Check Into Cash founder pulls ads from NFL games, denounces league as ‘unpatriotic’

CEO of Hardwick Clothes and payday lending chain Check Into Cash, Allan Jones, has recently come forward revealing that he is fed up with “unpatriotic” national anthem protests, explaining how he is done with advertising during NFL football games and sponsoring wardrobe options during broadcasts.

In a statement he released earlier, Jones revealed that his companies “will not condone unpatriotic behavior,” with other details showing that the CEO had directed his media buyer, the Tombras Group, to pull any of his companies’ commercials from NFL games “for the entire season.”

“For the 29 states we operate in, this isn’t much to them, but it’s a lot to us,” said Jones, adding, “The Tombras Group is our ad agency in Knoxville and our national media buyer for both TV and radio (for Check Into Cash) and don’t look for Hardwick on the NFL either.”

This doesn’t come as a surprise as Jones has been one of the most outspoken supporters of President Donald Trump, who revealed this Tuesday that he is “ashamed” of what’s going on in the NFL.

This comes not long after the commander-in-chief sparked some controversy over the whole situation this Friday when he asked the NFL team owners to fire protesting and disrespecting players, prompting the protests of hundreds of players which took a knee, sat or locked arms before the start of their games, over the course of this weekend.
