so has played a certain word that Anheuser-Busch has met with the NFL . More and more information is coming out there and rebel. Who you know is up. Font of information on things like this points out that now one in every five Beers sold in America is a Bud Light. At all only 40% only a just spotlight at the up all the other Anheuser-Busch. Products just -- -- is one out of every five. Back in August of 2011. Anheuser-Busch in the National Football League . Inked a brand new six year one point two billion dollar pact. Between the two that the two parties. Which grants Anheuser-Busch exclusive use of the iconic NFL shield. In its advertising and promote and promotional activities. If Anheuser-Busch. Even linked the wrong way towards the National Football League as big a deal as the NFL list. Trust me this is one that sends shockwaves. If they do more than what was what was line from the James rounds on talk about stand up and yet if it's not talk and latins say enough that if if if it's real. If what they're saying publicly is the release and what they're saying privately to Roger Goodell is you better cleanest camping up now. He's they'd they'd better do the right thing on this too because I've decided I'm so low rates I'm gonna bully caught. Budweiser and the NFL until. -- but Thursday and -- -- an Iraqi and Budweiser 'til probably about 7 o'clock because I I gotta commute home by. Yeah they are headed to use -- Reggie Jackson expression they are the straw that stirs the drink. We don't know for sure -- the biggest advertiser but I would I would assume that's the case straight.

If Budweiser leaves somebody else's is is waiting in the -- the take their place at the NFL is not. Begging and pleading with sponsors like that think oh please we don't know we're gonna do if you leave us if they leave. In somebody else just waiting to have to step into the vacuum. My guess is there would be other Beers who would probably like to have the spot in the Q but can't afford the same tariff that Anheuser-Busch can afford. Anheuser-Busch can afford. You know six -- one point two billion dollar contract with the NFL I'm not sure number two on the beer list feels that the. That's him they can go -- until I watch you

as the afternoon has gone on I will tell yet that the NFL has responded. To the the Anheuser-Busch.

We are taking action and there will be much more to come on quote. I had no idea what that means. I just know that's what the National Football League has said in response to Anheuser-Busch. All pointed out by the way when Radisson. Suspended their their of commercial advertising the inability. -- elucidate what Radisson. Knew right away and I are similar to help her or hate -- I'd just say it right bullet went -- Anheuser-Busch starts wagging the dog here then then the NFL's when -- The blazing saddles where -- got to protect our phony baloney jobs gentlemen.
