NFL Sponsor Pulls Ads from Games Over ‘Unpatriotic’ Actions

JPMorgan Chase & Co’s Shawn Quigg issued a shock announcement to investors this morning advising them to refrain from investing in CBS stock ahead of Week 4 NFL broadcasts.

“The bank recommends buying an option that gives you the right to sell the shares at $57.50 on the likelihood that the stock will fall below that price after the company discloses ratings for the games. CBS closed at $58 on Tuesday,”

NFL stats reflect the dismal amount of respect players and owners have been displaying for our flag.

The warning may be timely for investors as ratings for the NFL have been steadily falling at least since the 2016 season. Week 2 ratings were some of the worst in decades and that was before the mass protests hit the league last weekend. Additionally, Sunday Night Football was hit with an eight percent drop in viewership for Week 3.

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) also doesn't want to take part in any of this kerfuffle surrounding taking a knee.

“I believe we ought to terminate all federal government support of the NFL,” Brooks told Breitbart News following the Conversations with Conservatives event at the Capitol. “That would include the termination of any and all advertising that is done on behalf of the federal government — military and non-military — to the extent we do any.”

CNN Money reported in 2015 the NFL teams get “billions in subsidies from U.S. taxpayers.”

Those who say the voice of the people have no say are completely wrong. It is so easy to look a one man choosing to pull advertising for his suits of the NBC broadcasts as pointless. Somebody else will rush up to the plate to take his spot. But, when enough people get together – nothing is impossible.

“Our companies will not condone unpatriotic behavior!” said Jones, CEO of the payday lending chain Check Into Cash and owner of Hardwick Clothes — America's oldest suit maker. “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.”

Jones, a strong supporter of Trump, directed his media buyer, the Tombras Group in Knoxville, to remove any commercials for Check Into Cash, Buy Here Pay here USA, or U.S. Money Stores from airing during NFL games “for the entire season.”

A few days ago, businessmen Alan Jones was something of an anomaly. Now, look at how the winds have turned. The real question is will the NFL stand-up and give the people their game back or sink into an irreversible leftist demise?
