Since his split with longtime partner Chris Russo, it seems WFAN's Mike Francesa has been crossing the line between reality and insanity much more frequently. Mike'd Up has always been known for his lack of patience with callers, but now comes a statement that is so crazy it has to be seen and heard to be believed:

Tweeting by athletes and media types should be against the law? Francesa sounds a lot like Tim McCarver, who called social networking the most disturbing thing in the world earlier this year. My guess is Mke was trying to make a joke along the lines of Timmy and his comedic delivery failed him. At least I hope that's the explanation for saying any media member or athlete who tweets should be arrested.  Francesa also says you'll never catch him Tweeting (shocked he actually used the correct verbage there). The strange thing is Francesa's only justification is that "no one needs to hear from any of them." Well, ok then. No word on whether or not Francesa thinks 5 hour weekday sports talk shows should be against the law as well.

As if the first clip wasn't good enough, Francesa then went on to ask if one had to "pay to tweet." Chris Berman is watching this somewhere thinking Mikey is out of touch with the present day reality of life:

ESPN 30 For 30 Expands While Francesa Takes on Twitter

ESPN announced that it will continue of its “30 for 30″ series in October. In case you aren’t aware of the original 30 for 30 (and if you are reading this I doubt that’s the case), it celebrated ESPN’s 30th anniversary in 2009 by chronicling 30 stories that transformed the sports landscape since the network was founded in 1979. In addition to the second round of 30 feature...

WFAN’s Mike Francesa anti-Twitter rant: epitome of ignorance (video)

After his angry old man “hey get off my media industry lawn” type rant against Twitter yesterday, WFAN’s Mike Francesa is deemed out of touch, behind the times by most people today.
