ESPN won't air anthem before Monday Night Football games, returning to prior practice

New ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro said on Friday that the network will not show the national anthem during Monday Night Football broadcasts, which is a return to standard operating procedure and a recognition of fans’ desires.

‘Our fans like the game’

Via Axios.com reporter Sara Fischer, Pitaro said it isn’t a hard-and-fast decision.

I agree with ESPN's decision. I never understood why the National Anthem needed to be televised before any sporting events. With the time it takes to sing the National Anthem ESPN can use that time to sell more advertising which pays their bills. If something happens during the National Anthem, ESPN can always cut into the commercial or run the video of it when the commercial ends.
