FCC Fine For Fox Football?

Okay, so I’m a bit of an Eagles fan due to some family ties. However, I’m sure Fox won’t drop football the way Clear Channel dropped Howard Stern when they review their broadcast for indecency. I caught this screen capture in the background on my Mac TV Tuner while watching the game. I wonder if the FCC will have a double standard on TV versus radio, especially when the audience for this broadcast is probably two to three times the size of Stern’s usual audience. (~8:37 in the first quarter of the game, lasted for 10 seconds between plays) They have a standard 3-5 second delay AND for satellite, you have even a longer delay. What’s your take on this? I choose to defer to George Carlin to make up my mind on this. However, will somebody sic the Parents Television Council on Fox? Second question for the guys… Perfect woman? (smokin’ body, into sports… and well, you can make up your mind about the rest…)

    Damn shame “da Igles” lost… they played much better as a team than the Saints…. New Orleans only have McAllister to thank… the Eagles had much more depth.. oh well, bad luck… time to wait till next year…

    I guess it’s ok to read “f*ck” on tv but not to say it on the radio – american kids can’t read anyways right – but they can hear dirty words from a mile away… stupid fcc

    When streakers go onto the field, the camera men are told not to show them, and the announcers are under strict rules not to talk about steakers for fear of encouraging other bad behavior. The only exception to announcers having to censor themselves is when the camera can clearly SEE someone’s mouth saying a profane word – then the announcers can giggle. The FCC will not investigate the TShirt from the football game unless someone actually submits a formal sort of request to the FCC. But come on. Are you really that offended?
