THIS is what can change behaviors---owners/players/sponsors understand grass-roots refusal to watch/buy/consume their products. Hits them right in the pocketbook.

Good on ya! And I hope they all suffer financially due to their actions, support, or "look the other way" attitudes.

Did they give a reason? Weird they are giving the refund to some and not others. I gave up on DirecTv last year after having them for 12 years. Now they want me back, offering me everything they should have to resolve a problem they created and an additional $200. No thanks, Dish is fine.

Make sure to watch your bill. I've cancelled it twice so far, calling again today. They keep taking it off my bill after I call then adding it back on the next bill. I have had them ten years and tried to switch xfinity a few months ago but they seemed even more screwed up than DirecTV.

For 6 weeks they didnt give a **** about my problem and resolving it. Then I left and I havent stopped hearing from them to come back for nearly a year now. Dish has worked flawlessly since it was installed. Only downside is they dont carry the Astros so I cant watch them when Im at my lake house.

How am I supposed to wipe my face or my rear end, wash the stains out of my cloths or my hair, brush my teeth, or make my pits smell fresh (all P&G products) after dropping papa johns pizza sauce and crumbs from my fritos all over me cuz I drank too much bud light while watching college football every Saturday since I'm boycotting the NFL now? Ignorance is truly bliss. Thanks for busting that bubble... dude just sucked all the fun out of Saturdays. Guess I'll go hunt or something.

Easy list to boycott. Nike doesn't make hunting stuff, under armor sucks, papa johns aucks, don't drink, play video games, don't use Verizon, McDonald's nope, and everyone else on the list as well.

That's why they are doing it right there. See if they don't refund then people are going to leave DirecTV period. They will go watch on Rabbit ears and Netflix and that a huge risk they want no part of.

If people knew how much of their bill went to these over paid cry baby athletes who want to rewrite what the Flag and the National Anthem mean people would cancel all cable services. I bet you $35 of a $100 cable bill ends up in the NFL and NBA and MLB etc.

This is why years ago they moved Monday night football to ESPN. They wanted to force football fans on to a cable bill. They want every American paying a cable bill period.

I'm telling you they the tv providers do not like where this is going with Hollywood and now athletes. Its making them very nervous. Us paying that massive cable bill each month is critical for them but they don't want you knowing it.

They were in trouble for something recently but reversed course after backlash. I think it was from pulling advertisements from the Hannity show because he voiced a conspiracy theory that young DNC stafffer that was killed at 4am walking down the street.

Let's see how they handle this! It should be a no brainer!
Yet somehow I bet they continue on advertising with them.

I don't think your list is accurate. The only vehicle company I see is Korean. No Ford, Chevy or Dodge. And I know you can get a Dallas Cowboys version ford truck here, so I would imagine that would hold true for all NFL markets.

Suggesting a boycott of all companies with NFL ties is virtually impossible, since they have made sure to entrain themselves into every aspect of our every day lives.

The world has truly gone mad.
