I don't know if i should put this here or in the Football folder.
John Madden signed with Monday Night Football today. They got rid of Miller, Fouts and Dickerson. Does anyone see this as hurting the WWF's fanbase, ratings wise, when football rolls back around? Without WCW around, MNF is pretty much the main competition for the 18-34 group the WWF covets. I don't know how Madden would draw in this group more than Miller did, but it is an idea to toss around. Anyway, thoughts?

I don't know much about football, but wasn't everyone down on Madden after the Superbowl for advising the Patriots not to go for the field goal, or something like that? I kept hearing people ragging on him saying his past his usefullness, and he's more of a Harry Carey type attraction now. If this is true, I don't think he is much more of a threat to the WWF's audience that any other announcer would be.

What do you mean "now that WCW is gone" Monday Night Football was more competition than WCW ever was, even with it's decreasing ratings it still blows wrestling out of the water. I don't think Madden will make much difference, I think actually having good matches will determine whether their ratings continue to decrease or change this year. It's so hard to guess what teams are going to be good. They should book a bunch really crappy teams and hope they end being real good. I'm looking forward to a Panthers vs. Falcons match up.
