Max and ESPN have officially parted ways.

Max's contract was up, and ESPN wasn't willing to match the offers FOXSports and possibly HBO were throwing in his direction.

I'll miss his boxing analysis, but what I'll really miss is his presence on Around the Horn.

I know a lot of people hate him, but I thought he was hilarious, especially when he jawed with Woody.

Stat Boy sucks.

I hope he ends up on HBO, because Fox has crappy fights, crappy coverage, and a crappy Sammy Hagar intro for which he should be shot.

I think PTI and Around the Horn are filmed right next to each other. Stat Boy is still on PTI every day he hosts Around the Horn.

The PTI studio is one floor above the ATH studio. I don't know who would be good in Kellerman's spot (Tim Kurkjian comes to mind, then quickly leaves), but I know that I don't like Stat Boy.

It's funny, I couldn't really see Kenny in that role, but everywhere I've been today and everyone I've talked to has immediately mentioned him as a good replacement.

It would be interesting.

They all had such great chemistry with Max though, a real shame to see him go.

Never thought I'd say it, but I hate to see Max go as well. I hated ATH when it started out, but man did that show grow on me, especially after watching it daily while eating dinner in good ol' college dining halls.

BTW, my replacement vote goes to Kenny Mayne.

Ditto on Stat Boy, he just tries to hard. At least the real star of ATH, Woody Paige is still there. Paige-a-Mania is runnin wild!

Man this sucks so much. I was wondering where Max has been for the past week. Stat boy is getting better, but he just doesnt cut it, without a suitable replacement ATH is going to get cancled methinks...Lets light this candle...lol...

I'd like to see Bob Ryan host the show.

I'm more worried about who will replace Tony on the radio.

I wish I had known Max was leaving the show when I was up at PTI a few weeks ago. I would have liked to seen the show before it gets changed.

Whoever gets the gig has to move to DC, so that may be a factor in who they choose.

Is Kenny Mayne even HOSTING a SportsCenter anymore? From what I remember, he was doing feature packs.

I'd give the nod to him, only because he's dealt with panel shows before (2MD).

There's always Mike Greenberg, but I'm biased there. Would he move to DC? I'd say no.

I immediately thought of Kenny Mayne as well. My second choice would be Matt Winer.

Hell, if Warren Sapp ever retires, I say give the show to him. Okay, maybe not, but I hear Lennox Lewis needs something to do.



Damn you WWE for making me change my sig. I'm sure you have good enough reasons to get rid of Shannon, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Let me thus be the first to say: BRING BACK DAFFNEY!

Yeah, I've been wondering about Mr. Tony's imminent departure. I missed the announcement on the radio. WhatsupwithTHAT?

Also, I liked Reali today, he seemed a lot more relaxed, but I never get to see the show anymore, I sleep during the day.

Tony is leaving the ESPN show at the end of March. (he originally told me February, so I'm happy for the extra month.)

"too old and too many jobs to keep all of them" is the party line.

Never fear, Tony will back doing local radio in DC by the end of the year (no compete clause), probably on 980 (Andy Polley's station). The good thing is that they stream audio. The better news is that when the new show starts, it may be Tony AND Wilbon on the show.

I couldn't watch ATH because of Kellerman, so this is good news for me. With the right replacement, I might start watching it again. I'm with those who don't think Kenny Mayne would be right for the job, since he's way too goofy (in a good way) and relaxed. Off the current roster, I think Jon Andersen would be a good fit. Steve Levy or Karl Ravitch would also work out well there, but then they'd have to find someone to replace Ravitch on Baseball Tonight when spring returns. The best guy for the job, sadly, is already gone; Rich Eisen would just own in the ATH host role.

Hey, as long as their weeding out the crap, they should get rid of that annoying "disembodied voice", since it's sole purpose seems to be coming with way to say "...round the HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRNNNNNNNN"

Watched it with a few friends... they loathed Sealab and thought ATHF needed some work. SG:C2C and Birdman were more "...what the fuck?!" kinds of episodes where the payoff left you looking a little like: .
