ABC FUMBLES? So, as expected, Monday Night Football is moving to ESPN, but Sunday night isn't flipping back to ABC: it's going to downtrodden NBC in a $600M/6y deal, with, at last, scheduling flexibility for late-season games.

Does this mean that Sunday night will become the big game, and Monday night an afterthought? Which will get the NFL's priorities for the top games? Will Disney move Madden and Michaels to ESPN? Who will NBC get to host its games? It's been so, so long since NBC had football. (God help us if we hear "The kick is up . . . YES!, and it counts!")
