Where did you hear Trump is pushing for 3rd parties to be included, and why do you think they would all gang up on Hillary?

Jill Stein will at least. She's always harping on Clinton and her path to relevancy is by peeling off Sanders supporters. The theory is that Trump is trying to either weasel out of the debates by the debate commission not bending to him in a variety of ways. Whether or not that is true or not remains to be seen.

So True

Monday Night Football only just started in 1966
Sunday Night Football only just started in 1987

How could anyone have guessed that there would be Football Games on Sunday & Monday nights???
It's a mystery.

So what if there's an NFL game? Anyone that prioritizes watching football over a Presidential debate deserves whatever they get.

If Trump had any actual faith in his supporters he would not be worried about it.

You don't need a schedule to know there is Monday Night Football.

C'mon you guys, don't you realize what is happening here? Who is the primary audience for football? TRUMP VOTERS. M - E - N.

What is happening here exactly? A debate schedule set a year in advance, prior to when we knew who the nominees were going to be, on days of the week debates held in the past are some sort of conspiracy now??

I heard on the radio that there are ZERO days in October that don't have a football game, MLB playoff game, etc. There is no chance of there not being some conflict Donnie could whine about to try to avoid the debate.

It's crystal clear that he's crapping his pants over the reality of having to do this, and desperately seeking an escape hatch.

I like the point that was made in an earlier post, that in a 4 year period there are 4 Presidential level debates and 1000 NFL games. It's almost saying, people - get your priorities straight. There are other games you can watch. Just one of the things I hate about society, the obsession with sports.
