Marty Daniels - "Maybe I Should Throw The Challenge Flag"
Marty Daniels of Daniels Defense talked with Cam Edwards yesterday about the NFL's rejection of the Daniels Defense Superbowl ad.
Daniels discussed how they approached the Fox affiliate in Atlanta about running their ad during the Superbowl and how the NFL responded with an unequivocal no even after Daniels offered to remove the company's log. He noted that the local NBC affiliate in Georgia ran their ad during last year's Superbowl with some hesitancy but they ran it.
Daniels says he is a bit amazed at the response the NFL's rejection of his company's ad has generated. He has heard from a number of people who are outraged at the sheer hypocrisy of the NFL and wonder what happened to their country.
He concludes with a bit of humor saying maybe he ought to throw the challenge flag and ask the NFL to review the "ruling on the field".
Lest it be forgotten, the NFL allowed ads from Mayor Bloomberg's Illegal Mayors during the 2012 and 2013 Superbowls.
