NYC Radio: Report..WFAN's Mike Francesa Goes 'Insane'

An enraged Mike Francesa called in to “Boomer & Gio,” morning show on WGAN 660 AM / 101.9 FM, after Boomer Esiason described Francesa as “idiotic” in reference to Francesa criticizing the Giants in the wake of the shooting of their sixth-round pick, Corey Ballentine. Ballentine’s best friend and teammate, Dwane Simmons, was killed in the incident.

According to The NY Post, when Francesa made his initial comments, there was no known reason for why Simmons and Ballentine were the victims. Francesa still used it as part of a diatribe against Giants GM Dave Gettleman and the franchise, describing them at the end of it as a “laughingstock.”

Reports so far indicate the two were innocent victims.

Francesa’s rage continues a sad spiral for him after he returned from a faux retirement a year ago. It is becoming increasingly hard to imagine that the 65-year-old Francesa — who became a radio icon with his old partner, Chris Russo — doesn’t leave the station at some point on awkward terms.

On Tuesday, Boomer & Gio were talking about how Francesa has suddenly criticized the Giants after being supportive of them for years. The duo hypothesized that Francesa was not being fed information anymore, which is why he has hammered Gettleman. Eli Manning has also canceled his weekly paid spot with Francesa for this season.
