YYYYOOUUUUUU'RRRREE FAAAAAAHHHHHHRRRRRRRDD! Translation: CBS Sports has removed "Prime Time" Deion Sanders from their studio lineup for "The NFL Today." (USA Today) I guess his old album says it all: it's got to be the money. Oddly enough, CBSSportsline.com still has his profile up, though. Dig this list of candidates on tap to replace him, though: Originally posted by that USA Today article Candidates to replace Sanders include Shannon Sharpe, Rod Woodson, Seth Joyner and Neil O'Donnell. Older Deion news: this thread (The W) Star wipe, and...we're out. Thrillin' ain't easy. THE THRILL ACW-NWA Wisconsin Home Video Technical Director...& A2NWO 4 Life!

Isn't the CBS show the lowest rated of that type? The sad part is most of his teammates loved him and he was a polite repsectful guy and good friend. The on air persona seems to have gotten the better of his common sense. Perception is reality

ICQ: # 7 Posted on 14.5.04 1723.18 | Instant Rating: 5.11 Shannon Sharpe could be a very good fit on a pre-game show, but he's gotta be very careful not to become Deion #2. I think Deion coulda been a good fit because he's got a natural charisma to him and he can be an entertaining guy, but he always seemed more interested in getting his own act over than providing any real insight into the league or the matchups. Michael Irvin is guilty of the same more often than not IMO, but Countdown could cover for it much easier since they have three strong guys around him. Sharpe's a good talker, but has to be aware of not falling into this same trap. The Toronto Maple Leafs: Hockey's equivalent of the Chicago Cubs, but easier to hate.

He seems pretty comfortable in front of the camera, but he's not all up in everybody's area like Deion and his ego doesn't seem huge. Gravity is a contributing factor in nearly 73 percent of all accidents involving falling objects.

He needs to be MORE careful to not be Sterling Sharpe #2. Although I'd love to see CBS and ESPN set up some sort of program where they simulcast the two Sharpe boys going back-and-forth for a half-hour every Sunday. "Am I saying Ray's a cross-dresser? No, that's just what I heard."

AIM: # 10 Posted on 19.5.04 1243.21 | Instant Rating: 0.00 One annoying NFL pregame person down one to go. Someone please get rid of Michael Irvin. Maybe now CBS will be watchable on Sunday mornings. Are you a professional halfwit or talented amateur?

Wouldn't it be the height of irony if Eagle management gets tired of his act and they end up trading him to Baltimore?
