WATCH: If Roy Keane was a Super Bowl pundit, it would have been absolutely spectacular

If only Roy Keane had ventured up to the commentary box for Super Bowl 50.

Anyone who tuned into BBC's coverage of Sunday night's Super Bowl clash between Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers endured the wonderfully surreal experience of Martin O'Neill trying his hand at NFL punditry.

That's right, the Republic of Ireland manager was in the commentary booth for BBC's coverage of the biggest day in the American sporting calendar giving his "expert" analysis on the match. To add to the oddness, the Derry man made the revelation that he had come to the game with his right hand man, Roy Keane, who was nowhere to be found.

We like to think Keano also brought his punditry hat to Levi's Stadium. In a perfect world he would have managed to find some obscure Sports Network, much like ESPN 8: the Ocho from Vince Vaughan's sports comedy classic Dodgeball, to give him some airtime rather than watch it as a spectator like a mere pleb. If that were to happen, it might have gone a little something like this.

Why stop at analysing the game? Surely Keane would have shared his opinion on the halftime entertainment as well.

As a football pundit, Keane always liked to break down, and often tear apart. the defensive display on show. There's no denying he would not have been impressed with what he saw from the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

The job offers should come flooding in from across the Atlantic now.

You're welcome, Roy.
