Warriors Sponsorship ThreadSo now that the season is all done bar the Baby Warriors and the inevitable 'where did we go wrong' review, I'll bring up something that's really been bugging the shit out of me with our club.
Some of our sponsorship is really dragging the depths of decency imo. With the Warriors' biggest local fan base famously being the predominantly Maori/PI people of Sth Auckland, it really bugs me that the Warriors promote shit fast food like Wendys using some of the club's biggest PI role models. With the amazing amount of health problems in Maori and PI communities here in NZ caused largely through shit nutrition, I really hate the club whoring out its players like this. The Instant Finance sponsorship isn't much better.
Surely we can whore our players out while still having some sort of social conscience?
[EDIT] Also mightily pissed off how the latest Wendys ad made guys like Koni and Manu look like dumbasses, fumbling around trying to say "Brioche". Hard to say, except it bloody well isn't. Well, maybe for Daryl Halligan.
