NFL is slowly turning into a disaster, and it could be even worse than anything that has ever happened before. Players protested the anthem in a response to the President’s remarks. The league didn’t do anything to stop this, and karma is ready to do its job. This sponsor made a bold move.
Many thought that sponsors will remain silent and do nothing about this. Nike even supported kneeling players. But, this sponsor isn’t buying any of their nonsense, and NFL has just lost another sponsor.
Steve Kalafer, the owner of the Flemington auto dealership colossus decided to pull advertising from NFL games. “Customers and employees have asked me ‘why are we supporting this disrespectful behavior?’ Our response is, ‘We cannot,’” Kalafer said.
The National Football League and its owners have shown their fans and marketing partners that they do not have a comprehensive policy to ensure that players stand and show respect for America and our flag during the playing of the National Anthem. As the NFL parses the important nationwide issues of ‘social justice’ and ‘freedom of speech,’ it is clear that a firm direction by them is not forthcoming. Therefore, we have cancelled all of our NFL advertising on the Optimum and Infinity networks,” he added.
Now the NFL will lose so many things at the same time. We’re talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars. Each Sunday.
The league didn’t do anything to stop the kneeling, and they have to bear the consequences of their actions. People are unhappy with this behavior, and someone has to stop it. Players can’t keep doing this. They have to stop. NFL will lose each of its sponsors. Who will be the next to go?
What do you think about this? Do you think NFL will stop kneelers? How will the league react to the decision Kalafer made? Will they lose another sponsor?
