And don"t think their sponsors let them forget it.

Well for me, it`s either think of the children OR think of your sponsor...not both.

The chance Club Brugge (the t-shirt is from that team) will score is so minimal, they better remove that sign forever.

They neutered his nipples. Poor athlete. I cringe at the thought of my nipples being cut off.

Ha! It`d be great if he lifted his shirt like that after scoring a goal, only to reveal the sponsor`s name tattooed on his chest? Then he could be like, "Now what, sign?!? ...now what?"

And he could also be on an i-a-b list for worst tattoos ever...

> so, wut happens if he doesn`t listen to the sign??

Silly ferret, you can`t listen to a sign, they don`t make any noise. And he`s a professional athlete, so he can`t read, that`s why its in pictures for them. If they still go ahead and do it, they get docked a million dollars from their wage that week; do it 40 or 50 times in a season and you start to really miss that extra beer money you lost.

"supersmash...you gotta problem with utd?"

I got nothing wrong with "utd" just a problem with U.S. bailout money being used to sponsor them.

I like that AIG is all over Manchester United`s jerseys. That`s cool that they`re using the bailout money to sponsor a sports team is another country. Any sports sponsorship is bad enough, but a team in a different country is pretty lame. And it`s a soccer team at that.

Just kidding. Soccer`s cool. I`m warming up to it. Except for when they dribble and pass for like 45 minutes and then finally take a shot at a giant goal and miss by like 20 feet. That`s kinda not so cool.

they banned lifting up or taking off your shirt because some players had other sponsors or messages printed on their undershirts.
funny thing is that Dexia have nearly gone bust due to the recession, i guess the team wasn`t following the rules :P

Ah, this is because they banned taking your shirt off in celebration a few years ago. The clubs put up signs all over the place to remind players not to overly celebrate. This is just one that was made by a sponsor and so is a bit corprate.

"I will neeeeever understand professional sports."

You see the ads all over this page? You know how those ads are what allow this website to operate? And the only way that works is because you offer something that people want to see.

Pro sports is kind of the same thing. Except they make so much money they need to get revenue from every possible source.

"YYYEEEEEAAAHHHH-wha?"

Watching the Penguins parade as I type this. A few of the players are trying to act like fools and have fun with the crowd (crowdsurfing, etc) and the team PR guys seem to have a hard time letting them just high five people.

Bitches are on a leash.
