THE SHIT HITS THE WFAN: QUICK ANALYSIS

Here is what we know:

1. Russo is out
2. Mike signed a new deal
3. RUSSO WILL NOT MAKE ANOTHER APPEARANCE ON WFAN

It looks to me that Russo lost in a power play. Mike and Chris were not going to work together again. There was a power play like many others that we have seen in sports and Russo lost. I believe what happened here was it became Mike and Chernoff against Chris and Chris was not going to win that battle. Russo will likely land at Sirius according all web gossip.

This one is tough because I think that majority of us on this board and other blogs agree that the better solo show is Russo. I am not happy with the idea of the Mike Francesca solo show. Given that he has a new deal, he probably has set the terms on who his partner could or would be. I wonder if there would be some kind of option where Mike would have rotating guest co-host. Phil Simms one day, Jim Nantz another, all the authors of JFK books another.

IF YOU THOUGHT MIKE'S EGO WAS BIG FIVE MINUTES AGO. WAIT TILL 1pm FRIDAY

I want you to let me go! I am sick and tired of you subjugating me to that fat asshole. Do you hear me? In a Big Spot, I come through, while my overweight asshole partner is in Saratoga!!!!!!!
I want the $1.4 million a year, Chernoff! Don't cut off the callers, I am a 25 year vet at this. Licata can lick my testicals! Malusis, Why are you getting married three hours from New York?
Mel Karmazin, How are you? You look TREMENDOUS today. Howard Stern, it is such a pleasure to meet you... Scott Farell, I remember you.

Time to buy stock in Sirius. They've got a new customer in me. Also time for you guys to claim the URL MaddogOnSirius.com because I'm hooked to your show analysis. I don't know what your real day jobs are, but stick with what you've been doing here!

I get XM which will soon merge with Sirius. I would listen, but it will be national. Just not sure how it will be as good as it is now.

It's a very sad day!!!

Mike is an arrogant POS who will basically take the callers out of the show with his "I know everything" attitude.

Mad Dog could be hard to take at times as well but he was the guy you just "had to like" with his goofy ways and their were many.


It's also a sad state of affairs when 2 guys who make millions talking about sports can't get along. Maybe if they had to work a "real job" for a day they would see things differently?
