The worst one of all is we have no shirt deal to bring in an extra 1million or so to boost our income next season should we go down.

I wonder if owners can sponsor their own teams at that level IE championship league.

Go down, sign 20 year silly cheap deal for Venky's on the shirt. Come back up and say silly cheap deal, so no financial benefit, we have contract etc etc and get their way most likely, provided they carry some butter.

If a rule was made that teams who fail to qualify for european football could have an extra sponsor on the back of their shirts (or sleeves) like in the chumpionship....maybe it might help even up the income imbalance of the top clubs & the rest?

....just a thought like :unsure:
Resistance or collaborator? The choice is yours....

Fairly certain premier league rules prevent more than one sponsor on a shirt.

I think the rules in the Football League, where we might well be playing next season, are different - I think they're allowed a smaller sponsorship either on the back of the shirt or on the shorts.

Pune Warriors shirt in the IPL seems rather natty, load of sponsors on that, maybe we could share?

Does anyone care, other than Mrs D who'd probably like to go direct to mnaufacture in India and cut out the middle man.

Well I care for one.

The last few kits have been good and this seasons is the best in years.

I think there's still at least 5 or so years left on the deal
Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.

since most people on here though have declared they won't buy another shirt until Kean and preferably Venkys have gone though, it's less relevant to most who makes the shirts. I think this is honestly the first year in about 20 that not one of our family has had a Rovers shirt or other Rovers merchandise for Christmas or birthday, and I think there are probably many other households the saame, although I stand to be corrected.

Absolutely correct.

Rovers' merchandise was also a good option for business stuff (ties etc) and friends' children etc etc.

On average, probably spent a few hundred quid per season in years gone by.

Since Mrs De'ath and The Chuckle Bros ave taken over the only item I have bought is a pair of furry dice.

I did have personalised Rovers car number plates but gave them away.

I'll probably buy a shirt even if I don't get a season ticket.

Absolutely, I think our current shirt is the best for years but will not spend a penny whilst these parasites are around. Even my little boy who is 6 does not want anything that will help the "bad people".

Bugger off Venky's and give us our club back!

KEAN & VENKYS OUT OF MY CLUB - One down, One to go!

Few people have the vision to make a dream come true. The beauty of Jack Walker's was we got an invite too......... Classic![br]

Loved the sponsorless shirt this year but mine's been stuck in the wardrobe for months on end.

There used to be a certain pride to wearing a Rovers shirt dan sath. Not anymore.

At least this seasons sponsor less shirt has a timeless quality about it
