Breaking: NFL Just Hit With Devastating News About Their League – The Season Is Over 3 Months Early

The National Football League has stirred up more than it’s fair share of controversy over the past couple of months. The National Anthem protest that started last season with former 49ers player, Colin Kaepernick that many hoped would just fade away, did not. In fact, it spread like a virus, infecting every single team in the NFL.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, as well as the spoiled millionaires that make up the teams, drastically overplayed their hand, assuming that the American people would just turn a blind eye to the blatant disrespect being shown to the flag we love. Because of their flagrant disdain for our nation’s heritage, the largest nationwide boycott in recent history slammed into the league like a freight train, draining their bank accounts, and putting the entire league into jeopardy.
Thus far the damage done to the NFL was done by their furious former fans who have left the league in droves. Those who used to spend their time watching or going to the games have taken to social media to inform everyone who supports the league, that we won’t be supporting them. Significant pressure was put on sponsors to pull their advertising, but until now, none had.
However, today the NFL got the worst news to date; one of the NFL’s most iconic sponsors, Papa John’s, has officially withdrawn their support from the league. Just one sponsor might not seem like a massive problem, but considering their annual advertising budget just 3 years ago was over $180 million, they’re exit is a huge hit to the league. According to Bleacher Report, they cited “negative consumer sentiment” for the controversial move:
“Pizza chain Papa John’s announced Wednesday that it is pulling its advertising associated with the NFL, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.
Per Jonathan Maze of Nation’s Restaurant News, Papa John’s founder John Schnatter said sales are down due to ‘negative consumer sentiment’ regarding the company’s relationship with the NFL.”
No matter how much the company might have invested in the NFL in the past, or how strong those ties are, actions have consequences and friendship doesn’t pay the bills. Papa John’s is a business that is out to make its customers happy, and the NFL is just bad for business. Maybe at some point down the road they will get their players in line, and show the world that they once again respect the National Anthem, but until then Americans will continue to boycott, and sponsors will continue to lose money on them.
Are you still Boycotting the NFL?
