The censorous bastards of the NFL are at it again. They found it to offensively violent for NFL football fans. After viewing the ad its hard to understand why this is banned and caveman crushing dinosaurs are permitted.
Maybe there is an explanation, as offered by The Gun Nut. David E. Petzal in his Field and Stream article.
After the rejection, Daniel Defense offered to replace the logo—a gun—with a slogan, but the NFL said sorry, no way, again.
It’s possible that this is nothing more than hypocrisy. But the real reason, I think, is that the NFL is trying to protect its investments. The oversized guy who crashes his $150,000 custom SUV into a house and breaks down the door with his fists to strangle the family inside may be someone’s number one draft pick, and all those millions his team spent on him would go right down the drain if some terrified homeowner shot him in self-defense.
And we can’t have that now, can we? It’s…un-American.
Makes sense to me.
