Lets face it, the NFL halftime show was offensive to NFL fans on so many levels. Does the league really think that we want to see a geriatric ex-singer pretend it’s still the 1980s by trying to do dance move she can no longer do, all while doing a very poor job of lip-syncing her lyrics? I can’t imagine how anyone thought this was a good idea.
Making matters worse, was that one of the “guests” of show decided to give all of America a nice 1-finger salute right in the middle the show. We don’t have right to a rights to a picture of the act, but if you want to see it feel free to click this link.
What is most annoying about this is that I’d like to think that the NFL would have learned it’s lesson already. Remember the Janet Jackson “wardrobe malfunction?” I’m sure you do. I do. So why is it that the NFL seems to forgotten already?
I understand that the NFL is in a bit of a tough position because of the diversity of its fan base. There is no musical act that will pleases all it’s fans. Country, Hip Hop, Rap, Rock, Pop, there are NFL fans that prefer each. Thats ok. I get that they are fighting a losing battle no matter what they choose. But there’s a difference between accepting that and just giving up.
This mess just ridiculously bad. Yet somehow I don’t think the NFL learned anything from this mistake.
