Help me understand Ashley Judd’s complaint with Chick-fil-A

ashley-chicken

Last night during Kentucky’s bludgeoning of Texas A&M, Ashley Judd waged war on Chick-fil-A for its in-game promotion in Rupp Arena. The promotion, which I believe is called “Fowl Shot,” gives away a free chicken biscuit to fans at UK home games if a player from the opposing team misses two consecutive free throws. It’s an awesome promotion because: a) everyone loves free food; b) everyone loves Chick-fil-A; and c) everyone loves when an opponent fails to put the basketball into the cylinder.

But Ashley Judd is not a fan of the “Fowl Shot” and she made that very clear to her 280,000 Twitter followers last night, when A&M’s Robert Williams missed two at the stripe midway through the second half. Judd tweeted, “Your promotion for fans to cheer against kids attempting free throws is tacky. Please find another in game promotion.”

This is where she lost me. Aren’t we at games to cheer for our team and root against the opponent? Shouldn’t we make noise every time an opponent is at the line? Shouldn’t we cheer when they miss? I would run out there and block a shot myself if I could. I want the opponent to miss every shot. I want them to play terrible basketball. That’s the entire premise behind sports. One team wins, one team loses. We want our team to be the winner by scoring more points. So what’s wrong with getting loud when a player on the other team is at the foul line? Does she have a problem with people waving their arms in the end zones, behind the baskets? I don’t get it. Ashley, of all people, should want Rupp Arena to be loud at all times. What happened to our “super fan”? And would she be complaining about this if it were a tie game with under a minute to go? No. You want the opponent to miss. That’s the nature of the game.

As for the promotion, I think it is a brilliant idea and in-game feature because it encourages fans to get off their feet (and Lord knows Rupp’s fans need encouragement) and get some energy going in the arena in the second half. I also think it is a great promotion because chicken biscuits are delicious.

That being said, the people sending personal attacks to Ashley are way out of bounds. Her mentions got pretty brutal, although she seemed to take them in stride with comebacks of her own. Criticize her for forgetting how sports work, but keep it all within the playing field. She is still one of our favorites and one of Big Blue Nation’s most loyal fans.

Moving forward, I think we can use this very small controversy to come together and promote real change, change that actually matters. Maybe, just maybe, if we come together and make our voices heard, Chick-fil-A will finally open on Sundays. That’s the real issue here.

    Agreed on all points. It is an awesome promotion, and Ashley is out in left field on this one, but why fight about it either way? The opponent’s free throws are not determining whether Israel or the Palestinians get Jerusalem or anything. It’s just for a chicken biscuit. Both Ashley and fans reacting to her need to catch their breaths and relax.

      The real conflict for me was being at the Ole Miss game where they have the same promotion…except it was only in the last 4 minutes. At that point, I almost was rooting for a UK player to miss 2 FTs so I could get a free biscuit – almost. I was definitely rooting for a UK player to miss the second FT to give Briscoe a shot at a 10th rebound.

      The funny thing at Ole Miss was that you got a free taco or something if OIe Miss scored 77. Humphries blocking Ole Miss’s final shot to keep them at 76 did not make the fans still there very happy…..

      memphis wildcat – and the point that Ole Miss is doing the same thing (and so is every other school in one form or another) is precisely why I don’t see grounds for criticism. If it were the norm to sit quietly and clap politely when an opponent made a free throw, and UK meanwhile shouted and got loud, then okay, maybe we’re being petty and should do away with it. But everyone else is doing it, and if Chick-fil-a weren’t promoting it, someone else would, or the PA people would do it regardless.

      Yep, ol ashley just using this as excuse to go after CF bc their politics are not in line with hers. Celebs haven’t figured out that we don’t care what they think and certainly don’t influence me. Look at most of their personal lives; one big ol nasty mess. Why would I care what they think or say? I might actually like them if they stick to entertaining and less politics. Makes me not buy what they are selling. Boycott them.

    Methinks Ashley forgot the difference in equality of opportunity (to make a free throw) vs. equality of outcome (to make a free throw). Kids have every opportunity to make their free throw, yet it is our job as opposing fans to influence the outcome. Love me some Ashley, but her stance stems from a key talking point of a PC culture driven by liberalism.

    I get Ashley’s complaint. She’s saying we should be cheering for our team to do well, not their team to do horribly. And the two are not mutually exclusive. She’s a classy lady, and classy ladies don’t cheer for other teams to fail, they just cheer for their teams to do better.



    • Sentient Third Eye

      Does that mean no booing when an opposing player does something we don’t like. Does that mean we can not longer hate Laettner? Where does it end?



