The Wolves used to have a logo on their jersey every season. It's been a few years though. That said, I don't support it beyond the manufacturers logo. As long as sponsors are nothing more than background drivel, they're fine. Anything to disrupt the purity of the action though, I won't support.

How would you define that?

I think it would be a gigantic Toyota logo through which a pitcher has to throw the first pitch to each batter.

"Purity." Give me a break.

Doubt it.

This is what the ice the Ft Wayne Komets play on looks like these days. Sorry, I'm not having it. I'm not going to pay to have corporate logos burned into my memory banks for two and half hours straight.

I always thought that the on deck circle and the dugout were perfect for ads. History so far has proved me half correct.

But the ads on the backstop, in between innings and pitching changes, on the outfield wall, read by announcers for instant replays, pitching changes, doubles, on the score bug, and all the others are tolerable during Sox games?

I would say the difference here is that the ads on the backstop and outfield walls in baseball would be the equivalent of the ads on the boards around a typical hockey rink. The ads on the hockey ice would be the equivalent of painting ads all over the outfield grass.

That hockey rink pic is crazy. I'm not sure how anyone could keep sane trying to follow the puck.

Didn't the Hawks have a Giordano's logo on their practice jerseys for a couple of years? I thought it looked tacky, but at least it wasn't worn in a real game.

One place i can't believe hasn't been used for advertising is the back of the mound. Many teams put their team logo on there, but I would imagine it would be pretty lucrative to have an advertisers logo on TV every pitch of the game. Maybe the league won't allow it.

Are Wendy's and Subway aware the bought ad space on the same rink?

They don't really compete for the same customers, do they? Wendy's is fighting against McDonald's and Burger King, whereas Subway is in an eternal market fight with just eating out of a dumpster.

Are those people that walk around with Monster energy drink hats, t-shirts and stickers on their car being paid to advertise? Because who in their right mind would walk around in that crap without being paid?

If someone wants me to walk around wearing Pepsi hats, t-shirts and Pepsi stickers on my car, I will gladly do it for the small amount $400 a month.

And from here out my handle is Pepsisox1

Pepsi, Pepsi, Pepsi
