Atlanta, Ga - Due mainly to the fact that ESPN cannot locate the city of Atlanta on a map, or even recognize the Atlanta Falcons as a NFL team, ESPN has decided to cancel airing the Monday Night game featuring the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints.
This doesn't come as a shock to many people, Roddy White since tweeted. "Man, we still are going to go out there, and put on a show for our fans."
When asked about this, Trent Dilfer, an ESPN analyst and former Super Bowl-winning QB released a statement: "I completely agree with the executives that made this decision, when they said we had to start preparing for a Falcons game, none of us knew who this team was."
The main reasoning behind this move is due to ESPN not wanting to air a three-hour program about a team that they didn't know exists—it simply did not make sense.
Matt Millen, a very successful NFL General Manager with the Detroit Lions, also agreed with the decision. "Falcons, what is that, is that a bird or something?" he asked. "What relationship do they have with the NFL?"
The Georgia Dome will still be packed however, as the only way to actually see this game take place will be to actually be in attendance at the Georgia Dome.
The Falcons, despite their 12-2 record, has not been reported as an NFL team this season. Absent from highlight shows and analysis on the networks, this bird has clearly flown under the radar.
Apparently there is nothing that this Falcons team does that is sexy—they are just too dominant of an offensive team. They have won 12 games so far in the season, and they are one win away from being the No. 1 seed in the playoffs.
This change, will also affect the daily line-up of ESPN that day, starting at 4:00 p.m.