    • Biglaw Dawgin'
      11:11 am January 4, 2017 Permalink

      There’s a difference between booing when someone does something you don’t like and booing a kid for no reason. UK fans generally handle their selfs with class. Just like we don’t throw drinks on the other team when they walk in the building or cheer for other players to break their legs. This isn’t Philadelphia. We want to win, but we’re not doing things out of pure spite or because we want to win at all costs. She’s just saying that giving a promotion for another team to miss two in a row is a step in the wrong direction for us. I tend to agree. Give a promotion when WE make 4 in a row or something.



    • Booby Petrino
      11:13 am January 4, 2017 Permalink

      missing a couple of free throws isn’t “doing horribly,” it’s just missing a couple of shots. Did A&M play horrible? Yes. But that promotion was planned long before they knew how badly they would play. If the game was tied, would it be bad to make noise while the other team shoots? Because that’s what the promotion was…get loud while they shoot, so hopefully they miss…and bonus, if they miss two you get a free biscuit! Basically what you are saying is only cheer for your team, do not make noise when the other team is taking shots.



    • Booby Petrino
      11:15 am January 4, 2017 Permalink

      the cheering after the miss shots wasn’t “ha ha you missed shots and are awful at the game.” It was “yay you don’t score points on us (which is the object of the game) and we get a biscuit!”



    • ClutchCargo
      11:40 am January 4, 2017 Permalink

      Also, I’m pretty sure A&M’s players had no clue there was such a promotion, so what’s the harm? All they know is that the crowd seemed happier than normal about the missed free throws. Don’t like it, don’t miss 2 free throws. Ha!

    Me thinks Ashley is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) because Trump won the Presidential election. She is still discombobulated from Trump’s upset victory. As a result her thinking as a member of Big Blue Nation has become temporarily distorted. Hopefully, she recovers soon.

    I think like most things that get thrown in the internet amplification tube, this got blown way out of proportion. Ashley is eloquent and doesn’t really need anyone to speak for her, but I will say that the word she chose was “tacky.” Not “horrible” or “egregious” or “reprehensible” or even “bad.” Tacky. Putting a bounty on a kid’s misadventures at the foul line is kinda tacky. Not the worst thing in the world, just sorta bad form from a sportsmanship perspective. She didn’t say fans shouldn’t yell when the opponent is shooting foul shots. I’m pretty sure she has when in the eRUPPtion zone. She didn’t say fans shouldn’t be glad or cheer when an opponent misses. We all do that. She just said the promotion by a major corporation that pays off when a kid screws up isn’t the best look or message to send for that corporation. Tacky. A lot of the blowback against Ashley is rooted in the fact that she’s unabashedly liberal and outspoken. A lot of folks in KY don’t dig that combination.

    My son and I attended a game at Rupp early in the season and really enjoyed how it got the fans excited. What is better is how no one cheers for a player to miss the second free throw if they make the first shot BECAUSE NO FREE CHICKEN BISCUIT.

    When watching games on TV we laugh at how loud the fans are in the second half when free throws are being shot because of this promotion. Great promotion, great food, Ashley just wanted some publicity. #KeepChickenBiscuitPromotion

    What hypocrisy, to say or take part of making noise and booing the other team when taking the foul shot is ok for fans, then say a company cant take part of that. Making noise and going crazy during an opponents foul (fowl) shot attempt is a good thing. Its a celebration for the fans and sponsers, and part of the game for the players.

    If the Cats were tied with a minute to go in the national championship game, I’ll bet she wouldn’t have those same views. The fact we were up 40 is her issue with it I think. She’s all about charity and helping the less fortunate. Texas A&M was definitely the less fortunate last night.

    Not so much a fan on AJ’s stance regarding CF promotion, but she has the right to say what she thinks. Perhaps it may indeed be wise to understand morals and ethics before proclaiming those that have them or have none.
    Do some research on the owners, and read the donations they have made, to understand what these fine Christians are trying to do to other Americans. You decide once you have a full appraisal of what is, and has been, going on for sometime, under the guise of Christian Faith.
    The most judgmental people I know are Christians, Those that own CF, based on the documented history, seem to be among those casting stones.
    I am not saying right or wrong, just take some time to investigate for a better understanding, then make your own decision, Not looking for miracles from anyone or deep revelations, just understand the position better, prior to condemnation.

    Ashley Judd is a vegetarian. My guess is
    that, as much as she is just a killer UK fan,
    her outrage in the “chicken biscuit promo”
    brouhaha has more to do with her beliefs
    about factory-farmed chickens than concern
    for the “tastefulness” of the promo in regards
    the feelings of an opposing player.

