The End of an Era: Fox’s Decision to Discontinue the NFL’s Best Booth for Tom Brady

Fox valued IP over substance, demoting Greg Olsen for Tom Brady.
Olsen was part of one of the best booths in the league.

Fox favored the veteran Brady for the call in order to expand its intellectual property. Olsen was known for his sharp insights and his humor, and the pairing with Kevin Burkhardt was a hit.

Brady’s best asset, outside of his ability to read coverages, is his appearance, and Fox will likely capitalize on that.
It is disappointing for fans who were fans of the Burkhardt and Olsen combination.
