FOX APOLOGIZES FOR SHOWING SHIANCOE'S SCHLONG

Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that FOX has apologized for broadcasting an image of Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe’s, um, loose front from the locker room after Minnesota’s 20-16 win over the Lions.
It was an obvious oversight on our part, and we apologize,” said Dan Bell, FOX’s V.P. of communications.
Though some fear that FOX might face a hefty sanction from the FCC for violating indecency rules, the $550,000 in fines imposed against CBS for Janet Jackson’s 2004 “wardrobe malfunction” were scuttled by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, based on the notion that the FCC’s fine represented a departure from its “prior policy excepting fleeting broadcast material from the scope of actionable indecency.”
Under that reasoning, FOX likely won’t face a fine.

  1. Lol, please put a link to this up. It was hilarious.
    I want to show all my Viking friends that missed it.

  2. Fox will think twice next time before going into a locker room live to broadcast Visanthe’s Shiancoe.

    There wasn’t anything to see. It was just pubic hair.
    —————————–
    Then that guy’s got the most impressive pubic dreds I’ve ever seen.

  4. “Meanwhile, Shiancoe is currently entertaining offers from Playgirl Magazine and various other adult enterprises.”

  5. Put it back up. I wanna see the schlong. Chris Cooley got over it and laughed at the ‘exposure’. Seriously, Florio, he’d probably appreciate the attention.

  6. There’s a reason that camera angles are usually from the waist up when filming locker rooms. Obviously this camera man will be seeking employment elsewhere. I hear the Patriots are hiring a new sideline camera man…

  7. Fox should have done a cut-in to the Packers locker room. There would have been much less danger involved.
    After all, nobody on that team has any balls at all.

  8. Wow! After looking at that Deadspin link, I’ll bet Shiancoe’s new nickname is going to be “Trigger.”

  9. Not that I ever care to see it. But I think there might be a good lawsuit due to defamation due to shrinkage. See Florio, you ain’t the only one to make a Seinfeld reference.

  10. If that is not his SCHLONG then he is smuggeling polish sausage from the after game buffet

  11. I noticed that Chilly was gazing in that direction also…Keep the eyes up front Coach. Maybe that is where Childress got the inspiration for his famous quote, “Its 190 pounds of twisted steel and rompin stompin dynamite!”

  12. It looks like Shianco has eyes for Wilf and Chili is sneaking a peek! Hilarious!!!!!

  13. Wow, I’m happy I switched to the end of the Packers game coverage.
    Nothing against Shiancoe, I’m sure he made his family proud even if he didn’t know he was representing at the time.
    Anyone remember the famous Bengal’s interviewing towel?
    Sam had a good idea.

  14. Radneck, I’m with you. Maybe even women’s vollyball. Some of those ladies are smoking and covered with tanning oil.
    I got to take a cold shower – later

  15. Steelhack has the funniest posting on this one.
    That crack about your girlfriend wanting it as a FATHEAD is priceless my brother.
    I’m still chuckling
