8-29 10am Don, Slap Ya Mama

Aug 29, 2014|

The NFL instructed Cox Sports Television to pull the Red Zone "Slap Ya Mama' advertising " in light of domestic violence issues" facing the league. The Saints played the Ravens last night. Their running back Ray Rice, was arrested for domestic violence in February. Do you see this as an example of making light of domestic abuse or is it an endearing way to compliment moms cooking? How much control should NFL have over ads, player excessive roughness, celebrations? Have they taken complete control of the sport for their own benefit and become the no fun league or is it still under control of the fans who support them? Jack Walker, Vice President of Marketing for Walker & Sons (home of Slap ya Mama) joined Don.

Nines year old age seventy participate in the dark war vice president and a marketing Paul Walker and sons which is the whole month slapped you momma Jack thank joining us that it. Talk about appreciate it. Thank you for having me this morning appreciate that. Felt about the product which aren't very good on the user and at a moderate to colors make that suggestion to you that you are witnesses may become operable or low sodium or an altitude so that they even. But but background on the process. Yes do we didn't you know we've been vacant seat any in 1996 which you know pepper and keep getting. But where small family business we became incorporated 2001. My mother is actually the owner of the company and my brother Taylor I'd vote. Basically runner in operation. And handle all the business. The company but we have that we specialize he's getting out there ought fish pride you boil. We have different mixes out there and just a lot of you know great to be here. We had a culture food products that we're trying to put out there and really you know. Let people enjoy. That that we you know that that people enjoyed experience you know our great culture that we yet here all the great food we have at our fingertips. Well liked and corporations that are very important aspect of promoting a product of new business is certainly advertising. Tell us about the advertising agreement entered into with who wasn't with Cox media whether it was yet seen. The NFL and I'll call so strictly an advertising and we knew it just in the network. The net third year we had a contract but yet keep. And network contract. Was in a two run commercials like. Normal broadcast stations do but it took me being that we really appreciated. Would he get he had awkward was that struck you moderate there. Yet for all eight pre heat in game. And that we did don't know about three years it's that third year and that we had a direct contact with. He would be ended court you know cut media at contract with the same kid to broadcast days. And that basically how all kind of played out. OK so what the controversy grows so hot that the chain of command over the Internet now in forming Cox media. It Cox media and then at the you what you contacted by the NFL and in what was it all the justification. There objection to doing that sabotage. Well my understanding in the air mailed gave up media phone call on August 18 at the Monday. Figured cold afternoon and a date column. Over the phone admire in. Connected on issues that in Beijing. They're big news poll Obama. On children and we network Cox or Tuesday morning about the ordeal. And we were you know apple bought the situation net. Why it had to be old you know oh what an. In our partner in the technical cocked me. And then we will cut it down by the ordeal and we yet. He would keep together and I think that we need to hear from and it fail. We can't have a phone call and it was in the group by late and yet there and there and say OK listen. We want to open from the sale and we never got in and that's Bill Belichick. You know from cops beating you know. Which you read earlier in the broadcast about how well he of the net but isn't that. The incident felt in the polls. Mean are advertisement. A that the Leo we ended on third day. And it failed issued a letter within the postal looking telling them it. He has been active pool ball on them and hit it I believe it in other broad net and on building and. Well we're really talking about several conditions you want about two Olympian. And this and that and the possibility continuing on you'll and it. But number two look dealing with desire that you can all be in the bill that being. Discriminatory and where they aren't something in there terminology and a sense that that they can actually control it from being advertised on program. Court Scott leads to get he'd. There arrangement with the Yemen now in the gulf threatened pulled program and probably state couldn't continue your on and yet we spoke with. And yet he. And it didn't shed any light on the back what day it though it would you had been out there in Baghdad but it it's my understanding that. Basically commissioner's office. I was. Like govern the whole thing through whatever pieces you know yep abide by. And I mean and the cockpit of the broadcast they're not gonna really try site. But it basically whatever the commissioners the to accompany them and the broadcast it happened. That it would every letter called into breached their contract with are not happy that we. Was there any discussion about having to pull your deputy old audio commercial. Because of Cho was that strictly on legal and strictly on them and in our commercials that date. I think what. I think what the problem that our on building and then. We're getting it like when you brought that picked up by the NFL network or there I'd like real that would it in the red zone and are mogul was out there. Bet you know who would be in picked up by broadcast so it would be spread all over the air on network called highlight real well. And that would be possible order audience outside of southern region in the region and yet he covers that they now reported their. Their problem then there