I watch MNF to WATCH FOOTBALL, not to see some glammy team of announcers. It's like they think the announcers are the star of the show. They've totally lost sight of the focus of the show, which is why we've had this parade of booth-sitters who detract from the game.
100% Let's just watch football. I am so sick of MNF's preplanned dialogue that cuts into the action. They eschew replays all of the time on big stuff (penalties, big hits, etc.) so they could continue rambling and it annoys the piss out of me. Also - who cares about the sideline reports? They don't do replays during sideline interviews either and it drives me nuts. Stop prescripting and just talk about the game as it is played!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't find words to express my joy at the demise of Kornholio. He was a Dennis Miller without Miller's football knowledge..,or intelligence..,or sense of humor.
It saddens me that hiring Chuckie, who strikes me as the kind of guy who loves him some him, is a sign that espn will continue to show football games during their Monday Night entertainment extravaganza. Until these guys realize we watch for the game, not the announcers, the ratings will never be back, back, back, back.
Anyhoo, goodbye Tony. Maybe your fear of flying will cure my fear of listening.
