Default NFL denies another 2A ad

The National Football League refused placement of this advertisement in the Official Super Bowl Program. Can you see anything wrong with the message the USCCA wished to present to America's football fans? Still, the league refused, without explanation, to allow this ad to appear in their program. Does that say something about what the NFL thinks about your rights or does that say something about the NFL being afraid of anti-gun groups? You decide. Check it out below…

Last year, the NFL denied Daniel Defense's commercial:

Good commercial, but not superbowl savvy. I'd also leave out the AR style rifle and replace w/ shotgun or Hunting rifle w/scope....a little less "in your face" than a type of rifle under fire by the effin' libs!
Leave the politics out of the superbowl and enjoy the game!
Cheers!

That DD commercial is anything but "in your face." They don't even show a rifle. Anyone offended by that needs serious help.

It is also not political at all. It a company advertising, nothing more.

How many lives are ruined by alcoholism and drunk drivers? How many lives have been saved by a beer? They have no issue showing Budweiser commercials.

I actually don't watch the NFL either. I do watch the Superbowl.... just for the ads and I hate commercials.

I am however happy the racing season has started. It was fun to watch Viper win its class in Daytona

The only game I watch is the SB. And that's only if I don't have anything better to do. I watch as much for the commercials as I do for the game. At least I have something to talk about around the water cooler Monday morning. But since I work by myself the conversation is kinda one sided.

I was referring to the Youtube TV ad where they show a silhouette of a ar rifle at the end of the commercial. The print ad for the superbowl is not "in your face", but still not appropriate for a sports program IMO.....unless the superbowl was being held in Texas!
Cheers!
Go Seahawks!

I was referring to the same commercial. How is it not appropriate? Does it show something wrong? Does it show something illegal? Does it promote irresponsible behavior? Does it exploit women? Oh wait, it simply advertises a product and highlights the importance of family. How awful. We need more beer commercials instead.