was going to be reaching all these matches and detonating. Philip that it. I get more attention. Oh yeah well actually I mean you would have got a whole lot more department or that that worked it so you think it was a question. Well really the money that they felt like you should be paying them. Beginning all that it is it being widespread like that or what did in fact something that they felt needed discretionary and roll. The candidate they didn't agree with the men and didn't think it was in keeping with the NFL standards. Oh oh. And so I believe. You've known as the years. The last two years are the broadcast indicated out in on network in we were out on nationwide scale which is great it is great awareness. Would it happen now I think it was inner peace to defect it. Our brand is an in line with quote unquote in a failed standards. Unity. That it goes that we were appropriate. You know we don't really about network on Monday on the morning. You know we felt like being attacked because of our brand our heritage our culture and we war even. I think people don't understand the culture. And the opportunity to talk with you know explain to them. The whole theory. He mumbled and gain in the grind it out in. No we've never had any conversations with the NFL you know that would have been open that would have been nice had no contact order to get a better understanding what our brains and and what our opinions before they decide to. Cutter belt but now we never had any discussions with them about unions. Well for people that don't know the history of the names slapped you mumble would you explain it because obviously some people in the NL and possibly other people across country. Thought that this at some time to some type of domestic abuse. If you go. Right. You know optimum. Is an old saying that I have been here almost like wait a fool you can certainly compete. And it's not monitored is that the terror that phrase it used to describe them that the list of questions you know out of this world to me and you capped at. You know a slap in the moment and you know we we all play around that we have fun with it but for us it really you know it but it. We like your arm problems and slap on the back and it hit on the cheap you know we're nervous but users are sloppy model product group list. You know if they're definitely. Domestic violence if it was a brand name and at your you know. Your from the outing where did you get and understand what a comment from Brandon Wood and appreciated. On the Internet they will people last night game that was wearing slapped you mumble logos and pulled. Yet there there was no outward one of them that. There are. Yeah would have been nice smoke people everywhere we got together with thirty girl. Here in New Orleans and the Olympics I think it would help out there they earned it yet but think about 500. T shirts or. And is sold out much credit would there have been people out there after the game that night. Again. And delegates in that Elin had at that moment he sure that was really fun. We talked with Jack walk and vice president of marketing walker and so on the makers of the product called slapping moments I'll themselves embroiled in this. Go to Brazil between me and they'll Cox media in their company has or does not being able to use slap you mumble on appeal enhancements. Our Jack where you guys go from here is there any action you gonna say what you just in the count back off prominent. In the except there's new ground swell outside unexpected unintended. Advertisement publicity that you give me because this should. You we're we're talk he would see here's the fuel we can do. Lou talked with him. We're never gonna go to we'll probably never been in again. And moderate opinion. Just because. And it doesn't come down or wrong apparently. So widget in the patent and see how well the navy you know you got to resolve the contract and that we. Currently have with them. And try to put some of the marketing dollars that was a big engine in Belgrade let mom written into Kemp in that they can make you. Help with that. But yet at court again go with it was still undetermined. You know Ottawa. Speculate that what can happen. You know the contract being breached or would it himself alone out it. You know there's a lot of opportunities and Lotta options to choose from as a matter that in there and kinda your outlook on going. Exactly well it apparently looks like in the NFL is putting a mail all on field and and treatment than bananas probably the question that not come back whether it took a a product they find offensive according to the stand it's not. And I got to tell you very honestly pocket aren't built on human and a little bit annoying watching the game currently do but I mean as far as your product alone at noon and other commercial fine and dandy but. I just thought it did take a little bit away from the action on the field but thank you very good probably great marketing. I'll want to. I agree with ya outed by the distracting it well and packet in at Oakmont you know prompted a decade lows. We're not there with equipment that creepy and play out but next year we're not going to be doing the thing because they or distracting to you know. They you were in military court would have been fine. But the fact and the thing that out birds you know really. Really doesn't bother than we felt as though we need to let people you know make people aware that you singled out on practice. They were impeding our brand with that it which has been the third. Totally understand that Jack is well that was not given any reprieve not a explanation about anything which says that we no longer going to be able. Do it has been the reaction you got from all the people you spoken to product users. Maybe you retail wholesale distributors that that deal with the product. It is the response. Upton being critical. Really active in Chernobyl what to support that we really appreciate that they've