    The NFL instructed Cox Sports Television to pull the Red Zone "Slap Ya Mama' advertising " in light of domestic violence issues" facing the league. The Saints played the Ravens last night. Their running back Ray Rice, was arrested for domestic violence in February. Do you see this as an example of making light of domestic abuse or is it an endearing way to compliment moms cooking? How much control should NFL have over ads, player excessive roughness, celebrations? Have they taken complete control of the sport for their own benefit and become the no fun league or is it still under control of the fans who support them? Jack Walker, Vice President of Marketing for Walker & Sons (home of Slap ya Mama) joined Don.
