Unveiled tonight, we're going to be contacted later on the week for anyone that wants to go down when they are shooting some official videos for the Spurs site.

Out of curiosity, whats the poster advertising? Spurs, Under Armour? Both?




Ken: Purgatory... what's that?

Ray: Purgatory's kind of like the in-betweeny one. You weren't really shit, but you weren't all that great either. Like Tottenham.

They weren't flush with specifics when they called. I'm sure it will be up for a while though. Their PR company will call later in the week regarding filming something for the website

And I daresay this means NBC and hp have also received some assurances from Levy about Bale's whereabouts this coming season.

I hope so... seems like they could've easily gone with a more sure thing star like RvP who isn't going anywhere. So yes, promising!

what I was told from somebody within MLS w/ ties to NBC: No way NBC would dare use Bale unless they were certain he was staying up through at least the upcoming holiday season.

Yeah, no way NBC can dictate that. Fox could through sky, but not NBC. It's a pissant contract.

I wonder how long ago Spurs were aware of the advertising campaign? Due to timing it would've been hard, but HP is basically getting a free billboard in Times Square. You would always hope to include that in any sort of valuation of a contract. 

Also, with the billboard and the Esquire UK cover page, Bale clearly is the new thing in Europe. He certainly seems shy by nature, but we know he must have some business sense or someone with a good head behind him based on him copy writing his trademark goal celebration earlier this Summer. I'd hope that he gets some serious endorsements off of this in the near future as well. Not that he's a Lebron or Messi esque star right now, but I'd reckon he's on the level of someone like Kevin Durant in Europe, no?

which is also exactly why we were right to keep him for one more season. without him, frankly, no-one is talking about spurs.

Sure, but that would be a PR failure. "That guy we painted 40 feet high in Manhattan to advertise the league? Never mind, he's leaving for Spain now." I'm guessing they at least checked into his situation before choosing him as the face of the league.

Please update on the time and which street corner it's actually on, as I'd definitely be interested in stopping by. Also, do you mean they would want us, as fans, in the videos?

Wouldn't read too much into it. I work for Aon and we just got new expensive artwork next to the three elevators, players they chose were Rooney (transfer request submitted), Evra (transfer request will be submitted) and Hernandez (surely no room and has to be sold). Think you're giving these marketing people too much credit.

Maybe with NBC but the club wouldn't feature him so heavily if he was heading out the door. The only high profile summer departure that this wasn't observed with recently is keane which proves the point.

He's probably the leagues's most marketable player, obviously talented and keeps his nose clean.
