Re: Sonny Bill and Sponsors??
I was replying to a post that had used the word and other derogaory comment.
Bit unfair to single me out.
However sticka and stones
As to a carefully contrived contract SBW and NZRFU ... according to reports Auckland and BNZ weren't aware until SBW entered the fray with his patched up collar.
I trust the SBW and NZRFU have contrived to exclude SBW from the AIG jersey ... they are a very 'financial company' to xref SBW statement
.......in a statement read on Radio Newstalk ZB, New Zealand Rugby said Williams had "lodged a conscientious objection with New Zealand Rugby in his contract to finance companies,
banks, alcohol companies, tobacco companies and gambling companie
AIG by definition and record must be on that list?
... a quick read of this should suffice to suppport this ..http://www.rugby.com.au/news/2017/04/08 ... bill-blues
It just seems to me a very open conscientious objection that is difficult to avoid in the sporting world and sponsors and should also include Boxing as well as rugby/
However, as stated I wish him well.
I have no malice regarding NZ Rugby just an opinion regarding futures where I find the recent Super Rugby reorganisation interesting and the advent of a more international Club nature just another step in the direction already forecast.
Not to say that I'm necessarily supportive of that either ... just that it has been on the cards and is now closer.
I apologise for my attitude .. have tried ...promise!... just a bit too late now and the spots are engrained
