Bad Idea Fantasy Football Ads: NFL.com’s Use Of Jamaal Charles

Ouch. This probably wasn’t the most tasteful choice. Using the image of a seriously injured NFL player being carted off the field to pimp your fantasy football leagues? No bueno. But then again, the NFL essentially looks at the players in the league as disposable commodities anyway, so I guess no harm, no foul. At least as far as the NFL is concerned. Jamaal Charles might think otherwise, but what’s he going to do? Hobble over to NFL headquarters on his busted-up ACL and complain?
