Contact Info for Philadelphia Eagles Sponsors

For Your Entertainment
Philadelphia Eagles Sponsor List



My buddy John over at For Your Entertainment has posted the corporate sponsors of the Philadelphia Eagles. If you are as disgusted by the rehiring of Michael Vic as I am, let the sponsors know. Go ahead, cut and paste the note I've been sending.

For Your Entertainment: More Contact Info for Philadelphia Eagles Sponsors

"It has come to my attention that you sponsor the Philadelphia Eagles professional football team. In a society where we allow greed to override our common sense and dignity, it is up to the individual to do what he can to right wrongs. As a ardent hunter and outdoorsman, I am aghast that your company supports the Philadelphia Eagles. I will not purchase from nor have anything to do with any company that sponsors the Philadelphia Eagles and by extension Michael Vic. Though he may have served his time, and or seen the light, as he says, the fact remains that he committed heinous crimes, torturing dogs for no reason other than his perverse pleasure. That companies such as yours condone this type of corporate accounting is beyond belief. Again, I regretfully must refuse to purchase any of your products, or any of your subsidiaries' products.

Sincerely,
Albert A Rasch"

Thanks for that - the PEs shouldn't sponsor cruelty to animals, even at a remove.

As a Buffalo Bills fan, I was sorely disappointed when they took T.O. But, this puts all that to shame.

My Mom's answer to this was: Well, what do you think they'd do? The NFL takes druggies, rapists, and thugs. Why would they not hire him?

Albert,

I'm a little torn on this one. I don't condone animal cruelty whatsoever, but the man did serve his time. And like anyone who committed such a crime, he is now returning to a job to pay bills.

Dog fighting is a horrendous crime, there is no doubt about that. But it isn't like he murdered someone or ran over a pedestrian when he was drunk (can you say Donte Stallworth).

I'm torn. I see both sides of the issue, but I'm not at the point yet where I would not support an organization because they hired him.

And for the record, I'm not an Eagle's fan so there is no bias in this message:):) I'm from Michigan. We don't even have an NFL team that can win one game.

Mr. Rasch
I came across the following link which explains why the Eagles deleted/reinstated their corporate sponsor page.

The American Red Cross recently sponsored a blood drive with the Eagles, but is not a team sponsor.

And Josh, as an Eagles fan to a Bills fan, I can only wish you the best of luck with that whole T.O. experiment.
