Gillette, Green Bay’s Clay Matthews kick off online debate

BOSTON — Gillette and its brand ambassador and Green Bay Packers Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews have kicked off an online debate forum on Gillette’s Facebook page.

With the NFL playoffs just around the corner, NFL fans are invited to show their passion and knowledge of the game for a chance to win weekly prizes and a grand prize trip to Super Bowl XLVII.

Through a series of various online videos, brand ambassador and Green Bay Packers Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews invites fans to present their best case on some of the NFL’s most debated topics. In addition to having a weekly popular winner, to be determined by number of fan votes, Matthews will ultimately have the final say on whose answer wins the top prize: a trip to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, La.

“Because you don’t have to be a professional commentator to debate your favorite NFL topics, we’re inviting fans to go head-to-head and prove to us who really knows their stuff,” said Matthews.

Sponsored by Procter & Gamble, the contest will run from now through Jan. 13, 2013. NFL fans can join the debate and track their progress up the leaderboard on Gillette’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/gillette) as they voice their opinions on topics that cover everything from teams, players, plays and coaches.

“As the Official Shave of the NFL, Gillette is very excited to open up a forum for fans across the country to engage with one another and discuss the sport they love,” said Elliott Wilke, brand manager, Gillette. “With Super Bowl XLVII tickets on the line, plus a host of other great prizes, the game is on the line for fans as they debate what they think is the best in the NFL.”
