Charles Barkley Claims he Turned Down Monday Night Football

Charles Barkley is one of the loudest mouths in the entire sports world, so naturally he would be a great guy to fill out a football broadcast? The NBA Hall of Famer recently claimed he was offered Monday Night Football, and that he turned it down. Barkley made the comments on the first episode of the Jim Brockmire podcast


โ€œI only comment on basketball. Like they offered me Monday Night Football,โ€ Barkley said during an appearance on the Jim Brockmire Podcast.

โ€œI says, โ€˜I like football, but I ainโ€™t going to be one of these jackasses to get on TV and act like he know about football.โ€™โ€

Charles would have been a definite wild card.

Steve Levy, Louis Riddick and Brian Griese are the new crew for Monday Night Football starting this upcoming season.
