SABOL NOT PRESENT, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN: Several award winners referenced NFL Films President Steve Sabol, who last month was diagnosed with a brain tumor and was not in attendance. NFL Films took away its biggest haul since ‘97, winning five Emmys, including three for "Hard Knocks," one for "Lombardi" and one for NFL Network's "Sound FX." ESPN Graphic Designer John Brenkus was the only winner to reference the death of Osama bin Laden, asking the crowd of TV execs for a round of applause "for bagging the bastard." Brenkus was accepting the best graphic design award for "Sport Science."
