    Question for the home crowd..about local corporate support..

    You have some big corporations in the Cincinnati area..Kroger and P&G to name a couple...How active are the big companies when it comes to professional sports up there? I found a small story on how P&G's CEO has bought a "micro" percentage of the Reds....


    Down here in the Charlotte NC area, corporations take a BIG interest in the professional sports. Wachovia Bank...Duke Power..and others..have a big part of the pro sports scene. If it wasn't for the big dogs, this area wouldn't have the football Panthers..the basketball Bobcats..the hockey Hurricanes..they own big shares..they let you know they own big shares..

    And let's not even go into NASCAR and corporate sponsorship..

    The oldest franchise in baseball...and lately, one of the most hurt by the dollar.

    Can you imagine what could have been if a corporate giant like Procter & Gamble had thrown money in the direction of the Reds?

    How much support do the locals get from corporations when it comes to the Reds and Bengals?

    The Reds just created a new position at the head of the corporate sales department about a month ago, so my guess is that someone named Castellini perceived that there was more gold to be mined in that vein.

    It's no doubt that the big dollar boys have always had a say in big dollar sports here and everywhere. Banana man had plenty of bucks, he just treated the team like a half gallon of low quality ice cream. Certainly the big Cincinnati companies are putting some money on the table, I think it's just been mismanaged.

    The stadium has sold out all of its advertising space each year, so the support is there. Some of it from big guys like Kroger and AK Steel, some from smaller locals like Jeff Wyler and JTM. Then, of course, there's the luxury boxes and premium seats, which many, many companies buy.
    Makes all the routine posts.
