After ignoring all pre-game shows and watching then quickly muting the MNF broadcast that was clearly the most over-the-top presentation I've seen for any sports broadcast, I started to wonder whether this whole thing has peaked with ESPN's distractions Monday night or whether we can expect more of the same in the coming week(s). This has gone pear shaped, and while the team appears to be dealing with this fairly well, the fans by having to find alternative audio broadcasts and avoiding pre-game shows are now being distracted by the sport news frenzy of covering this team. This impacts Pats fans and anti Pats fans alike, as both groups are growing sick of narrow media focus. What is the thinking here? Is it going to get worse than MNF or will it be handled more tastefully by the networks scheduled to broadcast the upcoming games? Also, is it truly a distraction, and if so, how are you dealing with it?
