Contact Philadelphia Eagles sponsors about Michael Vick

by Therese on August 15, 2009

in Dogs

So, are you upset about the Philadelphia Eagles decision to hire Michael Vick? If so, why not write to the sponsors of the team and ask them to pull their sponsorship? I have to wonder how many of these companies were upset by the announcement – I hope many of them were! If they hear from enough people they do something about it. If you write though, be civil, and remember they’ll be more apt to read your email if it isn’t nasty.

my tv will never ever be on a channel where vick is involved in any part of it sidelines or stand by. I dont understand how you can over look what this animal did to other animals. he is and always will be an animal abuser.I hope you come to your senses and give him a good hard boot down the highway,he and any team that supports him deserves no one to root for an animal abuser. I pray that God can see thru all of you. and let you get what you deserve no audience and no wins.I wont watch i know that.a lot of people i know feel the same way. i wish you the worst of the worst.Vick doesn’t deserve anything.except to be thrown to tha animals he and hie cronies created.Get rid of him he doesn’t have a decent bone in his body!!!

I have already written to the Eagles telling them I will boycott their sponsors for signing this monster to their team. It strikes me that Vick is not sorry in the slightest for his actions; he is only sorry he was caught. Children look up to sports figures as role models; Vick is a felon who used pain and suffering for sport. He is a nothing–least of all a role model.

Thanks for the Eagles sponsors info on your webste. I spent the whole morning writing to these people, expressing my displeasure with their support on the Eagles in lieu of their hiring of Vick. I don’t know how much good it will do, but I feel much better!

Vick is a monster. He’s no different than serial killers where they start their first kills on pets and animals. If he hadn’t been caught, he’s still be doing it. Boycott everyone involved with the PA Eagles.

Susie August 17, 2009 at 3:53 am

Thank you so much for posting the names and contact info for the sponsors. They’re nowhere to be found on the Philadelphia Eagles site, so I imagine that there is at least a bit of a groundswell of protest. Absolutely agree that Vick is only really sorry he got caught. He should never be seen as anybody’s hero.

I WILL BE SWITCHING FROM COMCAST ASAP< and any other sponsor of the Eagles and especially Vick- or should I rename him SICK,

i will be using only products not conneted with either of them- even if they should boot his butt out- TOO LATE, even entertaining the idea is enough to make me cut all ties with comcast or any other of the sponsors

Here is the reply I got from Pepsi…

Dear Bill,

Thank you for contacting Pepsi-Cola Company. We certainly appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts with us.

As you may know, Pepsi does not have a relationship with Michael Vick. In fact, we have never worked with this individual. However, we do agree with the NFL that Michael Vick’s illegal activities, for which he was convicted in 2007, were cruel and degrading.

The NFL has said that Mr. Vick has been reinstated to the league on a conditional basis and will be considered for full reinstatement by mid-October based on the progress he makes in his transition plan. As sponsors of the NFL, we have the utmost confidence that the senior leadership at the NFL will continue to appropriately address this issue.

Once again, many thanks for contacting us and please be assured that your comments have been shared with the appropriate individuals within the Company.

I have emailed every one of those consumers (with exception of the beer companies…I dont drink so they wont miss me) telling them that as long as they support the Philadelphia Eagles and as long as the Eagles employ Vick, I will no longer do business with them in any way. I currently use comcast and verizon. I am leaving comcast immediately and will leave Verizon as soon as my contract is up…unless they change their mind. Do these people realize how one literate woman with WAY TOO MUCH TIME on her hands can slowly bankrupt a company? And I bet I’m not the only housewife with this mission! I’ve seen it happen…the power of one! I love America!

I also wrote to the Mayor and Council President Verna of Philadelphia – Mayor Michael Nutter and City Council President
saying that I would not be visiting the lovely city of Philadelphia because of Michael Vick. I said I knew it wasn’t Philly’s fault that the Eagles signed him but that Jeffrey Lurie did a disservice to the whole city and state by hiring Vick. How could I walk around the city and not see posters of Vick and the Eagles plastered everywhere and still enjoy myself?

