Is this just the start of loss revenue for the NFL?

A trickle of loss revenue from a Mega Car dealer is lost for the NFL. Fleminton car and Truck is pulling adds for the remainder of the NFL season.


In response to the ongoing controversy surrounding NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, the owner of Flemington Car and Truck Country has pulled the dealership's ads from broadcasts of games for the remainder of the 2017 season.

So the cable tv is out $$$ do to Fleminton car and Truck pulling the adds. The Mega car co. says they pulled the adds because the team owners not taking a leadership role is disrespectful of the flag and America.


"The National Football League and its owners have shown their fans and marketing partners that they do not have a comprehensive policy to ensure that players stand and show respect for America and our flag during the playing of the national anthem," Steve Kalafer said in a statement. "We have cancelled all of our NFL advertising on the Optimum and Infinity (cable) networks."



2018 advertising is up in the air for Fleminton car and Truck. They feel the NFL buried their head in the sand and this could have been taken care of last season when Kaepernick first started kneeling.


Advertising during the 2018 season will be considered at a later date, he said.
"I'm talking to 99-percent of (my) contacts, and they agree that it's disrespectful, it's improper," he said. "We couldn't support the lack of direction."
"Owners buried their heads in the sand when (Colin) Kaepernick was kneeling. That was the time and place for direction and leadership, and that's why this controversy is taking place," he said.

And I fully support their right to do this. Just as anyone who is offended should stop watching the NFL.

However, this is typical snowflake behavior, to get all outraged over some minor thing. These social Justice warriors want to punish NFL players for taking a knee. I think they just need to grow up and get some thicker skin and focus more on real problems and issues.

As for me, I'm going to enjoy the heck out of some football all season long.

Cheers!

Many teams are now kneeling before the anthem but rising when the anthem is play. Time to move along.

I think it is negatively impacting their business. So they are puling their support, free speech is advertising too.

This is all about free speech. There is a price to freedom.

I would say yes. I get's all bent out of shape over things that don't matter and it takes away from his focus and distracts him.

Why is he so outraged over someone protesting? I think he needs a history lesson to see that America was founded on protests and some of our greatest moments were founded on protests. Think Rosa Parks and MLK for two examples and it goes on and on and on. George is probably rolling over in his grave as I type this.

I agree, but at some point, wee need to stop being offended by everything.

I have to agree if all those who complain are included. What's with the "we support the Constitution as long as we agree with your point". ha.

I don't think people were offended. In fact I have yet to see anyone say they were offended.

People (advertisers) were/are pissed that the owners haven't taken a leadership role in curtailing this while the players are on the dime. Adds are about getting your product in front of people's wealthy faces. And kneeling during the Anthem or locking arms or raising a fist or kneeling then standing is pissing the wealthy customers off.

Simple this is about money and perceived disrespect.

I disagree. I mean on my facebook feed alone I see people burning jerseys and season tickets and swearing that they'll never watch an NFL game again. Snowflakes. Special snowflakes

Not offended. Just read threads here, much less real life.

People get offended at a crucifix in urine, they get pissed when people seem to disrespect traditions.

Perhaps it is the same thing?

This is how free speech works.
Let it run its course.

I guess all those snowflakes that caused advertisers to be pulled from Fox News, causing people to be fired based purely upon accusations, need to get a thinker skin too?

As stated before, it's all about loss of $$$ for the advertisers. If there is a risk of losing $$$, they will pull out.

It would be awesome if it were the start of some diversity in commercials during football games instead of each commercial break looking like this: car commercial, car commercial, geico commericial, beer commercial, car commercial, beer commercial

There are probably 50 other companies waiting in line to advertise in their spot. So many more companies can pull their ads, and many others will take their place.

I support these individuals exercising their freedom of expression by kneeling, standing, sitting, in arms.

This is temporary (the protests). Things get old, people are known for having short memories. This too will fade.

Suffice it to say, in the long run the NFL and their revenue ain't going nowhere!

I did put a geico commercial in there because they seem more plentiful than the others.
