MNF upset with Kimmel; no longer welcome in Kornheiser's hou

Postby 1crzydmnd » Thu Oct 18, 2007 3:21 pm

Looks like Kimmel will no longer be a guest on the Tony Kornholio show (aka MNF).

saw this yesterday. what is the deal with mnf? total piece of crap. why do they have to bring in these hacks during the game? they don't talk about what is going on in the game, force us to miss key points, and just all around suck.

Boo hoo. Theisman is a wanker. Don't invite someone who has "edgy" humor if you can't deal with it?

I do hate the prolonged attention these booth guests get.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

You know as I was watching, Kimmel kept 1upping the vulgar annoying random crap with every sentence. He made at least 3 or 4 crude sexual remarks, about Brady impreganating two super models, other random sexual stuff when they asked him about something football related... Out of place and awkward for a football broadcast that's for sure.

Quick search for anyone who might have missed it Kimmel's Joe-T comment, notice everyone just basically ignores him after he says it, you can sense they are all like "*** did he just say?!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tG7O7GbSR6s

I'd be upset with him too if I was ESPN. Letterman and Leno have always been loads better in my opinion Kimmel usually goes a step beyond humor to where you go "What the heck" and want to punch the guy instead of laugh, at least this has always been my take on him.

Personally I could do away totally with these guests. Or at least get former football players in there instead of former basketball players, comedians, or other random people that have nothing to do with football.

Better, yet why not fire Kornheiser, Jaws, and the whole MNF crew? They are awful. Even when there isn't a guest, they generally don't focus on the game. They start talking about random public crap. The commentary is the main reason I can't stand MNF. :-t :-t

I usually do, but it just annoys me that I actually have to mute my TV while watching the game. I did the same thing all last year when ESPN hosted Sunday Night Football. I would rather listen to Chris Berman make "WHOOP" noises for 3 straight hours then listen to the crap they talk about on MNF. Thank god I don't have to watch ESPN to get good highlights. NFL Network beats the living hell out of ESPN's football "expert analysis" any day of the week.

I thought Kimmel was pretty funny but I normally enjoy his humor.

While Ron Jaworski does annoy me some with his non-football banter, I do like his football analysis. Maybe I'm just looking for something to like, because I can't stand Kornheiser at all.

Yea you really cant hide it, MNF is crap, the games are crap and usually NEVER amount to the sunday night games, and It gets annoying when they get so far offtrack from the actual game and get to random nonsense...If it werent for fantasy football interest I wouldnt be nearly as interested in those games