I also wrote the Philly Chamber of Commerce and Tourist Board as well and told them why I wouldn’t be spending my tourist dollars in their city and state.

thank you for this info… i will boycott all these companies! what michael vick did to these “victims” should be inflected upon him! sorry @zz nfl for caving in. i have went to all the links that pertain to me (companies that USED to have me for a customer) to let them know they can no longer count on my business! as a hair dresser i plan on letting all my customers the option of taking a printed list of sponsers to the eagles… in case they too would like to join the boycott. tell your friends and send them links to this page!

i, too got the same letter from pepsi – i responded how i’ve already seen their stupid letter but i’m buying only coke from now on – i bought pepsi if the sale price was low – but now ill suffer the loss for my preferred product! no more taco hell or kfc for me either. kfc already was on my boycott list for not honoring that oprah coupon ordeal… my shop is very close to a kfc… they had enough grilled chicken to sell but none to honor the coupons… mother’s day was so bad at that store police had to direct traffic into the shopping center. one would think mom on her special day deserves better than fast food! im boycotting all resturants that only sell pepsi products as well! they need to be sent a heads up too! when they speak is pepsi okay – i’m walking out!

I find it ironic that the NFL and Eagles will give a second chance to an serial animal abuser, mutilator and killer. However, the MBA would not give Pete Rose a second chance for gambling. He was stripped of his Hall of Fame staus but an animal killer is allowed to represent the NFL. Philadelphia is called the City of Brotherly Love. Apparently, their love does not extend to animals. Anyone who can look the other way while animals have been tortured, mutilated, and murdered are as sick as Vick. If Vick had treated humans in this manner people would demand his firing but because it is animals people look the other way. It is time we as a society stand up, prosecute, and persecute people like Vick.

It is also important to call Dick’s Sporting Goods and let them know that you are glad they are not caring his jersey. They are keeping track of the calls so this is all going to work I feel it!

i cannot understand why anyone would hire this killer. if you can be low enough to kill defenseless animals, whats next(lets not forget O.J) this socalled man needs to just go away and hope that GOD FORGIVES HIM. we as humans(unlike vick)need to boycott anything to do with that dog killer, i know i am

Youpeoplearefools August 22, 2009 at 1:30 am

You people make me sick. How dare you judge a fellow human being so harshly even after he paid his debt to society. Get over yourselves, and let the man live his life.

You are all wasting your time contacting these companies. The majority of American citizens are sensible enough to see that Vick has done his time in prison, and deserves the second chance the NFL, and the Philadelphia Eagles organization has been kind (and brave) enough to give him.

You people need to take a long look in the mirror, and ask yourself why you think you have the right to condemn a man to living hell, or ironically torture and death.

Also, I was no fan of Michael Vick at any point in his career until the Philadelphia Eagles signed him. I disliked him heartily when he was a Falcon. I’m not sure if I like him now, but one thing I do know, is that I am behind him and rooting for him because of people like you. People who want him to die. My point, you people created fans of Michael Vick. Normal people hate hearing what you have to say. I for one will laugh and make jokes about you when ESPN shows coverage of protestors at Eagles games this year. Protest all you want. Your actions will result in nothing but more fans for Vick.

Also, your plan has a rather ignorant flaw. Yes yes, it’s cute that you have decided to boycott the companies sponsoring the Philadelphia Eagles. But you realize that the only reason the Eagles could sign him was because NFL commissioner Roger Goodell allowed Vick to become a free agent again. My point, you people should boycott anyone sponsoring the NFL in its entirety. I mean, if you’re going to do something, at least have the sense to do it right.

Judge and you also will be judged.

Don’t bother replying to this, I found this website completely by accident and I don’t plan on ever returning. Unlike you people, wasting time is not a hobby for me.

In a previous comment that Marie made on 8/19, you are not the only housewife with WAY TOO MUCH TIME on your hands. I have also been on a mission and haven’t stopped since the announcement. I will NOT buy from any sponsor that supports the Philadelphia Eagles. Make it the power of two!!! We love America! Marie, I notified the beer companies, so that is taken care of.

