Mike Francesa threatens Doug Gottlieb’s producer after producer tries to get Calipari for an interview

Well, the Mike Francesa/John Calipari story escalated quickly, didn’t it? If you missed it this morning, Cal appeared on Francesa’s show yesterday and afterwards, called in to defend himself when Francesa said he wasn’t a good X’s and O’s coach. Francesa hung up on him and the audio of the incident has since gone viral.

Turns out there’s another part to the story. This morning, Doug Gottlieb told WFAN’s “Boomer & Carlton” that Francesa threatened his producer when the producer tried to get Calipari on Gottlieb’s show yesterday. Francesa and Gottlieb are both members of the CBS Sports Radio family and tape their shows in the same building, but Francesa refused to share Calipari, telling Gottlieb’s producer “Don’t ever, ever ask for one of my guests that I send my driver to go pick up.”

Man, it’s been a bad day for Francesa, hasn’t it? Simmer down boys, plenty of Calipari to go around.

    Wilbob will say on PTI this is definitely a sign Calipari’s going to the NBA.

    This happens at most TV and radio stations, with the notable acception of ESPN during their “Car Wash”. Hosts and producers are VERY teritorial with their guests and try as much as they can to block them from all other media outlets, including those within their own family. You also see it in Late Night TV shows.

    Here’s the link for your next post, Mrs. TT. You’re welcome. I look forward to your post which makes no mention of this comment as if you found it on your own.

      Didn’t you know TT? Loco Pollo is the sole gatekeeper of the ESPN links. No can find these links anywhere else. They don’t keep them anywhere on the internet unless Loco Pollo puts them there.

      TT might have found it from you or she might have found it an hour before you did. If she posted all the stuff as soon as she found it the site would kinda suck. The writers, thankfully, post every hour or so. This way we can come back a few times a day and have fresh content.

      Thanks, Loco! Where would KSR be without you helping them along the way? I would hate to think you’re the type of guy who wouldn’t survive without the constant acknowledgement and pats on the back you think you deserve.

      I would love it if she posts the link and credits “some dick in the comments section for sending me the link to an article that I located hours before.”

    John Mellencamp will occasionally call into “Bob & Tom” and pretend his is Roscoe Mellencamp, John’s cousin. Cal should call in to Gottleib’s show as Fred Calipari- no one would be the wiser,

    I wish I could have given you a thumbs up for that post. It was funny because it’s so true

    Mike Francesa has a feud going with everyone in the industry.

    talking heads are a dime a dozen . francesa needs new hair. cbs sports makes money by creating villains against their own. Coach Cal was destroying mike’s happy ass before he bailed out & hung up. my message to M.F. is dont ever never hang up on our Basketball coach. never ever ever refer to x’s & o’s as you have not a clue what you are talking about. “you” (not sir) are a complete dumb jerk that deserves to be attacked by a kitten on your rat infested subway.
