It is tongue-in-cheek. Jeeze.
Mike interviews many GMs on his show (just not Mike Tannenbaum) and he tells them exactly what they should be doing. Mike Francesa is the de facto NY Sports general manager...in his mind.
Anyway, back to Mushnick & Francesa. Phil told Bob Mantz, Jr. last June: "'Dude, Francesa and I used to be tight. He'd even admit - or at least he used to - that my columns were what landed him his own show on FAN. No fooling. You can look it up! Then he began - or tried - to use me.' And that's where they split."
And that led to Phil taking that huge swing Francesa, "Don't Fuck with my integrity."

On a side note, Mushnick also wrote: "CBS' Jim Nantz, among the most gentlemanly and cautious sportscasters, had the audacity Sunday to speak a truth: Shonn Greene's late-game TD "celebration" was an "absurdity" that ran counterproductive to the team's goals. For this, Nantz was identified and bashed as anti-fun and anti-Jets. Nantz is no more anti-anything than the official who correctly flagged Greene for "excessive celebration," which wasn't a natural celebration, at all, but a skit, an act of predetermined showboating and taunting."
Nope, Jim is not anti-Jets. He's simply anti-old wives.
