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.

The NFL is not marketing it's product to a bunch of homer fans that are already hooked, they're trying to bring in new "fans".
