    I was wondering the same thing. I checked with ESPN website and this is the blurb:

    Around the Horn, currently moderated by ESPN's Tony Reali, is a fast paced, 30-minute program featuring the unbridled wit and wisdom of some of the country's leading sports columnists, from such newspapers as the Boston Globe, Chicago Sun-Times, Dallas Morning News, Denver Post and Los Angeles Times.

    Looks like Max may be holding out for a better deal?

    He's also been missing from ESPN's Friday Night Fights for the past few weeks........

    Well I sure hope ESPN gets Max back ASAP. When I first started watching Around the Horn, I thought it took a huge backseat to PTI. But now I find it the more entertaining show by far. The little arguments between Woody, Jay, and Max always lead to some good laughs. Stat Boy just doesn't have the chemistry with these guys! Who knows...maybe he will grow on me.

    Well I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for Kellerman to return. His contract with ESPN ran out and the network would not match FoxSports' offer. There was a brief blub about it in USAToday

    Man, that sucks. I've been waiting for him to get back, Stat Boy is just blech. Since I guess he's never coming back, they should have one of the panelists be the moderator each day, that'd be a blast.

    Unless the ratings are sky-high and makes ESPN a ton of money (which I doubt), I don't think the show will last much longer now that Max is gone from ESPN.

    The show has lost its edge a bit. Give Tony a chance. I'm happy for Kellerman getting a better gig. Look forward to seeing him in the future.

    I don't like Stat Boy, but Kellerman was unbearably obnoxious. I won't miss him. I'm sure Stat Boy is just filling in until they can hire someone else to do it full time.
