Feingold Changes Ad After Complaint from NFL

Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., just got sacked. He’s changing a campaign ad after the NFL complained about it. The ad portrays sequences of football players celebrating after scores and goes on to accuse Republican Ron Johnson of having begun "excessive Russ Feingold, Ron Johnson, NFL, ad, Randy Mosscelebration" because he’s ahead in the polls, The Hill reports.

Most of the players in the ad don’t appear to be from the NFL, but one player will come through loud and clear for Green Bay Packers fans. That’s wide receiver Randy Moss, shown pretending to moon the crowd in Green Bay during a game in 2005. The ad also includes audio from Fox NFL commentator Joe Buck calling Moss’ outburst "a disgusting act."

The NFL apparently didn’t appreciate the unflattering presentation. “We are making an edit to the ad to accommodate the NFL’s concerns," Feingold campaign spokesman John Kraus told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
