BTW why is the NFL allowed to chose who's commercials run on the network. Talk about power...

Huh?  Yeah, its all about power.  Corporations have power.  Is this news to you?When you're the NFL, networks throw money at you to show your product on TV.  And with that comes the right for the NFL to pick and choose what ads it wants or doesn't want.Seems pretty anti-American to tell a corporation what it can or cannot do....

Of course it's not news, but it's noteworthy that the NFL has more power than the network that distributes it. That's not the usual setup for networks and the show they air and it demonstrates that corporation's ability to influence outside of the typical reach of most companies. Kudos to them, and they seem to be concerned with using that power responsibly whether you'd agree or not with the decision they made. At least they don't seem to be advocating any social agenda like the Grammys and such.

Please wait…
