The only reason to watch ATH is Woody Paige and the occasional appearance by Bob Ryan, other than that it's just too stupid. I,Max is terrible. Kellerman is a genious...when it comes to boxing. For all other sports I'd rather listen to my grandmother argue. Anyway the greatest sports show on tv, minus sportcenter, is PTI. I wish PTI was on 3 hours a day or they were a tandem radio duo. Now that would be good listening.

I agree. PTI is good.

Kellerman was passable at around the horn because he wasn't the centerpiece of the show... IMAX (copyright violation) .. well.. errr. that just sucks. BDSSP is terrible too... I wish sport shows would stop going for the comedy/novelty factor and actually have some content.

By the way, Kellerman's contract with Fox is for a large 800K per. And we thought athletes were overpaid. Sheesh!

I enjoy ATH more than I, Max, but Reali isn't nearly as good a host as Kellerman. I don't think ATH is annoying...basically because I want to be a sports writer myself. But, Max is just a much more natural host. And, Kellerman wasn't fired. He quit because ESPN wouldn't pay him $1 million per.

The season ended for Rome to have some time with his family, it's coming back in the fall I believe.

Both shows are terrible, but the vcr pause feature is a lot more annoying than the mute button, so ATH.

Does it really matter? Both ATH and I, Max are derived from PTI anyway. I really thought the FOX execs would be a little more creative than this. They basically copied and pasted what he did on ATH, they score the argument, but in a boxing sort of way, which to me is pretty asinine. Even Max can't make the show exciting...
