New sponsor?

Just reading news from the fans forum.

Apparently we are getting a HUGE sponsor. Burger King wanted a new deal but we had someone much bigger.

Who'd you think?

I am hoping for either Google or Trump Enterprises

I heard about this the other day. Huge for the football club if true! The Burger King deal must have given us that profile in America with other big companies. I can only imagine we’ll profit hugely, will be great to see the logo on the kits too. Well done Mr Wallace!

Received an email from Tifosy (the company that organised the north stand bond) earlier and it's about Amazon moving into the football industry as a growth area for it.

Yeah but don't forget you can't call people out anymore. No-one wants to take any accountability for anything. So they just throw it back at you and make you out to either be an asshole or a nerd for even bringing it up.

I was walking up the street the other day, and two cyclists came down the hill towards me, on the pavement. There was a bike lane literally 1ft away. So I said (in a non-confrontational way, believe it or not) "Guys, the bike lane is right there." Pointing to the very clearly marked bike path. The guy told me to fuck off and get a life.

Just look at how people have behaved about wearing a mask. The tiniest of thing, and people are making out like they're being told to give up their kidneys.

Does the club take human rights into consideration when working with a Sponsor?

For example, let's say it's Amazon. They have horrific human right's standard, terrible working conditions in their own factories and forced labor in their supply chain.

I used them as an example, but it could be almost any major company. if we take money to promote a company with horrendous a human rights record would this be a problem for anyone? How would this be reconciled with our image of promoting equality?

Won't particularly care. This is an area where it is virtually impossible not to be a hypocrite.

I don't get involved with actively promoting all these social media gimmicks because like you I think it's hypocrisy. I'll go along with them so not to be attacked by the ones who think doing that is enough to make them a good person but I don't believe it'll change anything.

Like the vast majority I am clearly not willing to give up my first world privilege to actually make a change to the world. I was born into my fortunate circumstances (in a rich country with everything you could want if you work for it) and I don't have aspirations to change the world.

I give a bit to charity, main one WaterAid as I believe water is the most basic human right (second to air) and can't believe people still don't have access to it. But even that pisses me off as I know about half of what I give just pays for advertising and wages of first world country people.

Amazon seem to have a reasonable human rights policy. So the thought is there just like those who display a rainbow or take a knee (as examples) A gesture, that's all society requires, right?

Agree to an extent but 'gimmicky' social media activity can change behaviours (positively and negatively).

Well worded endorsements of a position, like the statements from Rashford for example on child poverty, are like adverts, pushing for a change.

And businesses wouldn't advertise if it didn't work in terms of changing our behaviour (in their case usually spending behaviour and choices)

Businesses (and governments) do change their behaviour in response to media, social media and protest.

Doesn't mean I'm not a hypocrite who buys trainers made by 10 year old on a dollar a day, but at least I now feel a slither of guilt which may eventually change my behaviour.

Rashford is a good example. He didn't post a picture of a hungry kid on his timeline and call it good. He made a campaign, raised awareness, and gave his time and money. He took meaningful action.

Elsewhere in this thread someone said "this isn't a problem for us to fix, this is for the rich to fix" (or something similar).

What if Boro supporters said "Phil, we're not coming through the gates, we're not buying shirts, and we're boycotting all sponsors until you call out the actions of [insert name of sponsor with shitty human rights]."

Do you think 'the rich' would have a change of heart? Maybe. You even said businesses and leaders make changes based on social media. Now, I do think this reinforces Sev's point about 'gimmicks', they're doing it because it's popular, not because it's right. However, small people can force big changes.

It's a ridiculous idea that only the rich or powerful can change things. That's wholly untrue. In fact, this very forum was the spark for bringing fans together for 2 up from the Conference. OK, different sized fish being fried between a football league and ending human trafficking and slavery, but groups can make a difference. Sadly, most of us won't even try if it means a sacrifice of convenience or status. As long as we don't have to think about the people who touched our electronics before we did, it's easy to dismiss them.

It is true that only the rich and powerful can change things, we just have to make them.

What you can't do is fall into a trap of thinking you're as much to blame for the harms caused by what you consume as the exec who pays for his mansion with the money he saved getting that product made in a harmful way. He would like very much for you to believe that.

I agree with you. That was my whole point with consumers being able to do the best that we can, while rich celebrities and companies taking money to promote this stuff are worse. Really, it's the whole point of this question.
The atrocities committed by Apple are far worse than some kid buying a phone made in crappy factories. However, as I posted elsewhere, in Europe you have a choice between Fairphone or iPhone. Which to buy is on the shoulders of the consumer. Human trafficking and slavery is not on the shoulders of the consumer, but we can make our voices heard and make ethical buying decisions to the best of our ability.

