Watching any sport on television is a guarantee that you’ll see rotating ads for cars, booze, erectile dysfunction and (now) DRAFTKINGSFANDUELDRAFTKINGSFANDUELDRAFTKINGSFANDUEL.
And while most of Twitter is currently on the Daily Fantasy Hate Bandwagon, Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright took to Twitter on Thursday to complain about one of the other big ad space buyers in the sports entertainment world.

On the one hand, yes it is tiring to see the same ads for the same products played on a seemingly endless loop for hours on end. On the other hand, I’m not too sure what’s so scandalous about ED ads that they should require child monitoring. Twitter, per usual, was split in the debate.

@UncleCharlie50 Yeah. That would be like playing in a stadium filled with alcohol ads that also bears the name of Booze. Oh wait…

@UncleCharlie50 it's a PG rated ad, relax a little bit. It's not graphic. Your kids will see much worse on the Internet at some point
