Man has Super Bowl credential revoked after Facebook post

SHARE Man has Super Bowl credential revoked after Facebook post

Meet Russ Knight.

He’s an ex-DJ turned cab driver in Arizona who landed the opportunity to work as an “assistant frequency coordinator” for the NFL during Super Bowl week, according to a report from CBS.

The NFL sent Knight his credential for the big game with the stipulation that he not post any pictures of the passes on the Internet.

But Knight was so excited, he posted a picture of himself on the Internet — you guessed it — wearing the credential.

A few hours later, he got a call from security.

“He said ‘Russ, we’ve got a problem,’” Knight told CBS. “Apparently, on my picture, even though it’s far away, they could zoom in and they could read my credential on the bottom.

“I can’t blame anybody else,” Knight said. “I was the guy. I was the fool who didn’t read the fine print. I was that guy.”

Knight told CBS he’s telling his story to prevent the same thing from happening to others.
