OT: NBA Jersey Ads Coming in 2017-18 (UPD: 76'ers sign deal w/ StubHub)

NBA jersey ads open the door for other leagues to follow suit

Will the NHL be the next one to follow?

All star games are fine.

If the NHL goes to Jersey ads, Then they should eliminate the commercial break.

(They should, but they won't)

All-Star games first... but eventually it'll be part of their regular game jerseys.

I'm fine with it. It's a revenue generator - as long as you can make out the team and the player's name/number - who cares?

Who really cares? The team name and such will still be on, it's just a patch that has an advertisement on it.

Soccer has had jerseys and sponsor ships forever, they seem to be doing just fine and fans still buy their gear.

That door has always been open, it's not like there's some law against it that was just repealed.

If the NHL wanted to put ads on their jerseys, they'd've done it by now. They were pioneers in ads on the playing surface, so there's no reason for them to be shy about going for the jerseys too.

That should've happened when ads showed up on the boards. And the ice. And behind the bench. And on the steps in the seating area. And superimposed on the glass. And when every highlight segment/player profile/power play/goalie change became sponsored by whatever car company.

All-Star Games are now more a corporate schmoozefest than they are about showcasing the leagues' talents. Not surprising.

It's just the all star game. And the NBA moved its logo to the back with the latest jersey redesign to sell the spot on the front where it had been. But then they got the new TV deal that is through the roof and owners don't want the salary cap going up any more right now. So they moved away from it.

so because they do it we should do it too?

why? what would fans gain? absolutely nothing. there's no reason to condone it.


It's bad enough I have to pay 100+ for a jersey, but now when I do it I have to be a walking billboard as well?

That's the trade off in soccer.

No commercials, but ads on uni's.

You already are a walking billboard. NHL jerseys have had logos on them for a while now.

Come off it, even the broke-ass CFL doesn't sell jerseys with ads to the fans.

Atleast with the team logo we get to pick which one to support. Now we will have to support other companies also to show our support for our team.

Soccer jerseys still sell with advertisements when they can clearly be sold without it. It all depends on how the league wants to handle it.

I think you have to pay to get the patches put on even

Making the jersey "Authentic"

Yet I can easily buy a soccer jersey that doesn't have a sponsor logo on it. Even more, one can find it with an old time sponsor.

People need to stop being paranoid over the issue.

I don't really give a rats ass what soccer ****ing does or what kind of soccer jersey you can buy. I don't want to see ads on NHL jerseys as inevitable it is.

This.

Europe and the minors are a different ballgame.

I'm sick of ad-pollution. Is that even a thing? It should be.

It is ad pollution. And we slowly get used to it. First itll be one small ad...then a 2nd one...then a 3rd...then a big one with two small ones. It'll slowly creep up on us.

I never got used to it, at best I tolerate it.

Everyone has something to sell, doesn't mean I should have to be subjected to it 24/7.

The thing is, advertisers just don't know their limit. At a certain point ads drown each other out and reduce the effectiveness. They'd put ads in your dreams and thoughts if they could, that may sound a bit tinfoily but I wouldn't put it past them.

You don't know if that's what they will do. If it's just a patch on their jersey like a Nascar ad in the quarter panel, it's very likely they won't include them for jerseys they sell.

So you're mad about things that nobody is advocating, but that somebody might someday do maybe perhaps? That seems like a waste of blood pressure.

At worst it'll mimic major soccer teams, at best it'll just be a small chest patch or a patch on the back

It will happen. Just as ads on boards, the main ad on the ice, then a few. Then scoreboard ads. Then came the this goal brought to you by ad, then "ITS TIME FOR YOUR AT&T POWERPLAY!!!", "Last minute of play in this period brought to you by Subway"

Slowly but surely every single thing becomes a chance for an advertisement.

It's not someday maybe, it's someday it absolutely will. Absolutely will. It's just a matter of who and how much. That's all that's left to figure out.

As long as they aren't all over the place as in some European competitions, I don't mind. But then I'm used to them from European team sports.

Well, soccer games don't have breaks within the halves. It is 45 minutes straight. If you were to have commercial breaks, you would have to stop the game which would be a MAJOR change and that wouldn't go over well. That or doing like they do in F1 on RDS/TSN, go to break, but keep the game on the lower right corner of the screen. But, then again, that wouldn't go over well. If soccer could find a way to have commercial breaks and not alienate a huge portion of its viewership, it would. Nothing to do with jersey sponsors.
