NFL sponsor Anheuser-Busch disappointed, concerned with NFL
Anheuser-Busch has not pulled any sponsorship yet.
From the Anheuser-Busch website:
We are disappointed and increasingly concerned by the recent incidents that have overshadowed this NFL season. We are not yet satisfied with the league’s handling of behaviors that so clearly go against our own company culture and moral code. We have shared our concerns and expectations with the league.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was indicted on a felony charge of injury to a child for hitting his four-year old son with a tree branch as a method of discipline. Early Saturday morning, Peterson turned himself in. He was released after paying a $15,000 bond.
The Vikings deactivated Peterson for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots, but the team released a statement Monday saying the running back will practice this week and is expected to play this Sunday.
