    Year after year, we continue to get disrespected and get passed over for MNF while teams like the Oakland Raiders and Arizona Cardinals get their time in the limelight.

    It's complete and utter BS, and I for one, am not going to take it any more!!!

    We had better get one this year or there will be hell to pay!

    NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!!!!

    Yes there would be disappointment but I would not hold a one man riot in downtown Auckland.

    IMHO, I think the Sunday Night Footballl game has more prestige, now... Better announcers anyway....

    Between Thursday, Sunday and Monday night, I predict we get two this year...:hmmm:

    Can we have more poll choices than torch the city & I don't care?

    Sorry, I'm not from L.A. - Rioting just doesn't appeal to me. :bat:

    I voted for rioting because it's just good clean fun. But on the other hand why would you burn the city? The city has nothing to do whether or not ESPN gives us a MNF game.

    I'd be upset, but realistically until we have a winning season I'd doubt they'd consider us. Maybe a game against the Tacks, but that's still unlikely.

    Look, according to our place as the team with the 18th selection in the draft, that means only 14 teams are better than us (32-18=14). So, we're the 15th best team in the league, at least based on draft position. Now, if there are 16 weeks with a Monday night game, that means there are 32 opportunities for a team to participate in a Monday night game. Of course, each of the 32 NFL teams are not going to get to play on Monday night so some teams are repeat participaters. Nevertheless, if winning percentage has any bearing on the selection of participants, wouldn't it seem to reason that the 15th best team might "squeeze" into the lineup of 32 participants? There is no excuse whatsoever if we do not get a Monday night appearance this year.

    I think it was great because Gumbel wasn't doing the game.
