Due to a number of NFL players protesting against our country, anthem, and flag, the league itself is in serious damage control, trying to keep both players and fans happy.
The fans responded with an NFL boycott, sending ratings tumbling and team owners pushing for a resolution.
Fans who want to send the NFL a message over the anti-anthem debacle have a new resource: a list of all of the NFL’s official sponsors. It is included below.
As we have seen, the NFL sided with the protesting players, as broadcasters on the NFL games and the anchors for the NFL Network condemned President Trump’s comments criticizing them, while praising the courage of the protesters. Even Rich Eisen, lead anchor for the NFL Network, went on an extended rant to convince viewers that the players were morally right and President Trump was the truly disrespectful one.
The NFL Network pushed the “unity” idea, tweeting out pictures of the protesters and using the “unity” theme, and attempting to make President Trump the villain.
Players, coaches and owners came together to showcase unity across the NFL.

As protests spun out of control, the NFL did their best to portray protesters in the most positive light. They then announced Sunday afternoon that they would run a promotional video called “Inside the Lines,” which was produced last year, during the Sunday Night Football telecast. They had hoped the video would somehow calm everyone down, but the video itself did little to address the real issue of the protests against the flag and the anthem, which many see as an attack on our troops and our principles of freedom.
Regardless of how the NFL wants to portray the protests, fans who want to have their voice heard can now contact the official sponsors of the NFL and let them know their thoughts.
This list is compiled from a number of sources, including the NFL and the companies listed. If we are missing an official sponsor, or one of these companies is no longer a sponsor, please let us know and we will update the list.
Please be respectful when contacting these companies. Most do value your opinion, and do not deserve your anger. Direct that to the NFL and the players.
This list is constantly being updated, so please check back and share it.
