Neil Best of Newsday is reporting that wildly popular New York sports talk radio show Mike and The Mad Dog may be finished.  The reports says that problems between Mike Francesa and Chris Russo may spell the end of the show.

Although neither is a Mets fan, Russo (Giants) and Francesa (Yankees) do plenty of Mets talk on WFAN, the Mets flagship radio station.

When reached for comment on the report Francesa had none and Russo said that he didn’t know anything about it:

“That is news to me,” he said. “I have not heard that… That is fascinating information.”

Personally, I doubt the validity of this. Russo and Francesa have openly talked about some rocky periods in their personal relationship in the past. After losing Don Imus last year, there’s no way that WFAN would let Mike and The Mad Dog get away without a fight.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
