    Bud Light Leaving The NFL??

    Saw this posted on FB. Wonder how much this will cost the nfl.


    Schilling Distributing Company
    3 hrs ·

    We have made the decision to pull all Bud Light point-of-sale material featuring the NFL and New Orleans Saints marks following last weekend's National Anthem protests. Our company has been locally Veteran-Owned through three generations since 1950, and we strongly support our Nation's flag and law enforcement. We believe that while everyone has a right to peacefully protest, doing so at the expense of our National Anthem is not an appropriate way to go about it.

    "With all the negative attention the NFL is receiving right now due to these protests, we do not feel it is appropriate to associate our brand with them in the marketplace at this time," said Charles "Buddy" Schilling, Vice-President of Schilling Distributing. "These sponsorship deals are made at a national level, and while Bud Light has been an official partner of the NFL and New Orleans Saints for years, there is no need for us to ask our retailer partners to promote such controversial organizations to help sell product."

    Schilling will offer alternative programming to retailers in the meantime, including point-of-sale material featuring such messages as "Proud to Serve Those Who Serve" and "This Bud's for You, Louisiana."

    Cheers, Acadiana!

    ESPN is 80% owned by Walt Disney. We call the Disney Channel down here. Just sayin.

    I suppose this just means they won't feature Saints on their ad material. They'll be happy to keep selling the brew. This may be a hit to the Saints franchise, but I'm sure the coon-asses will keep making swamp water out of the beverage.
