Daly Ad Rejected by CBS

Posted on Wed, Apr 25, 2007 at 4:00 AM

According to a story in today's New York Times, a TV ad featuring John Daly has been rejected by CBS for being inappropriate. The ad, for the golf ball maker MaxFli, shows Daly driving a golf cart and holding what looks to be a beer.

From the story: "'Any implication that participants are drinking in excess or performing an activity that requires a level of alertness while drinking does not meet network standards,' said LeslieAnne Wade, a CBS Sports spokeswoman."

MaxFli, which says the drink in question was ginger ale, has responded by posting the ad on its Web site.
