I used to listen to the guy….
But I stopped…..
On his own in the end….(The ‘Mad’ Dog has his own gig that is doing fine)
A KING SIZED ego…..
On the air too long….
The inability to admit when he was wrong?
The guy left the WFAN radio station thinking he would be able to trade up….
THAT has NOT happened….
Now the NY Daily News is fronting a possible return of the guy?
Throughout his never-ending “retirement” tour Francesa, bellowed on about how he just needed a change, while claiming he wasn’t getting out of the business. He said he would announce his new gig in April, which has seven days left. He still hasn’t made that announcement. Probably because he has not landed a gig and is so frustrated over deciding to leave WFAN he is too busy kicking himself in the butt.
Here’s the bottom line with Francesa: He overestimated his value in the marketplace and underestimated how much he would miss the business. His ego is so large that he’s not satisfied just looking in the mirror and making the same points over and over again. He still needs the adulation of the unwashed masses to feed his ego.
Francesa’s s inability to land a gig has led to speculation that he approached WFAN suits and talked about coming back. This would not be surprising. As a matter of fact, since he made his “retirement” announcement in 2016, we predicted Francesa would never leave WFAN. Francesa scoffed at this notion.
So, now that he can’t find an alternative gig anywhere else, he decides to scurry back “home” like a hungry rat? What a guy…..
