Keith Olbermann lashes out at MacLean, Rogers over reported plans to change hockey hosts

Olbermann made it clear in a Twitter rant that he doesn't agree with the expected announcement by Rogers that Strombo won't be back as the host of Hockey Night In Canada.

Count Keith Olbermann among those who think that Rogers' reported plans to dump Hockey Night in Canada host George Stroumboulopoulos are somewhat misguided -- to say the least.

Or, in the former ESPN and MSNBC announcer's own words on Twitter, "the dumbest thing I've seen in 36 years in TV sports." Oh yes, then there's his claim that those in charge of the hockey show are "morons".

And those were some of the nicer things Olbermann tweeted about reported plans to replace Stroumboulopolous with former host Ron MacLean.

He even went as far as saying the move was precipitated by MacLean in ``a Napoleonic coup."

No doubt to the relief of both Rogers and MacLean, he promised to end his tirade Tuesday morning:

Leaving no doubt as to where he stands, Olbermann also changed his profile picture to a photo of himself with Strombo.

The fact that Olbermann has come out strongly against the reported move is no surprise. First off, Olbermann comes out strongly against a lot of things (i.e. Donald Trump, the NRA and much more.)

Secondly, Strombo has been a frequent guest on his YouTube show.

MacLean did not respond to a request for comment. His Twitter account @RonMacLeanHTH was silent on the matter.