Ty. I am so glad people are taking a stand against this person.
The implication that he should get a second chance is amazing. What was the second chance he gave his animals?
A bad judgement call? A bad judgment call happens once or twice, it does not continue for years. He cried himself to sleep many nights. Yea, right! His highly paid PR people prepared a statement for you to memorize. Hit all the heart spots. IT DOESN’T FLY!
I have already stopped drinking Gatorade and/or G2. I will not purchase, use if someone else purchases any item from any sponsor of the Philadelphia Eagles, and I will not spend money in Philadelphia. (I had a planned trip there for a book research project I am doing)

Don’t most serial killers start by torturing and killing animals? I was shocked to see the names of some of the corporate sponsors. I, too, am a housewife with too much time on my hands. I intend to boycott any of the sponsors that I have used in the past, am going to write to inform them of my decision. I will also tell everyone I know to do the same thing.

Anna Bramel August 23, 2009 at 12:58 pm

I, as well as my friends and family cannot and will not buy products from sponsors who condone the actions of Michael Vick. he is a horrible human being and not fit to be a role modle for the future of our youth. his actions are unforgivible, and so are the sponsors who support him. The only reason he said he was sorry is because he got caught, fined and served a small amout of time. He knew what he was doing and did it for a long time.

June Edgerton August 26, 2009 at 2:10 pm

I am as disgusted as everyone else. Vick is worthless and the Eagles are just as bad for taking him in. I hurt every time I think of the unspeakable things he did to those poor, sweet dogs. I have written the sponsors – here is the newest response from Pepsi; they don’t appear to sound as apologetic as in the earlier response posted.(and contrary to what they say – I believe the ARE working with him??).

Dear June,

Thank you for contacting Pepsi. We sincerely appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts with us.

As you may know, Pepsi does not have a relationship with Michael Vick. In fact, we have never worked with him. It is truly unfortunate that one individual’s actions have eclipsed the positive contributions by so many NFL players who have used their celebrity for good and have done tremendous charitable work in their communities.

Once again, many thanks for contacting us and please be assured that your comments have been shared with the appropriate individuals within the Company.

Though Michael Vick served his time, that does not mean he should automatically get another shot at the NFL. Yes maybe he should be allowed to do some kind of work to earn a living. But no, he should not be allowed to re join an organization of athletes that should set a good example for young people in this country.The NFL is a joke. I am continually baffled at the decisions they make regarding players who break the law. Yes, they too are nothing but another greedy corporation. Is anyone accountable for anything anymore?

Like everyone else, I was shocked to see the names of the sponsors — I’m sending a link to this post to every animal lover I know, and I hope all of you will do the same. The fact that Pepsi has obviously prepared a form letter indicates that there has been some response. But there need to be thousands of letters before these people will take any notice. And hundreds of lost customers.

Many of you realize that most of these companies sponsoring Michael Vick manufacture products that we use everyday. Many of them claim to be family companies, but take a minute and ask your self; are our dogs not family members? Many people depend on their dogs in order to live like a normal person. I am going to hereby boycott all of these so called “family companies”. To those of you that think this monster should be forgiven because he did his time I say this: you may tell us animals lovers to “get over ourselves” and just let the man live because he did his time in jail, I will counter by saying, “let the murderers, rapists and child molesters that have served their time, become heroes and role models, the same way you are trying to make Vick a hero and role model. Many of you Vick fans may laugh at us and our efforts to push him out of the NFL, but we animal lovers will have the last laugh when you precious sponsors are shutting down and Vick is fired because they are losing buyers left and right. I now ask the sponsors, is money more important to you than the lives of so many animals? If it is, then you really do deserve to be closed down to take some time to rethink your morals.

vick is a scary person. according to the research animal killers have a high tendancy of killing people also. Will the sponsers drop him if he kills a human being? probably not money rules the rich. I AM DISCUSTED . I already dropped my contract with sprint and am making a list of the rest of the sponsors to not any business with.

I 100% agree with the reinstatement of Vick. Its funny how people can be so blind. He did his time. Their is people in the NFL that raped and killed PEOPLE and they did less jail time then michael. HAlf of these people can go open up their refrigerator an you will find meat product. How you think they get that? Its a shame people care more about dogs then humans.
