah, I don’t like the way they play”.

    Felger: He’s too fun to watch! Too good!

  • Do they hate Travis Kelce?

    Felger: Ryan in Springfield with a Super Bowl thought. Go ahead, Ryan.

    Ryan in Springfield: Hey, so I’m actually rooting for Andy Reid. I think he’s a good coach. I think he’s an okay guy. I’m rooting for him. Patrick Mahomes completely indifferent about. If he wins, he wins. If he doesn’t, he doesn’t. But I am rooting against Kansas City because I do not want to see Travis Kelce with a smile on his face after the game. He is just the absolute worst.

    Felger: Why? Why? Why? Why is he the absolute worst?

    Jim Murray: I mean, he’s a pompous ass.

    Felger: But has he done anything wrong? Has he ever been arrested or?

    Jim Murray: No.

    Felger: Has there ever been a thing like that?

    Jim Murray: No he just loves himself some…himself. Travis Kelce is Travis Kelsce’s number one fan.

    Felger: So?

    Jim Murray: I find him annoying. Good player. I find him annoying.

    Mazz: Murray, would you take him on your team?

    Jim Murray: Sure.

    Mazz: Yeah. I feel the same way. And, you know, so at the end of the day, I get past the wrapping paper, like, you know, to me, I’d take him in a minute. I think the guy is a freaking weapon.

    Felger: Because he’s obnoxious, overconfident or cocky or that, so that’s it? That’s really what you dislike? Those kind of athletes. I’m not talking to you, Murray, I’m talking about Boston. You know what I mean. It’s like, No, no, no. He’s really good. The Chiefs are really good. And they’re, you know, they’re sort of duplicating what you did. They’re starting to anyway. And that’s why you don’t like them! Let’s be honest with ourselves, Boston! Let’s level with ourselves.
