"The obscene marriage of NBC Sports to Vince McMahon has reached the commercial stage. During Tuesday's All-Star game, an ad ran for the XFL on NBC. McMahon appeared in the spot to smugly tell us that quarterbacks 'won't be wearing panties' in the XFL. Aside from the fact that it was a terribly sexist comment - but far tamer than the misogynistic acts McMahon sells kids on WWF shows - McMahon was obviously referring to the perceived softness of NFL QBs, fellows who weekly suffer concussions to the point where they're forced to retire. But that's McMahon. His sense of sports entertainment - and now NBC's - lies not in people watching football, but in the hope of people - especially kids - watching someone get brutalized."
