UPDATE: NFL Head of Officiating Dean Blandino Is Leaving for TV

Cowboys supporter and NFL head of officiating Dean Blandino, seen here leaving a Cowboys party bus (not a euphemism), is now leaving the NFL to go work for a network, according to Ian Rappppppppppopopopopopopoport and Aditi Kinkhabwala. Which network? Doubtful that it’s FOX, as Mike Pereira pioneered the former-official-talking-head role (quite well, I might add) years ago and probably isn’t going anywhere. This story is like catnip for NFL reporters on a holiday weekend Friday, and Peter King, who just won me over, will catch flak for his overly melodramatic Tweet here:

This is exactly the sort wording about an inside-baseball move that disconnects NFL reporters from the rest of civilization.

Anyway, today is a classic news dump day, so stay woke.

UPDATE: It sounds like Blandino is headed to NBC. I look forward to how many gambling references Al Michaels works into his exchanges with him.

  1. I have it on good authority that Dean Blandino was filmed in NFL HQ parking lot sucking face with Linda Cohn.

  2. The Ian Rapopopopopoport joke wasn’t funny the first 18 times you did it, and it’s still not funny
