Default Max Kellerman leaves ESPN

If you are an Around the Horn fan and have wondered what happened to Max since late January, evidently ESPN refused to match what Fox Sports Net offered him, and he will have a new show called "I-Max" on FSN debuting sometime in May. This may be old news to some of you, but I have been wondering for a while what happened to Kellerman since Tony Reali has been hosting ATH. I read somewheres that they may scrap ATH, I hope not, I hated the show in the beginning, but it eventually grew on me.

Well, I hate Tony as the host. But he's getting better, plus they've got great writers for the show. If Woody Paige wasn't a blubbering idiot when it comes to sports he'd be the best. I think they should use some of that money and use it on Zachariah Selwyn to host ATH.

I saw Jay Marriotti mention on the show they got cancelled. I don't know when the last show is though. I agree about Woody Paige, it would be the guy from my town that's the comic relief.

I'm a big fan of Woody, he may be comic relief, he usually has good points though too for the most part, better than most of the other panelists.

By the way, when Mariotti said that, it was an April Fools Joke.

I like ATH. Its good comic relief some days. I wondered what had happend to Max, until I saw him on best damn sports show a few weeks back and guessed that he'd made the switch. Of course now they are running the "I-Max" ads. I wouldnt mind seeing Zach from Dream job get the ATH job like has already been sugested by diceman.

The show shouldn't be about the host, so it can still be good as long as it has the writers. I watch it regularly, and realized Kellerman left sometime ago.

I don't think thats correct Marc. That show needs a strong host to keep things moving. I wasn't a big Kellerman fan, but he kept the troops in order, even if he did let Bob Ryan win all the time.

Haven't watched it I don't know how long. Forgot it was even still on. I did know that Kellerman had moved to Fox, but didn't even think about the stupid show on ESPN.

Pimp's right, though: that's one show that NEEDS a host with a bigtime control and ego to push around these voices, many of whom are some of the bigger egos in sports writing. (Ryan, Mariotti, and Paige are members of the All-Ego Sports Writing Team--at least Ryan has some deserving, but, that's why he's captain.)

Damnit ESPN ****s something up real good again. That is really disappointing because Max was the friggin man. Tony is ok, but Max da man.

Yeah Kellerman was better. Tony's just a little too soft. I still enjoy and watch the show even though they April fooled me.

I like Reali. Max was too annoying to me... which is why I hate I, Max.

What's with this Dream Job guy hosting Around the Horn now? Is Reali fired as host?

The Around the Horn page on ESPN.com still has Reali listed as the host... but it still has Michael Holley on there too, so that kind of shows the page is outdated.

http://espn.go.com/eoe/around_the_horn.html

Maybe Reali was just on vacation. If he's not on ATH but he still appears as stat boy on PTI, then maybe he was fired, or they were just trying someone different. :-/

Reali was back today, I guess he had the week off? Funny that he appeared on PTI even when he wasn't hosting ATH...