    Also, just because you don’t agree with a
    person’s ideas or politics, why is it necessary
    to not watch them in movies, or no longer
    want them to be an iconic fan? The great
    thing about freedom of speech is that all
    these opinions and ideas get to compete in
    the marketplace of ideas and images for the
    hearts and minds of the public. It’s only when
    this nasty “us against them” mindset takes
    hold that debate gets ugly, and, from a
    historical perspective, dangerous.

    First of all. Ashley Judd is a “famous fan,” not a super fan. Secondly, CFA worked with the athletic department for come up with this promotion. The promotion had to go through several departments to be approved.
    She doesn’t agree with CFA because of the conservative views. If they fed the entire city of Lexington, she would find something wrong with it.
    CFA is a privately owned company and they can only open on Tuesday mornings if they want. Why is it such a controversy that they are closed on Sundays?
    CFA is a good friend to the Universities across the country and do a tremendous amount of charity work.

    I see her point – it IS tacky.

    Have a promotion for holding opponents under 70 (or whatever) – fine.
    Have a promotion for “more than X treys” – great.
    Have a promotion for “more than Y blocks” – awesome.
    Have a promotion for “more than Z steals” – fantastic.

    Those are all postive actions by our players/team.

    This one is different – the promotion hinges on an individual player making a particular mistake. Speaking as the father of three HS/collegiate athletes, I don’t appreciate anything that singles out individual players in a negative fashion. It’s one thing for fans to harass and distract opponents within reason–that’s the ancient right of fandom–but it seems quite another to basically sponsor (or ‘corporatize’) poor play.

    It isn’t much in the grand scheme of things, but yeah, I’ll call it tacky.

      ukisgr8 Most Christians support marriage equality, so no they aren’t bigots. Anyone who tries to force their religion on others, especially on their employees, is in the wrong.

      I had a nice long response for you, twice in fact, but I have zero comment for your ilk. Move on, I wasn’t talking to you to begin with

      Don, I’m libertarian so I support 100% gay marriage, as a libertarian. As a Christian, from that vantage point, no way could I even begin to want to or try to justify it anymore than justifying Adultery.

      My ilk? What ilk is that? Rational and on topic?

      All christians are not bigots, but you certainly are.

      Chic fil a does NOT hate gays. The Bible does that. It is Gods word you have a problem with – NOT Chic-fil-a. BIGOTS are people who are utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion. THEREFORE you are a bigot yourself by not being tolerant of Chic-fil-a’s position.

      Really Hack? Did you talk to God directly?? Or are you referring to a book written by a bunch of dudes 2000 years ago that you’ve never actually read because I am quite certain you don’t read ancient Aramaic and Hebrew? You’ve read an interpretation of something that was translated multiple times and passed down like a historical game of telephone. We do not live in a theocracy and do not make laws based on religion. Stop trying to force your religion on others.

      So you are a bigot if you don’t support gay marriage? Get real.

      liberals only believe with free speech as long as you agree with them.

      You don’t have to support gay marriage, but you don’t have the right to ban it based in your religion because not everyone in the country practices your religion. Your religious freedom applies to and stops with you.

    I’m just confused as to why she’s just now saying something. Chik-fil-a has been doing this at every home game this season. If it was that big of a deal, she should have said something day one.

    She’s a socialist so she’s anti business, except show business, and I would assume the sponsors of her movies and such. And Jonthes, Chik-Fil-A has never made negative remarks towards anyone, just that they are christian company that shuts down sunday. However, I have forwarded a screenshot od this to the Chik Fil A legal department. Good luck with that.

      They have literally donated money to support killing gay people in Africa. They are fake Christians who believe in nothing but hate.

    Offensive? Seriously? Dick Vitale is more offensive to me as he talks and screams incessantly. If we want to protest something, at least find something worthwhile.

    I was at the game; I am a long-time fan; I am a senior, senior citizen, and I LOVED it. I loved Big Bertha’s replacement; I loved the music; I loved the steam at the end; I loved the intro. Excuse me. I would tell you more things I love, but I have to go get one of my free Chick-Fil-As.

    I DISMISSED her when she sat with the Tarheel Fans that year. Progressive Liberal Trash. That is simply her way of criticizing a company that tries to run itself on Christian values.

      Did you just call another human being
      “trash” under the mantle of a religion
      purported to follow Christ?

    I find it strange she has an issue with Chik-Fil-A but doesn’t rant over the Whitaker Bank Shot promotions?
