Well its mainly due to the West teams making the most sense for a double monday night game, seeing as how late the game would start and end in other time zones.
Frankly isn't it time for the NFC West to start taking up those 2nd monday night games? I kinda hate being the 2nd monday night game.

Its actually not Angelo, its MLB and the MLBPA. The night before, both the Orioles and White Sox have night games, arrive late/early the next day. Its ridiculous to force the players and coaches to have such a quick turnaround and play early on Thursday. Angelo has no say in this, and I don't blame the MLB for telling the NFL no. I mean, why can't Baltimore open at home on Sunday night? Stop having so many freakin traditions that seem unbreakable, like the defending champion has to open on the thursday night game.
