Monday night football will be on ESPN starting in 2006. Good lord.

I think ABC is probably getting sunday night football, but im not sure.

SO how long before ESPN secures the NBA finals as well?

I already knew this before ANY of you posted this, because I have ESPN, you see. I very nearly mind-raped you.

Pretty please? You'll be my favorite Piston fan who posts under the name "Kstat" for the next 10 minutes!

We really need that ESPN article to prepare us for the NFL Draft which is on ESPN... :-p

That looks familiar, but I'm talking about the one populated by naturallystoned and myself:

I forgot about Jermaniac (he's the one in the top-left, dressed like Robin) and his Titan-loving friends the first time around! Here's a recent photo!:

As far as ESPN taking over, the thing that bothers me is when they jumpstart their own controversies. Take for example, the Jermaine O'Neal "race" controversy. ESPN spent all day blowing his quote out of proportion on ESPN radio, Sportscenter, ESPN News, probably did it in Spanish on ESPN Deportes too. They pumped up this so called controversial statement by O'Neal so much that he had to come on to ESPN's NBA coverage that night to set the record straight.

ESPN often acts like tabloid media when they are the same network that works with the leagues to televise the games. It seems like they play both sides against the middle to get better ratings.

So now Sunday night games are on the network and MNF is on cable? I wonder if Madden will move to Sundays again?

NBC gets the Sunday night games, not ABC.
