CEO HITS The NFL Right In The Wallet Due To Protest
It was only a matter of time before a CEO of a major company pulls their sponsorship from The National Football League. The unpatriotic national anthem protest will be the downfall of the NFL. Many believe this to be not true, but if you knew anything about its viewers, they’re more conservative than liberal. The majority of the companies that sponsor the NFL are conservative with a hand full of left-leaning companies. What did you think was going to happen? Athletes are paid to entertain us, not promote their political ideologies on the field that the taxpayers are paying for. In reality, it’s time for these athletes to be brought down a notch, and paid less. It’s time we MAKE them understand that WE THE PEOPLE control their destiny in their sport.
CEO Allan Jones said in a statement that his companies “will not condone unpatriotically behavior.” Jones, who is a very outspoken supporter of President Trump, said he stands by what President Trump said in his speech in Alabama while campaigning for then incumbent Luther Strange.
Two years ago, Cleveland, Tenn., businessman Allan Jones was proudly showing off his newly acquired Hardwick Clothing-brand suits by providing the wardrobe for NBC’s on-air talent during the network’s broadcasts of NFL football games.
But after NFL players and coaches challenged President Donald Trump and many took a knee during the national anthem played before their games over the weekend, Jones said he is through sponsoring the wardrobes or advertising on stations that air the National Football League.
Jones, CEO of the payday lending chain Check Into Cash and owner of Hardwick Clothes — America’s oldest suit maker — tweeted his criticism and change of heart Tuesday.
“Our companies will not condone unpatriotic behavior!” said Jones, CEO of the payday lending chain Check Into Cash and owner of Hardwick Clothes — America’s oldest suit maker. “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.”
Jones, a strong supporter of Trump, directed his media buyer, the Tombras Group in Knoxville, to remove any commercials for Check Into Cash, Buy Here Pay here USA, or U.S. Money Stores from airing during NFL games “for the entire season.”
Jones acquired the then financially struggling Hardwick Clothing in 2014 and has since boosted production and sales for the oldest continuously operating suit maker in the country.
