NFL Exploring Possibility Of Flexing Games For Monday Night Football

Recommended Posts

I would hope they have a minimum couple week notice.    Would suck making hotel and plane reservations to leave early Monday and then have your game switched to Monday.

ESPN complained and the broadcasts were a joke, starting with the Boogermobile.
ESPN blames it on the match-ups, the league blamed it on them for the 2nd rate booth team they assigned to those poor match ups.
That's why Disney offered to put it on ABC and get a real team of announcers to call the games.
TNF brought in Buck/Aikman to legitimize those games and MNF will have to do the same thing.

More here from The Guardian

"It often feels like the show’s producers are more interested in their carefully choreographed packages and graphics than the actual game unfolding on the field. No other broadcast misses a play as consistently as Monday Night Football, continuing to prove that there is nothing in media or entertainment that cannot be ruined by more money and time. Spare us dancing 3D models and show us what Patrick Mahomes is doing at the line of scrimmage "

For the amount they paid, they should. The NFL is probably taking it more seriously due to Disney's muscle behind them.
