retail news in context, analysis with attitude

In Monday Night Football action, the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Indianapolis Colts 3-27.
KC's View:
It is worth noting that the Radisson hotel chain yesterday announced that it is suspending its sponsorship of the Minnesota Vikings in the wake of child abuse charges against Adrian Peterson, who was benched for the weekend but then reinstated Monday, as the team said it would let the legal system take its course before reevaluating its position.

Radisson said it "is suspending its limited sponsorship of the Minnesota Vikings while we evaluate the facts and circumstances," and added that it "takes this matter very seriously, particularly in light of our long-standing commitment to the protection of children."

This is the only way change will take place in the NFL. If consumers pressure sponsors, and it begins to cost the league money … well, that'll be enough to force through some badly needed attitude adjustments.
