Veterans Group Says NFL Censored Pro-National Anthem #PleaseStand Super Bowl Ad

Posted by M. C. on January 23, 2018

The NFL is too busy pretending to be concerned with concussion/head trauma rates, domestic violence convictions and doing what the DHS/military money people want to worry about vets and players trying to remember why they should stand or sit.

The short answer is not US, just U$.

AMVETS officials are saying that the National Football League censored their TV advertisement because it criticized the league’s widespread protests against the country during the playing of the national anthem.

The nation’s largest veterans service organization was approached by the NFL to place an ad during the big game this year but when AMVETS submitted the ad containing the hashtag “#PleaseStand,” the NFL rejected it, according to the Army Times.

The ad, projected to cost the group $30,000, also featured veterans saluting the flag and ended with information on how to donate to the charitable organization.

AMVETS National Commander Marion Polk reported that the NFL rejected the ad but did not give a reason for the decision.
