Slap Ya Mama drops red-zone sponsorship ahead of Ravens game
Slap Ya Mama, the Cajun seasoning company, won't be advertising during the Saints' final preseason game next week against the Ravens.
It was hard to miss the "Slap Ya Mama" red zone image superimposed on the Superdome field during the Saints' preseason game last week against the Titans, but the Cajun seasoning company won't be advertising during New Orleans' final preseason matchup next week against the Ravens.
Slap Ya Mama, which is based in Ville Platte, Louisiana, said in a statement Saturday (via the New Orleans Times-Picayune) that it agreed to pull the in-game sponsorship "in light of the domestic violence issues facing the NFL."
Specifically, we imagine, Ravens running back Ray Rice, who has been suspended for the first two games of the regular season after a physical incident with his soon-to-be-wife at an Atlantic City hotel earlier this year.
Slap Ya Mama's decision follows the league's mandate that no virtual on-field advertisements or sponsorships will be allowed during NFL telecasts. According to the Times-Picayune, "The league made the decision due to an increased number of local ads appearing on national broadcasts, mainly thought the syndication and re-airing of games on the NFL Network."
