Domestic Violence, the NFL, and its Sponsors

Illustration for article titled Domestic Violence, the NFL, and its Sponsors

Domestic violence is violent or aggressive behavior, typically involving the violent abuse of a spouse or partner. The NFL sees itself as a league of fairness. A sponsor is a person or organization that provides funds for a project or activity carried out by another entity.

Several weeks back, I contacted a sampling of the National Football League's sponsors with a simple question:

Dear [SPONSOR NAME],

You are a proud sponsor of NFL. Is 2 games a fair suspension for punching your wife in the face and knocking her unconscious? A simple yes or no answer will suffice.

Many thanks!

This is a yes or no question. It is a question that humans should be able to answer.

Here are the responses I received:

Anheuser-Busch - "As a major advertiser and the official beer sponsor of the NFL, we recognize the possibility that some viewers will disagree with decisions made by the league. With that being said, Anheuser-Busch does not get involved in the management of the NFL, its players or operations. However, I will be sure to document your concerns and share them with the appropriate departments at our company. Thank you again for the e-mail, Chid. I hope you have a good week."
