The FCC has received a large volume of complaints forwarded to the NFL from concerned parents and viewers about the excessive pornography of the Halftime Show which is supposed to be family oriented and reflective of popular interests!

Some people sent their children out of the room, the degradation and objectification of women's bodies, with many threatening to boycott the NFL and Pepsi.

Of course, the +1300 complaints do not reflect all offended, just those bother and proactive enough to bother to contact the FCC. And the NFL being the scum-sucking exploitative dirtball industry it is, may or may not respond to the complaints next year, the number of complaints still paling in comparison to the amount of money they make otherwise in reflecting in general the overall decay of our society..

No different than any other prime time show. It's the new normal.
Only because too many people just sit around resignedly saying: "No different than any other prime time show. It's the new normal." Another case of slow boiling the frogs slowly; just shove the shit down their throats and watch them all sit back in resignation that this is just "the way things are."

Except 1300 proactive families.

Of course, I'll just take your word because I rarely sit around anymore watching any network prime time. It's all shit.

Some would say that the sheer violence of American Football is tantamount to pornographic with all the male-on-male sadism.
There are some other weird manifestations in society as well. What about all those images of a near naked Jesus being tortured and bleeding? What if those were images of females?

Violence? Sadism? You obviously never watched football in its heyday of the 1970s and 80s, when players would take you out, cripple you, throw you on your head and break bones.

We're you one of the 1300? If not, who are you to say we are doing nothing about this shit. We don't watch the garbage, either. I stated a fact: trash television is the new normal. We do our part by not tuning in.

The offended need to be offended.

It's what they live for.

They should do a Planned Parenthood abortion advertisement as a chaser to the half time show.

And what about the adult men in the audience who might like to see a little action in the half time show?

Don’t they have some rights?

Here's the thing: In this age of women who want to be treated as PEOPLE and not as mere objects of sexual desire and gratification, here we have famous women - on the greatest of all public stages - grotesquely putting themselves "out there" as objects of sexual desire and gratification. And it was not because some man forced them to do it; they did it because they revel in it.

If my daughter had been on that stage I would have, as a minimum, dis-owned her. It was a disgraceful spectacle. The fact that they got only a couple thousand complaints is disappointing.

When the quality of your music sucks, the next best thing to do to hold an audience is take your clothes off.

Here's an idea!

If you don't like it, don't watch it.

Radical I know, but you might wanna give it a try.

Well said. And the final kicker was the part of the show near the end where they had a bunch of kids on the stage as the girls spread, fingered themselves and gyrated.

And to think when I was a kid, they had decency standards and you couldn't even show a navel and couples slept in separate beds.

Mind you, I LOVE pretty half-naked girls! Just not what I think is appropriate for the biggest family sports show of the year that is supposed to be a musical event. There are times and places where people can go EXPECTING to see lurid sexuality.

Liar. This is actually what was going on while the kids, including Jlo's daughter, were on stage...