I would probably amend what I say from no difference to a potential difference in the next generation. If the next 10 years we continue with the level of promotion of these things then I would expect the generation growing up now to have a different outlook. So I guess it is therefore worth it in the long run.

But I don't think you'll ever get rid of racism and homophobia completely, certainly not in my lifetime. (Not saying that's a reason to not do these things).

So in conclusion I'd say continue on this path society, it seems to be the right direction.

But yeah, I'm still buying from Amazon if they've got something in there I want.

Your guilt is useless. Convert it into anger at the people who take your money and use it for child labour. Don't believe them when they say they wouldn't do it if you paid twice as much for the shoes, they're lying.

I agree completely, it's not possible to avoid some hypocrisy. We can't know every source or the working conditions of who touched our computers or phones before us.

However, as I've said elsewhere, I do think there's a difference between trying to make ethical decisions as a consumer, and taking money to promote companies that use slavery.

As for Amazon's policy, agreed. What they say seems quite solid. It would be good if their record met their statement.

As for your closing, sadly, I agree again. People are prepared to do anything and everything to bring change, right up to the point of inconvenience.

Wow, that's brutal.

My main thought is more relating to the current shift and focus on equality. Decisions like this show whether we are actually committed to it, or if it's just a popular trend we're jumping on.

If it stops at social media profile pics but there's no actual change where it might get uncomfortable, it's just a show. The smoke and mirrors of politicians doing what is socially acceptable at the time.

This is all very true and I agree.

To go back to the original point though, it's not even about the little people making big sacrifices, we can all do some, and then do some more.

The main issue is supporting companies who profit from genocide and human trafficking.

There's a difference between me not knowing the history of a t-shirt and a sport personality taking millions to promote Nike.

Being a consumer we can take time to make ethical decisions without promoting the companies.

A company taking money to promote these things is nothing less than profiteering from slavery.

In those terms, how could we justify buying shirts with the name of a company on it that profits from these things?

Sad, but true. People get put in jail for tweets, but taking money to fund and promote human trafficking is OK.

We post on social media how we support equality, and yet we're fine with companies who profit from genocide.

Basically, we're all about taking a stand until it actually requires a sacrifice of any kind, whether it's profits or status. If it could be detrimental or causes inconvenience, forget it.

And this is the whole point of my question.

Kneeling, rainbow flags, social media profiles, it's all easy to do. In fact, it's socially unacceptable not to support to these things. But, when there's something of substance, something that might actually result in a sacrifice, something that may make us unpopular, we ignore it.

The sad reality is that by ignoring things when it means sacrifice, it shows that the things that don't require sacrifice are just show.

Take a knee for equality, but don't call out sponsors for shitty human rights and genocide.

The thing that angers me most about this is that if racism is ever socially acceptable again companies will jump right on it, simply because it's socially acceptable. If we're prepared to accept slavery and genocide, we're prepared to accept pretty much anything.

Unless we, as consumers, and people/companies stop taking money and profiting from slavery take a stand it's just pandering to the masses. It's not actually changing anything. It's nothing but politics. It's a marketing plan to bring in sales. And this pisses me off.

Am I really the only one really pissed off at this?

Of course you don't remember it, you weren't among people who were worried about loved ones at the time. I remember it because it was an extremely anxious time and I just got back to a hotel room.

What is telling is that you definitely can't say "No way, that's definitely not the kind of person I am." Because it is exactly the kind of person you are, then and now.

No, I don't eat animals. Yes, I eat animal products, and make every effort to shop ethically.

I also donate to several wildlife and animal charities, including Wolf Conservation, Draft Horse Rescue, Farm Sanctuary, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Arbor Day...

I do not buy products where I am aware of animal or human suffering. I use this site to help inform my decisions: https://thegoodshoppingguide.com/

One other important thing is that I would 100% refuse to take money to promote companies that operate in, or support human trafficking and forced labor. Because, unlike you, that is the kind of person I am. I do care about the world I live in, and the animals and humans I share it with.

But this is exactly my point. It doesn't have to be. We're living in a time of massive social change, at least as it comes to making social media posts and actions with little sacrifice.

When will people demand change that actually means something? How many celebrities, sport personalities, and companies will talk about equality and human rights while taking money from companies that use forced or child labour?

All the social media posts in the world mean nothing if we take money from companies that use slaves, and this goes for any company or individual.

i think the big company hinted at would have seen what can be had from sponsoring a club like Stevenage

Burger King done wonders out of our sponsorship with alot of twitter hits and other positives from social media so i imagine a few companies might follow suit
