Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend a day on the set of NFL Redzone? As it turns out, it really wouldn’t be all that glamorous.

Pro Football Focus‘ Mike Renner recently shared a photo of the set of NFL Redzone. Essentially, it’s a giant green room with one small podium. That’s it. That’s the set.

NFL fans couldn’t believe the simplicity of the set — especially considering the complexity of the job done on NFL Network. The tweet received just under 40,000 likes.

One fan was a little upset about the peak behind the curtain, saying, “Why ruin the magic though?” Another added, “Now I can’t unsee it lol.”

A separate Twitter user chimed in, “How did everyone not know this it doesn’t even look remotely real.”

Should we be surprised by the simplicity of NFL Redzone’s setup? Absolutely not. But it’s still kind of bizarre to see it in this light.

Also in the world of NFL broadcasting, former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva has landed a gig with FOX Sports Deportes.

“Two-time Pro Bowler Alejandro Villanueva joins FOX Deportes as lead NFL analyst, including for Super Bowl LVII,” the statement said.
