Stropolo on the shelf pending league review

Not only will Brian Stropolo not be calling any Saints games anytime soon, he won’t be calling any NFL games.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that the league has decided to withhold any future assignments for the replacement official pending a review.

Stropolo was pulled from Sunday’s Panthers-Saints game when Facebook photos of him in Saints gear and at Saints games were revealed shortly before he was to take the field.

While calling non-Saints games might have been a possibility, the league has decided to press pause on this one to catch up on a story they have appeared hopelessly behind on.

Mortensen reports one of Stropolo’s other sins (other than an apparent lack of awareness or social media savvy) was revealing his assignment online before a game. His Facebook page has since been disabled.
