KUSA’s Drew Soicher has a great point in his recent web article. All the Denver Broncos Super Bowl 48 champion shirts should have gone to local people in need.
The clothes went to people in need overseas and that’s a good thing, but what about those living in the U.S.?
Honestly, does it matter if we see people wearing clothes of sports events that didn’t happen? It shouldn’t.
The league used to destroy the merchandise, but now works with World Vision and ships it overseas. Why not drop it off at a local organization that helps needy people.
Maybe the NFL should avoid printing the clothes until the game is over. That’s never going to happen because businesses need the new gear as soon as possible because the demand is high.
It shouldn’t stop with the NFL. Baseball, basketball and other pro sports should do it.
What do you think?
