It's everywhere, a couple patches on a jersey's which helps the league revenue is fine imo at this point. It's not going to change.
It's one thing to look at players wearing advertisements on their jerseys.
It's another thing to buy a Ross jersey and instantly becoming an advertising pillar for Primo Pasta.

Because that's what's going to happen... And that's not okay.

What also matters is exactly who's advertisement it is and how prominent it is on the jersey, but that's also something we the fans don't get to decide.

But don't get me wrong I won't stop watching games because of some stupid patches.
