Well I just will not watch the superbowl or their ads this year. Let’s face it. If my Patriots get to the Superbowl, then the Giants will just beat them in the last minute anyway… Who needs to see that again.
Daniel Defense, a leading firearms company in the Unites States, wanted to air one of its commercials during the 2014 NFL Super Bowl. However, the ad, which subtly highlights the Second Amendment as a means to protect one’s family, was reportedly rejected by FOX because it violates NFL advertising rules.
“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,” FOX reportedly said in a statement to Daniel Defense.
Guns & Ammo isn’t buying the explanation and is making the case that the commercial doesn’t violate any rules:
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.
