Smoke and Mirrors

For the moment than, lets change the subject Mr Sacks. Let's talk about the questionable marketing of your products. Your label clearly states that your product is not suited for children, and yet you deliberately market to children with sponsorship of athletes that are children, sponsoring events where the majority of the attendees are children and producing apparel specifically for children as part of your marketing strategy.

So if your product is not suitable for children why do you keep directly marketing to them? You have dodged this question continuously and your moderators on the quarterly calls refuse to hear these questions and have them answered as well. Time to clear the smoke and put away the mirrors and answer some real questions.
