Props to the NFL Network. The fans just shouted down Roger Goodell when he appeared on stage for the first time. After a thoughtful moment to recognize the tragedy in Alabama, ESPN went to a hard break. No mention from on-set announcers of what happened before or after the break. Conversely, NFLN's Rich Eisen put the surreal moment in perspective. "Fascinating moment... a moment of silence preceded by fan demonstration." Both nets did show fans chanting, "Let them play" and ESPN offered nice close-up on one fan screaming "We want football."
