NFL is facing serious backlash after protesters took a step back, and protested the national anthem. This is the most disgraceful moment in US history, and most sponsors are silent. Karma is playing its little game, and this NFL partner is cutting its ties with the league.
Hardwick Clothing CEO decided to pull ads over unpatriotic protests, and it’s a move we all saw coming. Cleveland businessman Allan Jones disapproves the latest NFL protests, and his reasons are more than serious. This is a clear lesson for everyone who considers disrespecting America.
President Trump warned NFL owners that people will rage against disrespectful players and so it happened. Although Nike supported players, Allan Jones decided to say ‘no’ to protesters. The CEO will stop any advertisements from his companies for the season.
“For the 29 states we operate in, this isn’t much to them, but it’s a lot to us. The Tombras Group is our ad agency in Knoxville and our national media buyer for both TV and radio [for Check Into Cash] and don’t look for Hardwick on the NFL either. When I see Colin Kaepernick lecturing the ‘oppressed’ wearing a Fidel Castro T shirt, you realize the hypocrisy to this stupidity. I love America. They have the right to protest and I have the right to turn off the channel and place our ads elsewhere. The next time someone asks the public to finance a stadium, this will have a very long term effect. These guys should really be the lead plaintiffs in the head injury cases-that’s the only jury that will find sympathy!” the NFL partner wrote on Facebook.
This is the beginning of the end for NFL players who disrespected our identity. They will bear the consequences of their actions. Colin Kaepernick can’t sign a new contract, and that should be a lesson for every disrespectful, anti-American player out there.
What do you think about the comments this NFL partner made? Do you agree with Allan Jones? Would you do the same if you were Jones for the day? How will NFL owners interpret his move?
