Do dingoes really take babies?!Do celebrity endorsements sell more product ?
Is there research into whether this type of advertising influences the viewer ?
Is it a cynical move to Have Hurrell who has weight problems front a fast food add?
Is Obesity the leading health issue in New Zealand ?
Are the Poly population the most vulnerable group in terms of diet related issues.
It doesn't matter what your / my opinion is, weigh up the hard questions.
I cant find anything about any instant finance sponsorship on either warriors or instant finance websites. Do they actually sponsor the warriors?
I know Stacey Jones did an add for them but that was him on his own without the warriors. He's free to make his own choices in what he associates his name with, I wouldn't want my name associated with such a company.
As for the burgers I've got no issue with that sponsorship but fuck the ads are terrible. I just don't get how they can pretend it's hard to say, nobody is that fucking stupid.
Care to point me in the direction of anything showing warriors/instant finance connection, I thought there was some link between them but not mentioned on either companies website seems strange to me.
You say Jones has been advertising for instant finance for years, I thought it was something he took up after he finished playing, a deal between Jones and Instant Finance not a warriors sponsorship thing. Don't get me wrong I think the guys a right fuck wit for doing it, and the company is a fucking disgrace the way the operate.
Still don't really give a toss about the hamburgers, I just think the ads are shit, somewhat embarrassing for all involved, so much so you have to laugh at it.
The burgers are approved by peak athletes, PIs, whites and aboriginals.
They're not saying eat the shit all the time any more than they're saying drink 24 lion reds, drive your suzuki to the casino, leave the kids in the car while you spend the weeks budget on the pokies just because they sponsor them.
Yeah some people will go overboard on the burgers, beers or gambling but thats really not the warriors fault.
As for the stupid people in ads, it seems to be a growing trend to portray men as complete morons in ads. Put a women in the stupid role and the feminist army will completely lose their shit.
TAB is the sponsor I find most offensive. The way sport is whored out as a vehicle for the TAB in Aus is terrible and now we see NZ following suit.
SkyCity is a wealthy big name sponsor for sure but maybe on the level of Winfield in other ways.Good to see the club is managing to keep the major sponsors. I remember in the 90s a lot of the teams jerseys were pretty blank so it's good to see clubs getting funding.
I see comments on other forums how league doesn't get the blue chip sponsors. Well we have two pretty big names in Vodafone and SkyCity in terms of profile here in NZ.

Winfield didn't make me want to smoke, SkyCity doesn't make me want to gamble,
Winfield didn't make me want to smoke, SkyCity doesn't make me want to gamble, I think it's called being responsible for my own choices. Far too many people using piss weak excuses for the decisions they make. Why don't the same people that blame the sponsors of teams and events use the same argument that being a Warriors fan should make us all want to spend 6 days a week in a gym and training our arses off, if we are all only capable of monkey see monkey do.
