ESPN’s resident old man Tony Kornheiser usually spends his weekdays hosting a sports-based talk show in which he routinely discusses Dancing with the Stars and The Bachelorette. Many Americans find his senility charming. It just so happens that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers is not one of them.
“He’s terrible. I don’t think he’s funny. I don’t think he’s insightful. I don’t think he knows anything about sports,” Rodgers told a reporter while possibly assaulting a recently deceased horse. “You know who was better than Tony Kornheiser? Dennis Miller was 10 times better.”
But wait, there’s more.
Rodgers, who has worked with Kornheiser on Monday Night Football broadcasts had mixed reviews about the veteran reporters skills as a color commentator.
“He did no research. We’d sit in those production meetings and he would add absolutely nothing to the conversation,” Rodgers said. “I’d be like, ‘What are we doing here? This is stupid. You get in there with Tony and he’s asking you all these dumb questions that have no application to the game you are playing or anything you are doing.”
So basically, Rodgers thinks Kornheiser has a little room to improve.
