The NFL removed a replacement official assigned to Sunday’s New Orleans at Carolina game after it was revealed that he’s a Saints fan.
The official removed from the game was a line judge, he was assigned to a team he’s a fan of. Side judge Brian Stropolo posted pictures of himself in Saints apparel to Facebook and tailgating at one of the teams preseason games. ESPN.com contacted league offices Sunday morning to let them know about the photos, the league then removed Stropolo from the game.
Who else thinks the NFL should do more research on its replacement officials?
