AIG is quickly becoming the posterchild for the cause of the economic crisis. It is doesn't do anyone any good to see their logo emblazened on all United merchandise.

Should United immediately dump the sponsor as a show of goodwill to the millions who have, or soon will be, significantly harmed by the current financial disaster?

It might be a logistical nightmare, but perhaps it is the right thing to do.

Why? Poor guys are dead broke. I just couldn't leave a mate out in the cold without any money to his name.

Why just recently a friend called me up & said his parents kicked him out. He needed a place to stay & I happily obliged. You stick by your friends. :)

Tbh, I'm not sure whether we should or not.

And I'm not really bothered in all honesty. If we keep them, then fine. But if we decide not to, our stock couldn't be higher as we're English and European Champions.

It might not be as easy as just dropping them though, because they had something to do with the Glazer takeover. (Though I don't know anything about it :p)

commercialism is one of the biggest problems in the game, where it begins and ends, ethics of the companies involved etc.....its just a nightmare to get right and honestly AIG are no better or worse than anyone else out there. so lets keep the money and evaluate the situation at the end of the contract

This company is almost 80% owned by the US tax payers now ,so I guess I have a real lifetime investment in it now! Ill continue to wear the shirt,I told people its not the advertisment , its about the club!! most people really didnt even know what AIG was, until the fat cats blew it.

and they give us a **** load of money!
Good point.

The sponsorship gives us a massive amount of money, a British record, so as long as they can afford to keep paying us the agreed amount, should we really be concerned?

Because United and AIG are too tight, aren't they :rolleyes:

Some of the ***** posted on here is unbelieveable.
