The NFL has been blamed for many things this season. The latest controversy involves Papa John’s, a league sponsor, blaming the demonstrations made by players during the national anthem Wednesday for its poor third quarter sales growth. Papa John’s stock was down about 12 percent in trading Wednesday, and CEO John Schnatter said, “NFL leadership has hurt Papa John’s shareholders. This should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago.”

The Washington Post’s Wonkblog team sees Schnatter’s claim as a stretch. Pizza Hut’s CEO added that his chain hasn’t seen “any impact” on the anthem demonstrations affecting business, while the sales at Domino’s rose 8.4 percent during the third quarter. But Schnatter’s comments during the company’s quarterly earnings call has sparked a divisive question: Is Papa John’s even good?

The question has led many on social media to debate whether the product itself is the reason Papa John’s has struggled of late. So we asked 15 Redskins players to name their three favorite pizza chains. As you’d expect, there wasn’t a consensus.

Pizza Hut — 19 (4)
