Yet another example of the hype machine that these guys have built themselves. Major TV network, major cable channel, major radio network, and a magazine. All for the sake of self-promotion.BuckeyeNation27 said:this is such bullshit. they put it on TV to get free publicity for their show. then they show it again on sportscenter, more free pub. then every other network picks it up. more free pub. you dont think ABC knew what they were doing?
LinkDungy: 'MNF' intro racially offensive
Reaction ranged from amusement to anger. Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy found it racially offensive. "To me that's the first thing I thought of as an African-American," Dungy said Wednesday.
"I think it's stereotypical in looking at the players, and on the heels of the Kobe Bryant incident I think it's very insensitive. I don't think that they would have had Bill Parcells or Andy Reid or one of the owners involved in that," he added, a reference to the coaches in the game.
buckeyegrad said:The primary issue eveyone is missing in this topic is why do we football fans put up with crap station promotions. I tune in to MNF to see the football game period, yet every week I have to see idiotic promos for shows I don't give a shit about, listen to Madden and Michaels talk football to morons like Jim Bulushi or George Lopez, and watch an inane music video.
If the FCC wants to sanction ABC, they should do it for ruining the MNF experience with cheap, idiotic interviews and stunts.
Why does everything in this world have to become a commerical.
