    Oh ho, the beginning of the end of the sponsorship gravy train.

    Now we know shit is hitting the fan.

    Chevrolet were never going to renew. They didn't want the sponsorship in the first place. The bloke who set the whole deal up got fired because he didn't seek approval from the upper management before agreeing to the deal. He also didn't even agree that Chevrolet would be title shirt sponsors. It was seemingly only an agreement between the parties, most probably on the basis of United not wanting to severe the deal and lose out in the long run, that they would become title sponsors.

    This time it will be Kohler, but the American toilet brand, including a picture of Rashy sitting on one.

    Never heard such an amount of garbage.

    Chevrolet are in Business a very long time and to say a deal sanctioning outgoings of millions of dollars Wasnt ratified by the board is absurd.

    You must have just signed up for the Internet a couple of years ago. The news of the guy's sacking broke a few years before you got onto the Interwebz, almost immediately after United signed the Chevy agreement.

    I worked for GM when this happened.

    Ewanick wasn't sacked because the sponsorship deal happened or because it was too much money. He was sacked because he structured it as a series of smaller, separate deals, in order to have to go through fewer levels of approvals. That's a huge compliance no-no.

    Thats why they are looking for a new team. Their contract will be over after this season.

    Surely because the other execs would flat out say no? It was huge at the time.
