This weekend, former Rams Orlando Pace and Kevin Greene were inducted to the NFL Hall of Fame.
During the Big O’s speech, he thanked the city of St. Louis, his NFL home for 12 of his 13 seasons:
To the St. Louis Ram fans, I’m so proud to say we brought that city a championship. Thank you for the support that you gave us during that run. No one can ever take that away from you.
Strangely, when the NFL uploaded the video to YouTube, that part of the video was omitted.
The speeches from every other inductee were uploaded unedited, including QB Brett Favre’s 30+-minute speech.
Last night, the NFL made that edited video private and uploaded Pace’s speech in its entirety to YouTube.
How did the NFL explain the decision to edit out Pace’s remarks?
@GreggPalermo The NFL Media group said this was a technical error and they are in the process of uploading the full version.— Brian McCarthy (@NFLprguy) August 7, 2016
A technical error. Yeah.
