Colorado Rockies baseball team stands with Nickelodeon

The Rockies’ forthcoming “Nickelodeon Day” will move forward as planned, according to Rockies’ VP of Communications, Jay Alves.

Some Twitter users have asked The Rockies to cancel the event in light of Nickelodeon’s promotion of Jason Biggs’ vomitous Twitter page.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the forthcoming animated television show featuring Biggs, who published these foul tweets (and others) last week:

“We absolutely do not support Jason Biggs’ comments and it’s unfortunate,” Alves said after the above tweets were brought to his attention. “We will continue with our [Nickelodeon] Day, but Jason Biggs is certainly not someone we support.”

This past weekend, Nickelodeon actively encouraged its viewers (most of whom presumably are children) to look at Biggs’ filth-filled Twitter page.

Alves declined to comment on Nickelodeon’s promotion of Biggs’ Twitter page.

“They have been a good partner to us, and Jason Biggs is certainly not part of that partnership,” Alves said.

    Nick and the Rockies made it clear: they don’t want us as customers. ‘Nuff said.

    yet another entity to starve of revenue.

    Well in light of this announcement by the Rockies management, I wonder if they’ll have any discounts on Nickelodeon Night? Will they allow half price tickets for all (in the words of Bigg’s wife) “8th Grade pu**y” that comes to the game?

    Rockies, you’d better get someone to read the words of who are tying your reputation to. If one of your own players was writing this filth to kids you’d get rid of them.

    The people in Colorado should continue to use Tim Tebow as a role model, even thought hes’ gone, and NOT Jason PIGGS!

    Colorado Whosies?

    Fine by me; I’m a Cubs fan. Better reason for us to sweep them next time we face them, even if it’s next year.

  • TonyMontana3

    This is very good news. You gotta stand up to those right wing bullies! Boycotters are the real bullies and they always lose.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Really? What do we lose in exercising our right NOT to patronize a particular product or company? Probably not much… their competitors however, stand to gain a lot.

    • jdkchem

      Like when you turds boycott everyone and anyone who advertises on Rush’s talk show? Moron

      • Alan Howell

        Well jdk. The Rockies did the right thing. Head about to explode? Good, don’t get any on Mom’s carpet.

  • radjahshelduck

    Glad my Braves beat them last night. Now let’s go for the sweep, Atlanta.

    • Enrique Felix

      and how about tonight??? LOL at least we got a run in mondays loss the braves did not get anything….. and i think its really unfair to call out a team for promoting a nick and has no direct connection with biggs…. i do not support biggs either but like i said i do not see the connection you guys are trying to make….

  • Mark James

    Jason Biggs the Rockies Mascot? What a bunch of fools.

  • Don Dogoier

    Good. It saddens me to see a bunch of grown adults act like its the end of the world when someone says a nasty thing online. Get over it. I totally support the Rockies for not backing down. Its going to make a bunch of kids happy getting to meet the Turtles.

    • jdkchem

      So you’ll be chiming in the next time the “grown adults” on the left pitch another fit because somebody said something they don’t like?

      • Don Dogoier

        Yeah I will. It doesnt matter if you are right or left. One side is not better than the other and both are full of whiney, oversensitive people

  • Mickey Byrd

    So the rockies don’t support Jason Biggs but they support the corporation that provides children with links to his vulgar tweets. Yeah, that makes sense. Do you have any kids Alves? Do any of your friends or family have children? Someday you can sit back and smile at the memory of how proud you are today.@rockies

    Wow, they know better and they’re still going forward with this? Shameful.
