I don’t know. This does not sound like the Dennis Miller I know. Although not as rough and profanity laden as other “comics,” he definitely is not funny in a clean way. I remember him being a football commentator for a while, and my first thought was, “What is he doing here? Making all kinds of non-football references. Football fans are here, live or in their living room, to watch the game, not hear clever (non-football) remarks and word play.” A distraction, not a plus.
Whether or not you liked the clever word play of Dennis Miller, I have to say that I can do without most of the brain-dead chatter of the so-called experts most of the networks have calling the games. “The key to winning the game here is to score points. The other keys are to keep the other team out of the end zone, and to not turn the ball over. You can’t win if you turn the ball over. And capitalizing on turnovers and red zone opportunities are key here.” Most everyone else in broadcasting today makes Madden look like a complete genius. Which is really saying something. At least he knows how to use the electronic doodle pen effectively.
I like Dennis Miller. I think his type of humor using phrases & words that go over alot of people’s heads, was not good for Monday Night Football. I think it left alot of people saying, “Huh?” Now, although not a commentator of the actual game, we have to suffer Keith Olberman’s thought’s on Sunday Night Football:cool: . Dennis Miller is on The O’Reilly Factor once a week for commentary & I believe he is on tonight’s show. His political leanings are moderate to conservative. He used to be liberal. If I can get it, I’ll listen to his radio show:thumbsup: .
Thanks for confirming my suspicion that he use to lean left. I agree he is not as conservative as many, but he makes good points using his humor on his show. Plus, everyone is a target, not just the left. I think his show is still evolving.
