National sports organizations may be private (not quite, they are a franchise), but they are still open to public review. While they are not violating some law of capitalism, their advertising policies violate FCC laws, as pointed out in the NRA strip. When combined with the advertising polices of some of the major networks, (NBC's socialist agenda in particular,(progressives)) the suppression of information becomes an issue.
An even larger issue is why are they free from restrictions that apply to common folk. Steroid, HGH, and CNS stimulants, player injury protection, different set of criminal laws use as an examples. Watching genetic anomalies perform the same feats year after year, blurs oblivion. No wonder people find the half time more entertaining.
sorry for the rant, but I have to go now, Time to set my Las Vegas Book for next week.
