Sh*thole NFL rejects "Please Stand" Super Bowl program ad from 'AMVET' veterans group

The shithole NFL has rejected a "Please Stand" Super Bowl program ad from the 'AMVET' veterans group. (AMVETS, which is also known as American Veterans, is the most inclusive Congressionally-charted veterans service organization open to representing the interests of 20 million veterans and their families. They are veterans serving veterans since 1944.)



“Freedom of speech works both ways. We respect the rights of those who choose to protest as these rights are precisely what our members have fought - and in many cases died - for. Please support our mission.” Marion Polk, AMVETS National Commander wrote.

Polk then wrote NFL commissioner Roger Goodell:

Veterans are good for more than just military aircraft flyovers, photo opportunities during halftime, or props to sell camouflage-style NFL apparel; although, the NFL's stance on not allowing the veterans' unfiltered voice to be heard says otherwise...

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy defended the league's decision to ban the American Veterans' advertisement noting that the game day program "is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl."

"It's never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement," McCarthy told Army Times.

Why the United Services Automobile Association (USAA) continues to advertise with this org is anyone's guess.

Boycott NFL sponsor Chunky Maxx until it cleans up its flag act.
