Are the Olympics about sport or money
« on: Jul 12, 2012, 20:01 »
We have all read about the food outlets at the Olympics not been able to sell chips because of McDonalds deal. But did you know that that football stadia such as the Sports Direct Arena and The Emirates can not be referred  to as such when hosting Olympic Football because their companies have not paid for the right to advertise

I won't be watching any of it

Well good luck with trying not to watch it. Of course an event like this has to revolve around money, that's the way it is. At least it's in Britain in our time zone so not too many late nights. Its upon us , cant do nothing about it so I'm going to enjoy it.

I see that on the London2012 site for the football it still lists the venue as St James park
