The NFL's tone-deaf marketing

The NFL keeps showing ads to get people hyped up about the season, and they must assume that we're nitwits or something. Or more likely, they're nitwits.

They make a big deal out of Aaron Rodgers' "hail mary" play against the Lions, first of all. Okay, if you're a Packers fan, yay for you. Let's see if you know who Bart Starr is. But if you're a fan of the other 31 teams, you look at that play and you know that Rodgers was handed a gift play on a completely phantom penalty on the previous snap. That play was a gift to one of the golden boy teams against a downtrodden team. And that's supposed to get me excited? It just annoys me.

And then they show a montage, and one of those plays is the Chiefs-Raiders game last year where the Raiders were given 16 extra plays after the clock had expired. The montage shows the play where the Raiders finally "scored". Again, if you're a Raiders fan you're probably sleepily looking through your crack haze and trying to applaud. But if you're a fan of the other 31 teams, you know that the end of the game was ruined by the officiating, leading to a change in the winner.

Come on, NFL. There are legitimate good plays that were not travesties. Show some of those.

Any fan of the NFL doesn't care about what advertising agency they hired to promote the up coming 2018 season. You're either into it or not

There was a game between Green Bay and Jacksonville that the refs blew EIGHTEEN calls that went GBs way. The sport is a ****ing joke.

The Chiefs were going to play rough on the last play and the refs knew it. That’s how they called most of the games. I recall all those penalties were legit. Now if the refs were going to call it at that particular time just because I can agree on that. The refs decided that outcome. They should’ve just let them play.

Whew!

And here I thought this thread was going to be about a demand for more social justice cause advertising, freedom of expression, and freeing the enslaved children at the border demands!

That will likely air in September....

The NFL assumes that you have a very short memory.

They gave the Raiders extra play after extra play.

How many downs are there?

10 if you're the Raiders.

But there are people on this board who insist I'm crazy for pointing that shit out.

Sit down, shut up, drink your Bud Light and eat your Doritos. Don't question anything, be a good drone and buy our NFL products. It's become less of a sport and more of an entertainment event.
