Why in the hell did they screw with Monday Night Football?
MNF is a sacred institution, but now it's been relegated to second-class, cable-only status, with non-marquee matchups.

And the announcer crew. Joe "I can't shut my yapper" Theisman, Tony "worse than Dennis Miller" Kornheiser," and Mike "zzzzzzzzzzz" Tirico.

Pisses me off.

1. MNF is exactly my age...
As a birthday gift my mom bought my dad a MNF game that you could play along with the game. We still played it occasionally. It saddens me that it's not an ABC thing anymore, although I don't miss Madden. :( It died at the young age of 36.

Good coach? Yes

Good announcer? Heck no! Sorry :hi: We can still be friends, right?

9. was it the MNF card game?
If so, I have that. Haven't played it in a while, but we used to adapt it for all the college games on Saturday afternoon :)

I swear I saw Madden doing his thing during a game last night. :shrug:

10. Your right
The "Marquee" matchup for the week in the NFL is now on NBC on Sunday nights, rather than on Monday nights.

Welcome to the 21st century. You have cable and the internet to thank.

13. I don't miss Madden or Michaels.
And I don't like the current crew.
I do miss Cosell.
