Disgusted by yesterday’s Eagles game? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. In fact, you’re in pretty good company.

Merrill Reese, the legendary play-by-play voice for the Eagles Radio Network, was so upset by the team’s performance that he couldn’t even get through the standard “express, written consent” disclaimer without criticizing the team. Reese couldn't even fathom why anybody would even bother rebroadcasting the Eagles' 27-6 drubbing at the hands of the Cardinals:

…any rebroadcast of today’s game is expressly prohibited… rebroadcast? Of this!? I don’t think you -- I dare you! …without the express, written consent of the NFL…

97.3 ESPN Radio has the excerpted audio. [Edit: Ironically, the audio is now gone because, ironically, posting it consititued rebroadcasting without consent.]
