Dan Patrick joining Football Night in America + Inside the NFL Panel Announced July 9, 2008 6:16 pm

Former ESPN colleagues Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann are reuniting.  NBC has announced that Patrick, who was a former ESPN anchor and radio personality, is joining Football Night in America this fall to co-host the program.  “I’m delighted to be reunited with my tag team partner,” Olbermann said, and in an homage to a favorite SportsCenter catchphrase, “I can’t stop Dan Patrick from working with me again, I can only hope to contain him.”

In other NFL-related TV news, James Brown, Phil Simms and Cris Collinsworth were named as cohosts of Inside the NFL, which is moving to showtime after a long run on HBO.

NBC you’re pathetic to have Keith Olbermann on this show. You have lost my advertising target eyeballs. I’ll never watch your show(s) again. FNIA should be ashamed; more, embarrassed to have this left-wing nut on air. I’m certain I will not be the first person to boycott your show. Get some brains and fired this lunatic.

I have to agree, Olberman on Football Night in America is a disaster. He was awful, calling the wrong players name and acting like he and Dan Patrick had some funny insight. They need to do a much better job keeping on this program or back to ESP I ago.
