Did you see the NFC championship game where the Green Bay Packers whooped up on the Chicago Bears? Well, it’s obvious that the haters at Webb Chevrolet in Oak Lawn, Il., saw it and they were not exactly showing good sportsmanship afterwards. The next day when one of the guys showed up in a Green Bay Packers tie, the boss ordered him to take it off. He said “Hellllllllll no! That’s my team!! IN YO FACCCE!” (loosely translated)
But seriously, according to CBS, the tie that John Stone wore to work really upset his boss, Jerry Roberts, enough to make him fire him for refusing to take off the tie. Hopefully, Stone will get a phone call from Roberts apologizing for his stupidity…but it’s not likely. You know how people can act about sports. Remember the 17-year old who was made to take a test on the floor because his teacher was mad at him for wearing a Denver Broncos jersey in Steelers country?
Roberts felt that it would be harder to sell cars to prospective buyers with one of the salesmen wearing a tie that added insult to injury in Chicago Bears country. He told Chicago Sun Times that the tie was “salting the wounds” of the fans that would come to buy cars. Read the full story here. Does anyone know the laws for franchises? He may not be breaking any laws, but he most certainly looks adolescent in his approach to addressing Stone’s refusal to remove his tie. Sore loser! After all, the guy would lose his commission if no one wanted to buy a car from him.
