NFL investigating ESPN over MNF timeouts



I've never been much of a fan of ESPN, but apparently the NFL is investigating allegations that both Jeff Fisher and Jack Del Rio were asked to take timeouts during this week's game in order to allow ESPN to broadcast more commercials.  There are 20 commercial timeouts allotted for in a game and if the game does not allow for all 20 to be used then ESPN must refund that money.  Fisher says he was approached and asked to take his timeouts and he declined, preferring to be able to take a knee,end the game and avoid any unnecessary injuries.  Fisher also accused Del Rio of taking timeouts for this reason.

ESPN is denying this, but why would Fisher make up such a thing?  In the 49ers game we saw Mike Singletary call timeouts in an attempt to score a meaningless touchdown, which resulted in injury to one of his players.  I can't imagine the league being happy with this turn of events.
