A car salesman in suburban Chicago has been fired for refusing to remove
a Green Bay Packers tie that he wore to work the day after the Packers beat the Chicago Bears to
advance to the Super Bowl.
John Stone says he wore the Packers tie to work Monday at Webb
Chevrolet in Oak Lawn to honor his late grandmother, who was a big Green Bay fan.
sentimental gesture did not impress his boss, Jerry Roberts.
Roberts says the dealership has
done promotions involving the Bears and he was afraid the tie could alienate the team's fans and
make it harder to sell cars.
Roberts adds that Stone was offered five chances to take off the
tie but he refused.
