She was bad. Very bad. I wondered who the crowd was booing when she finished, her or the Eagles. You shouldn't have to wonder about something like that.

Listening to the totally unbiased and unopinionated grandiose radio hosts of the vikings radio network. Those guys are GREAT!

I'll take either one of them over Dan Dierdorf any day.

They are both horrible and I'll throw Dan Dierdorf in there as well. Nothing is worse than Madden at a Brett Favre game though.

Tony Kornheiser has no business being in a broadcast booth.

Same with whatever Gumbel brother does play by play- I can't remember which one it is, isn't there 10 of them???

He's horrible...On camera Mike Torico was cringing every time Tony went on one of his long boring rants last night. Last week Kornheiser had to talk about Favre every time Rodgers threw the ball, until Torico basically told him to shut up and let the kid play.

Yeah, but he's got the best comb over in the league!!!

If you look really close he's got like 3 strands of hair on the left side combed up over the top.

I literally turned the volume off last night he's so sickening!!

Madden and Dierdorf aren't too bad IMO, but they're getting old and can't quite see the game right and keep up with it. I cannot stand Kornheiser one bit though!

For whatever reason, ABC/ESPN seems to think you need 3 guys in the booth to have good commentary. Dennis Miller, Tony Kornheiser....these "regular Joe" commentators just don't work and 2 commentators are sufficient. One host commentator and one analyst/expert/former player.

And as for former player commentators....I absolutely loath Boomer Esiason!!!!!! Of all the NFL commentators there are (Kornheiser included), Esiason is the one I can't stand the most!

That whole MNF crew shouldn't be there. Tirico, Jaws, and Kornheiser. There has got to be better somewhere in ESPN that deserve a shot. I didn't mind the old SNF crew Theisemann got a little old for being as pompous as he was but it was no where near as bad as this debacle. Dierdorf doesn't belong in a booth either.

I thought Theismann was okay too.

I'd like to see how Strahan does. He always seems funny, yet knowlegable.

I've always like Kornheiser on PTI. But, he get's annoying on MNF.

The announcer that comes to mind as my favorite is probably Troy Aikman.

Agreed....PTI....I like him on there, but that's where he should stay.

Aikman is excellent! As is Johnston.

Aikman took too many shots to his head. An especially nice one was a shot from Jerry Ball on MNF against the Vikes. There really isn't much for decent announcers and PTI stinks.

Kornheiser is THE ABSOLUTE WORST on TV! I thought the Mike Patrick, Theisman and McGuire Sunday night crew was MUCH beter than this suckfest. MNF hasn't had much of anything good in a broadcast since Melissa Stark left!!!!! I don't mind Madden though (except when he's doing a Favre love fest I agree).

Aikman is pretty good except I don't like him on the Cowboy games and that Joe Buck he's with is only one half step above Kornheiser. Can't stand Dierdorf, never could. Totally agree the Vikings radio guys are AWFUL too, if I hear that dork say "the AFOREmentioned (insert player name here)" one more time I think I might crawl through my car radio to ring his neck!!!

Kornheiser, should just stay on PTI (I think he is great there).

Theisman was the worst, I couldn't stand watching a game where he was one of the commentators.

I love madden, I can't wait for each sunday to roll around.

Yeah they are bad. but when the thanksgiving game gets boring Madden starts off on his three legged turky bit with the yellow marker. I find it hilarious. I wonder if he does that even when the game remains exciting. I don't think I can remember a thanksgiving game that didn't get boooorrringgg. Maybe it's the chemicals in the turkey? Anyway I still think it's funny stuff. And no I do NOT miss the coaches clicker. That back and forth running of the clips and marking up the sceeen till you couldn't see anything anyway was annoying. And you missed a few plays while he did that mess. Also after a few lines he no longer made any sense. Great coach but lousy color guy. He did take a rag tag team and pummle the Vike in their last attempt at a Superbowl. Ouch.

You guys love Madden?? If I have to hear him explain stuff about football I knew when I was 3 years old again, I will scream. Al Michaels is about as exciting as watching paint dry as well.

I think a couple of those guys on the Vikings radio network are trying to do Jesse Ventura imitations. Maybe MNF should get Jesse?

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
