Night net null Anthony "Booger" McFarland was added to ESPN's "Monday Night Football" crew this season as a sideline reporter, but he's much more unique than your typical on-field correspondent.While most sideline reporters stand on the field in order to provide instant commentary and game updates, McFarland observes the action from an entire mobile crane. McFarland's mobile seat has been dubbed as "The Booger Mobile," and so far it has not been a hit with fans.

But at least there's a television attached to the back so you don't completely miss out on important plays. Here are some additional details on the device, via the Los Angeles Times from the preseason:McFarland will have the best seat at Fedex Field on Thursday when the Washington Redskins host the New York Jets in an exhibition game. He’ll be riding in an elevated chair that will be positioned over the line of scrimmage for each snap, giving him a God’s-eye view of the action. He’ll be transported up and down the sideline by a cart equipped with two outreached arms, one for McFarland’s seat and the other for a camera operator."I’ll be able to see and hear up close the footwork, motion, things that are being said, the audibles, things you can’t see from the booth," said McFarland.He’s not simply in a moving seat. He’s surrounded by a desk that features computer and video monitors, allowing him to call up statistics and replays to enhance his coverage. And it isn’t just his raised seat that separates him from traditional sideline or field reporters.McFarland's cart has certainly brought an interesting element to the broadcast itself, but fans at the stadiums during "Monday Night Football" games have been complaining about it for weeks.That's nice of ESPN to give fans who paid for seats a TV to watch while Booger gets a better view (from @jsell2110)— Busted Coverage (@bustedcoverage) October 16, 2018In an interview with Busted Coverage, Packers fan Jonathan Sell explained some of the complications of the cart during ESPN's Week 6 broadcast."The cart literally followed the line of scrimmage so it blocked everyone's frontal view of the game," Sell told Busted Coverage. "The crowd was not happy. Every time that cart came by everyone was screaming at it."Sell said he, and the fans around him, weren't able to watch Mason Crosby's game-winning field goal in person because McFarland's cart was blocking it.When contacted by Sporting News, ESPN provided the following statement: "The unique field-level perspective that the cart provides is an enhancement to our 'Monday Night Football' coverage. It is constantly moving up and down the sideline throughout the game, rarely in one spot for an extended period of time. The cart is also equipped

with a large monitor so fans can see the game telecast."ESPN also clarified that the cart is the same footprint as sideline camera carts that most productions use. The cart was tested and approved by all parties before being implemented.If you look up sideline camera carts, you'll see similar devices such as the one McFarland is using. So, if you're headed to an Night net game on Monday night at some point this season, prepare to see "The Booger Mobile" because it doesn't appear to be going anywhere.
