wicked sister has terminated its sponsor with the bulldogs.
Never a fan of it anyway
Never heard of em
Hopefully we get a bigger and better sponsor to replace with.
Damn they are tasty
The sponsorship department are going to have a busy off season!
Meh, a pretty average dessert anyway. I bought some because they supported the club but that stops now. These companies don’t realise that people like me will stop supporting them once they walk away from my club. Bing Lee were about to sponsor the Dogs on 2004 and walked away from the table after Coffs Harbour. I’ve spent tens of thousands of $$ on appliances since then but I have not stepped foot in a Bing Lee store since. Their loss.
THE fallout from Canterbury’s disastrous Mad Monday celebrations has continued with a second sponsor dropping the NRL club.
Shorts sponsor Wicked Sister Desserts on Wednesday said it had terminated its agreement reportedly worth $350,000 over the incident and the Bulldogs’ handling of it.
In a significant financial blow, it comes four weeks after major sponsor Jaycar ended its 10-year association with the club and pulled its back-of-shirt sponsorship worth $500,000.
“Today we informed the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs that Wicked Sister Desserts will be terminating its sponsorship of the club effective immediately,” the company said in a statement.
“Wicked Sister Desserts is a family-owned business and we share the same family values as our customers. What has occurred is completely unacceptable.
“We do not in any way condone the behaviour and nor do we support the response by the leadership of the club in the way they have handled this matter.
“We accept that there will be some who criticise our company for taking this decision but our company and brand stand for certain values and behaviours, and we expect the same levels of decency and respect from those we align ourselves with.”
The Bulldogs were slugged with a $250,000 fine by the NRL, however that amount was halved after the club issued their response to the governing body’s breach notice.
Adam Elliott and Asipeli Fine were fined $25,000 by the club ($10,000 suspended) and charged with wilful exposure after being photographed naked at the Harbour View Hotel in Sydney’s The Rocks during post-season celebrations.
The pair will appear in court on October 24.
Marcelo Montoya and Zac Woolford were also fined $10,000 ($5,000 suspended).
The NRL came down hard on the club because several senior officials including coach Dean Pay and football manager Gareth Holmes were present at the function.
And why is this news now?
Can they flog this dead horse anymore??
Good I hated having them as a sponsor on our shorts.
Does a company really cancel sponsorship until they come out with a long winded do-gooder statement trying to score brownie points....
I would hate to see whats sponsors would do in light of bashing your misses, drink driving, dick pics over the phone etc etc
Never eating that again
Even better when we win the GF next year and stick it up these cunts
My bet is yes.
While it isn't ideal to lose sponsors, I think that we have enough of a fanbase to attract other sponsors. It just comes down to getting some results next yearto keep our brand appealing.
"Wicked Sister Desserts is a family-owned business and we share the same family values as our customers. What has occurred is completely unacceptable."
One, so every single one of your customer is family orientated, are they?
Two, every single one of your customer is an altarboy, are they? Squeaky clean records.
Three, it's cute that whoever this company is waited until after the dust has settled to open its tiny mouth to speak.
Four, if you're not good enough because of your extremely high morals and ethics for my club then I guess satanic, terrorist trouble makers like me aren't good enough to shop at your store(s). Wherever they are.
Good fuck off
Maybe wicked sister can sponsor Greg Inglis instead
Just another company keeping a good face in the public eye. Fact of the matter is they couldn't afford us and used this incident as a great excuse to pull out.
Same goes for Jaycar.
See ya both later!
