Do i have to watch those annoying announcers on MNF

Tirico is awful. You have to have a play-by-play guy who is listenable, can cover up a lot of sins of the other booth-mates. Tirico can't carry himself. He, like espn's silly scoring graphics, need to go.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

i didnt see any of the game, but i like Kornheiser on PTI, but i have reservations about him calling an NFL game

Theisman and Tirico are brutal, but at least Paul McGuire is out of the picture on ESPN

youre pretty much doing exactly what youre telling everyone else not to do. !+)


how do you figure miner? :-?

I just get tired of seeing these posts every week during the season.


"if you dont like them mute them." that's what you said. we'll if you dont like these threads dont read or post in them. not trying to be annoying, just thought it was a bit funny.


Great point, Miner. It's pretty clear from the subject line what this post is about, so consider the mouse your virtual "mute" button and move on to the next thread if ya don't like it. :-)

P.S. I think this thread is esp. relevant this year, with a new network and new announcers taking over MNF. IMO, once he gets comfortable, TK's gonna be an entertaining and knowledgeable addition to the team.

I still like Joe though, I think he is doing very well. He actually does have plenty of worthwhile things to say.


Don't remember it exactly, but one of Joe's worthwhile things to say was:

..."We shouldn't call these guys geniuses. Albert Newton, now that guy was a genius ..."

referring to some of the coaches.

Joe was horrible. Tirico was horrible. The scoring graphic was horrible. The game was horrible. I'm leaving hope for tony.

This is probably the worst crew i've ever heard. The only way it could get any worse is if they add in chris berman.

Tony K. is pretty good... great addition. He offsets the sometimes annoying Theisman quite well.
Questions or Comments? Feel free to PM me.

I know that I've been given more than beyond measure.

Tony has no bravado or coinfidence all his statements are questions, he does however at least give Theisman a hard time. I think Tony K. is a great personality, but I don't think he'll be a good broadcaster till he gets some coindfidence in his ability to call games.

Yeah I agree. But I'll give him at least a few weeks into the regular season before I draw a conclusion on whether he can do that.


And last night's game did remind me that I really do like Theismann alot...
