How can it be a bad thing? It brings MONEY to the sport. For any sport to take the next steps forward it needs backing.
Would the NFL be as successful and have the talent pool it has if there wasn’t money in it? Or mma… Or…
Do you take any sponsor, even in they have unethical business practices? I mean they are ALWAYS being sued for false claims and such.
Haha clearly MMA execpts any since a good number of fighters have “Condom Depot” on their shorts lol.
Anyway I’m just bringing this up for debate purposes, not to disagree with you.[/quote]
Yes… I mean Nascar got big sponsorship from cigarettes and alcohol. Almost any large corporation has unethical business practices to someones definition of it.
If you don’t personally feel like you would want to support and be supported by a company than you have the right to do so. But in a sport like powerlifting with very very little sponsorship and support for the athletes you of course would have a lot less say in this.
But with one sponsorship hopefully it brings more and other “better” companies may take notice. It can only help the sport…
