Topics I've Started

RL sponsorship influencing your purchase.

08 June 2015 - 11:44 AM

I ran out of tea bags a couple of weeks back and decided that when I ordered my shopping I'd buy Typhoo as they sponsor Saints - first time I've bought the brand. I also always buy Gillette products on the rare occasions I shave. It got me thinking about sponsorship in general ...... Anyone else buy products just because they're involved in RL? (sky being the obvious one!!)

I do think we have a lot more to offer sponsors and am always a bit disappointed we don't get bigger names involved. My company are involved in RWC and the sheer amount of support is infuriating for an RL fan!

Not so Premier Sports

In the Four Nations last year Premier, not for the first time, missed the last 5 minutes of the NZ v Samoa match off the Sky+ recording. I rang to cancel but they offered me £3.99 per month for six months so I stayed.

Today not only did they miss the middle 20 mins of the Samoa match but again cut off last few minutes. Rang to cancel and they again offered me the deal but I didn't take them up this time.

Premier are amateur and although it's great they show loads of games they need to stop appearing like it's done out if the back of someone's shed!! Can it be that hard to build in some extra time at the end of a show?!
