Al Michaels Signs With ESPN

Postby drsteuss » Tue Jul 26, 2005 1:38 pm

He'll be doing MNF in 2006 and beyond.

For my money, this signals the end of Theismann and Maguire. I'm sure Michaels made it clear to ESPN that he didn't want to share the booth those two pieces of Samsonite. And to that, I say, Hooray. Hooray, indeed.

Theisman and Collingsworth have to be the worst pair in the history of Commentary.

I think you mean Theismann and Maguire, Collinsworth is over on FOX with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.

I could not stand Maguire, guy was far too annoying to enjoy the broadcast. Glad hes gone, Im not a huge Al Micheal's fan but if it means getting rid of Maguire then I am happy. :-D

Theismann was announced as Micheal's color man..Michele Tafoya and Suzy Kolber are the sideline reporters.


Well...at least they got the Suzy part right.

Buck and Michaels would be great with a color guy.

There's something really funny about that statement, but I'm not gonna say it.

An I do like theisman's call me a homer, but it's very unbiased and straight forward.

Seems like a good team to me. But it doesnt really matter to me whose broadcasting as long as I get to see football games.

I was not referring to them as a tandem. I meant the pair was the worst the NFL could offer. And we are stuck with them, week in, week out. One on ESPN, one on Fox.

Way to go espn for finding some new fresh talent to plug into your booth. You clowns are truely followers instead of leaders in sports. Couldn't you talk Berman into doing sideline crap so we could hear his new stuff: "and now back, back, back, back, back to you, Al".

I wonder how long before Al Michaels tries to have Theisman replaced? Seems to me that there isn't enough air in the booth for both egos, and Al doesn't like to share.
