    All Blacks: Sponsorship

    The All Blacks are, much as it may pain me to say it, the most successful rugby AND sporting team in history. Don't get me wrong, I'm never going to wear a black jersey, despite being a Kiwi with an accent but I digress...

    I do however take umbrage with the fact that they are sponsored by a failed insurance company - AIG. And I don't mean failed as in had an "oops", I mean failed as in had to be bailed out by the federal government!

    The two couldn't be more polar opposites! I don't know, maybe it's just me but I feel that there's a huge conflict of interest in the values of these two entities, particularly as NZ players have to wear their logo?

    Does it bother anyone else - or is it just me?

    AMI continues, I know it's be sold on for a token, but it was baled by you and I, over Christchurch, the name AMI should have been kicked to touch forever!

    Please read the book : Double happiness, how bullshit works by Joe Bennett.
    The author describe very well the marketing mechanisms between the sports world and the banks/ insurances...etc

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    How long did it take to get a replay Rushy?
    I mean, the guy with the stone and chisel must have been pretty sharp but it would have taken a while for a try, no try call!

    OK, we're in the professional era now and sponsorship is part of the deal but I'm sure that there would have been a queue of other sponsors wanting to sign up the AB's. Have people forgotten just how fucked AIG were? I sure did.
