NBC Airs 'Bullsh*t' Chant

NBC may be in hot water with the FCC ... after the network aired a seemingly never-ending, crystal-clear "bullsh*t" chant that erupted in the stadium during the Ravens vs. Patriots game on "Sunday Night Football."

In case you were watching the Emmys last night ... things got pretty insane during last night's prime time NFL  matchup ... when the crowd in Baltimore was convinced the replacement refs blew another call and unleashed the most perfectly executed "BS" chant we've ever heard.

Even announcer Al Michaels commented, "It's the loudest manure chant I've ever heard."

The FCC often declines to punish networks when a "fleeting expletive" makes it to air during a live sporting event ... and it's unclear if they're even legally allowed to do so. But since this "BS" chant was so clear and went on for several minutes, it's possible the FCC could drop the hammer on NBC for failing to cut the sound out of the broadcast.

We've reached out to the FCC -- and a rep told us they were "looking into the matter."

A rep for NBC had no comment.

A rep for the Ravens -- Senior Vice President of Public and Community Relations Kevin Byrne -- tells TMZ ... "We’re certainly aware of it. Normally, our crowd is one of the most enthusiastic and respectful home audiences in all of sports.”

The funny thing is they were chanting bulls**t during the 1 call they got right. It was an interception by the Ravens but only because Welker was interfered. They called defensive holding when it really should have been interference but either way it was a clear penalty.


Then the next play the head coach got a flag for berating the officials and the chants got even louder.


But i'm glad they were so loud and easy to hear, hopefully Roger Goodell heard them and will finally get the real refs back so these guys can go back to their day jobs at the local Foot Locker.

I wish the Fans would Boycott all NFL Stadiums until the real Refs come back I swear my biggest pet peeve is when bad officiating determines the outcome of games. Football Soccer and Baseball are getting worse and worse lately because of either idiot or corrupt refs

get mad at the refs that are holding out. if they cared for their profession they would be reffing games not listening to another useless union that just screws everything up. the average salary of an NFL player in 2011 was $1.9 million but they hold out because they want a bigger piece of the owners cut..refs make average of $8,764 a game. i dream of running up and down a football field for 60 minutes for $8,764. Unions suck! They make everything expensive. I dream of playing a game for a living. F the player..F the refs...Triple F the effing unions in America.

Can anyone blame the fans for there chant ?

These Replacement Refs don't know what the hell there doing out there I hope The NFL and Roger Goodell and come to terms with the real refs this week, Because some of the calls there's scabs are calling are bullsh!t calls.

When the announcers are questioning the calls as well as the coaches then there should be an end to the dispute with the real refs and get theses scabs off the fields once and for all .
