    I was watching a old Cowboys game from 1986 and noticed that Jimmy the Greek was not in the studio with Brent musberger and Irv Cross. Instead it was Dick Butkus. Where was the greek in the 86 season?

    Then I watched another Cowboys game from 1987 and I don't see Jimmy the Greek in the studio during halftime.

    So I guess I;m curious because Jimmy the Greek was fired until January of 1988 so was wondering why he was missing in 1986 and 1987?

    Thanks a lot

    I don't remember him in the studio during halftime of games, only pre-game to make his predictions. What could he possibly predict at halftime?

    Ok so he was just mainly on the pregame show? I always thought he was with Brent and Irv in the studio during halftime.

    Ok so it sounds like he was in either the pregame or postgame show not halftime.


    Thanks

    I'll go with the proverbial 'I miss those days' post, but I do.

    It wasnt a bunch of wannabe comedians yuckin it up 2/3rds of the show laughing at jokes that arent funny.
