    I anxiously await the day when beer sponsors go the way of tobacco sponsors. Of course, then we'll probably have "NFL, sponsored by Jimmy Johnson's Enhanced Johnson" or some crap.

    Does it really matter that either is the official NFL sponsor? Bud advertised during every NFL game anyways.

    This isnt like a NFL video game license, where it would essentially put coors out of business.

    If this means we don't have to see those guys doing fake interviews with former NFL coaches along with Mike Ditka, then I'm all for it.

    I actually enjoyed those commercials in the beginning. They got stale quickly though.

    My thoughts exactly. Great beers don't need the exposure by doing things like sponsoring the NFL. How many Shiner commercials have you seen?

    Shiners problem is they over charge for their beer. It is made right here in Texas yet they price it like it is an import. I can buy Yeungling lager (made in Pennsylvania) cheaper and it is better beer.

    the better the product, the more it's gonna cost. that's the way it goes.

    edit: sports excluded, obviously

    If you ask me the biggest problem is with how restaurants and bars treat it. I've seen it so many times along with Sam Adams as "imports". It pisses me off every time too.


    Far as A-B being the official beer sponsor. Could care less. I hate Coors anyway and will only drink stuff like Bud or Miller when I'm on a tighter than usual budget.
