IKEA Shelves Sponsorship Plans


Recommended Posts

As swift as the St George Dragons made public the decision to pursue Israel Falou, IKEA have shelved talks of a sponsorship agreement with the Dragons which shares a home with one of IKEA’s major stores.

An IKEA statement was issued today citing difference in culture between the two organisations. “We are a proud organisation that strives to deliver fantastic household items for all Australians and IKEA have decided to end discussions of a corporate partnership with St George Dragons as the club has demonstrated no obvious respect or need for trophy cabinets in the foreseeable future.”

I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it?

Although I agree with you it's the unconfessed Nazis that worry me!

Could have been true, though, given the impression created on here by so many antipodean Strop impersonators .  😀😀

Yep, St George are a few pieces missing from being a solid team, Ikea furniture often has a few missing pieces!

Huh?

YOU went out of your way to bring in Trump just to suit your prejudice and which had zero connection to Rugby League.

 

Huh?

You went out of your way not to read the preceeding posts it was a response to!

That's what happens on a forum.

Keep safe

It's like that black & white film about two blokes and a woman John, "But it was not allowed." Only in french.

Jules et Jim - Golden Age Cinema and Bar

And did you pick up all the possible political intrusions or just mine John?

IKEA would be an excellent TGG sponsor, and getting all moral about the product or the origins involved is probably something RL can little afford right at this moment in history.

Or are morals and history banned from libraries, forums and general discussion too?

The IKEA reference from earlier posts is strange. Their stuff is mainly fine, very popular, easy to assemble, and has brought modern furniture etc to many. Economy of scale, too, keeps prices reasonable. I guess some people joke about it for a cheap laugh. I certainly used to do that.. Before I actually ever shopped there. 

Perhaps there's a Puritan streak in some people who see drinking, betting, indeed anything popular and enjoyable as something the huddled masses of RL supporters should be denied.
