1. I’ve mentioned many occasions that the one unfavourable with ESPN’s Monday Night Football ManningCast is that as a result of it is so good, we’ll now be subjected to 1,000,000 ManningCast copycats, and the overwhelming majority of them can be terrible.
However, ESPN has give you an idea for a brand new sort of ManningCast that can little doubt be a smash success.
Pat McAfee introduced Thursday that he is teaming up with Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions to do a “simulcast” for six games in the course of the college football season to be aired on ESPN2.
Some particulars on the information:
- While McAfee used the phrase “simulcast,” this is not going to be a standard broadcast. It can be an alternate telecast comparable to what Peyton and Eli do on Monday nights.
- Peyton is not going to be an everyday, on-air a part of McAfee’s alternate telecast however will possible be a visitor sooner or later. This present is all McAfee’s.
- The McAfeeCast will possible debut in October, and it is anticipated that bowl games can be a part of the six-game package deal McAfee has agreed to do.
The marriage with college football, Pat McAfee and the ManningCast format is an ideal concept. There’s most likely no person higher outfitted proper now in sports activities media proper now to host a unfastened, freewheeling, chat-based various telecast than McAfee.
He’s acquired momentum, he is turn into an impressive interviewer and he has the precise persona that is proper for a ManningCast telecast.
College football can be the right discussion board for a McAfee-led ManningCast. The NFL is critical enterprise. Lots of people have mentioned that whereas they just like the ManningCast, they nonetheless want the normal broadcast for greater games so that they know what is going on on with penalties, down and distance, and recreation conditions.
These issues are much less necessary in college football. The sport lends itself to a lighter, extra enjoyable ambiance. Every NFL broadcaster has to fear in a roundabout way, form or kind about saying one thing that Roger Goodell might not like. This isn’t the case in college football.
And that is why McAfee will thrive in his new function.
