Unofficial "Bash MNF crew" thread

Are you kidding me? I think Kornheiser and Theismann are developing serious chemistry - the acid / base kind. Seems like Kornheiser makes a fool out of Theismann at least once each week, sometimes more. Every week I look forward to hearing Kornheiser just totally embarass Joey Sunshine.

I mean, if they're gonna NOT show the game, I may as well listen to the radio. No reason to cram a talk show into a football game.[/quote]

I just listen to the radio and turn the volume down on the TV. Its less painful that way :-D

;-D That thing has been driving me crazy since the preseason. You can tell that was some idiot's idea who doesn't even watch football.

The whole celebrity interview thing makes every MNF game feel like the ProBowl. It doesn't even feel like anyone cares about what is happening in the game. Joe's too busy kissing a$$, Tony is worried about his fantasy team (like I give a &#$%), and Tirico is introducing someone in the booth at the beginning of every drive.

Has anyone noticed that Theismann has changed his mind about 62 times about the Bledsoe/Romo decision? First he was defending Bledsoe, then defending Parcells, then defending Romo, and now I see an article on ESPN.com that he back to saying it was the wrong decision. The whole crew is a waste of space.

I don't either, but the fact that fantasy football is mentioned in the mainstream media is groundbreaking. Read this article: Fantasy Football Goes Monday Night

I don't get the scoreboard logo in such a prominant position on the screen either, and this is from a company known for it's excellent camera/visual innovation and acumen. Why they would think that it wouldn't distract from the overall viewing pleasure is beyond me.

The celebrity thing and relentless banter about desperate housewife actors on screen love life is what happens when shameless self-promotion goes bad. espn is amongst the worst at it, evidenced by Tony Kornholio's presence in the booth. He proves each week to not only be unqualified, but also to be a fan of the event more than the game. His weekly let's go home the game is over bit is, I feel, revealing his own interest in tuning out and going to bed. The man just isn't much of a football fan. plain and simple.

I like Theisman, or have in the past, but his wishy-washy waivering makes him look like dumber than he is. He is an arrogant SOB who has nobody in the booth that he respects, with good reason since Tirico or Kornholio have no football background or knowledge. So Joe's ego goes uncheck and he is found babbling too often. He needs someone to, in effect, shut him up and keep him honest. Terrible chemistry in the booth right now. One egomaniac, unopinionated bland play-by-play man, and a 'name' with nothing to contribute is a bad mix.

I wonder how long before the bloated egos at espn realize their mistake and make the changes needed. Heck if they remove Kornholio and insert Jaws I think a balance would be restored and they would be much more informative and entertaining.

I actually like the MNF crew. Mike's play by play is exciting to listen to and he does a good job of bringing up relevant topics to discuss. Tony's wit and humor has me rolling around every week. Joe's analysis is always thoughtful and dead on. The guests are always fun to hear from and big names. All around, I think ESPN put together a great team and a great program every week. ;-D
