GoDaddy (et al) Can Go to Hell

The NFL needs to apply their "personal conduct policy" to their Super Bowl ads.

What a bunch of hypocrites. They rightly punish Ben Rapistburger for his abusive off-the-field actions, but condone ads that celebrate the mentality that leads to players' off-the-field problems in the first place: the objectification of women and sex.

And all while the kids are watching. I guess the Super Bowl is not fit for family viewing any more (and really hasn't been for several years now).

By the way, GoDaddy wasn't even the worst offender this year. No, that dubious distinction, at least in my book, goes to Pepsi Max. Jerks.

Actually I think we can blame Fox Sports for this since they are the ones that make the decisions. They rejected some commercials as being too religious, but were fine with the GoDaddy ads as they are year after year.

Not sure how much influence the NFL has over this, but they should exert what pressure they can. Next time they negotiate broadcast rights they should demand veto power on ads.

GoDaddy hosting is a joke, anyway. No sane web developer will use them.

Their shared servers typically host 20,000 sites. They are dog slow.

And their commercials are just... Weird.
