|Quick, find the logo of the actual team! No, not the Dutch girl|
The shirt so full of advertising messages, they can't actually fit in the player's name. And really, they are all just numbers to me, and a changing number at that. But I am repeating myself.
As you know futebol does not have television time outs. No $500K per 30 seconds spots. I am sorry for football...except that they have figured out a solution. The football shirt. Some so filled with sponsors names I have no idea if there is actually a team emblem on there or not. The most successful at this is Corinthians, beating out the team (Flamengo) with the most fans of any team in Brazil. They gain R$74 million (US$34 million) per year in sponsorship of their shirts. How do they do it? Let's look:
|Ummm, these sponsors are a joke but hard to explain to non-Brazilians...|
Are there any other sports that do this? Car racing jumpsuits, right? Anything else? Strange stuff. In My Eyes.
PS> I know football teams worldwide do this...I am not picking on Brazil....much...
