The NFL rejected American Veterans (AMVETS) Super Bowl print ad. The advertisement (shown above) depicts the simple message: #PleaseStand.
An NFL spokesman said the league rejects advertising that is considered to be a "political statement."
Ironically, the NFL and ESPN have spent the last few years focusing on politics rather than sports. The NFL has engaged in shameful behavior that disgraces every American.
In response, AMVETS National Commander Marion Polk (above) said, "Freedom of speech works both ways."
Thank you for your service AMVETS!
