So there is a Yahoo contributor who writes that the Focus on the Family ad aired during the Pats / Broncos game on Saturday has some baggage:
I find this line (the entire line) to be plain stupid. It is an ad- PERIOD. It doesn’t matter what it promotes, it is an ad. For crying out loud it was far better than yet another erectile dysfunction medication ad.
It was shady for Focus On The Family to end with a call for donations.
It is a fucking ad!!!! That’s what ads do,they are meant to get you to cough up some of your money. Whether it is for a NGO or a pharmaceutical company or chips or a candidate for office.
The NFL should reject such ads and give the viewers what they tuned in to see: All football, all the time.
I actually agree but I don’t see it happening since the networks need to pay the NFL upwards of 1 BILLION dollars to carry the games per the new contract that runs till 2022.
As far as I know it’s legal to purchase ad space and display advertisements like the Focus On The Family commercial.
Mr. Riggio you probably should have opened with that line and left it at that.
