Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long recently voiced his displeasure with CBS for airing Bobby Petrino's cross field comments during the 41-17 loss to LSU on November 25th.
Long said that he was disappointed with the way that CBS portrayed Petrino and in their decision to show it over and over again (even in slow motion) after the game.
“Certainly none of us like the use of profane language, certainly, it happens in the heat of the battle and it’s unfortunate. But I think in this case, I’m disappointed it was displayed in the way it was by CBS.”
Long went on to say that no coach wants to be seen on national TV using profane language, but it happens and he has talked about the issue with Petrino.
“It’s not something that people should be shocked by, but, again, we don’t like the use of the language like that, certainly, where it can be shown and, being honest with you, taken out of context.”
