Jamaal Charles Ad Brings Minor Controversy

An advertisement that was displayed on for a little while showed a picture of Jamaal Charles being carted off the field with a torn ACL with the caption, “Injury ruined your fantasy season?”


The ad was taken off the website within 24 hours of originally being posted and according to NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello, “was a mistake and was taken down immediately”.


It was a poor idea from the beginning and not in good taste to try and use a players’ misfortune as a marketing ploy.


A picture of the ad can be seen here.
