It was the MNF football guys (Gruden and whoever the play by play man is now). They were 100% correct.


I call him Sean "Scrote" McDonough. I call him Scrote because his head looks like a big ballbag.

...then his last name should be "McDon'tKnow", if we're calling them like we see them...

Seriously, what are they thinking?

Regardless of how it actually turns out, this is the biggest regular season game in several years (as evidenced by the fact that ESPN is taking their pregame show to the game sight for only the 2nd time ever). So with everyone watching they decide to assign a crew that continually slows down the game and interrupts the flow. Even if the calls are close to equal, why would you want the optics of this high profile game to look that way?

Just makes no sense for the league............... :?

Why is everyone assuming the Steelers will the net loser in this? My guess is that a crew like this, big game, rabid stadium, would be more inclined to favor the home team. Most likely OPI target will be Gronk.

They've called even more against away teams! 7-8 per team every game. It's N-V-T-S.

Yes it does. They want to castrate an aggressive defense. This protects Brady.
