Brian Stropolo is an NFL replacement referee who’s also a diehard New Orleans Saints fan. He was supposed to work as a side judge for the Panthers-Saints game this afternoon but the NFL pulled him at the last minute after ESPN informed them of some odd Facebook pictures. Pictures that showed him at a Saints tailgate wearing Saints gear.
Stropolo’s Facebook profile has since been taken down but we pulled some photos prior to its removal.
That sound you heard was Ed Hochuli maniacally cackling.
