I completely forgot to watch the last installment of HBO's Inside the NFL last night and maybe that's pretty telling of how far down the show has fallen. The head honchos state the reasons for canceling the show are all of the other highlight alternatives out there and that people are just burnt out by the time Inside airs.
While they might ultimately be right that doesn't mean Bob Costas has to be happy about it. Via SBD....
Cris Collinsworth said, “As (Dan Marino) put it to me yesterday, he’s never been fired from a job before.”Well then. That's the way to go out on a good note Bob! Let's not forget that you're the only one of that cast that has another show on HBO that isn't necessarily pulling in the ratings. You know the one named after yourself....Costas Now? Be careful my friend.
Bob Costas: “Who said that any of us got fired? Just because somebody made a boneheaded decision to discontinue one of the best and longest shows on television, that doesn’t mean any of us got fired.”
(The show re-airs tonight, so I'll try to grab the video)
