Greatest Sponsorship Deal of All Time!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20100506/od_nm/us_australian_rules

MELBOURNE (Reuters) – An under-16 Australian Rules football team has come under fire for entering a sponsorship deal with a local Hooters franchise, with critics saying the move could give adolescent boys the wrong message.

The Broadbeach Cats team in Australia's Gold Coast were cheered on by two skimpily-dressed staff from the Mermaid Beach franchise of the American restaurant chain during their home game against local side Labrador on the weekend.

"The message these boys are getting -- and bear in mind we're talking 15 and 16-year-old boys -- is that ... as a young footballer you have an entitlement to large-breasted women in skimpy outfits bouncing around at your games," women's advocate Melinda Tankard Reist said on an Australian morning television show.

Restaurant owner Morney Schledusch described the criticism as "ridiculous."

"Our waitresses represent the all-American cheerleader," he told local media. "And no, they don't all have big boobs.

"We are all about sport. We had a great opportunity here to show Australia what we are really about."

The staff members would not be back to cheer on more matches and their presence had not affected the Broadbeach players, who romped to a big win over Labrador, the team's coach Neil Boston said.

"They are here to play football -- that's all," he said.

Australia has cheerleaders for professional sports.. They just don't turn into human pyramids.

Also AFL (the sport in the article) sucks.

Boobs are over rated.

I like women who can crack walnuts between their thighs.

Gotta love dating track stars.

--The whole concept of government granted and government regulated 'permits' and the accompanying government mandate for government approved firearms 'training' prior to being blessed by government with the privilege to carry arms in a government approved and regulated manner, flies directly in the face of the fundamental right to keep and bear arms.

Yeah,I'm a leg man as well.

Now,what exactly is the "wrong message" we are sending these "young" boys?...Excelling in the sports field gains the attention of women?...
Yeah,becuase having a few Hooters girls at their game is the only way they would ever get that idea.

I was gonna say something, but screw it. Everyone is bound to be stupidly wrong about something, and this is yours.


“We may observe that the government in a civilized country is much more expensive than in a barbarous one; and when we say that one government is more expensive than another, it is the same as if we said that that one country is farther advanced in improvement than another. To say that the government is expensive and the people not oppressed is to say that the people are rich.”

Lol.

Really...arguing about women taking advantage of tits?

You know who argues against tits?

Fat people (more women), women with no boobs, and gay people (probably not as likely, more towards lesbians I suppose, but they are covered in fat & no breasts)

Shake 'em!

That was a very sexist thing to say Karon.

I approve that post.

This is the same country that had a politician (must find details again) who recently said that rape is the fault of women who wear skimpy clothes. I'm gathering that many of them are morons.

Personally I think that politician is a idiot, but I do hate it when girls who wear skimpy clothes complain about guys staring at them.
