I agree. That's why I'm not passing legislation disallowing them to do it.

The reason why I dislike it is because it's not aesthetically nor intellectually pleasing. The logos do a poor job at blending in with the uniforms and I very much dislike how a third party corporation insists on advertising in such a way.

I don't see why you think my disdain for such a thing is irrational. It's not like I say it's irrational for you to not like a certain painting or a musical artist.

What is irrational, however, is comparing religion to sports in the United States. Essentially, if you're saying that that comparison is ok, then if I was to object Microsoft from putting its logo on Stonehenge, apparently I am now a follower of the religion "ancient monuments". My, or most Americans, love of sports has no resemblances of popular religions. You can interpret whatever you want from American sports to symbolize a concept from religion, but honestly I would rather you just not jerk off.


Ohhhh, this is a B&M session on the ickyness of advertisements on soccer uniforms!

I mean, sure, it's not aesthetically/intellectually pleasing to you, because "appeal to emotions." There's nothing wrong with that, nor does it really lead anywhere, but that's not all that you said...


What's with this "sell out" mentality?

"-the fact that soccer teams think it's cool to sell out by having company logos on their uniforms."

So, if the logos weren't on uniforms, they wouldn't be sell-outs? Or does receiving funds from a corporation make one a sell-out? Where do you draw the line?

Yes, if the logos weren't on the uniforms, then it'd be ok. Once third party advertisements are on clothing, I get annoyed.

Why are uniforms no good for logos, but fields are? When watching the game, you can't see the front of anyone's shirt anyway.

Are you really complaining about advertising on uniforms?! It doesn't even impact the game...

Compared to the stupid amounts of ad breaks during handegg matches that actually impact the viewing of the game... You sir are crazy.

Also I believe Australian Rugby League is the worst when it comes to uniform advertising:

Oh, I remember someone referred to it as handegg a few days ago. I thought it was you.

Also, commercials aren't as prevalent as you think.

Team sports are retarded. In fact the only sport worth watching is Tennis.

It really grinds my gears that people don't know this.

it's hard to appreciate tennis on TV unless you know what's going on. for a lot of people, it's just two guys hitting a ball back and forth.
