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.
What @Strombo did was let experts, guests talk, w/o the mawkish sucking up by the guy who reenacted the "live" role from Weekend @ Bernie's— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) June 20, 2016
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.
