I'm not jealuos of him, if Holly Sonders is with him because of his "good looks" and "great personality", then she must be a sandwich short of a picnic.


No, I really don't.  What talking head on any program does not come across as a bit of a know-it-all, with a bit of an attitude?  That's why they are hired, to provide opinions and to create discussions about topics, be it politics or golf.

 

I have never heard the term "maleast" so I don't have an opinion on that.

 

So, if Holly is with him, she must be stupid, right?  Sure thing, and all those girls who you didn't pick up at the bar were all lesbians, too.

 

Look, I don't care whether he is gone from the Golf Channel or not.  There are plenty of other people who could fill his chair. Maybe they will do a better job than him. But to be all worked up because a pretty girl decides to go out with him seem just a little odd.

There is a BIG difference between someone being confident in their viewpoints and someone that acts like the words coming out of their mouth are divine.  Erik is the latter. 

 

As for the show, I think they made a bad call on the content.  They program it as if once-a-month viewers are the norm, who will surf in and be happy they are discussing Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods and Tiger Woods.  Gary is knowledgeable and likeable, but it's not that they don't have some good segments and good interviews - it's just not for the knowledgeable golf fan.  For example, they had a poll last week wanting to know whether fans that Tiger would make the cut or not ... please.

the show is much better without Erik, now get rid of HOlly, plus less Tiger Woods discussion is a big improvement.   Paul Goydos did a good job.   thanks    Sam

I liked EK's "fire" about sports; why do we want all guys to be Casper Milquetoast?  Did I agree with EK all of the time?  No.  Also, why is he gone and not Holly?  If his behavior was a problem, does it not take two to tango?  I may be old, but I think that has not changed!   Golf Channel loves Bill Clinton & has him on at every opportunity... is EK worse than BIll?  Is EK worse than TIger?   I'm just saying...      e5_innocent.gif  most folks are not wearing halos...

I like the new format of rotating co-host. I have no opinion about Erik, I've done worse than trying to pick up ladies in the office so I won't toss stones.

I doubt any of us are wearing halos, but if Clinton and Tiger can't keep it in their pants, they only make more money for Big Media.  Whereas, if Erik can't keep it in his pants, he could cost NBC/Golf Channel an expensive lawsuit and lost advertisers/viewers.  That's the difference. 

 

The Golf Channel's mistake was deciding to sign a host with "character issues" after ESPN dumped him.  That's like a football team that brings in some player with 'character issues' hoping that a new city/new team will magically change their behavior and focus.  How often does that work out?

So I just googled Holly Sonders and discovered the worst news in the history of the world.... She is engaged to Eric Kuselias?!! AKA the guy who couldnt hack it on Morning Drive? YOUVE GOT TO BE KIDDING!?? Guy is a grade A TOOL!! Not to mention he is 42 and she is 25.  The world is a terrible place sometimes.

Meh, just now learning that? They've been dating since he joined the morning show, like in Dec. 2011

 

I totally agree, EK is a complete dirt bag. His wife (ex) divorced him because he cheated on her. He got kicked out of ESPN because he insulted a female employee.

 

Holly Sonders knows this, and still with him.

 

She's pretty, but pretty dumb. Typical dingy hot chick with no brains.

post #99 of 114

Wow I had no idea... How can she deal with all his BS and his past?? Is she nuts.  No way that engagement can last.  The guy has two kids to boot!  She can do way better.

Meh... very typical of hot women. And then they all complain about their "guy" treating them like crap! Women are strange that way. Nice guys finish last. LOL

Morning Drive

I noticed that Morning Drive is not scheduled to be shown either this week or next week.

 

I'm almost certain that I saw it being shown last week. 

 

Has Morning Drive been cancelled?

 

Or is it just on a temporary holiday break?

 

I didn't see any explanation at the Golf Channel. 

 

Does anyone know anything about this?

post #102 of 114
Per Gary Williams' Twitter account, they're just on a break for the rest of 2012.

They mentioned being away for the holiday's during the last shows as well . Hasn't been much to talk about other than the long putter thing. The other GC talk shows are winding down as well .

post #104 of 114

I wish the golf channel would go back to showing some of the classic matches (Shell's Wonderful World) etc. Show some final rounds of majors. I don't need to see any more of the "Big Break". I would rather watch Bobby Jones play than listen to the guys on Morning Drive.

post #105 of 114

Watched the new and improved Morning Drive yesterday.  No problems looking at Holly Sonders.

 

But can't tolerate Gary Williams whiney voice. The guy knows his stuff - but the voice.......tough to listen to.

 

I like Charlie Reimer - not sure how Ahmad Rashad is going to help the show.   Two hours a day 7 days a week. Guess they'll have enough viewers to keep it running....trying to emulate NFL studio shows (NFLN/ESPN).

 

Good luck.

So far I'm not liking the new format and studio set-up. It looks and feels too similar to Golf Central. Maybe it will get better with time but it seems forced with the destination segment and some of the other stuff. Matt Ginella is an oaf. The smaller, looser Mike and Mike style worked better than the GMA thing they're trying to pull off.
