During every single Monday Night Football game, fans at the stadium and at home complained about how stupid Booger McFarland’s crane was that essentially blocked the view of paying fans who shelled out a bunch of money to basically watch a game on TV that was placed on the back of it. It was supposed to be a tool that providing commentary from field level on a moveable cart with Jason Witten and play-by-play man Joe Tessitore in the booth.
For fans in 2019, they won’t have to deal with the Booger Mobile, because ESPN decided to axe it altogether after just one year of use, according to Michael McCarthy of the Sporting News.
Aside from the failed experiment of the cart, the trio of Mcfarland, Jason Witten, and Joe Tessitore struggled all year with each other, in part because it was Witten’s first time broadcasting, and partially because the three men weren’t together for most of the season.
Witten has since decided to un-retire and return to the Dallas Cowboys on a 1-year deal that was both celebrated by Cowboys fans as well as other fans who don’t have to hear him struggle in the booth anymore.
Many expect ESPN to just stick with a two-man booth of Joe Tessitore and McFarland for the 2019 season.
