Which is better?

PTI - Funnier, argumentative format, generally more respected opinions, more topics, less time per topic

Around The Horn - Point scoring format, more varied opinions, less topics, spend more time per topic

They are the same thing to me, except instead of 2 people, around the horn has what? 4 plus a point giver

PTI by far. I watch Around The Horn if I'm bored before PTI.

PTI for sure. Talk about way more subjects and i like Tony and Wilbon better. I tend to agree with one of them on every subject. Both good shows though.

I like Around the Horn better when Woody Paige is on, but I vote PTI because Mariotti is insufferable.

Around the Horn is far more entertaining - it has more personalities and more varied opinions - while PTI is generally more informative and covers far more topics.

I watch both daily - they both present different aspects of the popular topics in sports.

Agreed. He's arrogant and annoys the crap outta me. Woody Paige is hilarious.

I look forward to Around the Horn more.. Woody Paige is hilarious, and Jay Mariotti is always the pessimist.

I give it a slight nudge over PTI, but I like them both.

Around the Horn for the hilarity

PTI for legit points

Wilbon and Kornheiser don't know jack about college football, which always bugs me.

Around the Horn is obnoxious. Half the guests are blowhards. Jackie Mcmullan, whenever she is on, makes the show unwatchable. Joe Mariotti got tossed on his ass from the Sun Times, he doesn't even write for a paper anymore, don't know why he is even still on the show.

I'd much rather watch PTI, and although Kornheiser is annoying at times he is good at what he does. Plus Wilbon, being from Chicago, actually talks about the midwest and Chicago sports, which usually is ignored on ESPN.

PTI FTW

wilbon+kornheiser are better than most of the guys on ATH (i pretty much only like woody, tim cowlishaw & michael smith...if mariotti is on i refuse to watch and everyone else is just meh)

ATH format sucks...points are completely arbitrary and for some reason mariotti gets like 6 points every time he repeats what the previous guy said or says something completely obvious

Agreed, I think the points thing is kinda stupid myself and for some reason Reali annoys me on Around the Horn but not PTI.

pti actually makes sense, whereas around the horn is just blab most of the time

PTI for sure, they actaully discuss topics in detail and then give their interpretation, plus odd makers and over/under is funny to see them fight with each other

Anyone notice how Marriotti like stares into the camera like he's modeling or something. It's hilarious. That guy is so arrogant it makes it hard to watch. But ya i like how light hearted pti is. All the segments where they get dressed up like good cop bad cop, and role playing. I laugh like every episode at something.

I like ATH better, I can't watch PTI because Michael Wilbon irritates me for some reason.

PTI - I actually wish they would expand it to an hour and double the time limits of each subject. They're just getting started IMO when that stupid bell goes off.

I just can't get into ATH. It gives me a headache.

PTI, as the host of Around the horn is the biggest tool ever. I can't even watch that show cause of that ****er.

i read on another forum that tony realli is only 5"6 and thats pushing it lol (serious)

He is taller that that!

Anyways.

Horn is much better, but would be supreme if they ****ed off Bill "I talk at 1000 words a minute and all 100 words are ****ing boring and wrong" Plaschke

The guy is a MOFO dickwad in the extreme

I ****ing hate the prick

I hate how Wilbon always pulls the race card

I hate how Tony says "Hes my boy so i am going to defend him"

For ****s sake...he is not your "boooooooooy"....he is prob some douche who ****ed up and needs to be criticised.

woody paige gets no respect on that show. He's the funniest guest.

But I have to go with PTI.

Around the horn is a little bit more entertaining (mostly because of Woody), but PTI seems more intuectal and informative about the topics. I like both though, so I'll have it on when I'm not in class.

I like Around the Horn because it is more entertaining and can be pretty funny at times, Woody Paige is the man. If you are just looking for straight information (and more of it) PTI is definitely the better of the two. If I could only watch one of the shows it would be ATH as long as Paige is on.
