    Default Why Tony Kornheiser is missing from PTI...

    As a fan of ESPN's "Pardon The Interruption", I was wondering why Kornheiser hasn't been on the show. The reason is typical ESPN bullshit, and it's not the first time. When ESPN is so short of quality programming that all they can offer is "First And Ten" (or whatever the hell the half hour discussion show with Woody Paige clipped from the morning's "Cold Pizza show, and don't get me started on that crap-fest ) you'd think they would try to nurture one of their better shows. You'd be wrong.

    Here's a link to the story:

    Woody Paige is an idiot. I wonder how these guys can get gigs on tv. That Cold Pizza show is just plain bad IMHO.

    Mike and Mike in the mornings is probably my favorite ESPN show, besides PTI.

    Can't believe the fucks at ESPN are that uptight.

    That article is from 2002. Tony has been on PTI several times since then and he no longer does his radio show and hasn't since 2004 when Colin Cowherd took over for him.

    Tony probably isn't on there now because he's preparing for his job on Monday Night Football in around 2 months.

    Damn, didn't even catch the date.

    I should close this fucker up, Craig. Just cuz I'll never get the minutes back that it took me to read that old ass article!!

    Really though. I like Tony, and hope he does well on MNF. Don't know if I can take his yelling during a MNF game, but we'll see.

    Why in the hell did they not choose to use Chris Berhman on Monday night?

    Because I would have commited suicide.

    I'm sick and tired of Chris Berman's schtick. It's old now, and he's no where near as good as he used to be.

    It's bad enough that they've got Theismann up there. Why not inject some new life into the booth?? Preferrably somebody that doesn't suck ass.

    Yeah Wood Paige does suck. He's wrong on everything. Always trying to be the one to make these ridiculous predictions.

    Berhman is ok as a studio host, but sucks as a play by play guy.

    Kornheiser will be a wait and see type thing as he is entertaining, but from a technical standpoint he knows more than Dennis Miller did, but not sure how much more.

    At least with the new Monday Night football crew the horrible team of Joe Theisman & Al McGuire was broken up.

    You know, PTI is one of the only shows on ESPN I still watch. LeBetard is alright, I was able to tolerate him when he filled in for Wilbon, and just for a little while he's been filling in for Tony, but I'm getting sick of him and the other guy who was on for Wilbon today and the past couple days.

    Tony and Mike make the show. If they're not there, then it really isn't the same PTI.
    In and out. I didn't even make that pun on purpose.

    OK, then please tell me you are also sick of John Madden. The Raiders are my second fav team, and I am forever grateful for his coaching accomplishments there, but I am sick of him. And yes, I am tired of Theismann too...he never shuts up. I like Kornheiser on PTI, but part of that is the chemistry between those 2 guys is perfect. I will be interested to see how he does.

    I usually try to catch a repeat of PTI. Good show. It is on pretty early on the West coast. I think that TK is just prepping for MNF like others have said.

    Also as Sucka mention, thank god Berman is not in the booth. He was good in the 80's & 90's, but enough already. I am ok with him on the studio set.

    I am also tired of Madden. There must be a lot of old guys still watching for NBC to bring him on Sunday night.

    They need some new NFL blood in the announcer booth.

    I do enjoy watching PTI. TK and Wilbon make the show-more so TK. It sucks he won't be on there as much since he's doing MNF. I'm not sold on him doing that. He looks kinda lost out there. Of course he's next the that windbag Theisman so that may have part of it. Mike and Mike is great also. They crack me up.

    If looks could kill, I'd stare at everybody!

    I think Kornholer is gonna break his neck looking back and forth all damn night! The dude needs a booster chair and some more balls to cut in when he has something to say. I like the guy, but he needs to grow a pair!
    Just go for it!
