    MNF-Kornheiser Killer

    I don't get to watch Monday Night Football often, but Tony Kornheiser is horrible! He goes off on these long monologues/soliloquies, and the other guys just sit there and wait for him to finish. Geez, he just rambles on, to no significant point whatsoever!

    It's worse than listening to Dennis Miller! Fingernails on a blackboard--why can't ESPN figure this out?!! It really makes me not want to watch the broadcasts he's on!

    I totally agree. Mike Tirico is one of the best in the business and Jaws is pretty good, but Kornheiser just detracts from them. He doesn't really seem to know football very well. Anyone see last week when he said the game was over and guaranteed Cardinals victory when there was plenty of time left and Arizona leading by less than a TD? I never watched PTI all that much before either but him being on MNF has made me not like him on PTI too.

    I can't believe they canned Theisman for him.

    Re: MNF-Kornheiser Killer

    He tries too hard and it isn't natural at all. When something is forced, it just isn't good. It's not all his fault, as ESPN is looking to have a "funny guy" on the MNF crew.

    I actually like Tirico and Jaws. It seems like they actually enjoy the game.

    It's kind of frustrating when THE sports network of all sports networks wants less Xs and Os and more fluff during it's broadcasts....

    Re: MNF-Kornheiser Killer

    I like Kornheiser. He has a certain elegance about him. He sort of reminds me a bit of JK Rowling's work. Except he's way, way better.

    Let's face it. The NFL is horrible. It can't stand on it's own as just being football, and pretty much requires a whole bunch of hype/entertainment surrounding it to make it even watchable.

    Totally true. I agree, it seems completely forced and unnatural. He goes on and on about nothing, while trying to sound intelligent.

    How bout nobody? For one, nobody would be better sounding that Kornheiser. And two, Why does there always have to be three people in the booth?

    Re: MNF-Kornheiser Killer

    I just listen to music in the backround during MNF. Seems to work fine for me. :)

    Tony is pretty bad from the times I've heard him. His comments seem out of place most of the time and just leave you thinking "uhhhh, ok."

    I didn't mind Theisman. He was cocky and acted like he could still play but he didn't suck and had some football cred.
