Anheuser-Busch wants to know if the kneeling by NFL players matters to their consumers.


Anheuser-Busch is wondering how much this issue matters to their patrons.

An ESPN article in November 2015 announced Anheuser-Busch's $1.5 billion sponsorship commitment with the NFL through 2022 as the league's official beer sponsor.
www.indystar.com...

The beer company is re-thinking the NFL adds because of the calls they are getting on the consumer hotline. They now have an option to give an opinion about the beer companies sponsorship of the NFL.


Apparently, the beer company is rethinking their status with the NFL after multiple calls have flooded their consumer hotline.

If you call (800) DIAL BUD or (800) 342-5283, a recording offers several options with option 1 directly referencing the NFL sponsorship.

“If you are calling with questions or comments about Anheuser-Busch’s sponsorship of the NFL, press one.”


Looks like Bud is reviewing staying such a big part of the NFL. I bet we see a change in the kneeling, the NFL isn't about football, it's about $$$.

To quote a brilliant philophisizer.....

C.R.E.A.M.



I agree, once the buck is literally on the line this crap will stop. It's all fun and games until some billionaire stands to lose out on the cash flow.

I find it baffling, the things that make people angry these days.

This world is doomed.

Yep, if that beer co pulls out, we may start seeing carpet installing commercials and Ronco products. It would indeed be ugly and cause a huge problem.

Just this story will make the shenanigans stop.

Losing a lot of money would make most people angry.

I called the 1800 dial bud number just to see what it was. First its a recording saying the anthem is a source of pride for the company and the 1100 veterans they employ and they'd like to hear your feedback. Then it basically ask you to leave your feedback after the tone.

I would hate to have the job of listening to thousands of people yelling at an answering machine.

And the media. Could you imagine if they lost the revenue from the ads
in the Super Bowl?

True, but most owners don't, like the Cowboys, go out and kneel with the players. It will be funny to see the Cowboy's owner have to puss out and tell'em to stand. All for that silly thing money.

No, I am referring to the cause of the loss of money.

NO silly, according to the media there are just a few throw backs that are pissed.

I tend to buy into your scenario.

The media only makes money, never loose, wonder if they are too big to fail?

Where is the number, I'll call them and say I do not think that the players should be acting that way. The NFL is only allowed to exist because we have a government that lets it exist.

It sounds more like they were getting too many calls that mucked up their voicemail system so they added a new "forum."

Hotline calls are not really a very scientific polling method.

One way of looking at it.

Weird to potentially have a Super Bowl without a Clydesdale commercial.

Anheuser Busch's consumer help line temporarily went down Friday afternoon. A company representative says there was a high volume of calls from a social media campaign.

I wonder how many duplicate calls there may have been.

I would imagine that Bud's phone system is capable of monitoring dup calls, I can at home.

So nice that a foreign company cares about us Americans.

Yes, they want your feed back, it seems the symbiotic relationship between the NFL and Bud is in trouble.
Or
Could this be a board room idea to get cut rate add costs from the NFL?
