Tell Chris your opinion.

During the early part of FOX's playoff game featuring the Philadelphia Eagles against the New Orleans Saints on Saturday night, the cameras “accidentally” panned their cameras to a young lady in the crowd with a profane comment on her T-shirt. The cameras had cut to the crowd after the Saints' fans were celebrating following an incomplete pass attempt by the Eagles. For about four seconds, the cameras were focused on the female Saints fan, whose shirt read "F**K DA EAGLES". Of course, there weren't any asterisks in the word, as the actual profanity was spelled on the shirt.

The big issue here is that FOX, or television crews as football games, typically do not flash to someone in the crowd unless they want to show a certain person. In other words, they aren't going to show some general, boring person - they will show someone typically dressed in a costume, or celebrating happily. It'll be interesting to see what the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) does about this incident, considering all of the matters they have dealt with in the past.

Here is a photo of the incident:
