NFL Turns down Vet group’s anti-kneeling print ad

The NFL is back in hot water over their decision to reject an ad that was going to appear in the print program for the Superbowl, because they say the anti-kneeling message could be offensive.  Here is the ad:

Here is what NFL VP of Communications Brian McCarthy told the Daily Caller:

“The Super Bowl game program is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl,” McCarthy explained. “It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement.”

“The NFL has long supported the military and veterans and will again salute our service members in the Super Bowl with memorable on-field moments that will be televised as part of the game.”

Did the NFL make the wrong call?  What say you?
