Like most of us football fans, we turn on our television sets and settle in to watch the games, not to see overpaid players make political statements on the football field.
IF YOU ARE ANGRY AT WHAT YOU ARE SEEING, THERE IS A RESPONSE!
(The beer) Bud Light’s brand parent company Anheuser-Busch InBev – one of the NFL’s biggest sponsors – is rethinking their NFL sponsorship, and they want your input.
The NFL player protests of the National Anthem have backfired in a major way on the league. It has seen sponsors pull out, ratings decline and teams play in front of practically empty stadiums.
In the wake of increased national anthem protests, Anheuser-Busch is reconsidering their NFL sponsorship, likely because the protests are very unpopular among everyday Americans. Bud Light currently serves as the official beer of the NFL. At the end of 2015, the company extended its current deal, which is slated to expire at the end of the 2016-17 season, for another six years through the 2022 season, but that might all change very quickly.
So the company set up a hotline for fans to call and give their thoughts about the protests and Anheuser-Busch’s sponsorship of the NFL. The number for the hotline is: 1-800-342-5283.
Call them and let them know what you think!
