    can't see it. Booger is so poor in that role can not see anyone except the extreme loonies claiming that. and I even doubt that. Disregard the noise. Good day.

    Yeah I tend to agree with this. I don't see much of an issue being made about letting Booger go.

    It won't be turned into a race issue. Chill. Booger's incompetence at the job is very, very well known. As was Witten's, a white guy. A lot of former players get to try their hand at commentating, many of them suck, this is just another case of that. Not many people are gonna chalk it up to race in the NFL of all sports. Just another former player who wasn't cut out for it

    I hate the PC culture as much as the next guy but preemptive overreaction to PC outrage that isn't gonna come doesn't help anything and is just another annoying side to the same coin

    Booger will land on his feet, he'll be just fine.
    He's been terminated of his duties as MNF analyst at ESPN, not terminated *from* ESPN.
    Like I said a few times he has friends in higher places at ESPN, like Golic for instance, he's tight with Greeny too and the brass there.
    And like others mentioned he works on the cheap.

    Now I did a little research trying to find out Tessitore's salary (it was kind of vague) Joe T. makes 100k for anchor duties per year but that doesn't include his salary on top of that for play by play duties and other responsibilities but the feeling here he was working on the cheap as well. But it looks like Romo will not be paired with him anyway.

    ESPN likes the way Romo calls plays before it happens and is one of the few analysts some viewers tune in to listen to him.
    Personally I like Romo too.


    ESPN is reportedly scheming up a big play to solve its Monday Night Football problem.
    According to Front Office Sports’ Michael McCarthy, the network is ready to offer Tony Romo an annual salary between $10 million to $14 million. That would make him the highest-paid sportscaster in television history, far exceeding the current top salary for an NFL TV analyst.

    Romo’s deal with CBS is set to expire after the current NFL season. He makes $4 million annually with the three-year deal he signed upon jumping to the broadcast booth following his retirement from pro football.

    During his three seasons in the broadcast booth, Romo has become enormously popular with viewers with his excitable personality and fascinating insight. Especially impressive was his gift for correctly predicting plays before they happened based on formation and situation.

    With Romo nearing TV free agency, speculation has buzzed over how his success could result in a huge raise. Viewers don’t typically tune into football telecasts for the announcers, but Romo’s analysis became nearly as compelling as the game he was announcing.

    Those are the kinds of headlines that ESPN would surely prefer to avoid next season. An announcing team shouldn’t be the story during a game telecast, especially due to its unpopularity and poor commentary. But if the MNF crew is the story because of notable calls and strong analysis, that would be welcome attention.

    ESPN’s reported contract offer for Romo could nearly double the top salary for a NFL TV analyst. According to McCarthy, Aikman is currently the highest-paid at his position with a $7.5 million annual salary. ESPN has paid big money for its MNF color commentator before, paying Jon Gruden $6 million a year. The gold standard for NFL broadcasters is John Madden, who earned $8 million annually.

    Huge money isn’t the only enticement ESPN is considering to nab Romo from CBS. As the New York Post‘s Andrew Marchand reports, ESPN executives have eyed CBS’ top NFL game producer, Jim Rikhoff, as a replacement for outgoing MNF producer Jay Rothman. Working with a familiar colleague would certainly make a move to ESPN more comfortable and Rikhoff’s familiarity with Romo would likely influence the choice for an ideal play-by-play man to pair with the analyst.

    On the CBS telecasts, Jim Nantz has provided less play-by-play commentary to let Romo’s analysis shine. Some detractors have said that Romo talks too much, often interrupting Nantz and preventing him from setting the scene and providing basic details on a given play. But Nantz realized that Romo enjoys talking through his thought process as the play begins, often leading to the analysis prized for being so fun and insightful.

    ESPN has struck out in their hopes to lure Peyton Manning and Drew Brees onto their Monday Night Football team, but they could be looking at a guy, who amongst the younger population, may be more popular than either of the two.

    According to a report from Front Office Sports’ Michael McCarthy, the network is considering four current employees for the gig.

    “At the top of the list are football analysts Louis Riddick and Dan Orlovsky, “SportsCenter” anchor-turned announcer Steve Levy, and former punter and fast-rising media personality Pat McAfee. Like nearly every company, ESPN and parent Disney have been hurt financially by the pandemic.”

    McAfee, former punter for the Colts and current sports analyst/podcaster/comedian was given the gig of helping call an NFL game for FOX in 2018, with praise from viewers.

    Steve Levy too enthusiastic for my taste, dialed up to 11 on every play.

    He'll probably say "I got fired so I probably won't be working there anymore."

    Not relevant, but Booger McFarland's got a great name.

    The current champ, however, is Ha Ha Clinton Dix.

    Pauly Walnuts is pretty good too.
