Giants And Jets Made Right Decision To End Negotiations With Allianz
New York, NY, September 12, 2008 … Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), issued the following statement in response to the announcement that the Giants and Jets have ended negotiations with the insurance company Allianz for the naming rights to their new stadium in the Meadowlands:
The New York Giants and the New York Jets heard the concerns of their fans and others and made the right decision to end negotiations with Allianz for the naming rights of their new stadium.
The decision shows sensitivity to the fact that the greater New York area is home to a large number of Holocaust survivors and their families and World War II veterans, who live with the painful memories of that time.
The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
