AL, DAN & FRANK-LESS IN SEATTLE
Published December 9, 1994
While "Monday Night Football" celebrates its 25th anniversary this season, fans in Portland and Seattle continue their 25th year of aggravation. Because stations KOMO in Seattle and KATU in Portland refuse to "give up" their local and national news between 6pm and 7pm, viewers see MNF on tape-delay. While football fans have vocally opposed the practice for a quarter- century, there's little chance for a change. The NFL "didn't know about it" until contacted by THE SPORTING NEWS. The league was not even aware of the stations' policies. But NFL Communications Dir Greg Aiello explained: "It's a situation that has been grandfathered" (Ted Rogers, THE SPORTING NEWS, 12/12 issue).
