Joe Theismann Throws Ron Jaworski And Tony Kornheiser Under The Bus Over ESPN Sacking

JOE THEISMANN IS STILL RED FACED (OVER ESPN SACKING): METRO BOSTON has a seemingly interminable interview with Joe Theismann. But thankfully, we were able to dredge something mildly entertaining out of it - Joey T. once again melting down over getting thrown out on his ass by ESPN.

The celebrated restaurateur certainly has been polishing up his spin for some time now: “The ratings have gone up 50 percent and the executives don’t even talk to my boss and tell me that they didn’t like the fact that I talked about football, you have a little trouble trying to process how you could have done better.

Hold it right there, somebody get Ron Jaworski on the phone - does he realize that ESPN won’t like it if he talks about football?!!!

Theismann: “For Mike [Tirico] and Tony [Kornheiser] and Ron, it’ll be a learning process again, because Ron hasn’t done television.

Ron hasn’t done television“? Theismann shows why ESPN really blew it by sh–canning him - with his ability to break exclusive, completely accurate news like that.

And finally, our favorite part - the continued crybabying about Tony K.: “Tony is extremely neurotic. … “Monday Night Football” cannot be an extension of “Pardon The Interruption,” because the game is too important.

I will say this — I believe, 100 percent that you cannot insult the football fan. “Monday Night Football” is about football, and I hope that they continue to deliver that product to the fan.

Well if football fans felt *insulted* last season, I have a feeling they’re really going to love ESPN’s new MNF hire.
