    I can't stand Mad Dog, but Francesa is a little more tolerable. He was a studio analyst for CBS for a number of years, so at least he has a little more credibility. Plus his tone, at least when he's not arguing with Mad Dog, is easier on the ears than Mad Dog.

    Francesa is a condescending, know-it-all prick who isn't one-tenth as smart as he thinks he is.
    The other guy is just a moron.

    Russo is the very definition of a douchebag.

    I've got an idea for a new show: Mike Francesa...and Brandon Inge.

    Do you listen to "The Big Show" on WEEI? What do you think of that compared to Mike and the Mad Dog?

    I enjoyed the show when I had DirecTV.

    However, the bashing has begun and will continue. After all, that's what we do best. Carry on.

    i used to think doggie was harmless and somewhat entertaining. he's worn thin after a tremendously successful career.

    the fat effin' effer? it's all bad. what an arrogant, condascending prick.

    That's right, Sonner. So shut your mouth. :D

    I never minded Russo...he's batshit crazy, sure, but he always struck me as someone who would be a decent guy outside the studio. Francesa is a condescending, ass-kissing prick with no discernible talent outside of an ability to read the newspaper (and criticize the news-gatherers, of course).

    Ralph Branca delivered the greatest slam ever of Francesa after the lardass was yelling for Bobby V to get fired right before the Mets pulled off their great comeback to make the playoffs in '99. Of course, I can't seem to find it online, but it was something about how Bobby shouldn't listen to fatsos who once kept score at St. John's.

    You know what? I've made it 32 years of my life never having heard these people.

    I'm pretty sure all of you could make it the rest of your lives without hearing them. If you just would try instead of doing all this hate-spewing.

    I don't listen to them, IJAG. But I just loathe Francesa and think the airwaves would be a better place without him.
