If Rush could get canned for what he said as a Sports Commentator a few years back, Olberman should also be off the air.

The batteries in my remote picked a real bad time to take a dump.

Aren’t the games simulcast on radio? Makes TiVoing trick, of course.

Olberwomann won’t get fired because he’s a flaming, pinko, lib.

Hey, Olbermann, Groucho Marx phoned. He wants his eyebrows back.

So the libs say there’s no liberal bias out there on TV...
BROADCAST TV. Wrong.

I can only hope that Fox—Fox over the air, not cable—
could put someone like Rush or Hannity on in a similar
show. Of course the libs would say, you see? Right wing
controlled media!

I couldn’t bear to watch KO (the WORST TV personality
in the worrrrrrrrrrld!) so I watched part of Are You
Smarter Than A Fifth Grader instead. Foxworthy: “Now,
you know you’re trusting your fate to someone (a kid)
whose hands probably smell like play-doh..”

Now, Olby, face the camera and just say it: I AM NOT
AS SMART AS A _FIRST_ GRADER!

I don’t watch preseason football, normally.

But if the Stillers are playing the NBC game this year, I plan to mute those fools and listen to the radio broadcast, or a Leo Laporte podcast, or radioclassique.fr or XM’s new all auctioneer channel.

Anything but those three fools.

yeah I guess Olby was also doing a “countdown” show before
the game (that was what I was referring to...) as well
as being part of the football broadcast.

They gave Olberman an hour for his commie schtick before the game. Is NBC so desperate they have to show re-runs from msnbc that nobody watched in the first place? I hope this spells doom for NBC.

Olbermann always reminded me of Milhouse on 'The Simpsons'.

The mute button is your only hope! I only like listening to the SNF commentators, all others get muted.

His “Countdown” show is airing right now (after the game). We will see how he does with an audience of 24 people instead of the usual 12.

games may be on radio (Westwood One? Or your local
station is your team’s involved) so put your radio on to escape Olby

station finder...?

Yep. My hubby watches the game on TV, but listens to the play-calling on Sirius.

Agree. I can’t watch the pre-game, halftime, or post game shows. Too much yelling and stupidity (Bradshaw).

Same here.. I use to (I remember the CBS days with Jimmy “The Greek”) and to be honest I find them boring. The one thing I have noticed is that they worship the NY Teams or the eastern conference (either the NFC or AFC).. I like to watch the local post game shows
