Monday Night Football travesty on WABC

It doesn't quite rise to the level of infamy of "The Heidi Game," the 1968 game between the Oakland Raiders and New York Jets when the NBC television network cut most of its affiliates away to show the movie "Heidi," robbing viewers of the final 1:05 in which Oakland came back from a 32-29 deficit to win, 43-32.

But tonight, WABC repeatedly pre-empted parts of their parent ABC Television Network's "Monday Night Football" broadcast, replacing the entire halftime show and parts of actual play coverage with news updates about a looming transit strike in New York City.
