    Looks like a news reader when talking football...just a plain misfit.

    He's too much full of himself. He's also not that funny. Can't take the guy, to be honest.

    I agree and it's nothing to do with politics - O'Reilly would look just as pompous and out of place - Olberman just thinks he's smarter than everyone else when he's not.

    NBC's Sunday Night Football staff sucks except for Madden and Michaels.

    Get rid of Collinsworth, Costas, Barber, whoever else they have. They suck.

    Guys, really. Is there anything you can just, I don't know, tolerate?

    I tolerate Olberman - by not watching.

    Olberman is a bitter and nasty person. I find it hard to laugh at his stuff when I know his TV persona, at least where it relates to sports, is all fake.

    So then: who is enjoyable/watchable/knowledgable/tolerable etc.?

    I'm sorry for being seemingly contrary, but this site is incessant in trashing whatever there is to trash. I imagine all the account receivable accountants/plumbers/lawyers/dentists/etc. on this site have their detractors.

    Tiresome, gents and ladies. Improve it or move on. Otherwise, be CONSTRUCTIVE.

    I soooo miss Boomer and Tom Jackson on Sunday nights. I am not the biggest Tom Jackson fan, but he and Berman still are the best by far at doing the highlights of the game.

    Wow....another Olbermann thread? Why not just resurrect the 400 other Olbermann threads rather than start another.

    No Jersey Selected

    That exactly what it is (and why I can't stand him, too). Well put.

    Yeah. That's why he became a STAR as one of the lead anchors on SportsCenter.

    Awe, thats not nice. Madden is definitely a parody of himself. But you gotta love him. He's sort of that uncle you see at Christmas who "has lost a step or two", but you have so many great memories that he was a part of, that you just humor the hell out of him.

    Olbermann has a degree of sports knowledge that is seemingly quite high. His problem is that he simply does not fit into the NBC format.

    Do you have any idea how stupid a notion it is to think people's problem with a SPORTS writer/commentator/guy is really his politics? Go look up the politics of most of the top 'named' sports guys. They are almost all liberal.

    I like Keith, but wouldn't put him on a sports program. He's simply to divisive politically and politics should have nothing to do with spots.

    That said, you nailed it.
