Default Leaving YES?

From Wikipedia:

"WFAN's contract with YES to simulcast Mike and the Mad Dog ends at the end of 2006. With the negative things that Chris Russo said about the Yankee organization in the summer of 2006, (including a heated on-air discussion with Yankees general manager Brian Cashman), it is possible that YES and WFAN will not continue the relationship. The show could then move to SportsNet New York or MSG Network. It should also be noted that there have been occasions where YES has ended a simulcast in progress due to comments that may have been too critical of YES or the Yankees. The two sometimes joke about the incidents when they get started talking about YES producers on the show or poke fun at George Steinbrenner's feud with former Yankee bench coach Don Zimmer. Still, Francesa and Russo say that YES does not censor them on-air."

YES really has not pulled them off the air since the beginning I believe. I could see them moving to SNY but who knows.

That wikipedia entry sounds like it was lifted from a column that I think Raissman wrote a few months ago. Since then I think it looks like that M&MD and Yes seem closer to a deal.

YES milks 6 and a half hours of the day out of them, there is only so much CenterStage they can show!!

MSG and SNY are both NYC sports stations and they've managed to fill a full schedule. It's not like it isn't feasible for them to leave YES.

I am sure its feasible, but YES is able to produce 1 program that fills all those hours during the day rather then having to develop several shows to fill the airs, or repplay the same Yankeeography over and over. BTW I havent seen MSG during the day in a long time, but when I did their programing was flat out unwatchable.

I know the schedules for MSG and SNY aren't great; that wasn't my point. My point was it's not like it would be impossible for them to fill the afternoon hours if Mike and Chris made the move (since 2 other sports stations dedicated solely to NYC have done so). And according to the article if they did so, it would be by their choosing, not YES's, so it wouldn't be like YES would send them walking in order to put better programming on.

Game 7 of the 04 ALCS would be a nice classic to watch on Yes.
