NFL reportedly in ‘secret legal war’ with M.I.A. over Super Bowl middle finger

Both the NFL and NBC were left scrambling to apologize after the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show featured an obscene gesture from singer M.I.A., who joined Madonna on stage during the performance. M.I.A. looked directly into one of NBC’s cameras, raised her middle finger and said, “I don’t give a s**t” during the song “Give Me All Your Luvin.”


Apparently, the NFL is still not ready to let her off the hook.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the league has been “waging secret legal war” against M.I.A., seeking $1.5 million and a public apology. Her lawyer, Howard King, told the Reporter that M.I.A. “plans to launch a public war on the mega-powerful football league”.

“She is going to go public with an explanation of how ridiculous it was for the NFL and its fans to devote such furor to this incident,” King said, “while ignoring the genocide occurring in her home country and several other countries, topics she frequently speaks to.” M.I.A. (real name Mathangi Arulpragasam) is half-Sri Lankan.

King continued, lambasting the NFL for spending time on this issue:

“Of course, the NFL’s claimed reputation for wholesomeness is hilarious, in light of the weekly felonies committed by its stars, the bounties placed by coaches on opposing players, the homophobic and racist comments uttered by its players, the complete disregard for the health of players and the premature deaths that have resulted from same, and the raping of public entities ready to sacrifice public funds to attract teams.”

She was unscheduled entertainment (I believe, I do not know for sure.)I am guessing or speculating that Madonna had signed an ethics clause.

I believe the problem sits with Madonna.

And this entertainer, insignificant entertainer, made bad choices and continues to extend her 15 minutes of fame.
Janet Jackson was already famous when she gifted us with the titty shot.


The NFL screwed up when they hired Madonna.
History escapes memory and I was at Coca-Cola when Madonna had a World Premier Pepsi commercial. Pepsi allowed artist discretion and when the commercial played for the first time - it was the last time.
Pepsi could not distance PepsiCo fast enough from Madonna.

What do I know?

Snap, placement, kick by Hartley, and it is — AND IT'S GOOD!
IT'S GOOD! IT'S GUH-HUH-HOOD! Ha ha ha! Pigs have flown! Hell has frozen over! The Saints are on their way to the Super Bowl!

Why they just get rid of the Half Time Show. No one watches anyway. Or wait some does. I just don't know who.
