NFL Betting Lines – NFL Players Commercial Rejected by CBS

Posted by Marcello Messina on 2/1/2011 9:44:51 PM

The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) claimed today that broadcasting channel CBS had rejected their Collective Bargaining Agreement-related NFL betting lines commercial.

(12-4) Pittsburgh Steelers vs. (10-6) Green Bay Packers
Live from Cowboys Stadium – TX
Kickoff: 6:29 PM EST Sunday, February 6, 2011

The CBS College Sports Network rejected a NFLPA commercial that was supposed to air during the college football all-star game this weekend.

The television network would not air the commercial because it was related to the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, and CBS obviously did not want to be involved in a league dispute in any form or fashion.

The NFLPA’s Assistant Executive Director George Atallah said that, “Once [CBS] saw it and realized it had a CBA-oriented message, they decided they wouldn’t air it.”


The minute-long ad shows clips of empty NFL betting lines stadiums with players saying, “let us play” and fans stating, “Let them play.” The commercial also includes a union website where viewers are encouraged to sign a petition.
