    [QUOTE=Mike D;3872835]I love calling in to his show..

    This passed Friday..

    Mike From Jersey:

    "Hey Mike, Happy Hanukah, Mike let me ask you a question, could you beat Rex Ryan in a 40 yard dash"...click.[/QUOTE]

    That was great!:D

    Then, he plays it off and starts talking about it seriously, referring to his knee surgeries etc. :rolleyes:

    Guaranteed one of his lackies took a tongue lashing for that, he was in a foul mood. Didnt he open the show yelling at his producer for moving around in the booth?



    [QUOTE=jetsfan1983;3873221]Truly looking forward to the show today.

    Giants lost in the worst fashion possible and the Jets won against a team that nobody can question.

    [/QUOTE]

    One thing Fatty knows is when guys tune in expecting him to act a certain way. He'll play off the Giant loss, and minimize the Jet victory.

    Book it.:yes:

    [QUOTE=ikazippy;3872869]But his reputation won't save him from being thrown under the bus by Giant fans. But who cares as long as the Giants lose.[/QUOTE]

    His reputation got him the bs penalty last week in the night game for diving into the end zone....this guy is a showboat but really is a hell of a talent....little guy but has just killed the giants and a lot of other teams since he has been in this league

    one thing I'll never understand

    WHY would ANY Jet fan listen to this fat pompous barrel of lard?

    It only helps his ratings and keeps him on the air. He hates the Jets (since his girlfriend quit as Coach and GM) and he exploits and uses ANY jet fan who listens to him for purpose of getting ratings.

    TURN THE FAT TURD OFF, for godsake

    The same reason I read your posts lecturing other Jet fans about how to be Jet fans every day. Why, I just saw you lecturing someone who asked an innocent question about playoff tickets just a moment ago...

    :rolleyes:

    [QUOTE=BigJet85;3872827]I wouldnt even bother he sucks and just puts me in an awful mood when i hear his fat voice.[/QUOTE]

    this couldn't be more true....Francessa is a very negative guy- He's just a jerk. Even if you're a Yankee/Giants fan...he can't have many friends

    [QUOTE=Jet Nut;3872970]Or he could have forgotten where he was and spiked the ball before scoring.

    It was him hot dogging it.

    Scoring with one or two seconds on the clock wouldn't have changed a thing.[/QUOTE]

    Agreed. I mean if there's a second or two left on the clock, they just need to kick off. How often do you see a game end on a kick return for a TD? :rolleyes:

    exactly- you watch, he'll have a concillatory tone towards big blew today; he'll rip them but won't mock them as he would were it the Jets that collapsed yesterday....

    "It was a loss for the Giants. The Giants had a bad game, and they lost. No biggie, ogay? They lost, only one game. Only one game they lost. Ogay?

    Now, the Jets, they were lucky to have beaten Pitt. Shouldn't have won. Lucky breaks, non-calls, ogay? Played awful. Sanchez is garbage................"

    His bias against the Jets was clear in his handling of the Alosi affair. One minute he slams them for ruining his career by making him the fall guy, the next moment he says that NOBODY in the NFL believes that he acted alone. Well, which is it you nitwit?

    When did this all start, btw? I think Woody & Tannenbaum pulled all access to players and coaches from FAN (more specifically from his show) but I can't remember why, and Fatso alluded to it on his show last week.

    After they beat the COlts last year. He was "outraged" that Rex went from joking about the Colts giving them an xmas present to boasting about the win.

    He was so over the top about it, I guess it got back to the Jets.

    Alosi affair? not to be offensive bro but you're about 23 years late ....

    fatcessa ripped into the Jets after they beat big blew and knocked them out of the playoffs in '88 claiming they played above their heads- wasn't big blews fault...

    he told dick steinberg during the pete carroll press conference he wished he (steinberg) had been fired....

    his attitude and interviews with steve gutman (not a favorite of mine either) in the mid 90's was nothing less than disgusting....if any interviewer handled themselves the way fatcessa did in many of those gutman interviews in they would've have been suspended, if not fired....

    he used to refer to Leon Hess as "Mr Magoo"....of course once parcells took over that tone changed completely....

    to be completely honest i'd rather fatcessa keep hating the Jets- just makes winning that more enjoyable....

    "Mr. Magoo" quickly became "Mr. Hess"....

    It was laughably transparent.

    Nice history lesson for the youngins.

    Wouldn't be surprised if he did 2 hours on another Mickey Mantle book before getting to the Jets game.

    Agreed, but that is the point where Mike says he got cut off from player access.

    He is already crying about if the Bears win tonight, then their last game vs. Packers would be meaningless for them and if GB beats the NYG then it is not fair and of course the Jets can catch a break if the bears win tonight....

    If the Bears win out...they get the #2 seed in the NFC..

    I assume, to just about everyone but Mikey, that would be worth playing for
