NFL Refuses Las Vegas Superbowl Spot

The Mayor of Las Vegas is "hotter than finger grease" mad over the NFL's decision not to air a spot promoting Las Vegas. The NFL has an agreement with ABC and can veto any spot having to do with sports betting.

"The league office decided that the commercial was not in our best interest," said NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy . "The NFL has a long-standing policy that prohibits the acceptance of any message that makes reference to or mention of sports betting."

However, people who have seen the spot claim there is no reference to gambling and cannot understand the decision.
