Stop!

Blow the whistle!

Flag on the play!

During last night’s broadcast of “Monday Night Football,” retired quarterback Eli Manning did a TV no-no.

While telling a story about how ruthless the fans in Philadelphia can be, Manning demonstrated how fans as young as nine years old would flip him the double bird.

“You go to Philly, you’re getting the double bird right away from a nine-year-old kid,” he said, while initially raising two clenched fists.

“I would give the bird – I don’t know, can we do that,” he said after already committing to making the gesture. “I’m sure you can blur that out, right. It’s over now.”

And as you can tell, it was not blurred.

Later on in the game, Manning did issue an apology, albeit a snarky one.

“Earlier I gave the double bird, I guess that’s frowned upon,” he said. “I apologize if I’ve offended anybody. That’s what a nine-year-old did to me, I thought I could do it back.”

That’s too little, too late there, Eli.
