No fan of Tommy Trojan but anyone whose career highlight is reading canned "puns" on Wipeout should think before mocking a "clown college."

He was better at late-night, end of day, pontificating.

At 5:00, he will be spitting out rants on issues that have been chewed at all day. He has no highlights (many days) that haven't been quipped and punned to death already.

I have no probs with him back on SC but the time slot change is a fail.

I actually enjoyed Tom Rinaldi when he had the chance to do some play by play. But that crap he has to write for the rejoins, etc, is just gag-inducing.

Agree 100%. The little moment with the dog lost in the tall grass was typical. Peter's comment when the dog re-emerged was perfect. "Now, where the hell have you been?" Very nice.

I agree Zinger is one of the best ... His little edginess with Faldo back in the day was great to listen to. Zinger works well with a pro like Tirico but Tirico, is a little too prissy for me and I would like to see SVP get more time in the big chair.

I thought Olbermann's original targets were the Fan's morning chuckleheads (Boomer & Carton)? Getting Francesa involved was collateral damage. B&C are lame. Francesa is a beeg boy and a veteran of these kerfuffles with constant tormentors like Raissman and Mushnick and their ilk. He has no real worries in this "feud." I dare say Francesa's FAN show (not counting YES viewers) outrates Olbermann's numbers on one of the ESPN sideshow channels.

KO is an arrogant, pompous, fatuous, clown whose only real talent is personal attacks. The whole world hates him, he believes, and not without justification. He hopes to garner some blowback in the NY market to his umpty-ninth unwatchable program. By all means, take shots at Carton - a loudmouth lounge comic - and the overrated Boomer. But - as a longtime radio professional - I have a lot of respect for Francesa. Not a regular listener but I liked him with Dog and without. The haters - here and elsewhere - resent his status and longevity. Olbermann won't last long at this gig either. His frazzled ego will erupt in some cataclysmic tirade that will destroy the next last bridge he crossed.

Once again, the whole concept of the Pammies is flawed. You are mixing stupid things people say with clever things. Holtz (who often contributes both) should be praised not lumped in with Matt Millen ... The Weis jibe was right on target. As was Musberger's gambling aside. Make separate lists.

Spent three hours Sunday with MLB monitoring the WC and home field results. Three hours with Harold Reyolds is a bizarre experience. He's sometmes quite funny and insightful from the ex-player's perspective but he's mostly just a rambling nightmare who gets fact after fact wrong.

Absolutely agree ... Beadle has hosting chops. She and Cowherd were a good pairing on SN. She's likeable, attractive (in a non-threatening way) and smart. But Cross-Over was a cross-up from day one. Alas, she's likely headed down the game show, reality show or curling coverage at the Olympics.

Dan Patrick is only a slightly more likeable Joe Buck. His banter with the toady "bros" on his staff is painful at times. Who is Matt Harvey to mess with the great DP?

The 18 game season will not ever happen. 16 games is too many as it is. Pre-season is a cash grab that folks have learned to ignore.The owners AND PLAYERS have to bargain for fewer games and extended careers.

Lomas was always fun; a great smile and personality; but I don't think he brought a whole lot beyond the usual O-lineman jargon. But that certainly wouldn't be reason enough to dump him as there are several more on the ESPN roster.

Charissa is to be the star of FS1. Some choose to damn her for being good looking, wears short skirts, etc. But she gets the hosting role, she works well with jocks, and has all the tv-genic essentials that EA hasn't.

She's gorgeous, vivacious and playful and should make an excellent reality show host but --- I'm expecting something as lame as Wipeout with the over-rated John Anderson.

Charissa Thompson will miss Colin. She has done an outstanding job on SN. She is as quick, as smart, and as snarky as she who went before. But she is so glamorous, well-dressed, with guns and gams to die for. Good luck CT
