Ad patches aren’t that bad. It’s not going to be full blown soccer. They’re ok in the NBA. CFL has had adds for years and it looks fine. They retail jerseys aren’t going to be sold with ads 

No ads are bad, they are bad in every example you stated and stick out like sore thumbs, and you should feel bad for suggesting such a travesty.

Right, the joke relies on taking the Crying Game scene to absurdity and that the idea that then-notable actress Sean Young could possibly be a man is also absurd. This one's a dead end, sorry!


the joke is that accidentally kissing a man is so disgusting that Ace would rather suck on a used toilet plunger to clean his tongue afterwards. And it presumes that of course the audiences agrees with him. 
 

High-larious.

Why do you think the retail jerseys wouldn’t ever have ads?

I'm hoping the Falcons go black-on-white today at home. Only three home games left, including today, and they still have not worn that combo which is the best in their set. Throwbacks next week. Also, I am curious if they will ever trot out the red pants, which looked awful in the reveal

I see CFL and NBA fans wearing jerseys with ads in them all the time

That's interesting, because no NBA teams sell jerseys with ads on them. Those could be knock-offs though-

They sell retail versions with ads at official team stores at the arenas.

Soccer jerseys really just make my blood boil. I want to watch Seattle FC or Real Madrid, not Zulilly or Fly Emirates. Plus, if i'm ever in a position where I have to resort to watching a sport as boring as soccer, the least I could get is a nice uniform.

Team stores sell them with ads if people really want them

You can add adds to CFL jerseys. They are not sold with them

I really wish that soccer jerseys could have evolved to have larger chest logos like hockey, rather than badges, leading to all that open space which is now used for advertising...

 

That also makes me think of those few wacky football jerseys that had the logos on the front, and front numbers. Was that the CFL?

That was NFL Europe/WLAF.

While the CFL jerseys would look better without the ads, I don't even really notice them anymore (same with the NBA honestly). There are some more egregious jersey fouls in the CFL than the ads.

I have never seen a CFL jersey sold with ad patches on them. The only jerseys with ads sold to the public are gameworns.

 

The NBA only sells the jerseys with ad patches on them at the arena team stores.

Well if you don't notice those gigantic CFL jersey ads I don't know what to say haha. I guess some people just won't put up a fight until the ad is the size of a soccer jersey sponsor.

"I'm used to seeing them" does not equal "I don't notice them".

You literally said "I don't even really notice them anymore".

Either way you're defending gigantic ad patches lol

We can become inured to all manner of bad ideas.  Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be fighting to prevent their spread.
