New Monday Night Football Team?

Have you guys heard the rumors that ABC will let Al Michaels out of his contract so he can join John Madden on Sunday Night Football on NBC, then the new MNF team on ESPN will be Mike Tirico doing play-by-play with Joe Theismann and Tony Kornheiser doing color.

If this is the case, what do you think of this line-up for ESPN?

I'd love to see Kornheiser do some announcing! Personally, I really don't like Theisman as an announcer that much.

Doesn't sound like a bad idea. I wonder what TK thinks about this. He's always saying that John Riggins should get a shot at the booth, but he has never mentioned himself as someone to do color commentary.

I will say this, TK is a funny ass dude.

Re: New Monday Night Football Team?

I hate to love TK. But i do. I do so much.

And i dislike Joe. I think he's a dumb, self-hyped, idiot. I would rather sonny and sam. And i don't like them very much either. But atleast they are not self important.

Interesting... I think Tony K. in the booth would be a good move. I used to hate the guy but he's one of those people that grows on you with time, I think he's hilarious now.

Yeah I love Tony K. I hope this one comes true. He could be funnier than Dennis Miller, and yet still have some serious football insight to offer.

Re: New Monday Night Football Team?

Anyone who listens to TK's show knows he likes to go to bed early (like around 8) so i'm not sure he is up for MNF

I'm with you matty, the only reason i listened to TK in the morning was to get the sportcenter update every 20 min. then he started making me laugh, now im hooked.

Re: New Monday Night Football Team?

Kornheiser was one of the finalists when ABC hired Dennis Miller...and TK is still bitter about that. TK would be fine for the first few games, but then would get old really quick. And I like the guy...

I can't stand Joe Theismann, and Tirico does a decent job doing play by play, but would much rather see Al Michaels stay.

Re: New Monday Night Football Team?

I KNOW tony has talked about this in a article or his show or on the radio(most likely) but i forget what he said. I THINK THINK THINK he was talking like it wasn't gonna happen and i think he didn't want to. BUt this was like 3-4 weeks ago when i heard it.

I think he had said he prefers college football so ESPN is assigning him college games.

You know I use to hate Theismann but have grown to like him. I think he does a good job of explaining the game and why plays did or did not work.
