I don't know why, maybe I was frustrated because the Steelers were losing, but Tony Korn and Joe Theismen really started to get annoying. I dont mind Mike Trisico (sp?) he seems like a good play-by-play guy.

Had it on mute and was listening to steelers radio, but after seeing the diagram/health lesson on the appendix, I figured I made the right decision to mute the tv.

But wait...let's not forget the pre-game Roethlisberger is going to be pregnant next comment from Kornbutt (I mean kornheiser).
The announcers are a joke. For half of their salary I could pick joe-schmoe out of the stands to do a better job than they do.
I wish I could get Steelers radio here in Tampa. It would definitely be better than that crap they talk on tv.

Jiminy crickets - you could awaken the Three Stooges from their dirt naps and have them broadcast a better game than those idiots.:rolleyes: Did you notice when Korn made that stupid comment about Ben getting pregnant, the sarcasm was dripping out of that piehole of his and he rolled his eyes? I didn't have any foil balls nearby or he would have gotten one aimed right for that garbage disposal he calls a mouth. I think I'm going to follow 83's lead from here on out on MNF and mute the morons out.

I tried muting them but the Steelers broadcast up here in State College is like a 7 second delay - very annoying, why do they do that? I have XM radio - is Serus any better, if there is no delay I may switch to Serus for just this reason.

I actually enjoyed Kornhesier taking shots at Theisman - I do not think it is an act and that Tony regards Theisman to be a jerk going back to Tony writing about the Redskins in the 1980s

Low point of the broadcast was when Dwayne Wade dropped by for several minutes of pointless chatter, topped off by the photo montage of Wade wearing a series of spiffy suits.

Wade's appearance was even more pointless than Commish Goodell dropping in on Madden and Michaels during the Thursday night game - at least Goodell runs the league office.

Guests in the booth are pointless - if ESPN really is marketing its games to sports fans you woiuld hope those drop ins will get tossed ASAP.

After that shortsightedness I fully expected a lesson on stingray barbs and human hearts right before a promotional for a new reality series. Lucky for you that you get the radio feed. I wonder if I can get streaming via the internet?

ESPN is nuts -- why would you put Cornheiser on MNF -- He looks like the captain of the chess club standing there holding his mike with the comb-over and Theismann always has - and always will be the most annoying broadcaster/individual on the planet - going back all the way to appearing with new girfriend because I just dumped my wife of several years - Kathy Lee Crosby on TV right after breaking his leg -- only to hear in the press that she put a restrainig order on him right after that appearance -- between no NFL Primetime and these idiots on MNF, things just don't seem the same this year:banging:

Comb-over? ROFLMAO!!! :toofunny:

God forgive me for saying this, but I would rather listen to Howard Cosell (rest his soul) and Dandy Don broadcast a MNF game than Dumb and Dumber - Theisman and Kornholio.
