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.”

Due to the Republicans they are more concerned with language like this or no nudity for Network TV. They need to stop these child like laws. Have you noticed that violence is fine to show on TV. The Republicans run the congress and they set these stupid laws.

I am spartacus....I have to correct you. We did not (and I do me we cause I was there) start chanting BULLSH!T until after the 2nd flag. We didn't care if the flag was right or wrong for that matter....we were tired of ALL the BS calls made that night, and tired of the replacement refs. I'm figuring that our chant, plus that BOGUS call from Monday Nights game is what led to the real refs coming back tonight. You all are very welcome! Now if only my voice would come back.
