Rocky IV censored?

I saw Rocky IV on AMC two weeks ago and noticed something I hadn't seen before... During Apollo's funeral scene, the right side of the shot was digitally blurred out. I was wondering if anyone knew why?

AMC doesn't show their films uncensored anyway. The edit for content. I have no idea what was blurred out, though.

It's always been like that...I remember the blur from watching my RCA videodisc dozens of times.

They blurred out the "lost footage" of Sloan Peterson getting undressed.

Mike - I'll say it a second time. It's ALWAYS been that way, at least since the first home video release. There's no censorship going on - probably just something wrong with the lens or the focus during the filming of the scene.

Would have been nice if they had used one on the trailer too.
