ANOTHER MAJOR SPONSOR PULLS ADS FROM NFL GAMES
As a response to ongoing controversy regarding NFL players disrespecting our flag and kneeling during the national anthem, a major New Jersey Based auto chain has yanked all of their ads from NFL games for the remainder of the 2017 NFL season.
Now, Flemington Car and Truck Country – a massive car dealer in New Jersey – will pull all their ads for the remainder of the football season.
Owner Steve Kalafer said in a statement the American flag protests are disrespectful, and he will not support them with his advertising dollars anymore: “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. We have canceled all of our NFL advertising on the Optimum and Infinity (cable) networks.”
Kalafer is also part of the Somerset Patriots’ ownership group, which is an independent professional baseball team.
Kalafer added, “As the NFL parses the important nationwide issues of ‘social justice’ and ‘freedom of speech,’ it is clear that a firm direction by them is not forthcoming.”
