Boycott Diadora

edited January 2023 in General Chat
As you may or may not be aware, Diadora have been using footage of the Bradford City fire in 1985 in recent television commercials. This was done without permission of the club or Yorkshire Television, who own the copyright and do not share the footage.

To add insult to injury, Diadora are one of the club's main sponsors.

Story.

I hope it never happens to the advertsing executive who thought THAT would be a good idea.

May the 56 Bradford and Lincoln fans who died rest in peace.
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    A stupid and irresponsible thing for Diadora to do...

    Guess who Leeds' new kit provider is?

    It's *thinks* Diadora, isn't it?

    Maybe they think it would endear them to the L666s scummers who still think it oh-so-funny to mention the fire,

    Their stuff is shit anyway.

    Can't believe that they would be so stupid though. It's bad enough that this footage (and the other images in the ad) are being used to sell sportsware anway. Where the fuck is the link?

    Used to like some of their stuff back in my old school casual days but it has gone downhill, along with their morals it would seem.
