Source WFAN Suits Prepared to Match Francesa's Asking Price, Francesa Will Return in 2018.

Why do you think all of the big names would not sign on to be Mike's replacement? Because their agents already heard the leaks, WFAN and Mie Francesa were faced off in an Old West style dual, who would draw first?

Both actors would not waver and now WFAN is left holding a ratings disaster and the suits are panicking, they will match Francesa's price and even go higher, anything to bring him back in 2018 and Francesa will accept because he wants one final mongo-mega deal.

Just as MikeFrancesa.com predicted, Mike is returning as per Raissman:

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/mo...cle-1.3951336?

To be fair the original prediction was that Mike was not going to leave but again, this was a Wild West showdown over money and there was a reason no big name would touch the replacement job because they realized it was all part of Chernoff's negotiating ploy.

Francesa was always all about one or possibly two more mega deals but he played it smart, by going into pseudo retirement WFAN had to match and go over Francesa's original price.

Update: While I agree with Raissman and Mushnick that Francesa is indeed a lying slug and never wanted to retire, the notion that he took a pay cut has not been put in proper context. Francesa is making less money but solely because he is working 3 hours per day instead of 5 plus hours, compare the hourly rates and you will see that WFAN matched or exceeded his original price.
