Football on Monday Night, the ESPN version that is not worthy of the name of the former ABC Series, has many things wrong with it. It no longer feels like the big game it used to. It carries the weight of the old Sunday Night Football (ESPN version) which is “one game too many.” It starts late, it’s cluttered with crap stats all over the screen, and it’s just no longer necessary.
Last night, the self-indulgence went too far. Chris Berman talking to politcal candidates. I shut it off. I want football. I don’t want anything but football. When will ESPN figure it out.
