American Veterans is a  a non-profit group started by World War II servicemen. They leapt at the opportunity to advertise in the official 2018 Super Bowl program. They were  shocked to find that their pitch had been rejected based on language within the ad. Two words asking everyone to stand shot down the ad for the group. Now the NFL is saying the two words are a “political statement” when they’ve allowed players to make disgusting political statements every game? Isn’t the kneeling protest a political statement? We think so!

VP of Communications for the NFL  Brian McCarthy said, “The Super Bowl game program is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl,” McCarthy explained. “It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement.”

The controversial words? “Please stand.”

This is one more reason to boycott the NFL!
