Church Super Bowl Parties are GO

The NFL has bowed to the pressure. After a PR nightmare resulting from it's decision to not allow churches to show the Super Bowl on anything larger than 55", the NFL has decided to let churches hold their Super Bowl parties.

The league looked really stupid, I think, when it decided to allow sports bars to show the game on whatever they wanted, but not churches. It showed a lot of people exactly what the NFL valued, and who they wanted for customers.

They didn't think about the fact that many people have church on Sunday evenings. They didn't think about the fact that if churches had their parties, people would be watching who wouldn't otherwise.

Or maybe they did, and this reversal is a bit more pragmatic than people are thinking it was to begin with.
