Adult Entertainment Company Wants To Sponsor Texans Practice Jerseys

Now that NFL teams are trying to defray the evaporation of advertising revenues from the likes of the car companies, the financial services industry, and Budweiser, they’ll necessarily be opening the door to overtures from businesses with which the NFL wisely won’t want to do business, under any circumstances.
And one such company already is knocking.  (With a fist.  We think.)
Zero Tolerance Entertainment, which makes and markets adult videos, claims that it has approached the Houston Texans regarding the availability of marketing space.
Last week, the Texans acknowledged that they are seeking to take advantage of the new rule that allows NFL teams to allow corporate logos and/or messages to infiltrate the official team practice jerseys.
In a press release circulated by Scott Stein, the company’s director of marketing, Zero Tolerance claimed that an offer involving “several zeros” was made to the Texans.
“Every team in the league starts the season by saying, that they’ll have Zero Tolerance for losing,” the press release states.  “While our offer may not be taken seriously, there is some undeniable synergy between the NFL and the name of our company.”
It’s not that the offer won’t be taken seriously.  After all, the NFL and its 32 franchises are trying desperately in a down economy to raise money through a new universe of revenue streams.  The problem is that the Texans at best will use the offer to leverage someone else into offering more money, since the consequences of doing business with an adult entertainment company would offset any profits arising from such a deal.
Still, teams like the Texans should brace themselves for an onslaught of offers from business interests anxious to take advantage of the availability of advertising space that the traditional advertisers don’t have the money to buy.

    Since this is Vox’s actual home team, I wonder if he has an opinion? Robble

    If this “Zero Tolerance Entertainment” only markets vids that feature ultra-hot vixens with tasteful implants goin’ at it like animals in heat, as opposed to all the boring amateur schlock that has proliferated the scene in recent years, then more power to ’em. The implants can be huge, now that I think about it.

    I think that it would be funny to see ‘BUKAKE’ on the sleeve.

    The Pink Taco thing doesn’t fly, but this could? Naaaaaah.

    Cue Al Michaels and his “exploit the hole” line in T-minus 3 months…

    An adult entertainment company wants to sponsor the Texans’ practice jerseys?
    Again, the possibilities are endless….. they could sponsor the TE’s personally…. perhaps the poor sap who’s worn #69 can get some bonuses. What else is there?

    No one wants to be at the bottom of a pile in practice with the words “Gang Bang” on their jersey.

    This is clearly a bad idea. Next thing ya know, they’ll have strip clubs in Texas. 😉

    T.O. should have waited to sign with the Texans. After appearing in the background of the Bang Bros promo stuff, he would fit in nicely with the porn theme.

    Ontario Smith and his agent are talking to the Texans about becoming the first signing after the endorsement deal is finalized.
    He’d sign with the agreement that Whizzinator sales would cover the cost of his contract. . ; )

    Ride em’ Cowboy!!!

    These porn companies make offers they know will never be accepted just to try and get into the news, such as offering Palin and the Octomom porn deals and asking for a bailout. The NFL is way too concerned with it’s image to let a team promote adult entertainment. If they can’t promote alcohol or tobacco I’m pretty sure this would be taboo as well.

    I don’t know about the Texans, but Florio – you REALLY need to investigate getting sponsorships on PFT. Anything that lets you get rid of the fat gut ads would be great, but a little cutie flashing her heynanny would be AWESOME!!!

    “Since this is Vox’s actual home team, I wonder if he has an opinion?”
    Oh yeah, I always have opinions. Here are a few.
    1 – Eagirl fans are stupid. They can’t count, can’t spell, and they let a stranger that they’ve never met like me creep into their thoughts 24 hours a day.
    2 – A few days ago you said I was from Wichita. Now you’re saying that I’m from Houston? Here’s an idea. If you want to know where I’m from, just ask me. It’s not a national secret.
    3 – see #1.

    Agree with the first comment, also is Kianna Doior is in one.

    Isn’t this (Porn and Football.) just like George mixing food and sex? Your slipping Mike. “Is that pastromi?”
