We have not struggled to get multi million pound corporate deals since the early 90s.

Fine , I give up. Lets have the dirty stinking multi million pound sponsorship of something like Carling or Bet365.

Worthy cause. I lost a dear friend to MND last year. There’s no way back from this disease at the moment and I’m delighted the money is going towards fighting it.

The key word in your post is "charity" and I don't think it should be conflated or cheapened by a football team's jersey.

 

MND Scotland (or indeed in any country) is a fantastic cause for truly awful disease.

 

This is a football club.  Football is our game - not charity.  Budge is so desperate to take us down this route it is pathetic.

 

I want a big stinking multi million pound dirty sponsor.  

 

I don't care about being virtuous.  There is plenty of place for that outside football.

 

This is just classic self fulfillment from Budge in her crusade to make her and the club look 'nice'.

 

 

Normally I just scroll past your comments with a shake of the head, but you're really out-doing yourself here.

Hibs will be going into the next couple of years with Thank You NHS plastered over their tops and having the cheek to charge another £5 for the print on the top .  Ron the Con might get some American sponsor on the top 

With their little bit of success this season who knows if they will get one next season, maybe a get vaccinated message instead, always advisable in Leith at any time. 
I do think that’s why Dempster was ousted.

A multi million pound corporate deal? Our biggest sponsorship deal before Anderson came along was Wonga, just over 100k a year. What planet do you live on?

 

Yip.

I am just sceptical. Why not just give a huge lumps sum to MND and let Hearts get a multi million pound corporate deal?  Do we need a middle man with regards to this?

 

 

Who is going to give Hearts a multi-million pound corporate deal?  Those days are long gone. The way it’s structured MND get a huge lump sum and lots of free PR from the association with Hearts not to mention all the other fund-raising that will happen on their behalf. The

A multi million pound corporate agreement. What world do you live in? Hibs cant get sponsors and neither can our countries game.

 

Thats before you touch on the exposure for the charity

I wouldn't regard hibs not getting sponsors as an impediment.  Bunch of losers who play in a dive.

 

I wouldn't sponsor them.

After Zal’s death, I couldn’t think of a more appropriate sponsor. Great news and well done all involved.

Fxxx the SPFL

We had our friends Jean and Pete up from Coventry three/four years ago and we went to a live beam back in the Gorgie Suite guest speaker was Gary Naismith who went on to tell us about losing his dad to MND our friend Pete had just been diagnosed with MND and to see the tears in his and his wife Jean's eyes listening to Gary Naismith speaking about how his dad suffered towards the end of his illness will be with me forever. Sadly Pete died two years ago we still go down and see Jean in Bedworth and she comes and stays with us. I also know Doddie Weir from my time living in Galashiels it is a horrible disease and wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy hopefully they find a cure for it soon. Fab sponsor as far as I am concerned.

It is a horrific disease. A guy I was friendly with from student days died of it nearly twenty years ago in his early 40s. It was terrible to see him go downhill over a period of a few years before he finally passed. 
 

I remember when we were students and I took him to the Diggers and he asked for a pint of lager. The abuse he got from the barman. 😂

Without getting into the debate about whether it’s good for hearts, good for the charity etc

 

That is a shit logo & will ruin the look of any strip we have next season.

This is the sort of thing that makes us soft. Why can’t we get a drinks or betting company reflecting the hard culture that we used to have?  It will be hair braiding and unicorn breeding on the plaza next… 😎

 

Good news though that benefactors are effectively sponsoring us for nothing in return for publicity for a good cause. 👍

 

We've had Alpacas on the Plaza before :thumbsup:

You're not wrong.

 

I'd actually offer Doddie the chance to play at centre half if we had a game tomorrow! 

 

At a time when I'm really struggling to get on board with the way things are being done at the club, struggling to justify buying a season ticket to watch another season of Robbie mehball played by a bunch of journeymen instead of our Academy kids, the club goes and pulls this out the bag.

 

Another fantastic gesture by the benefactor and the club, and if they get the strip right to display this fantastic logo I'll be front of the line to pony up for one.

Depends, they could just use plain white text on the home shirt, with a plain white logo, maybe something more elaborate on the reverse or shorts. 

 

Doesn't have to be a big boxy "Wonga" style logo.

Not bad

Can you make a home top with the sponsor on it? But the colour of the sponsor is only white lettering (not inside a white rectangular box).

I rapelled down the Forth Bridge for MND Scotland. Very worthy cause and looking forward to our tops carrying their logo. 

 

No concerns about how it'll look. Actually couldn't care less and I'm sure the design folk will know what they're doing.

I just find it all very facebooky.  "Hey look I donated to charity today" please give me likes.

 

Charity should be an anonymous interaction - otherwise you are getting somehting out of it and it should be entirely selfless.

Mate you are having a mare here, it's nothing to do with Budge short selling the space on our jersey but,in fact, getting more.money and positive reflection on the club by utilising her relationship with a tish benefactor.

 

As for the comment above, we managed to keep our "rich benefactors" name out of the public domain for over 5 years. He did not seek publicity or adulation for his purchasing of shirt space (and other funding) but as soon as he tried to assist the wider Scottish game it took 5 minutes to splash his name all over the papers.

It’s a very worthy cause. Used to be so embarrassing when wonga was the sponsor. If we are receiving the money as we would from a general sponsor then no issue with this

We will need to wait and see who’s idea this is, like the Save the Children deal it will be Anderson and his wife pushing it, nothing really to do with Budge all told.
