Well, it’s halftime of the first monday night game of the season and I’m already sick of the ESPN crew. In particular, fucking Kornheiser has come out of the gate strong in making a complete tool of himself.
You would think that the one good thing about watching a post-Favre Packers game would be that you wouldn’t have to list to the incessant Favre knob polishing. You would think you wouldn’t have to hear Favre’s name at all any more. You would THINK that, but noooooo, we have to hear Kornholio make constant idiotic comparisons of Aaron Rodgers to Brett Favre all game long. Rodgers gets pressured and throws a wild, girlie lob up for grabs in the endzone that should be picked off but gets dug off the turf for a TD by a Packers receiver, Kornholio says it’s “just like favre,” No, asshole, it is NOT just like Favre. Every time Rodgers completes a pass, Kornholio says it’s"just like Favre." No, it is NOT just like Favre you clueless, football-ignorant tool. How the FUCK did you a ever get a job in an NFL booth? Why the FUCK haven’t you been fired yet. You are SO insufferable, you make me long for Joe Theismann.
Shut up, shut up shut up, shut up, just SHUT. THE . FUCK. UP!!!
It’s going to be a long season.
Amen, I’m working so can’t watch the game but this stuff drives me nuts. Dennis Miller, Tony Kornheiser…why are the people who run MNF so convinced we need half-baked comedians in the booth? I can flip to any other channel and watch comedy, I turn on MNF to watch FOOTBALL! But this is the same group that thinks we need 5-6 half-time ‘analysts’ on every channel laughing their fool asses off at every lame joke and concocting fake arguments so it looks like their actually ‘analysing’. Kornheiser is one of the worst; I do like PTI, but get him outta the booth.
I should have mentioned I often listen to Blue Jays games on the radio while watching the game on TV because the radio commentators are more informative IMO. I don’t know if MNF just broadcasts the TV commentary on to the radio or not but you may find some better coverage there.
Even the other commentators were mocking him for it.
But I have to say, that touchdown pass looked like Favre for a while. Maybe that’s because it was part of beating the Vikings at Lambeau. I mean, it’s not like beating the Bears, but there is a certain satisfaction in it.
Who knows, next season if the Vikings sign a few more players, and the Packers lose a few more, maybe the Vikes can compete at Lambeau.
Whenever I think about giving your opinion on football ANY credence whatsoever, you pull an dumbass comment like this out of your ass. The Packers were called for 12 penalties for over 100 yards, and you insist they got “assistance” from the refs. There is no reality strong enough to put a chink in that Viking’s armor of yours.
Normally I listen to the radio broadcasts of the Brewers and Packers while watching the games, and they are more entertaining IMHO. I think it’s because the TV guys know there’s a camera showing the action, whereas the radio guys have to describe it in a way that helps you visualize it. They’re just better.
And I agree with Airman. The excuses seem to be starting awfully early.
Naw, the Vikings still had a chance and blew it at the end. Don’t tell me you didn’t see that uncalled horse collar near the end there, though. I also saw at least two uncalled facemasks against AP, a couple of bounce passes ruled as complete.
It’s the disease that has permeated sports announcing.
I am not one to long for the “good old day” but I do miss it that games are no longer announced, they are bashed through your skull. Why can’t we have more announcers like Ray Scott, Van Patrick and Lindsey Nelson.
