[NSFW Video] NFL Network Naked Video: NFL Accidentally Shows Nude Bengals Players During Interview, Apologizes

The NFL Network has a viral video on their hands, but not because the interview with an NFL player was so riveting. YouTube’s list of the 200 most popular video at the moment includes an NSFW NFL Network video in the 4th position, due to the nude Bengals players that it contains.

For its part, the NFL Network has said the naked NFL players video was a mistake, as reported by NPR. In the NFL Network video, the incident occurred on Sunday after the Bengals/Bills game had ended. Several Bengals players could be seen in the video, some with towels wrapped around their bodies, some without. It isn’t known whether or not the Bengals players walking around in the nude knew if there was a camera behind them, capturing their naked bodies within the frame of the video shoot as another NFL player was being interviewed, fully clothed.

As reported by TMZ, the naked NFL player video upset Katherine Webb McCarron, whose husband plays for the Cincinnati Bengals. Married to A. J. McCarron, a backup quarterback on the Bengals team, Webb expressed her frustration that the butts and frontal nudity of a few of her husband’s Cincinnati Bengals teammates were displayed during the live TV shot via NFL Network’s interview with Pacman Jones. On Twitter, Katherine complained about the nakedness being displayed and clapped back at those who didn’t understand her point of view.

“I would rather my husbands a**/penis not be all over TV. Would you like to be filmed while naked? Players should have their privacy.”

Others agreed with Katherine, such as NFL player Andrew Whitworth, who is a Bengals lineman. Whitworth wondered aloud why Andrew and his NFL cohorts couldn’t be interviewed in other places where there’s less of a chance to catch NFL players in the nude.

“We work in large massive stadiums. There’s plenty of other spaces to interview. #NoExcuses. Why do I have to explain to my kids why their dad is naked on tv? Time for a media policy change.”

The naked video of NFL players, as reported by Cincinnati.com, was a source of frustration for Andrew, and he joins the voices of those who are pressing for a change in the policy of locker room interviews. On Twitter, there was a variety of reactions to the NFL Network’s faux pas of airing naked NFL players on live TV.

“I think we NEED MORE locker room interviews.”

Andrea Watkins admitted that the NFL Network video reminded her of when she saw similar things as a sports producer.

“Ah this takes me back to my days as a sports producer. Some day I’ll tell ya my stories of hockey and basketball.”

Others on Twitter blamed the camera person for the shot of naked butts.

“How can you not know this is going to happen when you’re setting up that shot?”

Still other Twitter users joked about wanting to see more of the nude NFL players.

“I love my Bengals…. But uuummm I think they did the interviews a lil to quick couple of naked bengals exposed LoL”

Sean Gallagher joked about the conversation that might have occurred between the journalist and the camera person prior to the now famous nude shot.

“Reporter: ‘You sure you won’t get the naked players in the background?’ Cameraman: ‘Yeah. We should be fine.’ “

Outside of the Bengals nude controversy, others wrote about the Green Bay Packers nude-colored pants making them appear naked as they played the game of football.
