Booger picked because he knows.

Live NFL Sky Sports Action, 1.15am CHANGES in major sporting commentary teams can attract almost as much attention as changes to the teams these days, writes Phil Agius.

Jon Gruden's departure from ESPN's Monday Night Football booth after ten years to return to the game as head coach of the Oakland Raiders prompted a major clearout with recently retired players Jason Witten and Anthony 'Booger' McFarland picked to join main man Joe Tessitore.

We can only hope Witten proves to be half as perceptive as his former Dallas teammate Tony Romo has been for CBS - the former quarterback often correctly predicts which play is coming from the way the players are lined up.

Let's hope they pick up the broadcasting protocol faster than former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians who said on air last week: "Saw the tight end, backside, wide-ass open and got it to him." Lovely image.
