    “It’s bad for football,” Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden said on ESPN during postgame coverage. “There’s going to be some fines, there’s going be some stringent discipline. Let’s just hope a lot of these men are able to get up tomorrow morning and move on with life. Some of this stuff got out of hand tonight. It’s very disgusting and disturbing.” Yahoo Sports’ Pat Forde was blunt in his assessment of the game while giving credit to the MNF team for their critical coverage of the violence. It was, however, a good night for ESPN. Sean McDonough minced no...
  • Fans Bail on ‘Monday Night Football’ As Ratings for Chiefs-Broncos Crash

    No matter who dresses up as what at the NFL offices in New York, it’s not likely that their Halloween costume will scare Commissioner Roger Goodell more, than the ratings for Monday Night Football. According to Deadline Hollywood, “With a 7.2 in metered market results, last night’s MNF was down 9% from last week’s Philadelphia Eagles’ 34-24 triumph over the Washington Redskins. “While not the season low of the October 16 battle between the Tennessee Titans and the Indianapolis Colts, last night’s Chiefs vs. Broncos match-up is very close to the previous MNF season low of the October 9 Minnesota...

    Star-Telegram ^ | September 25, 2017 | Clarence E. Hill Jr.
    The Dallas Cowboys plan to protest during the national anthem before Monday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals, per multiple sources. Nothing has been firmed up and they will likely come to some decision in the locker room. It may not be a coordinated effort. It may just be a few individuals. One player said, “We have to do something.” Said another, “It’s not going to be business as usual. He crossed a line. Something will be done...”  The majority of the NFL’s owners and/or teams issued statements in response to Trump’s comments over the weekend. The Cowboys and owner Jerry...

    Of the hundreds of qualified sports reporters and former players they could have chosen from, ESPN decided to impose their latest example of diversity in action with Sergio Dipp, one of their Desportes reporters, who got his shot on the sideline during the Chargers-Broncos Monday Night Football broadcast, and instead of talking about the game, he decided to highlight... diversity.
  • Hank Williams Jr.'s iconic song returning to Monday Night Football

    06/05/2017 8:18:06 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 50 replies ^ | 06-05-2017 | Staff
    Hank Williams Jr. will be bringing his rowdy friends back to ESPN on Monday nights this fall. Williams will debut a new version of "All My Rowdy Friends," featuring its "Are you ready for some football?" catchphrase, before the first Monday night game of the season, between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis on Sept. 11. ESPN pulled the song midseason in 2011, following controversial comments made by Williams on Fox News that compared then-President Barack Obama golfing with then-Rep. House Speaker John Boehner to a meeting of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Adolf Hitler. Williams...

    There’s no denying that the numerous #BoycottNFL online campaigns and fan outrage aimed at the National Anthem protests in the NFL have taken a toll in terms of viewership... now the league is on pace for its lowest ratings in years... Overall, MNF‘s (Monday Night Football's) ratings are down a whopping 19% this year
  • Did the NFL punish ESPN with bad 'Monday Night Football' games?

    The Washington Post ^ | 10 hrs ago | Matt Bonesteel
    It was reported that ESPN’s lackluster upcoming slate of Monday Night games was believed to be retribution for Bill Simmons and Olbermann’s criticism of the league and Goodell. To that end, we’re hearing there are some ESPN folks who think the league denied a request for a Monday Night Football matchup featuring the Cowboys against a specific opponent due to Simmons and Olbermann’s vocal criticism this past year. ESPN does have one Cowboys game on this year’s schedule but comes late in the season and on the road versus a Redskins team that went 4-12 last season.

  • The Officials Blew it Monday Night in the Colts Game

    The officials blew the game big time in the fourth quarter of the Colts versus Eagles game, most notably on a huge non-call of defensive holding. You never want to be those fans. You never want to be those fans that blame the officiating for the loss. Let's face it: every fanbase thinks that their team were the victims of some cheap calls that hurt them. Every fanbase is the same, and each week is no different. That's why I generally try to stay away from criticizing the officials too much. Tonight, however, is different. Tonight, whether you're a Colts...
  • What's Chris Christie Doing with Jerry Jones?

    I was just watching Monday Night Football. As they were helping the injured Tony Romo off the field (no mo Romo), they treated us to a shot of the owners suite and sitting next to Cowboy's owner Jerry Jones was New Jersey lard a$$ Chris Christie. Of course, Christie was immediately looking up at himself on the TV screen above once he realized the photo op was taking place. Anyone else cath that? It seemed a bit odd that just a few days ago he was bragging about how the Giants and the jets "belong to NJ" - and there...

    Tim Tebow just pointed out a very devilish fact ... tonight's NFL matchup is the 666th Monday Night Football game ... and it just so happens, Tim's team is playing in the game. As the NY Jets prepare for battle with the Houston Texans ... Tebow just tweeted, "Looking forward to giving God all the glory in tonight's 666th Monday Night Football game. Romans 8:37-39." Before you head to Google, here's the bible quote Tim referenced: "No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life,...

    Ron Jaworski is out at "Monday Night Football." ESPN announced Wednesday that the analyst would be removed from the network's signature broadcast beginning in August. Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden will operate as a two-man booth. Jaworski will remain at the network and appear on various programs, including "Countdown" and "Matchup." < -- SNIP -- > This paragraph, from a December article in The New Yorker about Gruden, was a perfect microcosm of Jaws' time in the booth: When it was Jaworski's turn, he issued a stern proclamation. "Call me crazy, but I'm really excited for Tyler Palko tonight," he...

    Old-time football players like to say they would’ve played for free in the parking lot, such was their love for the game. It might be the hyperbole of men who watched too many grainy Knute Rockne clips, but you want to believe that they believe it. You want to believe that they were so tough and so committed to the game that they would’ve sacrificed the skin on their elbows to make a tackle near the third parking stall on the left. You want to believe in someone who loved the raw violence of a sport so much that he...

    Chris Kluwe often likes to have fun on his Twitter page but after Vikings players got a look at the field conditions at TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday during their walk-through the punter turned very serious in a series of posts. Kluwe termed the field that is scheduled to play host to Monday night's game against the Bears as "unplayable." Here are Kluwe's tweets regarding a field that has no heating coils in it: "Serious time - All respect to the people that cleared the field and got it ready, you did an amazing job. That being said, it's unplayable....

    On a commercial break from Monday Night Football, there was a commercial for NFL's Play 60, where they promote kids to play outdoors for 60 minutes.In the commercial, Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints is set to throw a pass on the White House lawn with children running in slow motion, with the White House in the background.At first thought, I was waiting for Drew to pass to one of the kids. Then I thought he might sling that sucker through the White House window hopefully getting Obama in back of the head.Then Obama pops up in the scene...

    WASHINGTON - The Marines plan to buy fewer bomb-resistant vehicles than planned despite pressure from lawmakers who are determined to spend billions of dollars on the vehicles. ADVERTISEMENT The Marine Corps' requirement for mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicles would drop from the planned 3,700 to about 2,400, The Associated Press has learned. The Marines would not comment on the decision, but defense officials confirmed the cut. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision has not been announced. About a month ago, Marine Commandant Gen. T. James Conway signaled the possibility of a new examination of the commitment to the...
