Default Two MNF games?

NEW YORK -- NFL owners may be asked to consider the possibility of two Monday night games each week to avoid the recurring problem of meaningless late-season games in the league's showcase telecast.



Commissioner Paul Tagliabue floated the idea in the second of a two-part interview aired Thursday night on HBO's "Inside the NFL."



"We'd like to look to see if we could put more than one game in the prime-time window," he said. "The one that is more attractive would be telecast nationally; the other could be telecast regionally."



The Monday night schedule is released in early spring. Teams with winning records the previous year normally play in the majority of the prime-time games.



But salary-cap induced parity has led to drastic annual fluctuations. If this season ended now, nine of last season's 12 playoff teams would miss the postseason, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders, who played in the Super Bowl.



So, ABC has been asking the league for the flexibility to switch a Sunday game to Monday late in a season to avoid a meaningless matchup. Fox and CBS, which have the contracts for Sunday games, have resisted, suggesting that they would lose viewers if there was a late switch that took an attractive matchup from their schedule.



Tagliabue said a late switch also would inconvenience fans with tickets for a game. His alternative would be the two games.



That would have to be approved by the networks and the owners, perhaps at league meetings in March. He did not say what financial arrangements would be involved, although ABC would have to make a financial concession to the network that loses a Sunday game.



Last year, the owners discussed the possibility of switching Sunday and Monday night games. Because of opposition from Fox and CBS, no vote was taken.

Well this is pretty stupid. This won't happen. I can't see the NFL allowing this. And ABC should stop bitching. Who cares if there are some weak matchups once and awhile. Its not like it happens alot. You can't just more games around during the season. It makes no sense. And what do Fox, and CBS have to do with the Sunday night games when their shown on ESPN? But anyways what do you guys think of this?

I don't like it, not at all.

I'm sure this won't happen, at least I hope it doesn't.

Yeah I was listening to that idea the other day on around the horn. I could see the point in not wanting to have a non meaningful game on tv, but if that's the case then just schedule the best games. I mean have the nfl set up seattle vs st. louis one week, green bay vs minnesota the next for monday night. Every week you have a schedule, take the best looking game and have that on Monday. Granted you never know if a team is going to have a surprising flop the next season, i.e. oakland, tampa bay and atlanta this year but it's part of the risk.

Fact is, having two monday night games imo, would deminish the excitement of waiting for that last football game of the week, but those are just my two cents.

I don't really care one way or the other. I watch whatever game is on anyway.
