Blandino is expected to take a TV job.

This comes just as the NFL has centralized the replay system, giving Blandino and his staff final say on video reviews instead of the game’s referee.

Blandino is apparently a Dallas Cowboys fan.

“Ding dong the witch is dead,” Angelo Cataldi said on Friday’s 94WIP Morning Show when hearing the news.
