    I'm sure the price is right, and Troy has openly expressed his disdain for doing two games a week, which happens to him from time to time.

    Espn is gonna make Troy work hard for that money. They'll have him on every show they have on that network every week. First take, Get up and Nfl live.

    Wow! Over $17.5 million a year to call a game a week for six months.

    FOX contract with MLB for exclusive broadcast rights for the World Series was extended three years ago to run through the 2028 season.
    Joe Buck ain’t giving up that gig to keep doing NFL games with Aikman.

    I will only watch ESPN when the Cowboys are on. A once great station has been destroyed.

    Monday Night Football and college football games are the only things I watch on ESPN. I refuse to even acknowledge all of their other garbage programming at this point; and I agree they used to be an incredible network.

    If he takes the gig --- Aikman wouldn't do it; but I'd bet he would have the producers bring out Dandy Don's rendition for airing once or twice a season to show homage to the late Cowboys QB / MNF commentor legend.

    While this is a great get, they need a cohost who is on par with Aikman. Would be weird getting a superstar number 2 and then a nobody leading the telecast

    Troy deserves more than the vastly overrated Romo.

    the monday night game is marquee in name only, it's often a boring, uninteresting game. I'm much rather have Troy on the best NFC game every week.

    Monday Night Football lost almost all of its luster when ABC moved it from the over the air broadcast to ESPN on cable. It became the minor football game of the week. Over the past two decades I would laugh at the players and fans that would mention the Monday night game as something significant. It's the lowest rated game of all of the national telecasts. ABC is going to try to restore some of the luster by moving some games next season to the broadcast network, and hopefully hire some big name announcers. They are doing it so they can be included in the Super Bowl rotation. I think a couple of seasons from now all of the Monday night games will be on the ABC broadcast network like they were when Monday Night Football was the biggest show in town.

    He will be an upgrade.

    Amazed he chose them. They’ll be asking for his pronouns immediately.

    Lol, Troy will fit right in with SAS and Michael Irvin. I would watch it just for the look on Troy's face with SAS doing his theatrics.

    Is Steve Young still on MNF? I honestly don’t know. If he is that certainly makes for an interesting combination…

    MNF need to have better match ups. Really dont see the point of MNF anf TNF. It been very trash lately. I recall when TNF came out execlusive on NFLN. They use to have some great match ups. Now its just meh.
