Tony Gonzalez May Become Analyst – Why Not Hire a Sports Fan Instead?

On Sunday evening following the Atlanta Falcons loss to the Super Bowl bound San Francisco 49ers, ESPN reported that 13-Time Pro-Bowl Tight End Tony Gonzalez likely had played his last game.  Gonzalez went onto say that he was 95% sure that Sunday was his last game in an NFL uniform.

Win or lose the Super Bowl will be the final game in a storied 17 year career for 12-Time Pro Bowl Linebacker Ray Lewis as his Baltimore Ravens take the field on February 3rd in New Orleans.  According to a published report Lewis is close to signing a multi-year deal with ESPN.

Former professional players who have gone on to have very good careers as analysts include Tim McCarver (MLB on FOX), Phil Simms (NFL on CBS) and Mark Jackson (NBA on ABC).

The moods of die-hard sports fans shift daily with each win and each gut wrenching loss.  Across the country sports debates in many cities rage on.

Imagine if one of the major professional sports worked with their television networks partners and conducted a nationwide search to fill a sports analyst position with that everyday sports fan….only his/her family, friends and co-workers know his/her name.

Wouldn’t that be giving the game back to the people who make it live on each and every year?  THE TRUE SPORTS FAN.
