Bank of Ireland Sponsorship

Postby Frederico » May 5th, 2012, 5:21 pm

How long does the Bank of Ireland sponsorship have to run? I'm glad Leinster has a sponsor, but I'm not sure it looks good on the outside that a bailed out bank is the main sponsor. Seeing Richie Boucher's mug in the programme for the cardiff match last month spoiled my enjoyment for about 2 minutes as i went off on the rant.

Seeing his head on the tv sitting in one of the nice seats in Bordeaux last weekend wasn't good for the blood pressure either. If Munster can get sponsorship from a brand that isn't as tarnished as a bailed out bank - still staffed at board level by a bunch of insiders who were instrumental in putting it in the position it is now in - then so can Leinster.

And now they have two sponsored teams in the final. Just to annoy you even more.

Get over it! As a customer of BoI, I am under no illusions on their benevolence. But it doesn't do to get too sniffy about who sponsors you. When you operate in a commercial sphere you base your sponsorship decisions on just two criteria; basic legality and price. Legality is a necessary qualifier; price is the ultimate determinant. If you are rich enough (we are not) you can afford to get fussy on the grounds of taste. To borrow a phrase- dissatisfaction with our sponsor is a "first world problem".

As long as they're still paying for sponsorship who cares? It's not like they're being sponsored by KONY...

Bailout aside BOI are not majority owned by the state (unlike the likes of AIB). They need to rebuild their brand/business so need to advertise, they just happen to choose/work in partnership with Leinster Rugby (and Ulster Rugby) to do it.

If it wasnt LR or UR they sponsor it would be someone else.

Ritchie Boucher pays his own way to matches. He is a card carrying member of Clontarf rugby club; you will see him at the home games in his Clontarf jacket. He is easy to spot, so if you have umbrage with him take it up with him directly I'd suggest...

Just as sheepshagger says, they need to advertise ffs.

I also had to laugh at the furore when Aviva moved jobs from Ireland after they named Landsowne.

Absolutely, the furore about "how come they spent all that money on the Aviva" was hilarious.

Wonder would you be so flippant and blasé if it was one of your family who got the chop?

Odd you found it funny.

Absolutely.
Firstly, I said nothing about the job losses, that was awful, but the way the Aviva thing was brought into it and used against them by the media was laughable.

And secondly, because I can separate advertising of a viable business from the ongoing cost of employing thousands of people.

I think I know what you meant first time around. The media spin matters not in this instance. People lost their jobs.

Hope you retain your cold detatchment and hubris if and when the spectre of redundancy & the dole queue should ever visit your door.

As I say, not talking about the job losses, but the response which focused on the Aviva's sponsorship of the Aviva, but you seem to have some attachment to the issue and can't see that.
