More Contact Info for Philadelphia Eagles Sponsors
Oddly enough, the Eagles seem to have removed the list of corporate sponsors from their website. Fortunately... teh Google, I haz it. Let's get straight to the festivities using the current information from the Eagles' website. Links go to contact information/form whenever possible.
VERY IMPORTANT: Don't be rude. It's not likely the Eagles consulted their sponsors prior to signing Michael Vick, so this is pain they did not invite upon themselves. Simply let them know, politely but firmly, that you cannot use their products/services while they provide financial backing for the Eagles.
Got additional contact info? Twitter? Let us know in the comments.
First and foremost, don't forget to contact the Philadelphia Eagles themselves.
LARGEST SPONSOR/STADIUM NAMING RIGHTS:
MAJOR ("FOUNDING") SPONSORS:
94 WYSP Radio

Chrysler Note: Chrysler also owns Jeep, but because they are listed as separate sponsors I will include contact information for both.
Comcast (Note: link provided by Eagles' site is incorrect)
Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia
Dietz and Watson
Twitter (They pay someone to tweet about cold cuts?)
Heineken (Not a direct link to contact form, site uses frames. Ugh.)
Twitter (May not be monitored, no tweets since June)
Twitter (May not be monitored, no tweets)
Independence Blue Cross/Blue Shield
Twitter (Note: J&J/Merck makes Pepcid)
The Original Philadelphia Cheesesteak Co.
The American Red Cross
UPDATE: The Red Cross has been removed from the Eagles' list of sponsors on their site. However, we have no confirmation from the Red Cross that they have withdrawn sponsorship, so until then... game on.
UPDATE: A spokesman for the Red Cross says that they were listed on the sponsors page by mistake. This would certainly makes sense given that charities don't usually sponsor football teams and god knows there were lots of other mistakes on that Eagles' sponsors page, including links that are downright wrong. So it looks like the Red Cross is off the list. They do have blood drives in conjunction with the Eagles but I do not believe they provide financial support to the Eagles, and I don't see any problem with the Eagles hosting blood drives!
SCA North America
Note: Tastykake is a known friend to animals and also a sponsor of the PSPCA. I feel badly that the Eagles sprung this on them.
Teva Pharmaceuticals USA
Thomas Jefferson University Hospital
UPDATE: Have found some media sources that list Staples and Canon as sponsors - can anyone provide confirmation of this? I have confirmed that Staples used to but have no confirmation of current sponsorship. Canon's sponsor web page does not list the Eagles.
UPDATE: Twitter Tip!
When using Twitter to contact companies, don't start your tweet with their address, put it a little further in. This way all of your followers see the tweet, which helps more people discover the boycott.
This tweet will be seen just by Pepsi:
@pepsi Please reconsider your support for the Eagles, I will not be buying any Pepsi while you sponsor them.
This tweet will be seen by Pepsi and all of your followers as well:
Hey @pepsi, please reconsider your support for the Eagles, I will not be buying any Pepsi while you sponsor them.
And finally... hug your dogs today. Help some less fortunate ones by volunteering for your local shelter or rescue group (who could probably find a use for any products made by the companies above that you'd like to get out of your house). Please consider donating to groups you respect with the money you won't be spending with Eagles' sponsors!
