Mike and Chris. Our BFFs

Looking at the comments for the petition post, it's cool to see some people against signing a petition because they don't want the duo to survive or as one put it, 'I could care less what happens to Mike'. Someone on mikefrancesa.com, wrote 'I can't sign that, I am in love with the idea of Mike and Sid being teamed up starting this September.' But let's be fair. We are all gathered here because we enjoy the spectacle that is Mike and the Mad Dog. We relish making fun of them, picking apart the stupid things they say, getting offended by their latent racism and overt arrogance. So although I respect the whole idea of not caring about their impending breakup and the whole bit, I don't buy it for one second. We want them on that dial. We need them on that dial. They are part of our DNA. As Hyman Roth said in GII, "this is the business we've chosen".

Did anyone catch Boomer and Carton making fun of Francesa this morning? It was around 6:15. They were talking about how Ivan Rodriguez was unhappy about losing playing time to Brandon Inge so he asked for a trade.

Then, Carton said that he liked Brandon Inge, maybe not as much as some other people at WFAN but he likes him.

Then for maybe the next 45 seconds. Whenever one of them said the name Brandon Inge, the other one would go off on a rant, "Brandon Inge, I like him, I like him a lot. Real good player that Brandon Inge."

I dunno, maybe you had to be there, but I figured I'd share that with those of you who aren't up that early.

Is anyone a Sirius (or XM since the merger cleared) subscriber? I would follow the Angry Puppie over to Sirius. I wouldn't follow Fatso though. Likewise I would still listen to WFAN if Doggie was there, but if he's gone, not so much. Add that to your petition.

You NEED to discuss the pain that is Kars-4-Kids. Serenity now.

Amazing:

Plea to WFAN: End this f*****g torture

Doggie has to stick around - he has a contract (as he himself has confirmed) and WFAN would not dump him altogether.

I can see Mike going satellite OR he could do a midday show over at 770 after Imus and replace Sliwa's show. He could do current events and sports a la when he had to fill in for Imus last year.

No, when I said I could care less what happens to Mike, I meant it. If they stay together, fine, but I don't want to hear Mike alone. He stinks. I would still listen to Russo alone, however.

And my family apparently has XM, but I've never used it.

Put Mike on the Stinks list.

I think they both get a huge "terrible job" for not being there on the trading deadline. One of the biggest - if not THE biggest - sports talk days of the year. It's all opinion. Always among the biggest traffic days on ESPN.com. Terrible job.

It's August!!!! Can we talk to Mike about the Rays or is Mike going to puss out and be on vacation?

I never got that cars for kids thing. Why would someone donate their car? What would a kid even do with a car?

i'm a big fan of the site, but don't say they're racist. they're not. even as a parody it's flat, because its groundless. keep up the good work otherwise.

Carton is DOG with a measurable IQ

Racist?? Absolutely. And the Sean Taylor story is a perfect illustration......racism and pure laziness.

There is NO WAY that they didn't make racist presumptions....over and over again...
