Per ESPN, side judge Brian Stropolo was dumped from the game because he's a huge Saints* fan.

Brian Stropollo was pulled today from the game for being a Saints* fan. NFL just found this out this week and pulled from the game. On NFL Countdown this morning.

One of the side judges was pulled because he is a Saints* fan. Trying to protect the integrity of the game.

Yeah the NFL needs to pay up and bring back the regular refs, like now.

This poo is happening and it's only week 2..

Well, ESPN is actually good for something....


You would think the NFL would ask if any of these guys are raging homers for a team. That seems like something very basic....

Wise decision by the league, in my opinion.

Guy had plenty of online pics and posts of him in Saints* gear and expressing his Saints* fanhood. He even went online and gabbed with other fans about how he was going to be working today's game. Not a wise move, I'd say.

I wonder how much of this goes on that doesn't get caught.

He should lose the ref gig completely... Be a fan, but tell the league... To go online and brag about it, he's obviously an idiot.
