    A powerful phobia is forcing a man to quit a job that he loves, and while I don't want to be the kind of person that celebrates another guy's misery, I will celebrate the fact that the miserable guy can no longer make me miserable.

    Tony Kornheiser is leaving Monday Night Football, citing his fear of air travel, and the great amount of it that the 2009 season would require. His replacement will be Super Bowl-winning (and recently fired) head coach Jon Gruden.

    I didn't see much MNF last year so don't really appreciate how bad/what a pain in the *** Tony K was but I tell u what. I have been v impressed with Gruden. I saw him on the draft coverage at NFL network. He was brilliant imho.

    YAY!! That dude truly annoyed the living **** out of me. It ruined the game listening to his pop culture dribble and disregard for the actual game being played. Gruden was really good at the draft and he's obviously knowledgeable.

    T.K. was loud and obnoxious, and not in a good entertaining way.

    I'm not sure Gruden has the personality for MNF.

    At least he won't bring all the stupid fluff that Kornheiser does...how bad could it be? :icon_shrug:

    Of course, I reserve the right to change this statement should conditions warrant :yes:

    IMO.......

    MNF was never the same after Frank, Don and Howard left. I used to watch MNF just to tell Howard to shut up. But I watched it to say that. Those 3 are the ones who made Monday Night Football.

    few things are the same after the originators leave - but i'm glad that moron is out. Not sure how chuckie will be

    Not that it matters, one of the only times we go on MNF (unlike the raiders/broncos after all) will be the night cap, so we'll get the damn B team anyway

    My only regret is that "Terry Tate - Office Linebacker" from those commercials a couple of years ago didn't get to remove him...on camera. Gruden is definitely an upgrade.

    Right on! I loved it when Dandy Don would start "turn out the lights...the party's over"....ah, the good old days

    AND they actually reported on the game. Little by little - I guess to make it entertaining to others not so into football - the 'color' commentary and continued it's slide downhill..

    I gotta disagree. I watched MNF for the football, in spite of Cosell. He was an irritant, he added nothing, and I have never missed him for even a second.

    Of course I did, but I never watched because of him.

    Don't forget how much fun it was when Dandy Don puked all over Howard's shoes.
