What is it about football?

Why don't football announcers ever use possessives? It drives me insane. He's flagged for grabbing the facemask of Smith. The ball slipped from the hand of MacMillian. The doctors are examining the ankle of Jackson. In the stands, we can see the wife of O'Mally watching the replay of Jones intercepting the pass of Maldonado.

What is wrong with these people? The grammar of them needs some work.
