BOYCOTT ALERT: Here Are the NFL’s Top Sponsors

Are you tired of seeing the NFL and it’s players trash our County, our Anthem and our Flag?

If you’re ready to say enough is enough, then it might be time to hit them where it hurts:  in the pocketbook!

NFL players surely have the right to protest the National Anthem, but we also have the right to protest the NFL and the sponsors who pay the NFL big bucks!

According to NFLPA.com, here are the top sponsors this year:

If you are ready to stand up against hatred of our Country and our Anthem, please SHARE!

Here’s more of the story, from Fox News:

The NFL’s top corporate sponsors haven’t expressed any concern about the unprecedented wave of player national anthem protests this weekend, a league spokesman said Monday.

NFL players engaged in widespread demonstrations on Sunday, hours after President Donald Trump called on the league’s owners to fire ‘son of a [expletive]’ who kneel during the pregame national anthem. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the vast majority of the league’s 32 owners issued statements in solidarity with players and condemned Trump for engaging in divisive rhetoric.

“We talk to our sponsors all the time, whether it’s raining or the sun is out. We’ve talked to them, we keep them informed. I haven’t heard of a single issue of a sponsor that is worried or has raised particular issue about the weekend,” NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart told reporters during a conference call Monday.

The NFL’s top sponsors include major corporations like Visa, Nike, Anheuser-Busch InBev, PepsiCo and McDonald’s. Sponsorships are a major stream of income for the NFL, which is expected to take in $14 billion in 2017. Goodell previously said the league is aiming to reach $25 billion in revenue by the year 2027.

While most of the league’s corporate partners have yet to take a stance on the national anthem protests, Nike on Monday issued a statement in support of the league’s players.

“Nike supports athletes and their right to freedom of expression on issues that are of great importance to our society,” the company said.

And more here, from Bloomberg:

As NFL owners and players rushed to defend their right to protest in the wake of President Donald Trump’s criticism, one group of stakeholders has remained largely silent — the league’s corporate partners.

The National Football League and its 32 teams made $1.25 billion from corporate partners last year, according to sponsorship tracker ESP Properties. The list includes some of the advertising world’s biggest spenders. Visa Inc., Ford Motor Co., Nike Inc., Anheuser-Busch InBev, Microsoft Corp., McDonald’s Corp., PepsiCo Inc. and Bridgestone Corp. are among the league’s top-tier partners and almost all have remained silent on what was possibly the most political and polarizing Sunday in recent league history.

One of the few NFL partners that has mentioned the protests is Under Armour Inc., a company that has already had a pair of Trump-related controversies this year. The Baltimore-based sporting goods company tweeted Sunday that it “stands for the flag and by our Athletes for free speech, expression and a unified America.” Even with such an anodyne statement, apparently crafted for maximum neutrality, the hundreds of replies to the tweet reveal anger from both sides.

“I’d expect most sponsors to stay quiet, at the risk of alienating a significant percentage of their customers,” said Bob Dorfman, executive vice president of Baker Street Advertising in San Francisco.

NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said Monday that he hadn’t seen any business impact — positive or negative — in the aftermath of the president’s comments. Regarding sponsors, he said the league speaks constantly with its partners and wasn’t aware of a single one that was worried about the weekend’s events.

There’s little incentive for sponsors to pick sides under the best of circumstances. This instance is especially murky. While the anthem protests by players have turned off some fans, others have soured on football for wholly other political reasons — including solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, the player who knelt during the anthem last year and is currently unsigned by an NFL team.

  31. Thanks for helping me to get new ideas about computer systems. I also have the belief that one of the best ways to maintain your notebook in leading condition has been a hard plastic-type material case, or maybe shell, that matches over the top of the computer. These kinds of protective gear are model distinct since they are made to fit perfectly on the natural outer shell. You can buy all of them directly from the vendor, or through third party sources if they are designed for your laptop, however not all laptop may have a shell on the market. All over again, thanks for your ideas.

  32. Nearly all of whatever you say is supprisingly legitimate and it makes me wonder why I had not looked at this with this light previously. This particular piece truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific subject matter goes. Nevertheless at this time there is one particular point I am not too comfortable with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual core idea of the issue, permit me observe what the rest of the visitors have to point out.Very well done.
