The business and politics of the Super Bowl

  1. Feb 5, 2010 #1
    What do you think about advocacy ads during the Super Bowl?

    I don't like them because the Super Bowl is supposed to be an event that ought to unite all Americans, and advocacay ads, such as anti-abortion or pro-choice, anti-gay or airing gay dating site, etc. divide us rather than to unite us.

    Your thoughts, please.

    I think it means those advocacy groups have way, way too much money.

    The country's so divided now, the Super Bowl is one thing 'reds' and 'blues' can enjoy, even enjoy together! I wish stinking politics were kept out of it.

    IMO, people don't care enough about political issues during the Super Bowl for such ads to be effective.
