    Cap will be relatively flat in '12 and '13. Bad time for FAs. You want to be a FA in '14, when network money will make cap skyrocket.

    ESPN and the NFL announced an eight-year rights extension on Thursday that will keep Monday Night Football on ESPN through 2021 and will increase the number of NFL-related shows on the network significantly.

    The agreement, which begins in 2014 at the end of the current deal, also includes more broadband rights for ESPN.com and ESPN mobile platforms, increased international rights and the option to carry a wild-card playoff game on ESPN if the NFL decides to.

    As part of new ESPN-NFL deal, Sunday NFL Countdown will start one hour earlier at 10 am ET; NFL Live will be one hour each weekday, 4-5 ET.

    Good. Man ESPN has done some excellent things in recent days. Kicked Rome to ESPN2 along the same lines with the god awful sportsnation. His radio show is okay, but cannot stand his tv show.

    Guess who is going to be footing the bill. Consumers as usual.

    How so? I would think advertisers will be footing the bill. Monday Night Football is always one of the most watched shows of the week.

    If companies are spending more on advertising, do you really think the CEO is taking a cut to make up profits?

    Its a trickle down effect.
