Sponsor's on Jerseys

Hey there Oil faithful!!!

with all of this CBA talk and lockouts and owners wanting more money and players not wanting to give up any money, a solution came to me Sponsor's on jerseys just like in Soccer or racing even golf.

I know to all of the hockey traditionalists this is taboo and an outrage!!!! but think of it this way teams that are worth literally a billion dollars do this A.C. Milan, or Real Madrid, Barcellona or Manchester United or Manchester City!! they all do it so why can't we as hockey fans accept this a form of income for our teams!!.

Owners would be happy because this would be somethign that could go straight to them and not have to be shared with the players, and the players could ask for a little bit more when it come to the CBA and the real money is dished out.

I for one would not be upset if our Oilers jerseys had Rexall or Coca Cola on it, its the team you cheer for not what the Jersey says!

one last thing look at car racing Ferrari's F1 team gets over a 100 million dollars from Marlboro a year in sponsorship and the kicker Marlboro can only have there name on the car in races in south america, asia and the middle east because tobacco sponsorship is against the law in europe and north america!!!

i am just wondering what you think of this option as a way to generate revenue for the team.

I would think that it would only add fuel to the fire in terms of NHL being a joke in the US. Would make it look even more bush league in the eyes of many who aren't really into hockey.

Had it already been done in any of the other major team sports in NA I think people would be more open to it.

If you think bringing in more revenues is enough to keep the owners or the players from fighting with each other than you're giving both sides way, way more credit than they deserve.

Indeed. Throwing more money into the pot just makes both sides greedier. Human nature at it's finest.

Hockey payrolls are peanuts compared to what the Premiership and other top football leagues pay out in salary.

We don't need jersey advertising here.

If I can add the important, and critical point in this is that soccer fans get the benefit of watching a complete 45 min half without ANY commercials. So yes theres advertising on jerseys and around the pitch. Its the only adverts the viewing public see's during a match.

So if the NHL wants to forego advertizing in televised matches then I'm all for a little advertising on the jerseys.

But guess what, they wouldn't do that.

Isn't NBA already planning on doing it?

Personally I'd be fine with it as long as its just a little patch, if it gets to the point of euro hockey or soccer, id pass. It looks ugly on euro hockey, and i dont like how in soccer, its bigger than the logo. I'd be even more supportive if the ads colors were modified to fit team colors, so it fits with the jersey better.

We both know that would never happen. That's right up there with saying that if they lower the salary cap then maybe ticket prices will come down.

I'm not really against the idea of advertisements on jerseys. The NHL already sells ad space on the equipment the players use including the jerseys. As long as its done tastefully and not like European hockey I'd be ok with it.

I don't care to see more advertisements of things I'll never purchase. There's enough of it on TV commercials and on the boards during the game.

Leave the jerseys alone.

I'm a big soccer fan, and own several Man U and Barca jerseys - I like them. I would prefer the one big sponsor as opposed to those Swiss (I think) hockey league monstrosities that are littered with sponsors all over the jersey and even on the helmets.

The hockey traditionalist in me screams "no way", but I really wouldn't be surprised to see all 4 major North American sports have fairly prominent ads/sponsors on their shirts in the coming years.

They already have this to a small extent in the Reebok Edge jerseys. Individual players have sponsors who they represent by wearing their gear exclusively as well but I would really hate to see this happen. It's ugly, tacky and would make hockey seem less like the other 3 major north american pro sports.

Since when do hockey teams care what the fans think. If there's significant money to be made, it's just a matter of time till teams go there.

Care is a relative term. They care about their bottom line. If they thought the fans (aka the customers) would tolerate ads on the jerseys I'm sure we would have had them by now.

I don't know what's worse - the idea of advertising on jerseys, or the fact that there are always soccer fans in these threads that think it's not so bad.

Will jerseys be given out for free. What benefit do I get pimping out Coke or whatever company? I wear a jersey because of my loyalty to the team or if I like a specific player.

Also what happens when advertising contracts change. After 3 years coke is no longer the jersey sponsor its Costco.

Do you get to bring your jersey in and get a new Costco logo on or are you still advertising freely for coke when they do not even support your team anymore.

Then theres the whole they look nasty argument

That's a good point, 2 posts above. If they advertise on jerseys, that may well be the death of jersey sales. No one is going to wear those monstrosities around and advertise for random companies.

Soccer jerseys seem to sell fine. If they did go the jersey ad route, I'm sure they would do it in a way that's different from euro hockey where the logos and ads are pretty much just patches that are stuck/sewn on. Something more integrated. Would still be super commercialized and tacky but people would probably still buy it.
