Don't go Larry. He was the highlight of the undercard last weekend.

I wish HBO would bring in Al Bernstein from Showtime to replace Merchant AND Kellerman...

HBO could replace Kellerman with a damned rock. There would be so many upsides to this.

I personally like Larry,but I don't have the perspective of regular HBO viewers.
But I fondly remember my first sight of Larry when I got a VHS copy of Leonard-Finch many moons ago.
He's always had the same presentational style, just less two minute gaps inbetween words...

Lets be real, Merchant has been adding very little over the last couple of years besides son-ing Floyd in the postfight. He is like a miserable old man at times, only speaking up to moan about something. I think Bernstein would be a great replacement, if he can put up with Lampley cutting acroos him every 5 seconds.

Larry proved in the Pac-Marquez 4 post-fight exactly why he's the best. He was up to the challenge of the moment and asked all the right questions. I only wish Manny Steward had been there too. It's the end of a great HBO lineup and era.

Hopefully the HBO executives will finally wake up and say, **** it, we don't care if that idiot Kellerman has photos of us in bras and panties being whipped by a dominatrix in a bar in Greenwich Village at four in the morning, let's get a real replacement for Larry!

I liked RJJ..... thought he did a good job.....Lamply is not my Fav, but I think he has more good days then bad...... I would enjoy a line up of RJJ, Bernstein and lamply. Would be a good mix IMO

IMO, HBO needs to shake it all up
