*** This was arguably exceeded when Plaschke declared that the 2016 NLCS between the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers was over after the Dodgers went up 2 games to 1. After the Cubs rallied to win the series in six games, Reali eliminated Plaschke from the show during the '''opening intro''' not once, but ''twice'', and when Plaschke appeared the day after the Cubs won the World Series, he muted Plaschke to a score of -108 (one for each year the Cubs had waited in-between titles) just before the day's eliminations were to occur. '''Ouch.'''

* FollowTheLeader: When Max Kellerman left for Fox Sports, ''ATH'' panelist Michael Holley and "Disembodied Voice" announcer Bill Wolff joined him as they starred in a short-lived ''ATH'' clone called ''I, Max'', in which Kellerman and Holley debated topics ''ATH''-style with Wolff scoring their debates in rounds à la boxing. It lasted just a few months.

* EliminatedFromTheRace: After Buy or Sell and Round 3, the lowest-scoring player is cut with a lightning-bolt effect. With the show's format change, two panelists are now eliminated at the end of Buy or Sell.



* FanDisservice: When the MLB brought in a dress code for reporters banning tank tops, flip flops and short skirts ''Woody Paige'' said he'd go to the first game wearing all three. He lost points for it.
* FlippingTheBird: After Paige used his fingers to count how many technicals Blake Griffin had (and lost points and the lead because his thumb stuck out, resulting in 17 instead of 16,) Reali eliminated him, but not before Woody showed another 16 fingers, with the last one being the middle finger.

* TooSoon: [[invoked]] Sensitive topics, such as deaths, arrests or possible racial issues, are sometimes discussed without any scoring, loud voices, or interrupting other panelists. To drive the point home, Reali will often close the topic by pointing out "[[LampshadeHanging not a lot of scoring that round]]" before moving on. The Out of Bounds segment is usually reserved for this material. One notable occurrence was the Freeh report on the Jerry Sandusky-Joe Paterno-Penn State scandal. Entering Buy Or Sell, ''nobody'' had a point, and barely anyone spoke over the other (sans Reali).

Formerly, right before the second commercial, the player with the lowest score is eliminated, then again before the next commercial, before the final two engage in a "showdown" to determine the day's winner, who receives a solo spot to rant about or praise whatever they feel like for 30 seconds. In 2015, the show changed its structure to match that of PTI, removing the third segment and now eliminating two panelists before the second commercial break.

The show's intro was also changed from a format that the above page quote parodies to Reali simply announcing the panelists.

''Around the Horn'' is a sports discussion show on Creator/{{ESPN}}, which debuted in 2002 and is still ongoing. The premise is simple -- four sportswriters with NoIndoorVoice debate about current sport topics and are scored on their arguments. The moderator is ''[[Series/PardonTheInterruption Pardon the Interruption]]''[='=]s Tony "Stat Boy" Reali (formerly Max Kellerman), who has ultimate power over the panelists' scores and the almighty mute button. Points are (in theory) awarded for good arguments, jokes and commentary, and taken away for contradictory or incomprehensible arguments (among other things), which can also earn a 10-second mute. In practice, however, it usually all devolves pretty quickly. Right before the second commercial, the player with the lowest score is eliminated, then again before the next commercial, before the final two engage in a "showdown" to determine the day's winner, who receives a solo spot to rant about or praise whatever they feel like for 30 seconds.

** Tim Cowlishaw gets this treatment for being the only panelist who is an an avid fan of hockey, {{NASCAR}}, and who was an outspoken supporter of the BCS. Frequently {{lampshade|Hanging}}d: "Cowlishaw's not here, so let's talk hockey" and "the Bowl Cowlishaw Series", for example. In one segment, Reali kept taking points away from Cowlishaw because he couldn't give clear answers (i.e. being on the fence regarding an issue instead of taking a side like the others did). During the episode where Woody was hosting, he changed the rule - the one with the ''highest'' score would be eliminated, and it was Cowlishaw.
