Mike Francesa rekindles old feud with Phil Mushnick

Old Feud!

The veteran New York sports talk radio host Mike Francesa secured a podcast contract with BetRivers. However, he has been 0-for-3 so far for his golf majors’ picks this year.

Earlier this year, he advised golf bettors to put their wagers on Brooks Koepka to win the Masters, Scottie Scheffler for the PGA Championship, and Cameron Smith for the US Open. Alas, neither golfer even made the cut in the respective tournament.

New York Post sports columnist Phil Mushnick saw the chance and went all-in on Francesca’s misfires in one of his latest articles.

“Oh-for-three on winners — no big deal — but all missed cuts? Nah! Can’t happen. But it did. Who is this soothsayer of colossal doom?

“That’s the best part: The guy sells himself as an expert professional tout, someone whose ‘picks have value,’ though evidence exists only to the extreme contrary. But his legacy as a self-deluded, boastful blowhard is now solidified — in faux stone,” he wrote.

“Ladies and gentlemen, and whatever you choose to call yourselves of all ages, welcome back the self-anointed know-it-all who never was and never left, Mike Francesa!”

The two are not known for a long-term friendship with Mushnick once claiming to have tapes of Francesa and Chris “Mad Dog” Russo allegedly demanding loyalty oaths from Jews after 9/11. Mushnick also accused Francesca to be caught in a heated discussion with Mark Chernoff, who was his boss, due to losing his ratings to ESPN New York’s Michael Kay. Francesca denies the latter accusation.

This time around, Francesa also refused to stand down and reacted to Mushnick’s guff lying down, reigniting their old feud on Twitter.

“Sad, pathetic Mushnick’s lies and distortions continue to make him look like the jealous old man that he is,” he tweeted. “Ask him to add up how much the horses I own have won the past two years. What a complete, obsessed fool.”
