    Ed Sherman, of the Chicago Tribune, reports ABC, who lost Monday Night Football broadcast rights to ESPN, is planning on bringing back former broadcasters Frank Gifford and Don Meredith for the final Monday broadcast. It will be a retrospective of the series' 36 years on ABC, featuring segments of Howard Cosell, various celebrity interviews, and other features.

    Should be fun, specially since Madden won't be broadcasting for a change.

    I remember when MNF was a big thing, before the Internet, cable, satellite TV and all that stuff. I would stay up late to catch Howard Cosell showing the highlights of the games for the week. If you missed that you were screwed, Sportscenter was a pipe dream.

    Amen, as long as Madden disappers I'm for anything.

    I can believe it, it had to be better than sportscenter which I can barely watch anymore, it might have something to do with the arrogant jackasses on there. Though Chris Berman is funny on NFL primetime sometimes. But Stuart Scott is about as bad as they come.

    I think it is New England and the Jets on boxing day, of course the pregame show will have a retrospect of a Madden montage of every clip of him saying Brett Favre's name, 35-40 minutes long
