I always thought breaking the back of cable or dish services would lead to a cheaper a la carte. It just means you have to subscribe to too much to ever break even. They farked us once again.

As long as there is no Booger, I'm ambivalent to who the broadcasters are.

Booger McFarland, Shooter McGavin, and Adam Gase - your 2023 MNF team.

Wait? ESPN was HAPPY with that announcing team? Wow. They are in worse shape than I thought.

I enjoyed the Manning cast, sometimes the game was secondary depending who was the guest

Amazon needs better announcers.  I watched two games there this season.  Both announcers were women.  The play-by-play announcer was obviously a professional sports broadcaster and did a perfectly cromulent job.  The other woman was three glasses of Chardonnay in by half time, was playing drinking games every time there was a punt, and wanted everyone to know how much her hubsand luffs how mugch she luffs football OMG GUYS!  Train wreck.

The new thing is to get all the individual services bundled into your internet or phone service at no extra charge, because you have no option but to pay for them.  I love you Lilly, but saying, "All of our customers get our best deal," is kinda half-ass if you only have one deal.

Levy is fine as a play by play guy, but Griese talks too much and Riddick doesn't talk at all.

I always assumed Riddick was just biding his time on TV waiting for his god-given right to be an NFL GM somewhere, because he's the smartest, bestest, most qualifiedest GM candidate out there....just ask him.

"This is Howardcosell" are the original three MNF words

Jeez, I remember Levy when he was doing the overnight sports news reads on WFAN back when it took WNBC's spot on the dial.  Small world.

Al Michaels doing play by play would be an upgrade, then. I've seen in a few places that they're looking to bring in Troy Aikman as the color commentator, which would not be an upgrade IMO. Half of his "contributions" now are repeating what Joe Buck just said, then adding on Maddenspeak.
