You said when Gators lose, Gator fans never call.  Well I'm a Gator fan, and I'm calling, so what is your problem?

I think the Mets need better pitching. What do you think of this: trade Jason Vargas to Houston for Dallas Keuchel...

I'll be serious here. Recall crazy Carton talked a lot about his sports gambling on his morning show.  And obviously lost thousands. Sucks that he was so desperate that he tried to defraud innocent victims of their dollars to chase his gambling losses. Sad that he has four young children who may be separated from him for significant time. He frequently brought his youngest son, Anthony who was like 3 years old on the show.
I was going to submit the link with another title. "Carton may be put in a box"

What a jackass. Ripping innocent people off just to feed a gambling habit is really bad, almost as bad as Sarge is at his job.

Was he a Yankees fan boy?

I'm surprised how easily the show transitioned over to Boomer and Gio. I attribute that to two things: 1. Boomer's willingness to play the morning show game and his total lack of typical athlete on radio ego 2. Al Dukes, the super producer who produces results.

Gio is also pretty good. He's not as typical "shock jock" as Carton and he doesn't do that ridiculous thing Carton frequently did of bringing in huge hot takes just to stir the pot. Also, Gio's impressions of Francesa and Beningo are great.

My question, for people stupid enough to give their money to a sports radio jock to invest, how did they get money to invest in the first place? I hesitate to blame the victim, but these sound like the people who forget to breathe.

If he didn't have a wife and family I'd have a little sympathy. But not only did he hurt those he purposefully ripped off but he harmed his wife and children. No REAL man would do that.

I liked being entertained by you on NJ 101.5 and the FAN Craig, even when I thought you were a jerk. No excuse for what you have done to your family, Your actions weren't even taking a shot for them, just your greed. I hope you are able to use your mouth once out of prison to make things right for them (after apologizing).

bad talker, now in prison.
it's not funny and I'm not laughing at it. i listened to mike and mike because carton wasn't on there. and now his family and others are victimized too.
