Former NFL Hall of Famer, Michael Irvin expressed his confusion after the NFL Network revealed that he had been removed from their coverage of Super Bowl LVII due to an allegation of misconduct.
According to Dallas Morning News reporter Michael Gehlken, a NFL Media spokesperson, Alex Riethmiller, announced that Michael Irvin will not be included in the NFL Network's coverage for Super Bowl LVII week.
Irvin spoke with Michael Gehlken and contested an undisclosed accusation made by a woman regarding an alleged encounter that took place in the lobby of his hotel in Arizona on Sunday evening. The accuser has reportedly directed the claim against the former Dallas Cowboys player.
“Honestly, I’m a bit baffled with it all,” Irvin shared. “This all happened in a 45-second conversation in the lobby. When I got back after going out … I came into the lobby, and I talked to somebody. I talked to this girl. I don’t know her, and I talked to her for about 45 seconds.”

“We shook hands,” he continued. “Then, I left. That’s all I know.”
The NFL commentator stated that he went out drinking with a friend and upon his return to the lobby, he engaged in a conversation with a woman.
“It was just a friendly conversation,” Irvin said. “‘What’s up?’ I don’t even know. I am totally perplexed.”
“What law did I break?” the sports commentator questioned. “There was definitely nothing physical. … That’s honestly all that happened. Nobody was in my room. It was a 45-second conversation in the lobby, a handshake and we left … I don’t know. I don’t know what this is, and it’s running me crazy.”
According to The New York Post, Irvin was previously accused of sexual assault in 2007, however, he was not charged in connection to the incident which occurred at a casino in Florida. A civil suit was filed against him, but he countered with his own claim and the issue was ultimately resolved outside of court.
