SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Given the cultural moment we're in, where the recognition of sexual abuse victims is at an all-time high, NBC's decision to use a registered sex offender in a Thanksgiving NFL game promo is unbelievable.

Can't wait to hear the official explanation for this from the Peacock.

Glad I wasn't the only person who thought that, rcade. Tone deaf, even by sports TV standards.

Wasn't it also NBC that had a little girl in a Ravens jersey get into an elevator in a parking garage with a Baltimore Ravens player as part of a pre-game intro?

And that Ravens player happened to be Ray "sell out my two friends so I can plea out of murder charges" Lewis?
