    Guy hasn't been relevant since Russo ran away from him.

    I thought he was opening a tout service?

    Just another Boomer refusing to retire.

    He is Michael Kay's personal fuck bitch right now.
     
  6. Why should he have to retire because he's a boomer? I'm not a fan of his at all but if he wants to keep working it's his prerogative. Boomers have no obligation to step aside or leave the work force

    I am completely ashamed - or incredibly proud - to say I've never heard a minute of Mr. Francesa on the radio box.

    If you’d told me 10 years ago that Russo would come out of this better than Francesca, I would’ve laughed at you. At least Russo knows who and what he is.

    I think Russo is quite good. Blathery at times but is a sports encyclopedia and a book/history nut. Had Posnanski on the other day talking about his new book on Houdini. Not going to hear that anywhere else on the sports dial.

    Anyone who'd pay him for picks may as well put a pile of their money in the fireplace and light it.

    Okay - let me put it the way Francesca would - is Mike Francesca damaging his legacy? (ala Willie Mays - Mets, Jordan - Wizards, Joe Namath - Rams, Unitas - Chargers etc.)
