    I didn't think it needed to be said, but apparently it does. Obviously Ian doesn't contract for each of the individual ads, other than the one for the Pats Pro Shop. The ads go through general advertising agencies, and they in turn send specific ads tailored to keywords, etc. With lots of recent threads and comments mentioning the New York Giants, lo and behold there's that ad you saw ... though I always get a bit of a chuckle when other ads appear such as one for a Jeep Patriot, or something for the Tea Party based on the word 'Patriots'.

    With that in mind I will move this to the Help Desk, and Ian can ask the people at Ad Choices to remove that one ad from their rotation.

    Will that ad placement even be effective?:confused

    Didn't know we were thought of as a good marketing demographic from the Gints, that's bonkers.

    Nothing wrong with the ad, jmt. People can grow a thicker skin about it, if needed.

    That ad is targeted here for all of the people that became Pats fans in mid to late January.

    My immediate reaction was to laugh. Whatever the market will bear.

    Yeah, those are just through an ad network that I'm signed up with, and I have nothing to do with what they run. I'm guessing they saw "football" as a category and decided we were a fit to run it.

    It's annoying to see, but considering the fact I'm still a little bitter about that game I figured why not let them waste their money :rolleyes:
