Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 03, 2014

A company CEO is out of a job after a video of him kicking a puppy sparked an online petition demanding his ouster. Centerplate, which runs food concessions at more than 300 stadiums, arenas and other venues, said Desmond Hague resigned as CEO after a company investigation into his "personal misconduct involving the mistreatment of an animal in his care." "We want to reiterate that we do not condone nor would we ever overlook the abuse of animals," said Joe O'Donnell, chairman of the board of directors for Centerplate.

Too bad we can't get the public to pay as much attention to the CEO abuse of humans as the CEO abuse of dogs.

One does not kick man's best friend for sport.

His resignation may soon bring a stop to all those flaming bags of dog excrement on his front porch...

Unless the guy was also doing a bad job, I don't understand why they would cave to this pressure. Nobody wants to buy things at stadium concessions as it is. They do it because they have no alternatives. Were people really going to stop going to events over this? I doubt it.

I don't think they were exclusively into stadium concessions though.

Looking a their website they have contracts with resorts, convention centers, cinemas, heritage (whatever that is), private functions, etc.

They also apparently have restaurant groups (again, whatever they are).

That being said, their website is horrible. All the links in the "The Network" section for North America are dead links.

I don't have much patience for people who kick their dogs. And while I doubt that it was the real reason that this persons employment was terminated, it is very hard for me to feel sorry about it.

Obviously some people do not live by their convictions and find it hard to understand others that do.

Because of this decision, the NFL recognizing and focusing on brain damage caused by impacts PLUS Dallas adding Sam I will actually pay to watch a game for once.
