You're kidding, right ? Kornheiser is the one who fired Theisman.
I dunno why people like TK on MNF, all he does is read jokes from a teleprompter and make really dumb observations about football ?
My wife knows more about football than Kornheiser.

They're bringing in Jaworski(sp?)

And I actually like Tony....

I think he makes a lot of Jokes, but at the same time I think he's pretty knowledgable about the game...

It's not like Dennis Miller who was strictyl a comedian...and not that good of one IMO...

Tony actually knows a good deal about sports...

Dang, I said he tells jokes.
What do you want, comedy or football banter ?
People may not like Theisman, but unlike Kornheiser he knows something about football.
You want a funny guy, I say bring on Garry Shandling, there's a guy with a
very funny schtick.

Great news. Now they just need to get rid of Kornheiser. I like him just not on MNF, he needs to focus on PTI, one of the best sports shows on tv.

I don't remember that specific question, but I understand what you're talking about...

But my answer to that would be: "to each his own"....I guess it just doesn't bother me as much as other people....I loved the way he gave Theisman such a hard time. I think those "stupid" questions were just a low key way of him taking shots at Theisman...

MNF has always been about entertainment and silliness in the booth...Atleast they didn't just stick a comedian in there and actually got someone with knowledge about sports...JMO

Kornhieser ask the so called stupid questions because Theisman is always saying some inconsequential comment about a play or a player. things regaurding what he could or should have done that is completely out of the realm of a possibility. Theismans job was to add color commentary not try and dominate the both and think he is the star of the game versus the players.

Even though he is a Notre Dame alumni but I am glad to see he got axed. He made a fool out of himself long enough.

Kornheiser is so bad I've stopped watching for a bit and turned on the radio.

I know it would never happen, but every time that someone gets canned from MNF, I always hope that Jim Rome gets the job. He would do wonders for MNF's ratings. People would tune in just to see what he has to say.

A guy that knows sports and has a sense of humor.

Kornheiser's role is to ask the questions the person who doesn't know alot about football would ask. And Vinny beat me with the Bill Walton reference

Exactly.

IMO, they got rid of the right guy.

I like the Walton Comparison. My vote goes for Michael Smith, but with my luck they'd put Skip Bayless on there.
