Comment in the weekend press and Monday TV news has it that SL is trying to
stop club sponsors names from the front and back of team jerseys. DB, the
Warriors major sponsor (rumoured $15m over 4 years) has told the Warriors and
SL to stick it, they will sue if they do not feature pre***ly on the
front and back as per this season. It has been suggested that SL is looking
at handing out a bunch more cash to get the teams out of any sponsorship deals
Maybe it has more to do with DB, and the fact that it has been suggested for
some time that Lion Breweries(a NZ company that owns a good chunk of the
Australian Beer market) has been keen on taking over now that Winfield has
been shown the door.
Anybody on that side of the ditch heard anything on this one, or who the main
sponsor next year will be?
