Are you ready for some 'Monday Night Football' on ESPN?

NEW YORK – "Monday Night Football," a television institution that over 35 years has helped transform the NFL into a prime-time ratings draw, is leaving ABC and moving to ESPN beginning with the 2006 season.

The new broadcast deal also brings the NFL to NBC for the first time in six years. The network gets the Sunday night package – which the league now considers its marquee television showcase – and will employ a flexible scheduling model.

Um... OK. So you now need basic cable to get Monday Night Football (starting next season). That makes a lot of sense. Yea. It sounds like your local station will still show in-market games. If you live in Ohio and love the Raiders, well, you are out of luck. Unless of course you pay for basic cable and get ESPN. I don't think the move makes sense, but I don't work for Disney.
