If he wants a long term deal...

Why does anybody

Listen to him? Especially about the Giants. He literally has no clue what they are going to do. He's really an embarrassment for NY sports radio.
When was the last time he really broke anything involving the giants?  
Ten Ton Hammer : 3/17/2017 4:47 pm : link
I think the days of him being familiar with the team's thinking or having any sources may have left with Ernie Accorsi, or possibly even Parcells.

What a f'in ass. I too wonder why anyone listens to him.

He does not know sports any more, but he's a blowhard who always thinks he's the smartest guy in the room, so to speak.

Definitely EA. I remember Francesa once outed EA as his Giants source. LOL. He used to have all the good stuff about Coughlin and Accorsi clashes. Really haven't heard much good Giants info since then. He admits he doesn't have the same relationship with Reese or the front office. His great source for the Jets was Mr. T. Francesa is the one who leaked out that Eli Apple was the Dolphins pick before Tunsil fell and the Giants took Apple.

ESPN NY guys have no sources at all for the two teams. It is painful listening to Canty pretend like he has a source in the organization when you realize that BBI knows more about the organization workings than he does.
I stayed on the bandwagon longer than most  
bceagle05 : 3/17/2017 5:00 pm : link
but I can hardly listen to him anymore. Even Michael Kay's show is better at this point - he sucks, but Lagreca is pretty good and they at least talk about different things and keep the show moving.

Canty is really infuriating. I'm at the point where I regret that he was even on that championship team. He was a small time bit player, and built a radio personality out of talking like he was an all pro.

You think he's never going to make a mistake, I think he knows way more than any other sports radio person in New York which is really not saying much. I will miss the show when he leaves.

Listening to him and Hahn you think that the Giants defense was top 5 in 2011 instead my lasting image of Canty is Drew Brees channeling his inner Vick running over Canty in the Super Dome to score a touch down. ESPN played that clip so many times.

Best moment was when Dave Rothenberg shitted on Canty and the 2011 run defense saying just how bad they were right to his face. Canty actually got pissed and Dave didn't give a shit.

A) the Yankees were in a playoff series with the Tigers at the time (if memory serves), so he should have known
B) it wasn't so much that he didn't know, it was that he belittled the caller and then came back on the air claiming that of course he knew who Al Albuquerque was but had never heard him called Al
Mike showed his football ignorance last week...  
kinard : 3/17/2017 8:19 pm : link
... a caller asked him about the Giants chances of signing DJ Fluker and Mike got all pissed and hung up on the guy while saying that he never heard of Fluker and that guys should stop calling him up with fake names trying to punk him.

The Giants signed Fluker two days later. It was definitely a bad look.

He's getting out at the right time...

Francessa gets shit from people  
Cenotaph : 3/17/2017 8:33 pm : link
a lot because he's tough on his callers and doesn't suffer mistakes or stupidity from them. he's pompous. Even when he's making mistakes he can be a conceited jerk, and sometimes digs himself in deeper because of it. So some people like to revel in it and have a laugh. So it's not so much that he has a few minor factual slips - he misses big and then yells abut how he's right. Apparently that one site basically is devoted to having a laugh at his expense, so I guess he provides a fairly consistent source of material.
He's just like Pres Cheeto

I absolutely loathe piss poor posters on this site such as this guy. Dude brings nothing to the table of value.
I prefer ESPN Radio over this goofball  
TheShade : 3/17/2017 10:34 pm : link
Him falling asleep was probably the biggest rating he ever got. I thought he was supposed to leave when his contract is up, so when does that happen?
I've thought about this recently  
mattnyg05 : 3/17/2017 11:03 pm : link
after the hilarious Fluker/Kalil/Warmack name gaffe. I'm not a fan of sports radio in general but living in the area it's hard to avoid Francesa sometimes (interviews with Giants, talk about big moves that happen, etc can be interesting, he's on during drive time). I heard his total dead air the other day while he was searching the web for results of an FSU-Maryland game that never happened, after which he said "I'm forgetting I'm forgetting" instead of "I'm sorry."

It is very obvious that he can never, ever admit to being wrong. When he's blatantly called out on something, he will deny it or make up excuses or flat out lie about it, but he'll never admit he made a mistake. Which might be part of the appeal-I sometimes find myself listening to him because he's such a tremendous asshole, and that's interesting in a way. You're astounded by how douchey he is to callers and when confronted by his mistakes.

Is it a stretch to say his rotten personality is part of the fascination? It's like watching a drama, you're not in it just for the sports talk but a good percentage of it is just because you can't stand the guy? You listen because you want to catch him being wrong, and the reason is because you're amazed at his reaction to it (and it's hysterical). His treatment of callers who forget things or display a lack of knowledge is incredible when you consider how he denies his same failures (the falling asleep one is just the greatest).

I think he knows this, and he's perfected a formula (almost like a Skip Bayless but less controversial). And the most important question of all-why do I even care? Why does anyone? We may never know.
You guys are missing it....  
grizz299 : 3/18/2017 6:15 am : link

His job is to entertain, to get ratings and to sell air time.
He's simply the best at doing that. His salary is estimated at 5 million per year and he's been no.1 in the ratings for thirty years. Conservative in his life style he's a muli-millionaire doing what he likes.
This thread really isn't about M.F., it's about the fans who have a relentless need to criticise, who know more about radio than Francesca and more about football than Jerry Reese.
He's horrible...
