Thus far, the NFL hasn't lost a single sponsor in light of the Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson scandals, which is something that's obviously great for the league. But according to The Hollywood Reporter, there have been several sponsors that have expressed concern over the way that the league has handled both situations—and several others that have asked the NFL not to run their commercials at certain times.
Specifically, there have been a few companies that have requested that their ads not run during Ravens or Vikings games. There has also been at least one sponsor that asked CBS not to run one of its ads near a segment that the network aired on domestic violence before a Thursday Night Football game. And sponsors like Anheuser-Busch and PepsiCo also seem to be keeping a close eye—a very close eye—on the NFL at the moment with regards to how they're handling everything that's going on with Rice and Peterson.
As we mentioned, no companies have pulled their ads from NFL programming just yet. But it's something that's obviously worth keeping an eye on in the coming weeks and months as the NFL continues to try and recover from the Rice and Peterson situations.
