the good parts

Strict Review Categories.
The following categories of endorsements are subject to strict review and a strong
presumption that they will not be approved.
1) Any endorsement related to apparel, footwear or athletic equipment used for training,
playing or participating in any sport or event ESPN may cover including the companies
that manufacture and distribute any such material. Provided, however, that in assessing
apparel, footwear and equipment, exceptions will be granted to players, coaches and
administrators who are engaged as analysts and for whom such endorsements are
part of the sports coverage/reporting landscape.
2) Endorsements related to any form of gambling or lotteries.
3) Endorsements of any type of firearm or ammunition.
4) Endorsements of political candidates or any form of political advocacy.

This sentence should never, ever exist ...

Thank Jeebus that this policy won't threaten the Coor's Light 6 Pack of questions.
