Al Michaels: Bob Costas Really Needs to Drink a Tall Cold Glass of Shut Your Fat Mouth You Chubby Pisher Juice

Or words to that effect.

He spoke to the Hollywood Reporter about competition from the new Thursday Night Football show on CBS.


How do you plan to handle the Washington Redskins nickname controversy on the air?

Gaudelli: Just like we handled it last year. No one's tuning in to the game to hear our opinion on should the name be changed or should the name be left the way it is. We're doing the game; it's really not under our jurisdiction to be weighing in. If we were a studio show, it would be different.

Lazarus: [Costas] did that, so we don't need to address it again. It was only relevant for Bob to do it in that game [Oct. 13, 2013] because that was the first game after the controversy bubbled up again, and it was a Redskins game.

Michaels: You should have seen Twitter on Bob that night, but that's a whole other story. Our audience wants to watch a football game, and all you really do to fans when they're watching the game, if you go in that direction, is piss 'em off. They don't want to be lectured to -- period.

I assume this "Lazarus" has some connection to Costas and so was trying to put in a kind word for the preening jackass.

Corrected: No, they were talking about whether CBS' new Thursday Night Football show would be competition for their continuing Sunday Night Football show.

Which makes Michaels' dig a bit edgier, as they're co-workers at NBC, I guess.

It also explains why Lazarus, whoever that is, speaks of "we" making the previous statement on the Redskins' name.

Thanks to Buzzion for that correction.
