Eagles sponsors reappear on web site

Darren Rovell of CNBC, who first reported the disappearance of the corporate sponsors from the Eagles’ official web site, advises that the list of logos and names has suddenly reappeared, Doug Henning style, on the page devoted to the team’s corporate partners.

Also, we’ve noticed that the “corporate partners” link has been restored to the list appearing beneath the “Team” tab on the Eagles’ site.

So either the Eagles tried to subtly protect their sponsors and realized that the cover up was only drawing unwanted attention to the issue, or someone responsible for the content on the web site thought he/she was doing the franchise a favor and acted on his/her own.

Or maybe it was all a coincidence.

    Gallagher the comedian looks like the late Doug Henning. Not as much as Mike Florio looks like George Stephanopolous, though.

    Or it could have possibly been just routine maintanence on the website. People put way too much emphasis on little things such as this. Its not like they could hide their sponsors, sponsors are sponsors because they WANT the team to acknowledge them. Duh!

    I’m coining VickCat right now. It’s so lame that the media is sure to fall in love with it immediately.

    Dietz & Watson, the Philly cold-cuts maker, says:
    “Michael Vick’s actions were reprehensible and cannot be condoned. He was appropriately punished for what he did. That said, as a family business, we were moved by Coach Reid’s comments about his own family situation and the importance of second chances in people’s lives. It is our intention to continue our Hometown Heroes partnership with the Eagles for the 2009 season. To end that partnership would deny Eagles fans the opportunity to publicly recognize and salute the brave men and women in the military who serve our nation with honor.”
    So again, it’s apparent this company thinks it’s vital that a convicted felon help the people of Philadelphia to honor people who serve in the military.
    Although to be fair, these companies were certainly blindsided by the signing…

    jesus, enough about this piece of garbage. i get sick of looking in my rss feed and seeing this tard’s name.

    No need, I went to http://www.sackvick.net, they have a list of the Eagles sponsors and whom to contact to let them know how you feel about the Birds signing this POS. You can even sign a petition.

  12. Devils Advocate says: Aug 15, 2009 1:36 PM

    If I was a sponsor I think I would need to be very cautious as the Eagles should be now known as the:
    PHILADELPHIA “BEAGLES”.

  13. AmhaTek says: Aug 15, 2009 1:45 PM

    Fan_of_Four, isn’t there a better cause in this world you could dedicate your time and energy too? Really, the biggest issue on your plate is Vick playing football again? What kind of person goes around calling strangers POS, i know you think you know Vick but you dont.

  14. PhillyHouse says: Aug 15, 2009 2:01 PM

    I love this country for millions of reasons. Chief among them is the right to protest.
    But if you protest Vick, be careful. Your team probably has a wife beater, a DUI culprit, or any in a laundry list of criminal mishaps.
    The Phillies have a wife-beater (Brett Myers). But the fanatics had no problems with him when he had a good playoff run. In fact, no one brings up his heinous act.
    If you despise Vick, I hope you despise all who deviate from justice.

  15. BlackBerryStorm says: Aug 15, 2009 2:26 PM

    Well said PhillyHouse!!
    Like it or not he has been given this opportunity and I hope he makes the very best of it. I applaud Andy Reid and the Eagles organization for having enough back bone to make decisions with their own minds and not bowing down to any other outside influences… I hope to be the first to rock a Philly eagles Vick Jersey and they aren’t my team but I’m gonna buy one just as soon as they hit the market

    Well, look at all the plants who’ve come out to the message boards to defend the indefensible Vick. Not gonna work. You can pull all the relative-morals crap you want, but the truth is he’s dirt and he’s done exceptionally vile and evil things. Squirm all you like, it’s going to stick.
    Thanks for the tip on the sponsors. Time to go write some letters, stop buying some products, and pass the word along to others.

    BlackBerryStorm says: “I applaud Andy Reid and the Eagles organization for having enough back bone to make decisions with their own minds and not bowing down to any other outside influences.”
    Then why did they sign him with even watching one workout?

    Petitions are for tools. Go away.

    @ redsquare: I’m not defending Vick. He had done “vile and evil things.”
    But if you boycott Vick, I hope you are prepared to ban any product endorsed by someone who spent time behind bars or has done “vile things.” Who is your team? Who do you listen to on your iPod? What movies do you watch? Let’s see if you are as consistent as you think you are.

    Then again for Lurie to backtrack the way he has it is obvious a ploy to create money. He made the sponsors a bigger target by his actions.

  21. as big as a hat says: Aug 15, 2009 4:50 PM

    I hope Dietz & Watson gently kill the animals they turn into cold cuts, or Mr. Vick might be forced to protest against one of his employer’s sponsors.

  22. kesc0701 says: Aug 15, 2009 4:52 PM

    I agree with you AmhaTek. There’s really better things to do in life then devoting your time trying to bring someone down. Give the man a second chance for real. People are such hypocrites, quit acting like you’ve never made a mistake in life.

  23. VoxVeritas says: Aug 15, 2009 6:26 PM

    “People are such hypocrites, quit acting like you’ve never made a mistake in life. ”
    I never bankrolled an interstate gambling ring, if that’s what you mean.

    “I never bankrolled an interstate gambling ring, if that’s what you mean.”
    No, you’d have to leave your mother’s basement to do something remotely close to it, good or bad. Of course, before you even do THAT, you might want to take a shower to clean in between those sweaty fat folds and shave that neckbeard, hillbilly.
