    Now that NFL teams are trying to defray the evaporation of advertising revenues from the likes of the car companies, the financial services industry, and Budweiser, they’ll necessarily be opening the door to overtures from businesses with which the NFL wisely won’t want to do business, under any circumstances.

    And one such company already is knocking. (With a fist. We think.)

    Zero Tolerance Entertainment, which makes and markets adult videos, claims that it has approached the Houston Texans regarding the availability of marketing space.

    Last week, the Texans acknowledged that they are seeking to take advantage of the new rule that allows NFL teams to allow corporate logos and/or messages to infiltrate the official team practice jerseys.

    In a press release circulated by Scott Stein, the company’s director of marketing, Zero Tolerance claimed that an offer involving “several zeros” was made to the Texans.

    “Every team in the league starts the season by saying, that they’ll have Zero Tolerance for losing,” the press release states. “While our offer may not be taken seriously, there is some undeniable synergy between the NFL and the name of our company.”

    It’s not that the offer won’t be taken seriously. After all, the NFL and its 32 franchises are trying desperately in a down economy to raise money through a new universe of revenue streams. The problem is that the Texans at best will use the offer to leverage someone else into offering more money, since the consequences of doing business with an adult entertainment company would offset any profits arising from such a deal.

    Still, teams like the Texans should brace themselves for an onslaught of offers from business interests anxious to take advantage of the availability of advertising space that the traditional advertisers don’t have the money to buy.

    It's a total non-story of course. Florio gets bored easily for a guy who has 32 teams to cover.

    Yeah, I'm not seeing McNair who is all about being classy etc, taking money from the adult film industry.......

    If any team did allow this they must be desperate for money because I suspect that there would be a backlash by certain segments of society.

    #1 I doubt there would be a huge backlash from this city, there is a porn shop on every street here.

    #2 Advertising on jerseys is for the other football

    #3 BWAAAAHAHAhahahahahahaa!!!!!!

    #4 Either it's all okay or none of it is.

    #5 I guess it's not as involved as baseball is with penis pills but football certainly shows those commercials left and right. How is it okay to artificially inflate your junk but not to use it?

    #6 This denial from a sport who takes time outs to trot 60 or so LOVELY young ladies out to dress up scantily and gyrate for a bunch of drunk dudes.

    Yup. I'll never forget that day when they had that "wardrobe malfunction", in the very next commercial they talking about erections lasting longer than for 4 hours.

    (Now that's funny I don't care who you are)

    Ugh the wardrobe malfunction....to quote Chief Wiggum: "STOP! In the name of American squeamishness!"

    Yeah, and the 4 hour erection thing...geez, I think I'm pretty well in shape and healthy but sex for 4 freaking hours? No thanks, I wouldn't wish that kind of soreness on anyone's genitals. Who needs that kind of...sustaining? elderly male pornstars?

    My gut feeling is that TexanBill had something to do with this.

    Well....If this did go through, I think the entire team should grow porn staches to show unity.
