Dan Dierdorf Says What We're All Thinking, Or Rather Yelling About Kornheiser

Wednesday, September 26, 2007


Far be it from me to bash Tony Kornheiser (sarcasm folks), but now his peers are taking the Monday Night Football Analyst to task. CBS' Dan Dierdorf was on the Fox Sports Radio program "Out of Bounds" today and had the following to say about his counterpart at ESPN....

“I think people tune in to watch a football game because they want to watch a football game. If they wanted to watch a stand-up comedy show on HBO, that’s where they’d go” – Dan Dierdorf (Quote via SBD)
Burrrrn. You have to take note when people in your same industry are getting soundbytes at one of your employee's expense. Or do you? I guess any press is good press in this regard.

Or as some pointed out in the comments....it's pretty bad when a terrible announcer calls out another one. Can we let them just eliminate each other?

Under the heading, "It Takes One to Know One" we find one of the worst NFL announcers bashing another.

You know you've hit bottom when Dierdorf is saying you suck.

Oh my god, I'm about to defend ESPN! Mark it down!

In Kornheiser's defense, MNF has struggled for years to get back the audience it lost after the "glory years."

One of the biggest reasons for MNF's decline, IMO? DAN DIERDORF.

I don't like Kornheiser, especially when it comes to his love affair with Chad Johnson. And I think Dierdorf is right to an extent. But Dan, tread lightly.

One of the most annoying things about Korny and Jaws is the near constant tittering, chortling, guffawing, laughing and mumbling they do the whole goddamn game.

So we have Suzzee Creemcheez and her incredible mega success at getting information to stupid listeners about FEMA, Butch telling us about something that some player told her about his video games, Tirico wanting to blow his brains out and the two chuckleheads proving that not everyone is cut out for television.

Cheers Dierdorf. Always did like that guy. Don't know why people hate him so much. He was great with Enberg.

people in Philly really dislike Dierdorf, going all the way back to the Andre "dirty" waters stuff.

Cornholer is absolutel unlistenable.

On the other hand Dierdorf that Wascally Wabbit shouldn't really cast stones because Walrus Face Dan certainly isn't much himself.

At least DD has an excuse for why he is as boring as a bag of hair, he's an ex-jock who became a bad Broadcaster.

I'd rather do cavity searches in an AIDS clinic then listen to Cornheiser.

If they wanted to stick with the comedy routine they should have kept a comedian in Dennis Miller. Not have a writer trying to be funny all the time, when he really isn't.

I think what omar cruz is trying to tell us is that we should ship all the crappy football announcers out of the country so we don't have to listen to them anymore.

Sep 26, 2007, 7:29:00 PM  

I think omar cruz can go fuck himself and go out and spam some other blog.

Maybe that's why Dennis Miller didn't work out. I don't know what AA's stance on Miller is, but I liked the guy. Don't get me wrong, I don't think announcers should be talking about Britney Spears late in the game, but I appreciate when a guy can keep things light without disrupting the flow of the commentary.

Omar is saying that he loves Tony Korny's dental work and has an extreme fetish for drinking the rancid urine from Bangladeshian cesspools and open sewers.

Tony K may suck but he's 10,000 times better than Dan D.

Jealousy is a terrible thing Dan. Just be glad that you still get to torture us on Sundays cause if I was in charge you'd be loooooooooooong gone.

What are you talking about. I would take Dierdorf over that joke of an commentator/funny guy in the booth Kornheiser any day of the week.

Go Blue!

i kinda like the humor...if Kornheiser's himself -- like he is on PTI -- he's OK. if he gets either too serious or too over-the-top, that's when he falters.

how come no post about will letich and his bs article on a-rod about owning the cubs. did not check facts.

oh, i forget you only post if he was working for espn or they would be blamed somehow.

aa is so bias, cannot even call out leitch, are you afraid of what his commentators will do to your site or call. or maybe he won't link to you anymore.

you are just as bad as espn. the big lead won't even call him out for his mess up. but if this was mortenoson they would have 50 posts about this.

I watch football games to see and hear about football? Man, that sucks. I was really looking forward to the 45 minute uninterrupted Jamie Foxx interview to promote The Kingdom next monday.

Anon 8:29am- I have no idea what you're talking about because I don't read every article that goes up on Deadspin and rarely read the comments.

This is a site for mostly Announcing like GM said. Sorry to disappoint you and fill the interwebs with bias....if you have beef with it you can email Will....he usually responds to inquiries.

Sep 27, 2007, 10:38:00 AM  

Kornheiser blows, and Tirico is a little school girl.

I say team up Jaws or Dick Vermeil with Bob Ley. That's right, I said it, Bob Ley in the booth.

REACTION.

dierdorf saying this, though, is like hitler calling someone anti-semetic.

in the jets-dolphins game last week, when the dolphins made it 31-27 late, he made sure to drive the point home that the dolphins have to go for the extra point here. no need to risk it, because if you kick the PAT, all you need is a FG to tie and get to OT.

and he really said all that. no joke, yo. i'll take kornheiser over dierdorf any day.

MNF is unlistenable. The guys are constantly talking about shit that isn't directly related to game taking place on the field.

A couple of weeks ago during that Philly game, they had Charles Barkley on and it lasted the entire quarter. I was actually yelling at the television saying "shut the f**k up, I want to enjoy the game."

Kornheiser sucks. Last year, he took a shot at one of the classiest pro athletes around when Detroit Red Wing Steve Yzerman's number was retired by saying "does anybody even know this guy's number?"

Does anybody know why Tony Kornholer is even working?

Yzerman has more talent in his lung butter than Kornheiser has in his entire body.

If ever anyone with a brain and the power to fix the stupidity that is called Dan Dierdorf who thinks he is a TV commentator during any NFL game, they should make a serious effort to retire the retired NFL jerk.

For years this poor retired NFL jerk has been allowed to spew his putrid garbage and we the NFL fans have been forced to have to listen to it. Well, we are tired of it and if you doubt me, just google Dan Dierdorf sucks and you will see there are others who agree.

right... give Dick Vermiel a job in the booth, so he can spend the first 4 games of the season crying because he is so happy to be there.

and if I was in the booth with Dierdorf, I'd ask him to say Seedless Hibiscus 5 times fast...

...I can see it now...

"Theedleth Hibithcuth, Theedleth Hibithcuth......"

haha

DD Sucks.

DD is a good commentatoe if he is going for the same team you are. He is very biased and you can ALWAYS tell what team he wants to win. I dont see why he cant just call the game and leave all his OPINIONS about the game at home were his boyfriend is waiting there dreaming of being inside him.

I totally agree, I'm so sick of listening to Dan Dierdork and Bryant Gumball messing up NFL games on CBS. DD is totally biased and lets his idiotic opinions be known in the second half, BG is his lapdog and kisses his ass constantly. It's ridiculous and CBS needs to let them both go and hire someone with talent.

Dierdorf is a joke. He gets SO AMPED UP about every little thing and he says every player is ONE OF THE BEST IN THE NFL. Dude, it's not the Pro Bowl every week. Get him out of there already! Emmit Smith and Tony Kornheiser can join him.
