And here’s a response from another Philadelphia Eagles sponsor, Pepsi. . .
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.
