MNF Timeouts


Registered Member
Interesting story floating around today. Jeff Fisher said that Jack Del Rio was told by ESPN to use timeouts at the end of the game to get more commercials in. ESPN and the NFL have denied the claims and Del Rio hasn't been made available for comment. I don't know if Fisher said this in jest, but if it's true, wouldn't surprise me one bit.

Did ESPN Ask Del Rio, Fisher To Take Timeouts?

Funny...I wonder what actions the NFL will take if these allegations are true.
They aren't going to do anything. Why would they? It's not hurting anybody. It's annoying, yeah.. but there's nothing that needs to be done. The commercials pay to advertise, most of the commercials when they call a time out are football related, meaning the NFL is making money because their likeliness is being used.
