Have you seen the Super Offensive Super Bowl ad banned by the NFL?

My patience with the NFL is wearing thin. From not allowing Rush Limbaugh to be part of a ownership group, to the inane rules no one can understand, to the often mediocre product on the field, and oddly enough, the increasingly sanitized and awful Super Bowl ads, to this bit of PC

By the way, the company offered to switch the company logo that appears at the end of the spot for an American flag. The NFL still ruled the ad “offensive”

According to a statement from FOX to Daniel Defense, “Unfortunately, we cannot accept your commercial in football/Super Bowl spots due to the rules the NFL itself has set into place for your company’s category.”

The NFL’s Advertising Policy addresses several Prohibited Advertising Categories, including guidelines for ads featuring alcohol, video games, movies, prescription drugs, and, of course, firearms.

The firearms portion of the NFL’s Prohibited Advertising Categories states:

“5. Firearms, ammunition or other weapons are prohibited; however, stores that sell firearms and ammunitions (e.g., outdoor stores and camping stores) will be permitted, provided they sell other products and the ads do not mention firearms, ammunition or other weapons.”

According to these guidelines, Daniel Defense’s Super Bowl commercial does not violate NFL policy for two reasons:

  • Daniel Defense has a brick-and-mortar store, where they sell products other than firearms such as apparel.
  • The commercial itself does not mention firearms, ammunition or weaponry.

While Daniel Defense’s commercial does not mention firearms, it does include a logo of their DDM4 rifle at the very end.

When the NFL denied the ad, Daniel Defense immediately offered to replace the DDM4 logo with an American flag and/or the words “Shall not be infringed.”

The NFL replied with another non-negotiable denial.

Allowing teams to shill for ObamaCare, though? That is OK of course, but an ad that talks about basic liberties and responsibilities? OFFENSIVE!

 

Doug’s NFL picks Week 5

Week 4 9-6

Season Standings 40-23

Thursday Night

Bills 2-2 at Browns 2-2

Sunday Games 1:00

The winner will be 3-2, which in today’s NFL means they will be in the Playoff hunt. The Bills are fresh off a thumping of the Ravens, and the Browns have won two straight after trading Trent Richardson and benching Brandon Weeden. Make it three in a row tonight

Pats 4-0 at Bengals 2-2

The Pats just keep winning, the Bengals just keep finding ways to set NFL unis back twenty years. Pats win

Lions 3-1 at Pack 1-2

This might be the year the Lions finally break out, but not this week, Packers win

Ravens 2-2 at Dolphins 3-1 The Dolphins got whacked Monday night in New Orleans, but that happens a lot on that city, this week the Ravens get mugged in Miami

Seahawks 4-0 at Colts 3-1

Best game of the week? It could well be. A Superbowl preview? how the Hell would I know I am only 17-14 in the last two weeks. But, Colts win a close one

Saints 4-0 at Bears 3-1

The Saints hope to go undefeated, the Bears will crush that hope

Eagles 1-3 at NY Giants 0-4

The Eagles looked great in the first half of the first game, but since then their new fast offense has averaged a loss every 18 seconds. Giants win

Chiefs 4-0 at Titans 3-1

Andy Reid is on track for coach of the year, and the Chiefs win a close contest. Is it too much to ask the Titans to bust out their old Oiler unis this week? 

Jags 0-4 at Rams 1-3

The Rams are bad, but the Jags are uglier than their helmets. Rams win

Sunday Games 4:00

Panthers 1-3 at Cards 2-2

Can I be honest here? No one will watch this game, no one cares, but Panthers will win any way

Broncos 4-0 at Cowboys 2-2

The Cowboys are on their win one, lose one formula headed to another 8-8 year. Peyton Manning is on a different level. 

Sunday Night

Texans 2-2 at Niners 2-2

Two teams that should have better records. Two teams that REALLY need a win. Hmmm, I will go with the Niners

Chargers 2-2 at Raiders 1-3

The good news for Oakland is that the A’s are in the playoffs. The bad news for Oakland is they get their starting QB back. The worse news for Oakland? That QB is Terrell Pryor. Chargers win

Monday Night

Jets 2-2 at Falcons 1-3

The Jets are 2-2, headed for 3-13, the Falcons are 1-3 headed for 11-5. Falcons roll!

 

Doug’s NFL picks Week 1

I vow to kick Ed Daley’s backside this year! Here we go

Broncos Bash Ravens

Pats Pound Bills

Seahawks soar past Panthers

Da Bears Best Da Bengals

Browns Batter Dolphins

Lions Maul Vikes

Colts Clobber Raiders

Chiefs Chop Jags 

Bucs Blast Jets

Saints Stun Falcons

Steelers  stomp the Titans

Rams Roast Cards

Niners Pound the Pack

Cowboys corral the Giants

Redskins rap the Eagles

Chargers charbroil the Texans

So we differ in five games, whoever does better (ME) in those wins the week

 

Thuggery you say?

A Nod to the Gods compares the bad behavior of NBA players and NFL players, and comes up with some shocking results

36 have been accused of spousal abuse

7 have been arrested for fraud

19 have been accused of writing bad checks

117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses

3 have done time for assault

71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit

14 have been arrested on drug-related charges

8 have been arrested! for shoplifting

21 currently are defendants in lawsuits, and 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year !

OK, time to vote kids, which way do you vote?

If you said NBA, you are wrong

However if you said the NFL, you are still wrong

That abysmal record belongs not to the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, or any sports leagues. The real thugs do not dunk, run for TD’s steal bases, hit home runs or skate in hockey arenas. They inhabit Congress. And if you think that is a scary stat, just think about this. The people these folks are supposed to represent, keep electing them.
