Default Kornheiser out on MNF

There is a God. Just saw it on Yahoo. He's afraid to fly so Gruden is taking his place.

Good riddance Cornholio. He was a waste. This can only be an improvement.

It's Gruden. We'll see how much of a difference he is. I hope he can be better than Korn-holio!

It is about time. Unlike some here I like Tony. He has a very good sence of self-deprecating humor. On PTI he is great - most of the time.

Unfortunately, they put him on MNF to help promote PTI and he was terrible from day one. He had no business in that booth anymore than any of us did. They should have killed that experiment after the first season.

At first the flying thing seemed like kind of a farce, but it could be.

Here is the quote from Tony:

Quote:
Kornheiser added: “I am totally grateful for the MNF opportunity that I truly enjoyed the last three seasons. I feel we got better each year. My fear of planes is legendary and sadly true. When I looked at the upcoming schedule it was the perfect storm that would’ve frequently moved me from the bus to the air. I kept looking at the schedule the past month and wanted to find a way to quietly extricate myself. If I could handpick a replacement of a football guy, I would cast a net and drag in Jon Gruden. He is the two things you most want — smart and funny — and has the two things I don’t — good hair and a tan. I love PTI and am looking forward to continuing to yammer and yodel with Wilbon until the end of time.”
I'm not sure how I feel about "chucky" in the booth. He obviously knows football. It remains to be seen if he can explain it in an informative manner.

Here's hoping the Raiders make it back on MNF.

I would have been fine with two in the booth. Adding a 3rd voice, regardless of who it is, promotes the idea that the more "mindless babble" the better.

Its a football game ...not a variety show. But don't tell that to the masterminds at Disney. We're lucky they didn't replace him with Hanna Montana.

Great news... Kornheiser was just unbearable at times & I hope having the third person being able to actually provide football knowledge & insight sticks for years to come. The whole comic relief angle is tired. There was only one Howard Cossell.

Wow - I might actually start watching MNF games again even if the Steelers aren't playing. Still won't watch any of the rest of the crap on that network, though.

Thank God I won't have to look at that nasty combover anymore. I never liked Kornheiser but wish him well.

I'm looking forward to Chucky in the booth! His facial expressions have always been priceless and the man knows his shit. Plus - he's a lot easier on the eyes than KornDog.
