I made the mistake of listening to Mike and Maddog for alittle bit today, good news atleast was russo wasn't there, bad news francessa was. I really hate when he talks about the Giants, I don't care when people are critical of this team when it is warranted because sometimes it is deserved but he has such a personal vendetta against the players on this team, and he tries to pass it off as him being objective. He says he doesn't like some of them cause they run their mouths off too much, so does he hate himself? He doesn't guys like Strahan, Tiki, Shockey, etc.... because they don't kiss his fanny 24/7, thats all there is to it. He only loves himself and the man he worships Parcells.

I stopped listening when Parcells went to the Jets and he said he was on loan to the Jets.Plus I'm a hockey fan and they blatently disrespect the game whenever they can.

true, not only that he hangs up on everyone who doesn't agree with him, he's a dictator.

I like Francessa, granted he has a negetative opinion about Strahan and Shockey. But so what, based on the way they have conducted themselves over the years I feel its okay.Let's all think back. Shockey came out of Miami a national champion and rated as a great pro prospect. The next Kellen Winslow, Tony Gonzalez or Mike Ditka. Heck, he was going to make us all forget about Mark Bavaro( nobody will make me forget about Bavaro!). So what does Shockey do in his first year, he comes out with a lot of bluster bragging about how good he is. Catches 74 balls for 894 yards and 2 Tds. Makes a lot of mistakes, dropped balls and dumb penalties.He really gets any more than 74 catches a year for the rest of his career or gets 894 or more yards in one year. However, he does manage to score 24 touchdowns over 5 years. Keep in mind he can talk the talk but he cannot


walk the talk. Just as an example, lets compare the Big TE from the U to other notable TE's of days gone by. Lets start with Kellen Winslow, how did he do in his first 69 games ( the number of regular season games Shockey has played) ? Winslow had 399 receptions for 5176 yards and 37 touchdowns. Shockey has 314 receptions for 3,609 yards and 24 TDs. So much for the next Kellen Winslow. What about Tony Gonzalez? Tony had 362 receptions for 4,272 yards and 36 TDs. Looks like old schock man has not exactly written his name into the history books with his career thus far.As far as being compared to Bavaro I will look towards his playoff numbers where he pales in comparison. Bavaro caught numerous key passes in several playoff victories for the G- Men. Shockey has yet to win a playoff game with the Giants he is 0 for 2.


As for Strahan, he has been in the league how many years? Fourteen? How many times have the Giants made the playoffs? Four, and how many playoff games did they win? Two. How times was he been on the field when the Giants needed a big defensive stop in the playoffs to prevent a major collapse? Try two times. Once against the Vikings and Randall Cunningham, in a game the Giants blew a 22 to 9 lead in the final 10 minutes. Then vs SF in the playoffs again with Giants way ahead 38-16 he was our best defensive player on the field and did nothing as we blew another Playoff lead. Yeah, Strahan may have put up a steady supply of sacks in his day, but where was he when we needed him most ?

man if youre taking Francessa Barfs side over our Giants, youre on your own. I can go on and make my points defending Strahan, Shock, or Tiki even, but thats not the point I was trying to make. I never said people shouldnt be critical of the team, I'm saying Francessa isn't doing it to be objective as he claims to be, its personal, and I don't like it how he tries to act like it isnt. He only likes people who kiss his behind. Didn't say being critical was wrong, said his intentions were. He's a ego maniac who is all about me, me, parcells, me , and me.

Yeah, your are correct. He does come off real transparent. "Nothing personal" but, its personal. I agree with that. When you make your assessment of someone, state the facts only. We do not want to hear what went on with you and that individual. However, if you are going to bring up personal issues you have with the person, state them clearly, and give the person a chance to respond. If not, drop it . Then simply state the facts, which I feel are obvious. Did we win a super bowl with these guys here ? The rest is all none sense. I will admit a big part of me would love to see Shockey and Barber and Eli stick it to them all and win the Super Bowl. That would be a story for the ages! And would shut a lot Francessa's up !

Most self-respecting listeners start out as fans of the arrogant Francessa and his side-kick, but then reach a point of disgust that causes a switch to 1050 ESPN radio, which is a breath of fresh air. This happened for me in 1999 and I have never looked back.


There is no reason to listen to FAN, no reason at all.

I agree 100%, its just such a shame that they get to have their disgusting views shown on YES. It makes the Yankee organization look cheap.

No doubt, lose them on Yes.They're disturbing on radio and twice as disturbing to look at.
