Mike Goldberg apologizes for response to critical NFL debut comments

UFC play-by-play commentator Mike Goldberg took to Twitter to apologize today after responding unprofessionally to some harsh comments regarding his NFL play-by-play debut last Sunday.

Goldberg called the Detroit Lions – Minnesota Vikings game and made several noticeable errors which riled up NFL fans who then took to Twitter to vent.

Goldberg used the F-word and “Douche” word in his responsive tweets to describe the critical fans. Those tweets have since been deleted.

As he explains in the subsequent tweets, he and the NFL have decided to part ways for now.


Here are Goldberg’s tweets:

Goldberg will call the upcoming October 25th UFC 179: Aldo vs Mendes II pay-per-view along with long-time broadcasting partner Joe Rogan.


In a human moment, Goldberg let the Twitter trolls get to him after a bad day at the NFL office. He’s good and personable guy from our dealings with him and having directly observed the way he treats others. He did the right thing in apologizing. Dust yourself off Goldie, and try again.
