On Tuesday night, NFL Network aired a series of F-bombs spoken by someone off camera (it sounded like Warren Sapp) during a segment about moves that Patriots are making in free agency.
On Wednesday morning, NFL Network apologized.
NFL Network’s Chris Rose opened Wednesday’s Free Agency Frenzy news show by reading an apology, which didn’t offer many details about what the league-owned network was apologizing for and probably left viewers who hadn’t heard about Tuesday night’s F-bombs confused.
“Before we give you the news of the day we want to offer an apology,” Rose said. “Last night during some live programming, we accidentally aired an expletive. It will not happen again, so our sincerest apology to Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots, the Patriots family, Robert Kraft and his entire family, a classy organization out there. Once again, it’s not who we are, it’s not what we do, and it will not happen again.”
NFL Network has not said whether anyone was disciplined for the fact that an employee could be heard saying “The f–king Bill Belichick f–king angle” on the air.
