(Some Blogger)   NBA cancels idea of putting advertising on jerseys, mostly because big-market teams don't want to share Fortune 500 ad revenue with small-market teams like Sacramento Chico's-Bail-Bonds Kings and Oklahoma City Sonic Thunder   (uni-watch.com) divider line 39

Oklahoma City Sonic Thunder would be awesome for obvious reasons.

This would be a great photoshop thread. Or did I miss it?

Meh... the Kings probably won't be in Sacramento much longer, anyway. Big market or small market, the Maloofs can and will screw it up

/and it'd probably be Padilla Bail Bonds

I would totally cheer for any team sporting a Chico's Bail Bonds.

I'm so glad this failed.

If the big 4 have to invoke lesser leagues to justify it, there's a big clue that it's a bad idea.

If you invoke European Soccer, then by all means, cut all commercials from games and make them last about 90 minutes.

otherwise, DON'T YOU DARE TOUCH OUR UNI's!

Works for little league teams.

Let's cancel the NBA altogether.

Zig-zag, blunt-wraps, MA Audio, Concept Neeper, Newport and Kool, Black and Mild, Any Kind Checks Cashed, Popeye's, Sean John, Lugz, Planned Parenthood, Nike, DUB Magazine, South Pole, KFC, Cadillac, Adidas, whatever payday loan place Montel Williams is pimping this week, Kool-Aid, Desert Eagle, Boost Mobile, Chek Cola, Huawei, Winn-Dixie, McDonalds, Axe body spray, Binaca, Haier appliances, Kia, Invicta watches, cash 4 gold, Dish TV, and Right Guard aerosol spray deodorant are probably extremely upset they won't get ad space.

It really is a dog fight dog world in advertising now-a-days.

You know, ever since I started watching more soccer... I surprised myself at how much I truly don't give a shiat about advertising on jerseys.

But then I suppose I might think differently if Dunkin Donuts started showing up on Red Sox jerseys, because I'm used to it not being there.

Ultimately though I think I'd get over it, and most people would too.

That is a very good point also.

The Kings will be playing in the Sleep Train Arena this year.

Profits yes, ratings no. About half as many people watch the finals now as they did in the height of the Jordan dynasty.

That's because people like dynasties and longer series. Not to mention the average American has 1000s more entertainment options than most people had in even the late '90s.

Will the NBA ever escape from the cloud that Jordan has cast on this league. People still have a boner for the guy.

For those who don't know, Oklahoma City is the home of Sonic drive-ins; Sonic's headquarters is within sight of the Thunder's arena.

When the team was moving to OKC, there were rumors that Sonic offered a lot of money to change the team's name from The Supersonics to The Sonics.

Does anyone else find it odd that America, the land of selling you prescription drugs with TV ads, is the only country with pro sports that DOESN'T have advertising on any of the big 4 players' jerseys? You'd think we'd have been the first, but it's apparently some hallowed ground.

I think there will be ads on jerseys before I die.

Approves of the name "The Sonics".

Just because everything can be sold doesn't mean it SHOULD be sold.

My view is the more and more these teams take public funds, the more those teams belong to the public. Additionally almost every inch of the stadiums/arenas is sold to advertising. Every single moment on tv is sold to an ad. Stadium names are bought and sold, hell they're now sponsoring the frigging score boxes and player stat boxes. At what point do these leagues/teams/owners making money hand over fist finally say "ok that's enough"

We root for TEAMS not a corporate entity.

And again, if someone wants to argue the soccer league format then I will vehemently argue "ok, I'll concede to that if you cut all commercials and make the game non stop. Clock never stops"

The amount of money lost from commercial revenue would easily trump ad revenue gained from jerseys which aren't scene nationally in most cases.

Unis and ads do not belong together.

Personally I can't wait to see the Target Timberwolves presented by Land 'O Lakes face off with the Harley-Davidson Bucks brought to you by Miller Brewing Company.

I'm totally OK with advertising on jerseys as long as it brings the cost of attending down (tickets, concessions, etc.) and not lining the pockets of players and owners.

I'm also ok with getting a BJ from Michele Obama, but neither is going to happen.
