I know.

The point of special events like MNF used to be is to not do them all the time and overexpose that event. Having 2 MNF games further waters down the event. Its the reason they dont have Olympic games every year.

Yeah I don't like the two MNF games. It sucks to be up until 1:00AM watching football.

I think the actual problem with MNF is that they have taken too much of the attention off the field and try to produce entertainment inside the booth.

I dont need to see the commentators... or hear about what their grandkids bought them for Christmas...ESPECIALLY at the expense of the game.

When I watch the Steelers in Super Bowl XL...with the Pittsburgh team of Hillgrove & Ilkin dubbed over the plays, I am reminded of the OLD MNF where they called the plays...made commentary...all while we WATCHED the game and not the jokers in the booth.

Halftime is for 1) commentators...2) snacks...3) pee breaks .....(and not in that order)
....the rest of the night is for the game.

Remember when you got three, maybe four "big" network channels and a couple of UHF channels on your TV? When you heard the Star Spangled Banner come on at midnight at one AM and then the test pattern buzzed until 6:00 AM? When you saw maybe one or two baseball games in a week's time on one local channel and the Game of the Week on Saturday after TWIB? College football on Saturday afternoons and the NFL on Sunday afternoons, and unless it was the Wide World of Sports or The Superstars, that was it.

At that time, NFL football in prime time on a Monday was a huge deal. Now it's more like just any other game, although the teams picked are supposedly better teams than average (what? No Lions?). SNF now seems to be the bigger draw, but with cable and satellite TV and hundreds of channels, the Internet, etc, we'll never see ratings like MNF used to garner.

hmmmm...

nobody started a thread for tonights game.

i guess we can chalk that up to the SF faithful promptly switching the chanel as soon as obama gave his kick off speech commemorating the hispanics in the nfl.

pretty good game so far. i have always liked the dolphins better but i guess i want the jets to win just to stick it to the patriots.

I bet it's the first time in NFL history that a team owner sang the national anthem.

And as far as Obama goes, if we're all Americans, than say it in frikkin' English.

That is all.
