Pallone Wants Congressional Hearing on Fantasy Football
If you found the unending, repetitive and relentless stream of fantasy football commercials that flooded this weekend’s National Football League broadcasts annoying, you weren’t alone.
On Monday, New Jersey Democrat Frank Pallone Jr. called for a congressional hearing into the relationship between the NFL and the fantasy leagues that clogged airwaves during this season’s opening weekend.
“Anyone who watched a game this weekend was inundated by commercials for fantasy sports websites, and it’s only the first week of the NFL season,” Pallone said in a statement. “These sites are enormously popular, arguably central to the fans’ experience, and professional leagues are seeing the enormous profits as a result. Despite how mainstream these sites have become, though, the legal landscape governing these activities remains murky and should be reviewed.”
In the mind of every progressive is the nagging feeling that somewhere in America, people might be enjoying themselves.
