They say the Super Bowl is the safest place on earth. And yet, every now and then, someone comes from the stands to the field.
Tonight, a pair of shirtless men stormed the field during a game. They were corralled and escorted, presumably, to the hoosegow.
TV coverage usually downplays such incidents, presumably to remove any additional incentive to do so. But why not show them – including the often ungentlemanly manner in which they are removed from the premises?
It is so dumb that it is considered verboten to show people who interrupt the action. It’s part of the game’s story. If the NFL doesn’t like it, the NFL needs to do a better job of securing the field.
