Kornheiser Out at Monday Night Football


korny

The sad news of the day comes from the world of broadcasting where my favorite sports personality, Tony Kornheiser is out at Monday Night Football. He will be replaced by Jon Gruden in a move that will likely upgrade the telecast but will hurt Mr. Tony. The one positive about this move is that it could lead the way for Kornheiser to return to radio, his true home and the thing that he is BY FAR the best at. So if that happens, it will all be a wash. At least we still have PTI, although we have to listen to Wilbon as well.

    Even Kornheiser has said he’s not that good at it and that he didn’t expect the gig to last long.

    Wasn’t a big fan of TK on MNF. Love him on PIT however. During the actual game, I don’t want commentators who always feel they have to interject a funny joke after every play. Save that for PTI the day after the game.

    Mr. Tony STINKS!

    The guy was absolutely terrible on MNF! His intentions were good i think, but he just needs to stick to PTI and leave the football analysis to the guys that actually know a thing or two.

    The other day I read on Wikipedia that they wouldn’t re-air his radio show until MNF was out of the picture. I’d much rather have my daily morning dose of his awesome radio show than watch him fail at mnf.
    this is a complete win.

    Anyone think that the Magic have a chance at upsetting the Cavs in the Eastern Conference Finals?

    8) No, I just don;t see it happening. Cavs could even sweep that series, maybe lose one game.

    I think Denver beats the Lakers though, even though a lot of people are saying that now, so it is not a groundbreaking assessment.

    I heard on ESPN that Tony K was leaving “to cut down on travelling.”

    8 ) oops

    8. nope

    Used to love PTI until Wilbon started the whole i hate UK. Maybe Kornheiser leaves Pti to and let Wilbon and Whitlock have a half hour of bitching abou how racist UK and there fans are.

    Anybody see Adam Sandler wearing a Kentucky T-Shirt in his upcoming movie? See it here http://www.funnypeoplemovie.com/.
    Great to see UK hitting the big screen.

    Damn I am glad he is gone, finally get someone who talks football.

    ESPN says Kornheiser stepped down because of his fear of planes. Said he looked at the upcoming schedule for MNF and wanted to “quietly extricate myself”. And no I am not kidding.

    Is Kornheiser wearing a silk scarf & a beret in that picture? What a flamer!

  17. the ghost of Bill Hicks

    16- Not a beret….but by god he’s dedicated to that comb over.

    tony should use this pic for the part in PTI where they have masks…”back to the PTI future”…

    A lot of Loserville fans have Gruden at the top of their list to replace Kragthorpe. I hope that he really enjoys the MNF gig.

  20. UK IS MY LIFE

    Shit i want to see that movie

    19. That would be a huge upgrade in coaching for UofL if they landed Gruden. The problem would of course be that Gruden would likely just use UofL as a stepping stone to a bigger and better job. In other words, the status quo would be restored.

  22. BLUEBALLS

    BRING DENNIS MILLER BACK….HE WAS GREAT!!

    NOT!!!

    WHO IS RUNNING MNF ANYWAY?? MATT MILLEN??

  23. catfishblue

    Hey Matt,
    You should send ESPN your resume and apply for the vacated spot on Monday Night Foosball… Mama says you get more chicks with that gig!

  24. _DP_

    Wasn’t there talk of Gruden taking over at U of Tennessee but he turned it down b/c he wanted to stay in the NFL?

  25. btcoop71

    How is this news sad? He sucked.

  26. bige

  27. repsol-69

    THANK GOD, THE HOMELESS GUY IS GONE FROM FOOTBALL!!!!!!!!!! I ALMOST STOPPED WATCHING MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL BECAUSE OF HIM. THE WORLD IS RETURNING TO NORMAL. DID I SAY THANK GOD!!!!!

  28. Red Rooster

    This stinks!

  29. jreeves5319

    Kornheiser sucked on MNF…PERIOD.

    He’s a yankee fan.

    …and he’s a bleeding heart liberal to boot.

    His cohost hates UK…(he’s guilty by default…).

    What more do you need in order to hate this man?

    It’s for the best
