Someone posted a phone number on here about a week ago to reach the NFL offices. I called it back a week ago and they told me they were meeting to resolve the problem with the Redskins, Cowboys fans in NY/NJ area. I was wondering if anyone had that number. I want to hear that I won't be able to see my team because I'm unfortunate enough to live in the NY Giants area. The Monday Night game is our game, they can't just take it away. I'm really going to flip out on them, so if anyone can give me the number, It'd be highly appreciated.
Thats Jenny's number, I don't know if she will be much help with football.
She might be able to help with other things though.

I would say it's too late. Find a good internet radio station and hope the Giants run the ball all over the Saints and the game goes fast. I'm in the same boat.

I have been in contact with a member from the NFL. I was notified this would be resolved. For what is worth, attached is the note I received
TIRICO AND SHARPE TO CALL CHIEFS-RAIDERS GAME ON ESPN ON SEPT. 18
ESPNís Sunday Night Football team of Mike Patrick, Joe Theismann, Paul Maguire and Suzy Kolber will call the ABC and ESPN telecast of the New Orleans Saints-New York Giants game on Monday, September 19, which the National Football League moved to Giants Stadium in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. With ESPNís SNF team switching nights, play-by-play commentator Mike Tirico and NFL Network analyst Sterling Sharpe will call ESPNís scheduled Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders Sunday primetime game on Sept. 18 at 8:30 p.m.
ABCís Monday Night Football broadcast team of Al Michaels, John Madden and Michele Tafoya will cover the scheduled MNF game between the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium.
The Monday Night Football doubleheader telecast will include an unprecedented fund-raising telethon from ABCís Times Square studio in New York City, culminating the NFLís ďHurricane Relief Weekend.Ē The telethon will raise money for the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund (www.bushclintonkatrinafund.com), which former Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton are leading. The fund serves as an umbrella organization for three special funds established by the governors of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi to assist in the long-term recovery plan for those states.
Kick-off for the Saints-Giants game is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC as part of a rare NFL primetime doubleheader. The New Orleans and New York television markets will see the game in its entirety on ABC, and the start of Redskins-Cowboys on ESPN. The rest of the country will see the Redskins-Cowboys game at 9 p.m. on ABC, while also having the option to see the conclusion of the Saints-Giants telecast on ESPN.
ESPN will have a strong presence at both Monday night games with studio programming originating from both stadiums. Dan Patrick will host SportsCenter and offer special live reports from Giants Stadium between 6-6:30 p.m., while Monday Night Countdown will continue its season-opening road shows live from Texas Stadium between 6:30 Ė 7:30 p.m. Countdown will include live reports from NFL analyst Ron Jaworski and reporter Sal Paolantonio from the Saints-Giants game, as well as Ed Werder from the Redskins-Cowboys game before the planned 7:30 p.m. doubleheader kickoff.
The Chiefs-Raiders game is the first of three ESPN game telecasts that Tirico and Sharpe will call together during the 2005 NFL season. The duo is already scheduled to work ESPNís Saturday night games during the NFL doubleheader weekends in December Ė Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills, Dec. 17 at 8:30 p.m., and New York Giants at Oakland Raiders, Dec. 31 at 8 p.m. Tirico, one of sports televisionís most versatile on-air personalities, also handled the play-by-play for the American Bowl preseason telecast in Tokyo in August. Sharpe was a member of ESPNís Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown teams from 1995-2003.
ABC affiliates in the following local markets will be airing the Saints-Giants through its conclusion (with the Redskins-Cowboys game airing on ESPN):
New York extended area: Albany, NY; Bangor, ME; Binghamton, NY; Elmira, NY; Hartford-New Haven, CT; New York, NY; Portland, ME; Rochester, NY; Syracuse, NY; Utica, NY; Watertown, NY.
