I also think that letting Mr. Michaels out of the ESPN contract was the right thing to do. Mr. Michaels and John Madden, and the rest of the MNF team have always aired an excellent show. It would be wrong to break up the team (not just Al and John, but the whole MNF production).
I am happy that Mr. Iger seems to understand and respect tradition, loyalty, and history. He also seems to be able to strike the proper balance of the three.
I am looking forward to the future of the Walt Disney Company for the first time in a long time.
