Should we be boycotting Sponsors of Western Sydney Giants?
I only say this as I finally changed my superannuation. My last super place sponsored the GWSGiants and I made it my mission to get out of there.
5 years later, well they obviously changed sponsors.
Why do I say this?
Because they are an Astroturfed team. WSW belong in Western Sydney. You saw Wanderers supporters everywhere when they came, you saw local Soccer clubs everywhere. Western Sydney wanted the Wanderers.
AFL wanted another Sydney team. So they brought playing grounds and pinched players and dumped their dumb sport here. It wasn’t because the local fans wanted them, they were AstroTurfed. If they wern’t so strategic they would have been removed faster then the Western Force.
Now I don’t mind AFL having one team in Sydney but the Giants are a joke. The AFL have always tried to force themselves on our patch and it annoys me.
More then this, the corporates look at the League teams and go “well if we sponsor Parramatta we might piss off Canterbury supporters… so lets be safe and sponsor GWS”. Even half their sponsors are government entities.
I think true League fans should pull their business from the lot of these companies. Go back to Melbourne! GWM you are not welcome here.
