Televised sports is all about ads. What's new? Every inch of whitespace is considered an opportunity for sales. People complained and moaned when the ads on the boards appeared, and the slowly grew over time to the number that we have today. Then ads showed up painted on the ice. Then embedded in the score banner. Then on Brad Richards' mouthguard!

What's it like in the arena? It's much worse.

What's new? Just don't be a sucker to advertising.
Are those Subway logos on the actual glass or put in as an effect like After Effects or Final Cut Pro. I can't see fans being thrilled at games seeing that after paying a 60 to 100 dollars for a ticket. They have to be an added effect by the network airing the game.
