ESPN sponsor complaint pages

Discussion in 'ESPN's 04-05 war against tOSU and Tressel' started by jwinslow, Nov 12, 2004.

    Come up with a generic complaint that is about ESPN and does not address a specific sponsor. Then copy and paste it into each of the forms. Not signing it would be a good idea, so that they cannot compare the sources of these complaints.

    College Gameday sponsored by Home Depot & Weber

    Other college football ESPN sponsors:

    Cooper Tire
    ValvolineHalftime Report
    Verizon

    Cingular Wireless is on there too (for player of teh week), but I couldn't find a good contact form.

    Happy complaining!

    Just a suggestion, if you can find the number of Alumnus OSU has and share that number with these sponsors I think that might have some effect. Especially since this is about football it's about sullying the name of tOSU.

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!

    I hit Cooper, Valvoline, and Home Depot. The Verizon wanted a you to have one of their #'s which I don't have, and Weber... well I couldn't hink of anything good for them (but I will).

    Wrote to all sponsors but ADT.

    Copied ESPN Senior VP on my e-mails to their sponsors. Let'm know that myself and many of the alum were contacting the sponsors and eliminating our services and relationships with espn. Wrote a little explanation. Asked that it was forward to the correct area.


    I'm still pissed. Not enough. I want to hit somebody

    My response back from Cooper Tire


    Didn't relize that ESPN is THE place sports fans go and is the autority.
    Guess I don't buy those Cooper tires.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    Yeah, particularly those fans who will shell out a few bucks for a new set of tires. But we're not concerned with our partner's ethics, or the lack therof- as long as we make money on those tires.

    Well, they've certainly accomplished their objective of differentiating their brand name from the other 90 tire brand names. They've firmly established themselves as THE ONLY tire manufacturing company that is implictly bankrolling the defamation of one of my favorite institutions. I will keep that in mind in my future planning.

    Home Depot reply. Looks like it's a canned response to everyone.
