Remote in hand, oppps, no, no GC. Got enough to do this morning without being sick. Ahmad Rashad? Charlie Rhymer? One's clueless, but has a very high opinion of himself ( love to play him for some money) and the other is an absolute bumbling idiot! What are they trying to do? Do they really have a plan? Here's an idea for you. Start at 6:00 AM till noon and run old Masters, U S Opens, ( not all of them Tiger Woods) and then put the idiots on until golf starts at 3 or 4. On Monday-Wednesday just put infomercials on in the morning. Who's listening to that useless babble anyway?
As an OP said, I may just tell the old cable company to let that one go. Only reason to keep it is the extra coverage on Thursday and Friday. Just a guess, but for those who like the ladies of golf channel. I'm betting Winn and Lauren are not long for the world with that crowd. They'll be moving on and for sure up.

Today's was good with Paula Creamer and NO AHMAD RASHAD! The fashion thing was a bit gay(no I'm not sorry for saying that) but it was slightly entertaining.

This is exactly the same issue when we try to watch the golf. Three blokes in the booth. Four blokes on the course, there is never one seconds when one of them is not rambling on with some useless information.  They sound like an episode of the View on Steroids all cackling at once.

The show used to be a lot better.  Now it has too much Rymer (he ruins anything that he's attached to), and too many opinionated/washed-up golf writers.  Their original formula was better, a sportsjock, a golfer, and a good looking woman.  Now, it's a cluster of people talking with nothing being said.  I play a lot of golf, but it doesn't mean I should be co-hosting a show on GC...get rid of Ahmad!

Bingo!

Pitch Ahmad and Rymer, limit Ginella to course reviews.

Rymer stuffing the cupcake in his face doing the food schtick for the 1000th time is the last straw for me. Please go away.

It is silly how the GC talent treat Rymer like some sort of expert.  This is the same guy who each year predicts a huge breakout year for Michelle Wie, only to look like an idiot.  He is a total waste of airtime.

Schizophrenic is a good term for that show. They're trying to be entertainers, but it's more like the Three Stooges.  The show has no personality or integrity, and very little value.  

I love Holly on the School of Golf and how in all the promos they make her say "I have some TIPS for you"  LOL.

As obsessed as I am with golf, I've never seen the show, but why knock the Three Stooges. :-)

As much as I love GW and Holly this train is way off there tracks. This morning you could feel Holly trying to get Charlie to just shut up. Everything is about what he did in his short tour life or Damon's butter cut. I think the show stinks and I will watch anything golf related.
Last weeks love fest with the Hot List made me sick. There is nothing fair about their testing. Spend enough dough and get a golf award. Heck even their comments are the same year to year.
GC the patient is sick and may not make it. Please rush it into treatment. Maybe George Lopez for some laughs or something.

The show has turned into the Beatles White Album. If they had just cut out the filler songs and made a single album, it would have been a masterpiece. Instead they indulged Paul's drivel (Honey Pie) and Yoko's "art."

They need to cut the show down to an hour. There's just not enough really interesting golf news to fill a two hour show five to seven days a week.

This is going away from the thread topic.

But I have to ask, how is the regular Joe supposed to play? Going back to tees after an OB, searching for a ball for 10 minutes when pros have hundreds of people on every shot to find them for them, and so on is stupid. "Relaxed rules" are fine by me.

Kuselias was tossed from ESPN because he couldn't keep it in his pants (supposedly had an affair with a young intern or employee despite having a wife and kids at home). So he goes to Golf Channel where he again can't keep it in his pants (in this case, who can blame him?). I'm guessing that was why he was removed from the show and ESPN took him back.

I had the pleasure of meeting Lauren Thompson in person last summer. Even hotter in person than on tv. I was stunned.

When did ESPN take Erik back?  I thought he left for NBC Sports Network.

Yeah it was NBS Sports Network, which used to be Versus.....

Heard Win no longer w golf channel? shes always w her new bf Evans White of new orleans  or at his house in the bahamas...
