|BoDog Sportsbook & Casino™ officially posted odds today on whether or not Monday Night Football would respond to widespread criticism of new sideline reporter Lisa Guerrero by firing her before the start of the 2004 season.|
“Everybody has seen the two Monday Night Football telecasts this season,” said Rob Gillespie, President of BoDog Sportsbook & Casino. “And it’s very obvious that she’s not in the same class as her predecessors Melissa Stark or Lesley Visser.”
Newspaper columnists and football fans across the United States have been very vocal in the last few days about the perceived incompetence of Guerrero.
“Visser came from a strong reporting background, first in print and then as a broadcaster,” said Gillespie. “And when Stark replaced her, it was obvious she knew her football. The same can’t be said about Guerrero’s first two appearances.”
According to BoDog's oddsmakers, Guerrero is unlikely to return to the sidelines for Monday Night Football next season. The “No” option on her returning is listed at (-140), meaning players would have to risk $140 to win $100.
“We had to take into consideration public sentiment,” said Gillespie. “And whether it’s a newspaper columnist in Denver or Joe Average at the local sports bar, the public seems to think she needs to go.”
The underdog is the “Yes” option. Wagering on the “Yes” option would return $100 for every $100 wagered.
“They probably won’t fire her mid-season,” said Gillespie. “But it’s not unlikely that they’d bring in another reporter for next year.
Will Lisa Guerrero be the MNF sideline reporter in 2004?
