Hah that's funny. BUT I see where the nfl is coming from. They don't anything else along those lines and people are stupid and easily offended.

Next the liberals will refer to looters as undocumented shoppers!

Yank a perfectly good sponsor off the air over semantics and a figure of speech that you don't understand.

But the guy who mercilessly beat his wife and dragged her around by her hair just gets a two-game suspension.

Way to go, NFL.
Are you kidding me?
Wow. The NFL is more backwards than I thought. I mean just wow. I hate that we live in a society where everyone is so scared they may offend someone that we have to run around censoring every little thing. Don't get me started.

Once you open the door to activism it's open. You can't pick and chose who finds something offensive and telling someone their gripe is absurd is just doubling down on offending them.


The most dangerous illness to affect mankind resides within the mind.

Der Fuhrer bans Saints Slap Ya Mama Red Zone!

Slap Ya Mama says NFL banned its Saints red zone ads amidst domestic violence concerns | Saints | The New Orleans Advocate — New Orleans, Louisiana
Cox Sports Television has told the Cajun food products company Slap Ya Mama that its in-game red zone promotion seen recently during broadcasts of Saints preseason contests at St. Louis on Aug. 8 and against Tennessee on Aug. 15 will be canceled due to concerns over the group’s name, according to a news release from Slap Ya Mama on Saturday.

Furthermore, the NFL is prohibiting all virtual signage from remaining preseason games.

Slap Ya Mama’s communique said the company’s advertising representative — Walker & Sons Inc. — received an email from Cox Media Louisiana Director of Sales Marc Leunissen informing them that “in light of the domestic violence issues facing the NFL, (the league) instructed CST (to) pull the Slap Ya Mama logo from our enhancements in the last (preseason) game,” which is Thursday in New Orleans against Baltimore. Walker & Sons says it believes the NFL told Cox Media to do this Monday.

Prior to Saturday’s news, Baltimore running back Ray Rice received a two-game suspension in the wake of a Feb. 15 arrest on accusations that he attacked and knocked out then-fiancée Janay Palmer during an argument at an Atlantic City hotel. Video footage that appeared online showed Rice dragging Palmer out of an elevator as she was apparently unconscious. Palmer — who was also arrested as a result of the row in Atlantic City — is now married to Rice.

Regardless, on Thursday, the NFL’s office sent a memo to all league teams announcing that effective immediately and for the rest of the preseason Commissioner Roger Goodell had banned all virtual signage such as the Slap Ya Mama promotion, which had been coming on screen whenever the ball first got within 20 yards of the end zone in the Saints’ exhibitions on Cox Sports Television.

I'm no one.
Who are you?

I heard that there's a new West Virginia barbeque sauce called "Rape yo' Sista/Momma." Clearly regional sensibilities have to be attended to by the NFL. If we don't find domestic violence a problem in LA, why not incest in the Appalachians?

Come on guys, this isn't even a close call.

Yes, the name is offensive to people who have been out in the sun too long and have a football team in Washington!
