  • Dozens of NFL fans and commentators took to social media to voice their displeasure with the football network’s badly timed commercial break.
  • “I think @nflnetwork should issue an apology to everyone watching the Steelers game,” Pittsburgh-area sports reporter and anchor Emily Giangreco tweeted.
  • “To go to commercial and not show the video montage of Franco Harris’ jersey retirement is insanely disrespectful. Even if it was a mistake, you should have immediately dumped out of the break.”
