Ads on Uniforms

Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, wants to allow advertising logos on team uniforms as a way of developing another revenue stream.

Maybe NBA fans would go for it, maybe not, but I'm sure major league baseball fans would hate it.  I asked several Cardinals fans about it this afternoon, and they were nearly unanimous in rejecting the idea -- even if the owners tried the line, "but it would keep ticket prices down." Riiiiight.

Cuban should read this Just Plain Harris column I wrote last year when Bud Selig wanted to sell out and put Spider-Man logos on the bases and on-deck circles.

Advertising has its place, of course -- on this website and on my KMOX show!
