And I'm well aware we're already bombarded with ads everywhere. I just think putting it on player's uniforms cheapens the product of the sport.
I suppose we'll have to agree to disagree. To me, advertising is so pervasive that to take umbrage at jersey placement doesn't compute. Seems like it's a much bigger issue than that.

By the way, it is not an arbitrary point at all, I have been objecting to this type of 'hidden entertainment tax' for many, many years.
This I can understand. You seem to have a specific political point here (and I can't say it's one I necessarily disagree with).
