ESPN Blows It on MNF

I'm gonna write up a whole post about this in the Digital Revolution theme, but for now, let me just say that I watched a few minutes of last night's Pitt vs. Jacksonville game -- you know, the MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL for 2006 version -- and I'm just appalled at how badly ESPN has dropped the ball. How hard could it be to find some announcers with some sort of clue and some sort of personality in the same vein as Madden and Summerall? And really, more to the point, how hard could it possibly be to have hyped ESPN's Monday Night Football so that it could capture some of the relevance and momentum of ABC's long, long MNF program. MNF on ESPN could have legitimized that network like nothing before it ever could. Fire that producer and get out of the Revolution's way, ESPN.

Answer: Very hard! But I see your point. I miss Madden and Al Michaels on ABC.

No hard at all, the first Monday this season had a doubleheader. The "B" team was FAR superior to the "A" team. Who is the idiot over at ESPN that green-lighted Theisman and Kornheiser, they should be fired too.
