Default I can't stand Michael Irvin

Not just because he's an ex-Cowboy either. I'm watching the post game show after Monday Night Football and he's an absolutely *****. There's a lot of dumb sportscasters, but Irvin makes Billy Packer look like he knows what he's talking about. I wonder what would happen if Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin were on the same show...

He got called out by one of the other guys.

Anything is better than Shannon Sharpe.

And yeah, I thought anything was better than Shannon Sharpe, but listening to Michael Irvin for about 10 seconds, made me channel to the Amityville Horror.

Default Re: I can't stand Michael Irvin

Irvin does exactly what ESPN hired to him to do ....... a change of pace, more contemporary, more hip, appeal to younger fans type on the panel ...

Of course this does mean he'll occasionally say things that have you scratching your head, but that goes with the territory ...

I'd listen to Irvin all day long over Tony Kornholio, that guy has no clue. I think Theismann is getting sick of him already, seemed he was giving Tony some attitude during the game.

We would need subtitles! The Hall of Fame seems to agree with you on Irvin. The man's a jerk! As a black man who speaks in complete sentences I find the presence of both Michael Irvin AND Shannon Sharpe on my TV particularly odious. It's sad that an articulate former athlete like Spencer Tillman (WHO ACTUALLY HAS HIS DEGREE) is relegated to doing the NCAA pre/post game shows while these two guys who make Moses Malone sound like William F. Buckley are doing NFL shows. It's embarrasing & disgusting.

I can't stand Irvin behind the desk either. But anybody that tunes in to ESPN (or any other network for that matter) for anything other than watching a sporting event deserves the punishment they're receiving.

I can't really relate to that, but I know there can be dozens upon dozens of other applicants ESPN can have that actually know what they're talking about. I know one of the Sharpe brothers is pretty good so I guess that's Sterling. Andre Ware isn't bad. He does ESPN college football games and he's not bad on the radio for the Texans. Those are the top two that come to mind and I would rather have them than Irvin.

Personally, I can't believe he's still employed with them. He's absolutly horrible! The remaining 3 on the show are ok. I wish they'd rag on him more often. Drugs kill brain cells! If he has any left, he has to thump his head every morning to wake them up.:brickwall

It's because of announcers like Irvin and Sharpe that make me appreciate the remote control every weekend. As soon as I hear either's mouth spouting off, click...

Hey, if ESPN doesn't want me watching there show, keep him on. Doesn't bother me as long as I have my remote...

Default Re: I can't stand Michael Irvin

I was never an Irvin fan when he was playing (hey, he was a Cowboy...'nuff said).

As an entertainer on ESPN, I 'enjoy' his schtick. I don't put a lot of stock into his takes, but I don't put a lot of stock into any of their opinions. But his personality is amusing enough, and that's why they hired him.

But Irvin has been getting on my nerves lately about the TO thing (dude has a man-crush on him or something) and his constant Reggie Bush-a-thon. It gets old, and he needs to have some fresh takes.
