I literally recognise no one in that photo.

I think is it Macinroe looking confused and old on the left

From our perspective McEnroe is on the right. Mark Woodforde and Michael Chang are on the left. Apart from Warren Tredrea and Jay Schulz couldn't tell you who the others are :)

I always find these promotions odd. Really they do more for the "guests" as they get to promote their event to a captive local audience (i.e. the membership base). The international fans of the tennis player etc couldn't give a stuff about which ever sport it is.

Yep. The other two are Mikhail Youzhny and Goran Ivanisevic. It made me look up who's playing this event so the promotion worked :lol:

One is old and leathery, full of hot air, brainless, plenty of Aussies would love to kick it but people outside Australia wouldn't know what the fark it is.

The other is a Sherrin footy.

Fucking hell, anything to be relevant

He was a man of specific quirks. He believed that all meals should be earned through physical effort. He also contended, zealously like a drunk with a political point, that the third dimension would not be possible if it werent for the existence of water.

It was destined for greatness because of the cringe and awkward mixed into an orgy of utter confusion.

Did anyone see the interview on FSN? I actually got diabetes from the awkwardness.

Kompany was pretty chilled I thought, that was just standard Gary Ablett though, he's a nice guy but he's too friendly to the point where he comes across awkward as fuck.

Come off it, this thread is full of examples of A League clubs doing the same thing, even Manchester United did a bit with Federer at Wimbledon last week FFS, this shit happens everywhere.

All of this. Football clubs always use celebrities or people from other sports to promote themselves. Every time the Kangaroos tour England a football club always get a few of the players to the club for a promo opportunity.

The point of this thead isnt to be like herp derp gayFl lollllll!!!!!111111!!!1!1 in fact I enjoy footy especially back in the day.

The point is that these marketing ploys, which undeniably is more of an AFL marketing classic than any other, are ultimately extremely painful and cringeworthy. In fact it would be better if the AFL stick to free tickets.
