Booger McFarland was not bothered by speculation about his job

Booger McFarland

Booger McFarland is no longer on “Monday Night Football” after two years of criticism, and that is fine by him.

McFarland, 42, spoke with the New York Post’s Andrew Marchand for a piece about his plans now that he is not going to be part of MNF’s broadcasting team.

McFarland seems like he is not too bothered by losing the gig because he never expected to get it in the first place. He was just an analyst on SEC Network when he got the job, so no longer having something he arguably was unqualified for and did not expect to get was not terribly disappointing.

There were months of rumors that ESPN was looking to replace him and Joe Tessitore, but he says that did not bother him.

“For me, the constant speculation was not that big of a deal,” McFarland told Marchand. “Would you like not to have it? Sure, come on, man. That’s human nature. Did it affect me or bother me one iota? Not really.”

McFarland is still under contract with ESPN and figures to have a prominent role with them as an NFL analyst, even if he does not work as a broadcaster.

It’s unclear who will replace McFarland and Tessitore on Monday Night Football, but we have some ideas. Here is The Post’s full story on McFarland if you want to read more.
