Side judge replaced for being Saints fan

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- We’re about to witness what I’m pretty sure is history at Bank of America Stadium.

In a game in which Aaron Kromer will serve as interim interim head coach of the New Orleans Saints, we’ll have a replacement replacement official.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen just reported that side judge Brian Stropolo has been pulled from Sunday’s officiating crew after the league learned that his Facebook page was filled with Stropolo wearing Saints shirts and other merchandise.

Officials are supposed to be neutral and aren’t supposed to be fans.

No word yet on who will take Stropolo’s place on the field, but each crew brings along an alternate official.
