I am a Fan of NFL games on regular TV however I 114% support Disney going back to 5-6 games be simulcast on ABC & 3 that will not be exclusive with ESPN.

Biggest Football telecast for ESPN on ABC will be SEC in addition to 3:30PM games they would do 15 extra & would like to see half of them in Prime Time plus I am a Fan of SEC playing evening games especially Georgia Bulldogs.
