Merrick Posted April 15, 2012 Share Posted April 15, 2012 Does anybody else have a problem with these ridiculously over-the-top ads? Frankly, I resent the fact that I'm forced to sit through them during games that air on the NBC networks.First of all, they're too graphic. Definitely not the kind of stuff that you want to see (and hear) when you're sitting in front of the TV with a beer and a plate of nachos.Second, I'm not even a smoker. This is probably what annoys me the most—I'm being preached to about a problem that I don't even have.I guess I could simply change the channel when these ads come on. At the same time, I shouldn't need to be ready to go all Quick Draw McGraw with my remote every time a game cuts to commercial. I understand that smoking/cancer is bad, and that these ads are designed to shock people into seeing that. But watching hockey is an escape for me, and I just don't think I need to look at this sort of nonsense when I'm trying to unwind and enjoy myself.
