Maybe Nickelodeon needs to run his NFL wild card playoffs with a five-second delay. Or does the producer think that the microphone might not attract players who swear on the court?
This kid-friendly broadcast is very interesting (we will introduce more about it in another article), and it is usually accepted by fans in the spirit that CBS hopes, so it is well received by the audience. The slime cannon is fired when it scores a touchdown, jumps between the first and second rows of green and orange, SpongeBob appears between the posts when making a solid ball attack, and so on.
But just before halftime, the live audio was more mature than the Nickelodeon audience (especially parents) wanted. Cordarrelle Patterson, receiver of the Chicago Bears, was asked to go out of bounds and then ran on the sidelines without making an immediate effort to return to the court. This caused Patterson̵

Oh, that’s the bomb, kids! You can’t do this on TV! In other words, there are no broadcasts aimed at children on Nickelodeon.
Announcer Noah Eagle (Noah Eagle) and analyst Nate Burleson (Nate Burleson), who broadcast one by one, did not try to explain this, because they were young and probably not in the first half of the Nickelodeon broadcast. Audiences familiar with NFL games have provided many rules and playing methods.
There are no or very few fans in the stands to make sports games quieter than usual. Even if there is noise caused by pipe noise, the live sound can be picked up by the live microphone more than usual. As a result, comments from players, coaches and officials who are usually overwhelmed are being broadcast. And they are not always suitable for prime time.
This may be what happened here, although Patterson was close enough to the official that he might have picked up the microphone. There is no word on whether Nickelodeon and CBS executives asked Patterson to wash his mouth with soap during halftime.
