Monday Night Football color commentator Jon Gruden said nearly under his breath "I used to really love football," after officials overturned their initial call of an Antonio Brown touchdown catch in the fourth quarter of the Steelers' eventual 30-23 win over the Houston Texans.
It was an oddly placed comment, one play-by-play broadcaster Mike Tirico tried to spin off after asking him about it. Perhaps Gruden's issue was in regards to the review process itself. Upon review, it appeared to be a very close call, one that typically leads to keeping the call on the field.
This time, it was overturned, and Brown found photographic evidence suggesting it should have been upheld. Then he dropped an F-bomb in regards to the offficials. Brown's version of the Tweet has since been removed but the original is out there.

It was as close as it gets, and the TV angles shown during the broadcast didn't seem to show this much separation between Brown's foot and the sideline, but if the image is unaltered, it appears replay failed again. And provided another example of the ruined love affair between Gruden and the game of football.
