:00 Burk, the chairwoman of the
National Council of Women's
Organizations, says an ad the league is
airing is offensive. The NHL
commercial shows a bare-chested player
being dressed as a warrior for a game
by a scantily clad woman. Networks
including NBC and MTV says they see
nothing offensvie about it. Burk, is
the same woman who led an unsuccessful

effort to allow female members at
Augusta National Country Club three
years ago.
