I wish to hell I’d never said "Winning isn’t everything it’s the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you’ve won.

What a shock.   I can’t wait until the jerseys look like  Europe.

Ads on jerseys was inevitable, but still effin’ gross.

Call me naive, but I don't see the NHL ever going full-European style hockey jerseys in regards to ads. The NBA has started to do ads on their jerseys. Correct me if I'm wrong, lots of soccer/football leagues have ads on their jerseys. Neither of them have gone overboard with full head-to-toe ad placements. So I don't get why jerseys from a Swiss hockey league are typically seen as the standard for this. When the game is actually going on I really don't think you even notice this kind of stuff. Especially when the players are surrounded by ads on the ice/boards/stands anyway. So a big ol' meh here, at least from me.

I actually think from an advertising point of view one patch is more effective.

In our early days we only had one main sponsor on the shirt, Harp Lager, and one on the shoulder patches


Now we have this


And I couldn't tell you who 90% of the sponsors even are

That feels like another reason why we won't see NHL teams get flooded with ads on their jerseys. A team like Belfast or teams in the Swiss league probably take on a boatload of ads from local companies and I'd assume the team doesn't get paid a ton for each one but they add up to a decent profit. But here most NHL teams will partner with one or two big brands (like the Leafs with Scotia) and those companies will pay NHL teams more not only to have their ads on the jersey but also for exclusivity rights to block other companies from getting placements.

Side note, Harp is one of my favourite beers.
