    Talking NY POST RIDICULES MIKE FRANCESA

    www.nypost.com

    =TELL IT LIKE IT ISN’T: Mike Francesa’s endless parade of faulty info and bad predictions is reminiscent of late war propaganda expert Tokyo Rose,
    The statement later noted Francesa surpassed Tokyo Rose — no relation to Howie Rose — because she did make good on her promises to play popular music for Allied sailors and soldiers throughout World War II.

    Wonder which one put Francesa over the top. Perhaps it was Tuesday’s bit when he knowingly declared John Tortorella’s job as Rangers coach was in no jeopardy, whatsoever. You know how he says such things, as if he actually knows.

    Of course, Francesa knows as much about the few things he admits to not knowing well — hockey, Al Alburquerque — as he does about those he claims superior expertise — baseball, basketball, football, golf, horseracing and the absence of a sales tax in Connecticut (startling news to its residents). And the sum of that knowledge is nothing.

    Yet, he declared Tortorella, known to hockey fans as divisive and abrasive — and coming off a five-game playoff loss — safe. As if he knew!

    And he referred to Tortorella as “Torts,” another transparency to promote himself as a XXX-L

    big shot. “Torts” is among the legions of Francesa’s imaginary big-time buddies throughout sports, entertainment, global politics, waste management and those who employ drivers.

    Given Francesa’s track record for being both colossally and immediately wrong — Volume Six is nearly complete — Tortorella was fired the next day. And then Francesa credited himself for breaking the story — the one he knowingly assured us, a day prior, would not happen!

    If we were as arrogantly, consistently and sensationally wrong as Francesa, we either would have ceased making “superior knowledge-based” predictions or begun to have fun with our failures.

    Either way, we would cease pretending to an audience that knows better, that we know better, and that our lowly listeners are lucky to share the air we breathe — at least after we exhale. But Francesa is all gall, no shame.

    And he wasn’t done with the Rangers. An hour or so after Tortorella was sacked — as if on Francesa’s reverse-cue — he said, “The name I’m hearing” to replace Tortorella “is Lindsey Ruff.” Said it three times — “Lindsey Ruff.”

    Funny stuff but none of that is in any danger of trickling into Mike Francesa's personal bathosphere.

    He's managed to piss off so many, it makes me wonder why anyone actually listens. I don't. He's a fat windbag that makes an asshat out of himself on a daily basis.

    What's worse is that the joke is actually on us. For so many that constantly listen to his show, they hate him and they want to hear what he'll say next.

    In other words, any publicity, good or bad, benefits him and his ratings.

    If everyone just stopped listening to him, including the media, he'd be out the door in a NY minute.

    This article is really just the tip of the iceberg which is why I NEVER listen to Fatcessa's on the air garbage, he is a legend in his own mind.

    And to be honest, if it wasn't for posters here complaining about him over the last 10 + years (The first time I ever heard about him was on this board), I probably wouldn't even know his name or who he was.

    I could care less but the NY Post needs to get back to putting up Bad headlines like the one involving Wilpon and Rivera a day after the Mets had a big win over the Yankees.


    NY POST = DAILY INQUIRER.




    Francessa is still FAT, though.

    Mike Francessa is to sports news what a classic heel character is to the WWE.

    It is human nature to root for David, not Goliath. People tune in in hopes of hearing Mike get defeated.

    He's the greatest troll of Jets fans in the history of the world.

    I just got a new car with satellite radio, which has completely replaced Francesser during my afternoon commute. Best thing ever.

    And a handful of fans calling him out helps him how much?

    Insider industry backbiting, they have no qualms about stabbing their 'colleagues' (aka competition) in the back, why would you consider this worthy of duplicating?

    Mushnick bashes Francessa on a regular basis. The only problem is one is just as sanctimonious and condescending as the other!

    WFAN is horrible. Commercials, 20/20 sports flashes and almost zero sports talk and when there is sports talk it's usually some no-energy, know nothing loser like Paige or Giants fans like Fatso and Malussis who hate the Jets.

    Malussis readily admits to being a Redskins fan.
