WFAN's Mike Francesa rips 'Boomer and Gio' morning show, says it 'stinks'


Mike Francesa ripped into the sports talk radio station's morning show Wednesday, saying the "Boomer and Gio" show "stinks" and declaring co-host Gregg Giannotti "short on ability."


The salvos come after Giannotti and co-host Boomer Esiason have long poked fun at Francesa and criticized him at times on their show.


Francesa also suggested an already-known discussion between Giannotti and midday co-host Chris Carlin - one that both men acknowledged on air was somewhat contentious at the start after Carlin objected to a line in Giannotti's comedic song about WFAN's ongoing standoff with Knicks and Rangers owner James Dolan - had in fact been a physical altercation.


Francesa said the incident involved "those two morons rolling around in the street out in front of the station."


Carlin, who is the Rutgers football play-by-play man, said there was no fight after the team broke practice in Piscataway.


Francesa got on the subject of fisticuffs due to a hypothetical discussion on the morning show about Carlin's co-host, former Jets star Bart Scott, being in a fight with former professional wrestler Tazz, who hosts a national CBS morning sports show.
