That was a very physical series - more than 7 flagrant fouls (my last count) and 2 techs, and LeBron took some hard hits. So to call him a crybaby just for his comments about the Wizards targeting him is a little overboard, mainly b/c it's true...they did target him.

A friend of mine just sent me this email:
"I wonder if it is in their right to make the franchisee pay the $10,000 charity donation plus the loss each Cleveland franchisee takes on these 23-cent pizzas on Thursday. I've got to believe that Corporate is picking up the tab on this one for the damage control."
Thoughts?

Thank you so much for your well thought out comments. You just may be right. I will bet that Papa John's corporate servers are smokin, though!

Hey Joel. Nice topic. A few comments -

1. That was a very physical series - more than 7 flagrant fouls (my last count) and 2 techs, and LeBron took some hard hits. So to call him a crybaby just for his comments about the Wizards targeting him is a little overboard, mainly b/c it's true...they did target him.

2. From the franchisee standpoint, this is great PR for those in the D.C. area. However, Cleveland and surrounding franchisees likely did not fair so well . While this will not have a drastic impact in the long run, I would expect that, despite 23-cent pizza day and the donation (typical PR moves), Cleveland franchisees and those in other markets will feel a light blow b/c of the actions of a franchisee in a different market. That really bites (no PUN intended).

3. I know that using the corporate logo has its long-term benefits, but for the sake of legal/marketing issues, why not leave it out? Keep the colors and wording the same, even put the name/location of your local store on it as well. You're still having fun, just keeping all the focus on you.
