There is a long list of do's and don't for the 58 player prospects on Draft Day. The in home, always on video, is not supposed to see the wrong drinks, shirts, language, etc in the feed.

Apparently in past years a Sasquatch cameo at a player’s draft party, in an effort to wrangle free advertising for non-NFL partner Jack Link’s Beef Jerky rankled a few sponsors.

Me? Well I'd consider their list a challenge to see how many subtle references I could get past their censors. But then I can't throw a football ten feet so that won't happen.

if they are expected to adhere to professional behavior they should be compensated professionally

Hah....I volunteered for the SB when it was last in New Orleans and we had to attend a fashion / cloths do's and don'ts where the strut out models wearing acceptable clots and branding, and those showing what was prohibited.

We couldn't wear anything showing a logo other than NFL. No duck head or docker logo showing on kackis, no branding on hats, socks, etc. We couldn't even show NFL team logos (Saints)....and we weren't paid

I don’t think you can only blame the League. This has to do with TV partners not wanting to give free advertising.
It’s the same reason why you see logos blurred out or taped over in reality shows.

They are in their personal homes, not a league office. If the NFL sees something they don’t like, let them blur it, otherwise go pound sand.

It kind of like a firefighter rushing into a huge house fire, only to start complaining that the electrical sockets aren’t installed to code. Perhaps worry about taking care of the big issues first.

NFL personnel: Perhaps we should delay the draft. We cannot perform an adequate scouting job or conduct a proper draft room under these extraordinary circumstances.

NFL: We’re doing the draft, and kindly shut up about your measly complaints or we’ll fine you.

NFL personnel: fine. We’ll set up a modest off-site draft room in a large area while maintaining proper social distancing.

NFL: Like heck you will. You’ll conduct your draft from your homes, and you must arrange all of your personal spaces to conform to NFL advertising contracts.

Goodell is almost showing the same level of blind ignorance that the CEO of my company is exhibiting over this whole situation.

How would you feel if you were in charge of a large corporation, say Coke, for instance, and you spent $500k on advertisement during the draft, but several coaches/GMs on this telecast are shown drinking Pepsi?

How would you feel if you're Microsoft and you spent millions with the NFL annually, but Amazon Kindles are plastered on the TV throughout the telecast?

It is a lot more than just a sponsorship/advertisement agreement; it is also a partnership agreement, and it is also in the player/coaches/GMs best interests for the league to have satisfied sponsors as well, since their respective teams benefit from it.

I think to its against FCC regulations to provide free sponsorship. A network must be compensated. Peyton Manning caught flack from the F.C.C when he said that he was going to celebrate his Superbowl victory over the Panthers by drinking Budweiser.

It’s not the same. It’s televised on ESPN and ABC. Disney doesn’t want any companies or products getting free ad space.

I wouldn’t rearrange anything in my house unless they started paying my mortgage for me. The NFL is the one that forced the teams to conduct this through their homes. Anything the NFL doesn’t like in a home they can feel free to blur out.

What if, like the coaches and GMs, you "are" the NFL?
