or Wells Fargo Center
or Comcast SportsNet
or Budweiser, Volkswagen logos at center ice
or BMW commercials starring Mike Richards

Face it, we are bombarded with ads in the states. Soccer in England is a 90 minute sport that is on tv for 2 hours. No commercials at all during the 1st or 2nd half.

To compare which is worse.
3.5-4 hours to watch 60 mins of American football
2 hours to watch 90 minutes plus stoppage time of English football with a sponsorship ad on the front of the jersey.

To be honest, our system in America is ****ed up.
