It seems so long ago, but this wasn’t the first time Mike Francesa criticized Matt Cerrone.
Mike says “who cares what Matt Cerrone thinks“? Matt addresses the comment, then removes the post. Then Mike backtracks (a little). The bloggers unite, calling out Mike and every other old-school media dinosaur who couldn’t power on a computer if their life depended on it — much less “get” this “blog thing”.
In the end, it’s welcome drama to an otherwise slow Memorial Day weekend in the blogosphere.
I still say let’s stage a duel between Matt and Mike to settle this like men, and create an enormous public relations opportunity / fund raiser. I have the ideal location.
Or maybe there’s another way … cast your vote below:
