Courtesy of Jim West’s blog, here’s the 30-second Super Bowl commercial Fox was unwilling to broadcast because of its content (in spite of the fact that the producing group was willing to pay $3 million to air it).

    Boy, this is such a bummer. Would have been a great commercial. Not sure why Doritos was allowed to air the Church commercial last year then, unless this was just over the line… haha

    Why do you think this commercial was rejected? Do you agree or disagree with the decision of the NFL to ban religious messages in the black paint under the eyes?

      I assume that Fox did not want to deal with the controversy that would ensue if they ran it.

      Do you agree or disagree with the decision of the NFL to ban religious messages in the black paint under the eyes?

      I think that the NFL has the legal right to have such a policy. However, as one who believes in Jesus Christ, I wish that everyone – whether in the NFL or not – desired to honor Him.

    Would you support an athlete who put a Quranic verse number, the words ‘Hail Satan’, ‘Vote Republican’ or ‘The NFL Sucks’ under their eyes?

    Why should players be allowed to proselytize (advertise) their message under their eyes, for free, when everyone else has to pay for ad time?

    • Mike Gantt says:

      As I said before, the NFL has a legal right to formulate and enforce whatever lawful policy they want on such issues. I have no say-so over such things.

      I only expressed a personal wish that every person – whether associated with the NFL or not – acknowledged Jesus Christ, our Creator and Lord.
