MARKETING NEWS FROM THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Published November 14, 1994
REEBOK GOES PRO-LINE: This week's BRANDWEEK reports that "Reebok is expected to soon gain a top-level Pro-Line license" from the league, and -- pending approval -- to supply teams in New York, San Francisco, New Orleans, and Seattle with sideline apparel (BRANDWEEK, 11/14 issue). BACK TO SCHOOL: This week is National Education Week, and several NFL players will be returning to school as part of the NFL/J.C. Penny 4th annual "Take A Player to School" contest. Selected K-12 students will take local NFL players into their classrooms and schools for discussions on the value of education and Q-and-A sessions (NFL). LOVE AND MARRIAGE: Last night's "Married with Children" on Fox -- which featured former NFL greats Ken Stabler, Lawrence Taylor, Bubba Smith, Rod Martin, and Jack "Hacksaw" Reynolds -- was written around a promotion for Royal Crown Cola and the Pro Bowl. Donald Lenehan, Royal Crown's Senior Marketing VP: "We like the fact that [the show] has a bit of an edge -- a slightly controversial nature. We're trying to associate ourselves with something different than our big cola competitors would do" (Jane Von Bergen, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 11/12).
