The NFL is going downhill very fast. IT seems like they are lost when it comes to what they are going to do as a league in response to the protests. Sadly, the last thing that is going to happen is the stoppage of the protests. It has been made clear that these will continue on into the future. And they do not come without consequences, which we have seen. For one thing, ratings and profitability are going down quickly. Now advertisers are leaving.
Only two years back, Tennessee businessman Allan Jones was showing his friends his new Hardwick Clothing-brand suits by showing the wardrobe for NBC’s air time during the network’s broadcasts of NFL football games.
However, now that players and coaches and even owners moved to challenge President Donald Trump and took a knee during the national anthem over the weekend, Jones said he is done sponsoring the wardrobes and advertising on stations that play the NFL games. This is a big move and is only the first of many.
Jones, who is the CEO of the lending company Check Into Cash and owner of Hardwick Clothes released his criticism on Tuesday.
“Our companies will not condone unpatriotic behavior!” said Jones, the CEO of the payday lending chain Check Into Cash. “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.”
He is a very strong supporter of President Donald Trump. He told his media buyer, the Tombras Group in Knoxville, to take off any commercials for Check Into Cash, Buy Here Pay here USA, or U.S. Money Stores during NFL games “for the entire season.”
He has done a lot business wise. It seems like he knows what he is doing and is not going to standby and let the NFL disrespect our nation and its flag with nothing in return. This is an amazing move done by him and his company. Hopefully we see more like it in the future.
