I don't care, with the caveat that it's a small patch (2"x2") on either uniform sleeve and no more. But I'm sure I'm in the minority.
You're right. I doubt they go all nascar or international hockey on MLB uniforms in our lifetime. If Subway wants a patch on the Reds right hand sleeve... cool. I might eat an extra $5 footlong per year.
I think it sucks.
The Nippon Ham Fighters disagree with you.
I hope the Reds get a cool advertiser like Chico's Bail Bonds.
I dispise the NBA and think the entire league is joke so I couldn't care less what they do. But...I really don't want to see it happen to MLB.
I don't like it. Could you imagine an advertisement on a Yankee uniform? or any classic MLB uniform for that matter. Keep the advertisements on the outfield walls and scoreboards.
Eh, doesn't really matter to me. It's a different world and revenue streams are changing. As long as it's not too obtrusive.
So long as it doesn't reach this point:

They already have ads on the uniforms. There's a Majestic logo on the left sleeve of the shirt. The hats have a logo on the back of the cap. I see Nike on a lot of the collars of the undershirts. Of course the helmets, shoes, gloves (both fielding and batting) and bats have logos on them.
If its small and on the sleeve or something, then eh whatever. But if it gets out of hand and starts saying something like American insurance's reds or something. That'd piss me off. I don't want teams selling their name out on the jerseys. The nba maybe NEEDS this, as most teams are in the red. MLB teams spend what they want. So if youre in the red, that's on you!
