Beats NFL Ban


The NFL makes a major move by placing a ban on Beats by Dre headphones… The recent ban is serious business… players wearing Beats during league related broadcast is an absolute no-no… see Colin Kaepernick’s $10,000 fine for wearing Beats in a post game press conference… well the reason… business… Welcome Bose to the NFL… they have become the exclusive provider of headsets for the NFL… This is nothing new for the NFL… see the Microsoft/NFL deal… like 400 mil to the NFL from Microsoft… yes the NFL are the true meaning of “pimps”… Now if they can only stop the their game announcers from calling the Microsoft product an iPad.

Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine reacted to the news of the ban… stating “What happened there, you have a tech company that’s culturally inept,” Iovine said. “There’s no one at the company that said, ‘If you ban these guys {Beats}, you’re going to look bad to the young people, and they’re going to look like superheroes even though they’re just pure capitalists—well they’re not pure capitalists, but they’re real capitalists and [they] sold that company to Apple—but you’re going to make them look like the underdog.”

Seems as if Iovine thinks this is not a good move for Bose… or just a great business deal for Beats
