    No problem with it. I usually don't watch the halftime show for the Super Bowl, but I did see some of this and didn't see anything to be offended by. I'm not really a fan of half-time shows in general.

    I enjoyed the game, and was glad to see the Chiefs win one for Andy Reid, and the Hunt family. Lamar Hunt, founder of the KC Chiefs, and major figure in founding the AFL, is also the man who coined the name Super Bowl.

    CHRISTIAN ACTIVIST TO SUE NFL OVER SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW, SAYS 'PORNOGRAPHY WAS PUMPED INTO THE HOMES OF GOD-FEARING PEOPLE'

    "I think we ought to sue," he said. "Would that halftime show, would that have been rated PG? Were there any warnings that your 12-year-old son – whose hormones are just starting to operate – was there any warning that what he was going to see might cause him to get sexually excited?" He also asked: "Could I go into a courtroom and say, 'viewing what you put on that screen put me in danger of hellfire?"
    Sounds like SNL's Church Lady. Mercy, the last thing the world wants is sexual excitement in a twelve year old.

    If I remember back that far, all I needed was a stiff breeze to get me sexually excited.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Same could be said for Formula 1 grid girls or hat female model in the banned Protein World tube ad. What's the difference?

    I see it a bit differently. As you say, American football handegg is not even played in most of the world. So handegg fans from all over the world follow NFL and watch the Superbowl. On the other hand, while UEFA Champions League is the top club team competition, there are competitions like that in every confederation, since football is played all over the world. And in addition to each confederation's version of Champions League, there are a myriad of leagues and tournaments one can follow and watch. Not to mention national team competitions like the World Cup.

    And that's just the Premier League.
    So in light of all the football one can be watching all the time, Champions League getting this viewership is actually quite impressive. And that without even having people watching for the ads.


    So that shows how effective NFL marketing is.
    Oh it is incredibly effective. I am not denying that. It's just that comparison with CL does not really hold water.

    That heavily tattooed guy from the meme (he is in Maroon 5 I believe?) is very scantily dressed and nobody cares. It's a double standard. Like how islamofeminist mayor of London only banned the Protein World ads with female model in a bikini, and not the one with the bare-chested male model.

    and yes, this was vastly different than the cheerleaders.
    How so?

    For one thing, J Lo and Shakira were celebrating and cheering themselves.
    So what? Is it automatically wrong to be a supporting act? Feminism is weird ...
