    Buoniconte Ousted

    Inside the NFL just had a major shakeup, this sucks those guys were good together. After this I wouldn't be surprised if Marino left after this season and just concentrated on CBS.

    NFL | HBO Shakes It Up - posted at KFFL (http://nfl.kffl.com)
    20:53 PT: Rudy Martzke reports for the USA TODAY HBO's Inside the NFL has released Nick Buoniconti, Len Dawson and Jerry Glanville and added Bob Costas. Costas just signed a three-year deal through 2005 at about $2.5 million a year. He will become co-host of Inside the NFL with Cris Collinsworth and Dan Marino, according to HBO president Ross Greenburg. A fourth member might be added to Inside the NFL, possibly Cris Carter or Shannon Sharpe.

    This really irrates me. Seeing how Len Dawson role was narrowed last year by Chris Collinsworth was shameful. Now, the axing of Nick. Nick is very well respected, knows football, and brings a nice banter to the show. Could this be age discrimination?

    I agree....I've been watching that show for years....It just won't seem the same......One thing I won't miss is Len Dawson picking KC to win EVERY SINGLE WEEK.......Collinsworth and Buoniconti were at least objective in their selections.
    Go Bills.

    those guys had chemistry...the show was different, and i'm sick of bob costas' grill everywhere i turn. he's a self-proclaimed baseball man for cryin out loud. even though i hated jerry, i loved the way cris shoved him asside 20 times an episode...can you imagine danny having to work with that loudmouth, sharpe? he'll kill him.
    ps- hey billsfan, thats why len always came in last in the picks segment, lol

    Bob Costas???? He TOTALLY sucks! :mad: I thought he said hated football when the NFL was on NBC and that football players were a bunch of cry babies running around in tight pants. :mad: So he left football to broadcast basketball. :nono: I know for a fact that I am sticking to my boys on FOX now!

    Isn't Marino going to the CBS pregame show? Maybe Nick can follow him over there.

    I wish Marino would go to the FOX pregame show, it is done better and has more to it than the CBS one along with some good commentators on FOX. That sucks that they got rid of Nick, but I wonder how many fights Shannon and Dan would get into if they do the show together. Bob Costas sucks by the way.

    If Madden and Summerall are gone, who does the commentary on FOX?
