Radisson Hotel Drops Minnesota Vikings Sponsorship amid Peterson abuse allegations

nfl
When the late Bernie Mac joked about “beating kids until the white meat showed” we all laughed, but that kind of beating is truly no laughing matter. Adrian Peterson is facing charges that his discipline went too far. Peterson contends he was simply doing to his children what had been done to him as a child. The Radisson Hotel chain has decided to suspend their limited sponsorship of the Vkings. Over the past few days we have heard pundits encourage companies to consider sponsorship of NFL teams and maybe this is the first company to do it, but will it be the last? Share your thoughts.

    The Radisson better tread lightly. This will eventually blow over, and the teams will still need a place to stay. If I’m the team owner and the Radisson very publicly does this to burnish their image at my expense, I’ll be staying at another hotel chain when I take my team on the road. Permanently.
