ESPN leaves O.J. Simpson out of Monday Night Football tribute

SHARE ESPN leaves O.J. Simpson out of Monday Night Football tribute

In honor of the 45th anniversary of “Monday Night Football,” ESPN put together a cool gif of all the announcers who have contributed to the show. Dandy Don, Dennis Miller, Dan Dierdorf, even Fred “The Hammer” Williamson—they had ’em all. Except for one: O.J. Simpson.

Watch Simpson talk about Walter Payton [3:58 mark] on MNF in 1985, just before the Bears running back broke Simpson’s record for consecutive 100-yard games.

Simpson is currently serving 9 to 33 years in a Las Vegas prison for a 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery conviction. A recent appeal was denied.
