    Football Fans Are Going To Hate The NFL's New On-Field Advertising
    By Emmett Knowlton 20 hours ago

    If you watched Thursday night's Ravens vs. 49ers preseason football game, you probably noticed the awful on-field advertising any time either team got in the end zone.

    According to BizJournals , Toyota is now the "exclusive auto partner" of the Niners as part of a multimillion dollar deal. Part of the agreement is that Toyota will sponsor the red zone — the area between the 20-yard line and the end zone — at San Francisco's brand new Levi's Stadium, meaning a massive, distracting graphic will appear on the screen any time a team reaches that section of the field.

    Luckily, Toyota's red-zone advertising will show up only on the local, KPIX broadcast of preseason games; it is not a national deal. Still, you have to imagine that this is a glimpse of the future, and one that NFL fans aren't going to be particularly pleased about...

    One of these days the NFL will find a way of becoming profitable. A daunting, almost unachievable task, but I have faith.

    I wouldn't mind if they just painted the ad on the field... Like a small badge on each 35 yd line. Or a company logo badge in the endzone. But that example in the link is distracting and annoying.

    Taking up a fourth or a fifth of the entire field IS ridiculous, I thought it would be less than that.

    They have had advertising logo's on the field during preseason the last couple of years.

    Eventually the uniforms will look like race car driver's suits.

    Hmmm....That could open up all kinds of possibilities for advertising in Colorado and Washington State.
