NFL Network Cancels Appearance for Former Official and Fox Sports Analyst Who Was to Promote Veterans Foundation

The NFL Network canceled an appearance by Mike Pereira, a former official and Fox Sports officiating analyst, who says he planned to promote his veterans foundation, “Battlefields to Ballfields.”

Pereira took to Twitter to note the cancellation and to talk about his confusion over why he was snubbed.

“For those of you I told I was going to be on NFLN this morning, including you Veterans in Rochester, my appearance was canceled because NFLN ‘was hesitant to talk about the rules of the game at this point.’ Really?

As Pro Football Talk noted, it isn’t exactly clear why the NFL was suddenly so reticent to talk about its rules with Pereira.

“I was thinking about the shortage in officiating and how we could get veterans to become officials,” Pereira told USA Today in March of 2017.
