NFL fans may have been disappointed in the festive atmosphere at games this season, but some of the decorations were actually designed by the league and were cleared by the NFL’s Office of Legal Counsel.
Article The NFL’s legal team issued the following statement to ESPN:”The league was aware of the numerous concerns regarding Christmas decorations during the 2016 season.
As we have always done, we will continue to work closely with the league on any issue related to decorations.
As always, we look forward to working with the NFL to ensure that fans in the NFL enjoy the greatest holiday traditions in a respectful and productive manner.”
The NFL will begin using the league’s Christmas Tree Challenge, which awards the league with Christmas tree decorations and other decorations, in 2017.
