Here's my feedback for AB-InBev/SAB-Miller: Your beer sucks.

It could be considered the McDonalds of beer, and is very popular.

I still think this is a cost savings strategy, and they will go the NFL with solid phone feedback and want to renegotiate add costs.

If I had the NFL by the pills that is what I would do.

I tell you what the booing that is been going on the teams that are kneeling is a clear show of how the people feels.

Same. Hose them good, it's not like they're poor themselves.

Free expression. Ain't it grand.

The stands seem to be quite full. Think they're drinking Fosters?

I think the NFL stepped in this but good. They could have stopped this when it first started, but they didn't want to touch this. The racial undertones and all.

You can rack this one up to piss poor leadership. And this isn't the only place. Look at universities, they are on the road to a crap load of pain, and it has to do with not wanting to upset the money train that they are on. The problems only get bigger.

Mizzou definitely is.

They're closing dorms and laying people off after BLM took over there.

See? If you want to change things, offend white people.

No one cares about black folks but soon as white people get offended, watch America try to move mountains!

The NFL refused to handle this, I guess they don't have a pair of big boy pants.

Would this have been a small "blip" if it was squashed last season when it came up? Or would it have been a lightning rod and caused issues to progress much quicker?

I think the NFL chose to kick the can down the road. This can kicking main problem is that the problems tend to compound. We have 20,000,000,000,000 reasons that have yet to be solved.

The NFL is in deep deep doodoo, and if Bud demands add cost reductions, it will get interesting fast.

The NFL has only themselves to blame for this......you'd think Billionaires would be smarter.

They reap the whirlwind now. Next will be reduced TV revenues for new Contracts.

Rule #1 don't piss off your biggest demo of consuming fans....they will learn that lesson the hard way now.

I would suggest all the tax subs go out the window for a very profitable business too. And the billionaires must be insulated from the fans. But the bottom line will wake their charmed asses up.

Do you know why no one wants to go to Mizzou these days?

They did a survey on that. It seems that no one, not white students or black ones, feels safe or welcome on the campus. So I guess that doesn't fit your narrative.

No one wants to go because no one feels like they'll be welcome there anymore. In pushing to make their campus "safe" and "equal," they onyl succeeded in tearing it apart.

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




Did Anheuser Busch mention they were using scientific methods to conduct a poll?

If I owned a soccer team in the US I'd have teams of people calling AB and every other NFL sponsor I could think of to tell them (anonymously) that I am boycotting their products.

Cha-CHING !!!

I guess when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. That really is a shame.

Or maybe BLM and other "black folks" are going about it the wrong way. Rioting and destroying your own city doesn't achieve your goals. Protesting doesn't achieve your ultimate goals, stop the flow of money to those in supposed charge, instant changes.

Probably would help to be a little more focused in your actual goals other than "America is racist" too. Just my opinion.

The dirty rotten anti-humanitarian Global Cabal who we all despise....own many many sports teams and Entertainers from Singers to Actors.......this is about the process of global change....this Cabal is being hunted now and they know it.....the Athletes who refuse to show national unity are the equivilant of domestic terrorists even though they are following the Cabals lead ...the Cabal who writes their paycheques and who ensures their incomes.
