The NFL is back in the market for a new official pizza sponsor.
Papa Johns on Tuesday said it has mutually agreed to end its official league sponsorship, months after company founder and former CEO John Schnatter publicly criticized the NFLs handling of national anthem protests. Steve Ritchie, who replaced Schnatter as CEO in January, said on a fourth quarter earnings call that Papa Johns will shift its marketing dollars toward star players and its 22 partner teams within the NFL.

The NFL has less money for a slice of the pizza pie.
Good for Papa Johns..........
They are not doing anything other than making a business decision.
Papa John’s it is then.
Still retaining sponsorship of players and teams, just not the NFL Inc. To me, a rather minor adjustment in strategy.
Orville Redenbacher if he's smart.......
Yeah don’t question the SJW/NFL party line or else.
I say good for Papa John’s!
How about KFC or Church’s Fried Chicken to “fill the empty void”?
Maybe Antifa or BLM can start sponsoring the NFL? All three organizations share the same contempt for the USA. Would seem like a good fit.
I recall seeing the national anthem performed post season and one person of color was acting less than serious and rocking on his feet. Another person of color standing beside him delivered a sharp elbow in the ribs and he immediately straightened up.
What was even funnier about this episode is that neither one was an American, but they apparently understood the rich opportunity they'd been given here.
Popa John’s ought wipe the BLM/NFL off their shoes as they leave.
The Libs specialize in the production and distribution of Crabapples, Pity-Puddings & Sour Grapes. Maybe there’s a market for those with NFL fans.
I will eat at Papa Johns.
The Hell’s Angels?
Papas Johns is the best delivery pizza around here. Domino’s still tastes like cardboard. When I get lazy, it’s Papa Johns.
The NFL can kiss my @$$.
Papa Johns just save millions...
