Well, that’s about as much baseball analysis as you’ll ever hear from John Madden.

The Hall of Fame NFL head coach and legendary color commentator isn’t impressed with Will Ferrell’s recent Spring Training appearances. Ferrell played all nine positions in five different games earlier this week, flying to all his games by helicopter in the MLB Cactus League in Arizona.

Madden gave his thoughts on KCBS Morning Newswatch the day of Ferrell’s tour, saying it made a mockery of the game and was disrespectful to baseball players.

“I hate it,” Madden said of the stunt … “That’s a lack of respect for the game and for what players have to do to get where they are.”

Hopefully Madden wasn’t aware at the time of his comments that the tour was for charity. The proceeds from Ferrell’s visits will aid multiple cancer awareness and research foundations.
