I personally don't think it was a marketing scheme. I don't believe the Robertson's needed it, nor do I believe they would have signed up for it.

Many will say I am naive, to that, I say that I believe there are still people who will stand behind their core values. I know people who do.

I agree with Jim,

I might think that if the show wasn't doing so good. Then I could see them doing a Marketing scheme. But the show seem to be doing very well.

I'm not saying it was the idea of the duck dynasty folks, I am saying that it was the idea of the A&E folks.

Hey look what phil said, it's kinda controversial and the gays are already upset about it, let's fire him and all his backers will make a big deal and the gays will be happy, then we can just hire phil back and say we made a boo boo

score $$$$$

I don't think the Robertson's were necessarily involved in the planning of it.

A&E wanted the Robertson's to quit their praying at the dinner scenes and not talk so much about their faith and how pro gun they were. The Robertson's told them they would quit the show if they were not allowed to express their beliefs . This happened prior to their last contract . A&E caved in then also so I figured they would again. The show is just too popular to let another network snatch them up.

A&E wouldn't have to ask them to stop this or that. They could easily just cut those scenes and edit in hundreds of other scenes they wanted if they wanted the praying reduced or gun talk reduced.
Reality TV isn't reality. Phil Robertson may not have said any of the stuff attributed to him in the motivational posters. His PR people could have released that on his behalf. Companies and businesses have social media experts who craft their messages on facebook and twitter.

And the Robertson's would have walked. When they were trying to renew the contract these issues were brought up and Phil basically told them they would just walk away from the show, the family backed him and A&E caved as they should have. They don't need the show they were millionaires before the show. Has the show gained them revenue ? Sure it has but they could walk away and get their show on some other network easily but at this point they don't need it , their following is quite big enough.

You can say that A&E could just edit out the prayer and gun items but Phil has shown he will walk away from a good deal by walking away from an NFL career because he wanted to hunt & fish more & to make a go at his duck calls. So, if they had done that, I believe the Robertson's would have walked. And........ A&E must have believed it because they didn't edit it out. I think it's these issues that have created such a strong following around the nation. Phil represents a newer version of what so many admired in John Wayne movies, a take no shit, tell 'em to fukc off, fuck yeah Merica attitude.

It's pretty clear A&E needs the Robertsons more than the Robertsons need A&E.

I find it interesting how much everyone knows about what was said, what the robertsons would do, wanted to do, how they want things, why Phil didn't pursue an nfl career and everything else. It's like some of you guys actually join them for sunday dinner

Have you ever heard of Facebook or Twitter? You can follow the Robertson's on them there hand held devices, it's amazin'. While I don't personally my kids do and they show me what the Robertson's post on there as we watch the show together as family time.

I'll take a sweet potatoe, saute'ed brussel sprouts with bacon 3 cups please, 6 saute'ed shrimp (light olive oil, a bit of tony's creole, and some lemon pepper), and a 12 oz sirloin grilled seasoned with Lawry's salt and some peppercorn.

A spinach mix side salad with cucumbers, mild pepper rings, a couple peices of grilled chicken, sunflower seeds, a boiled egg, tossed in Ranch Dressing (like one half serving size or so).

That should work
