You think 1 mill is bad? You should see how much they pay for computer services and support through other companies.

This is akin to people whining about people buying steaks with food stamps but not billionaires getting multi-million dollar tax credits for owning Yachts that exceed a certain size.

And $1 Million dollars over 3 or 4 years? There's private companies that would easily pay 50x that amount for such exposure.

The National Guard set out to increase recruitment with this plan. Meaning they sought out the NFL to utilize it's image for the sake of the National Guards own advertising plan. Don't be upset with the Falcons or the NFL, but instead be upset with the Government that thought this was a good idea. The NFL gets plenty of tax breaks, and the government could have used that as an incentive to get the NFL to pick up the 5.4 million dollar expense. I wouldn't be surprised if down the road we find out that this entire campaign ended up putting money in the pockets of politicians or company's that they support.
