Michael Irvin will no longer be one of the faces of NFL Network's Super Bowl coverage this week following an incident he had with a woman in the lobby of his Arizona hotel on Sunday night...

Irvin told the Dallas Morning News the encounter happened at a hotel in Glendale -- the site of this weekend's SB LVII -- after he had returned to the property following a night out on the town.

Irvin says he spoke with the woman for roughly 45 seconds in the lobby -- and described it all as an almost entirely non-physical interaction.

The woman, though, according to the DMN, launched a complaint about Irvin's actions -- leading to the NFLN pulling him from their coverage on Tuesday.

Irvin says he's been left "perplexed" by it all -- explaining to the outlet it was such an innocuous conversation, he hardly even remembered it.

"When I got back after going out … I came into the lobby, and I talked to somebody," Irvin said. "I talked to this girl. I don't know her, and I talked to her for about 45 seconds."

"We shook hands. Then, I left. … That’s all I know."

He added, "I don’t really recall that conversation, to tell you the truth. We were out drinking. It was just a friendly conversation. ‘What’s up?’ I don’t even know. … I am totally perplexed."

An NFL Network exec confirmed to TMZ Sports Irvin will not be a part of the station's SB coverage this week. But, it remains unclear what the woman alleges Irvin said or did during their meetup -- as Irvin adamantly denied any wrongdoing.

"What law did I break?" Irvin said according to the Dallas Morning News. "There was definitely nothing physical. … That’s honestly all that happened. Nobody was in my room. It was a 45-second conversation in the lobby, a handshake and we left. … I don’t know. I don’t know what this is, and it’s running me crazy."

Yet this clown was on a panel the other day about the NFL and a race problem. Bro, don’t fricking hit women. Raise your kids.

This unfortunate incident has them moving in the right direction. It is asinine how each network lines up 5-6 guys behind an elongated desk for a panel discussion. And then throw a woman in there just because she's a woman, one who never played a down of organized football in her life. What a waste of money.

Why does the NFL hate black people? It’s systemic, clearly. It’s almost Valentine’s Day, February of love anybody?

I can't recall exact correlation but recent JRE something to tune of 'The number of women who lie is equal to number of abusive men/sits. Both occur but are rare.

Not a fan of Michael Irvin, but this "automatically believe all women" is starting to get beyond stupid. I'll wait for a video.

Which, be offended, but move on. I'm banking on this being some form of "sexual harassment"

When you or anybody you know did something bad, were you, or they, that same type of person 20, 30 years later?

"I was just holding the cocaine for my cousin". I'm hesitant to believe Irvin because he's already got in trouble before and lied about the events. But surely their was a witness or camera that get to the bottom of this. Rich, boisterous former athlete after a night of drinking could have just asked her to go upstairs and she said no then she gets upset about it. Though it is somewhat surprising that NFL Network has already decided to pull him, maybe they already know something we don't

You would think that the network would do a lil due diligence (look at camera footage) before punishing him.

Let's hope it's not some BS low res cameras where you can't tell a plant from a bell hop.

Networks and companies jump to women's aid immediately nowadays. Then they apologize if it happens to be a minuscule incident or just a straight up lie.

Surely there is a camera or two in the lobby and this issue can be reviewed and dealt with swiftly.
