Asking Bands to Play for ‘Exposure’ Taken to a New Level as a Report Says the NFL Is Asking Artists to PAY to Play Super Bowl Halftime

The age-old argument of wanting music artists to perform for no pay, but for 'exposure' has been taken to a new, absurd level by the National Football League that is reportedly asking its three finalists for this year's game to pay the NFL for the exposure that comes with playing the most watched event each year. What's next? Making halftime a Pay Per View special for viewers?
