Chicago car salesman fired for wearing Packers tie

OAK LAWN, Ill. (AP) — A car salesman in suburban Chicago who was fired for refusing to remove a Green Bay Packers tie says he won't be coming back even though his former boss has relented.

John Stone wore the tie to work at Webb Chevrolet in Oak Lawn Monday, the day after the Packers beat the Chicago Bears to advance to the Super Bowl.

Stone says he wore the tie to honor his late grandmother, who was a big Green Bay fan.

But his boss, Jerry Roberts, says the dealership has done promotions involving the Bears. He was afraid the tie could alienate the team's fans and make it harder to sell cars.

Roberts now says Stone can come back, but Stone says he won't. He's also been offered a job at another dealership.
