I like the way that as soon as one team is down by more than one score, Kornweisenheimer starts saying it is over and asking hypothetical 'what if they lose the rest of their games' questions. Then they start debating who should be talking to the press, what the owner said, whether fans should get their tickets back, and by then it is onto the never-ending discussion about it being past Tony's bedtime.

Put that idiot on Entertainment Tonight where he belongs...he'd rather talk about Dancing with the Stars anyway...

....What in the world is up with that "whoop" thing chris berman does? Has no one ever told him to just stop it...all they need to say is stop...just say "please stop it, it hurts my head". I just noticed this the other day and he did it over and over again. I noticed myself getting very angry and very fast. What is that?....really?....what is he trying to do?...what is he trying to say?....

I don't know who is more annoying in the football booth, Kornheiser or Dennis Miller. Neither one of them belong in it. I'm glad they all got offended.... screw them.

He's been doing that crap for years and yeah it's lame, hes lame and MNF is lame. I don't mind Tireco(spl?) too much I guess but pretty much everything else blows including most of the match ups. At least we should have a pretty good game this week. :-?

As I have said for years now, these people (ESPN/ABC) have forgotten that the "star" is the game itself, not Dennis Miller, Tony Kornheiser, Rush Limbaugh, or Jimmy Kimmel. Until they realize that people are tuning in to watch a professional football game, we will continue to have our intelligence insulted by the executives at these networks, and by the producers that think we really want to hear Jimmy Kimmel's lame and insulting crap, during an NFL game.

Jimmy Kimmel is funny but some of those lines crashed and burned. If anyone needs to be told never to return it's Tony Kornheiser. All he contributes is all this hypothetical crap and how great a player might be some day. And whenever they do a close up on him, I throw up in my mouth a little. He looks like he is decomposing. :-{

Football is the star, but I forget where I saw this, but FWIW, the actual amount of action in an NFL game is not that high. You could probably watch the time while the ball is actually in play in like 30 minutes (although, I remember it being more like 9). I don't care about miller or kimmel per se, and I know what people are going for when the schedule that.

Two things ultimately bug me ... pompousness on the order of theisman, and continuing to talk when the ball is in play.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

WOW, I am glad I don't watch MNF unless the Cowboys are playing. They are so annoying. :-P

mnf has become a big steaming pile of crap stacked up on a fresh bag of fertilizer. Their 3rd quarter guests annoy me to no ends. A couple weeks back, they had Charles Barkley on who is annoying in whole different ways, but to his credit, he kept trying to talk about football while MNF's "hosts" kept trying to change the subject, and Barkley kept leading their questions and comments back to football. That was sad that their basketball guest had to keep the subject to football....and oh yeah, there's a FOOTBALL GAME GOING ON. :-t

I guess I'm glad I had to work and missed this last game. I have to work this monday too so i will miss this week! :~( *







*sarcasic use of this particular smilie.

I agree that MNF is complete crap. How could the announcers be so vastly different from announcers of Sunday day games? Those games do fine in the ratings, so ABC should get a new set of guys who will do what they should: talk about the football game.
