MNF moving to ESPN in 2006 & Sunday night football to NBC
 
NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL's "Monday Night Football," a staple on ABC for the past 35 seasons, will move to ESPN starting with the 2006 season.

And NBC is returning to the NFL after six years away by taking the Sunday night broadcast previously on ESPN.
The Monday night move from network TV to basic cable, hinted at continually by commissioner Paul Tagliabue, was confirmed Monday by two sources familiar with the deals who spoke to The Associated Press under condition of anonymity. The sources said the league is expected to get $1.1 billion over eight years from the network.

NBC will get the Sunday night package for $600 million over six years, according to the sources. The network will also get the Super Bowl in 2009 and 2012 as part of the deal, one of the sources said.

heck yeah.. NFL field pass will let you hear myron, bill, tunch, and craig, while watching the game.. except for that delay though.. you see the action, then about 10 seconds later, u hear them commentate it!! that gets alittle annoying, but its worth it !

Yeah its worth it. Today on ESPN radio, the poll was 68% in favor of Michaels and Madden(or anybody else if you heard the callins) to 32% for Joe T. and McGuire. Please ESPN listen to the fans. One mention by Dan P. was for Tony Kornheiser to do the booth cause he is knowledgeble enough to play by play, but is variety enough to take up dead air. Having missed the days of Tony on radio back in PIT I'm for the campaign.
