I won't put up with it at all. I listen to the radio feed with Marv Albert and Boomer Esiason. The bad thing is Mike Tirico is a good announcer and Ron Jaworski does a good job on commentary. But in this case, twos company. threes a crowd. I don't dislike Tony personally, his show with Mike Wilbon is good. I have just grown tired of all this celebrity schtick. That's why I listen to the radio.

I agree. There is so much downtime in Football that it allows them to talk about the dumbest **** ever. Just stick to the game and thats that.

Don't know exactly put this, but for me MNF (outside the game itself) was always in the production of the program. NBC and ABC seemed to do it very well, but something about ESPN just doesn't seem to work. Can't put my finger on it. Don't get me wrong, I still watch every Monday and love ESPN for everything else they do, but MNF on ESPN just seems to lack somehow. Hope I'm making sence.
Tirico is good, no problems with him, Jaws is ok I guess, but I can do without Kornheiser. He just adds nothing.

Cornholer needs to lose the comb over. He is very tough on the ears and the eyes!

After Chick Hearn and Vin Scully of course.

Kornheiser is really only good on PTI. Dont care for him on anything else especially on my football games.

The Dandy Don Merideth, Howard Cosell and Frank Gifford were the Golden Years of Monday Night Football broadcasting. Madden and Michaels are good, but they arent close to these guys.

Kornheiser wanders into too many other subjects. He should stick to the game at hand. he makes himself too much the issue. Get someone like Troy Aikmen to replace him.

I am beginning a campagin to have Kornheiser canned. If everyone who hates him on MNF will write to the sponsers of MNF and threaten to boycot them until ESPN cans him hopefully they will listen to the fans.

Kornhole is chocking on the fabric that makes up modern commentary, obviously he knows nothing about football or any sport for that matter, he is what you call a "stat-atician" someone who trys to read the facts, remember what he can & then try to squeeze it in along the way because he is on there to caudle all the poor souls who hang their hats on drivel like PTI and Wilbon which are argumentive to cause controversy, in turn to get people to watch or listen who otherwise would be watching the CFL or CSI or some crap like that!
