FOX not wanting weapon-related sponsors?
That's kind of funny with Fox News' well known political leaning as compared to other news outlets.
I actually believe that Fox and Fox News, and not to mention Fox Sports, are all run as separate corporate entities despite belonging to the same parent company. Your point still stands, but I thought it worth mentioning.
But that parent company is the source of the political views.
I'm not sure how I feel about this. I don't own any guns or anything.
I know it was a business decision.
But...you would have to imagine that most people who are going to watch the UFC aren't going to be offended by gun advertisements. They are either...
Trying to cut down on their opponents ammunition (pun intended) by taking away something that is potentially controversial.
They are trying to expand their audience beyond their traditional demographic.
I can understand both goals but I don't think this move will make any real difference. As for the first reason, its not like their is any lack of violent images that soccer moms can point to. As for the second reason, like I said before, anyone who is going to be offended by a gun store add probably doesn't want to watch the UFC in the first place.
