Adam Schefter found himself in hot water with a different network following his report about the Ravens-Steelers game.
Following multiple postponements, the league finally decided to play the Ravens-Steelers game on Wednesday afternoon at 3:40 p.m. ET.
NBC decided to put the game earlier in the day because the 88th Rockefeller Tree Lighting ceremony was set to take place that night, but it appears that Adam Schefter reported that news with a sarcastic tone.
As a result, NBC reportedly wanted an apology.
Here’s what Schefter told 104.5 KNBR:
“It’s come to my attention that the fine folks at NBC weren’t particularly pleased,” Schefter said of the incident that took place on ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown. “They felt like I was mocking.
“Let’s say there was a little chuckle there. Again, I don’t think what I did was over the top. I thought it was just like ‘Okay, well this is just in, NFL’s going to 3:40 because it’s (small chuckle) the 88th Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting Ceremony.’ Well there were people at NBC who were not happy.
“My understanding is they want an apology. My response is, what am I apologizing for? I reported factual…again, did I say anything that wasn’t factual? That’s my question.”
It appears Adam Schefter has still not delivered that apology — at least not publicly yet.
