Congratulations, Mike Tirico. You’re now apparently qualified enough to call Thursday Night Football.
The drama surrounding Thursday night broadcasts began when NBC reportedly proposed Tirico, whom they signed away from ESPN last May, take over play-calling duties. In response, the NFL released a vague statement right before the season, stating its contract with NBC required the Sunday Night team 锟斤拷 which the statement referred to as the impressive pitch of specifically Al and Chris 锟斤拷 to cover Thursday nights, as well. Having NBC’s A-team call the games may have lent them a bit of credibility, perhaps important for short-week matchups that often featured terrible football.
It is up to NBC to determine who the talent is for both nights based on those parameters, the statement read.
With Michaels and Collinsworth already set to call Sunday night games, NBC was left with no other option and off Tirico went to cover the Rio Olympics, the Ryder Cup and Football Night in America 锟斤拷 the pregame show before Sunday Night Football.
Tirico has 26 years of experience in sports television having joined ESPN in 1991 as a SportsCenter anchor before taking over play-calling duties.
The poll also found that NFL fans generally had stronger opinions about the players’ antics 锟斤拷 people who did not identify as diehards tended to respond don’t know or no opinion more often when asked about political aspects of the game.
