We told you in October that Mike Francesa had refused to make his 2016 NFL picks for Week 4 following an 0-4 week 3. Earlier that day we reported that Mike would like to stay on until 2/2/18...but, alas, WFAN won't let him.
A 2nd WFAN source confirmed that Francesa refused to make his picks because of that argument with management but that CBS/WFAN had been 'hopeful he'd provide at least 3 of them to the station' to enter into the public record.
He did not.
Now word that CBS does not want Mike Francesa Football Sunday 2017 at all. (But to hear Francesa announce it Saturday? He didn't want to 'leave people in the middle of the season.' December 17th 2017 is apparently the middle of the season next year...)
And to make matters all the uglier...Francesa went winless with his NFL picks for week 16. His worst week of the year by far and a fitting end to his ugly, ugly Sunday relationship with WFAN.
And he was just sick about it.