become real strong with the it's been night defeat. And I know at an incredible. And doubt there's so. It that in the important you know interacting with them it really knows how they feel about it at all that it was a big it is great. And if that. And negative comments. Ego. Because of this coming up or even prior to this so I'll name just people. Total misunderstanding. The whole origin and used. Every now and then we come across the body that. It doesn't go to with a brand unfamiliar with the fray. And they. They have a little issue with it. And that we talked to any kind of explain our belt and explain to Brandon. Explain our culture and in the cotton gear they try to get an understanding of what it actually mean and it happened that they. It seemed to be like they're fine with that little I traveled the country don't who salute and we all come across somebody who Shalala the about it. And that what what we have a check expected him you know what flash mob mean. Didn't did more open to the product in they don't have a problem the brand after that. That just quit gently that you'll lose it there. I am in there are. I don't count. I signed cry and then you know our new Armenia and I sign your me your product name so action that. That when your pocket chart came on the market. My eight. Our daughter. Bought it in a kick out of my house and you did day it can not pass over my Diller. And my god it is if you have to eat Alain your game today at dance. To our people. Were trying to patch and are we get I know it. You know it's a marketing world. Yeah hate such a thin. Leading. I'm I'm I'm I'm starting in the heat it hasn't been that name but you know I mean. It is marketing law like he and there are there many people out there a lot of art you know all of our our customers and then to Brandon. Appreciate it Brandon the name and you know what worked out and you know they're going to be. And people up as an art in Europe and have been that. Bet that that the way of the world. You can't you change your opinion now that you've heard Jack explained what is indeed although it may be. It would aren't like you say a little people look at it that certain perception initially require a little bit of research and background to really understand that you change your opinion on the. Think it yet nor not stop it. Gee now I am here I don't. Need it. Okay not changed my dot on it at all and I you know that it is it different. Opinion but. If you'd like you shed in yet. To explain it and border. Absent in Q a lot of people. I don't think it is doing our area country in the and again in the opinion. Never in my. Vicky that's why this is wonderful country we live off we can all have our own opinion than you certainly probably yours and thank you expressing it we appreciate it. I attacked completely at chino on the line now Gina are you there. Yet at hand. It. On them either a guy. Born people. On an awfully he'd been in and year. I am and am married. But allied air at eight bit that plaque in momma is ridiculous. I think it was pretty. Ignorant. Adding that I'm not investigated. But it is a brand name and people and product and I tried it. I think it great. I mean come out and about it grade Internet chat. Without that there. May may oh yeah court. It. Saying that I can catch it even like eat like inning. By the bulb came on. I want barely older. I don't bring them in my account because they actually. But that you know. Mom and and it didn't like Islamic people file. Are. And I didn't. Want to talk between yardage on. Yep Eric. I'm happy to hear that you let our and you betray the that we are able to bring and I do appreciate all the work. And that you're you're right it is definitely a cultural thing and you know from people getting some people just don't send them. I do appreciate your support thank you so much. But actually call team we appreciate we got a break and it will be back in the objecting to. It probably should roar and I get in the got to take care of us on the right thing in the given issued common in your side of the story buried. So and and good luck with the product we thank you. Everything remark. Apparently Jack war is that you vice president marketing or or groups on. A slap your mama product but it is looking back at the news and you make do you. Feel the enhancement to they have north. What about the slap your mama name at the tension is that not into the cultural thing and the bigger question. In the end well unions that things maybe they shouldn't be involved as far as being discriminatory on rabbit sizes during. Football against as I told Jack walk the vice president of marketing for the company. Are you on that little boy is it distracting in the game and really not prefer not to see that of course it's. Coach someone who makes the list and the commercial. TV circuit not pose. 22 companies advertising products that stepping in the set to be in the world. But yeah of course that took to be able to bring it gains in due to cost down and all of that but I just think probably old Google what kind of agreed with that but as. The NFL discriminating sayings slap in my home is a term. And that it basically. Makes light of domestic abuse quote the argument is it's a cultural thing it's really an enduring way to compliment. Someone multiple in the chase to move partly due to see all of those issues and it would it help really becoming the you know partly. Cutting out all that type of following the lessening the that it sold the yield we know that the the more currently being pro are going to more challenges slowing the game down. Some people saying the common like football. Not letting the players do the celebrations that other problems and now that I bring the ball to call in sick so. 187 RE 6688908. Accidentally let sculptor Eric in it would yet to say Eric bank called the bank and what do you think well it's. Well today am I really do think there and I have so there's built in the bank city.
