Is Audism Involved with the NFL Contest?

There is an official National Football League (NFL) contest for the elementary kids to submit their written essassies (essay) for meeting the football players at the XI Super Bowl in South Florida area.

The WTVJ televised newscasts of young deaf girl with cochlear implant made her presence for television viewers without any use of American Sign Language or any kind of sign language.

The media portrayals of this very same deaf CI user to be seen as a true miracle and success without any "deaf' features. Very troublesome about how the deaf youngster being portrayed in that manner without any balanced and objective newsreportings. http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local-beat/Miami-Girls-Winning-Moment-Wins-NFL-Contest-83348002.html

Is the real counteroffensive tactics within the Alexander Graham Bell Association (AGBell), American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) and other proponents of cochlear implants, ex. medical professionals? That seems the way as the National Association of the Deaf (NAD)proudly announced the close working relationships with the NFL to bring the students fromthe Florida School for the Deaf and other schools with deaf programs with the use of ASL.

Why every Super Bowl time like last two years ago' Pepsi tv commericals create such an opporunity for the AGBell Association to steal all the thunders from the effective display of
true beauty and eloquence of American Sign Language (ASL) within the presence of Florida School for the Deaf students?

The Pepsi carbonated drink manfacturers decide not to do any Pespi tv commericals for the annual Super Bowl tv commericals which they make the recent press statements about rather spending $20 million dollars for the introduction of new carbonated (soda) drinks.
