Red Bull


#1

Lovely

Never drunk the drink but have always previously enjoyed the RBMA stuff

:confused:

Are we gonna see any F1 or sports team sponsorship fall out from this d you think

Fuck capitalism


#2

Red Bull gives you wing!


#3

Dunno about F1 but the football teams are literally owned and bankrolled by them as opposed to being sponsored so I wouldn’t have thought so.


#4

Ultra right wing*


#5

I like that Red-Bull Leipzig are seen as the devil incarnate by other Bundesliga fans - I can get behind that.

And I have never liked the F1 team.

I think I had a Vodka & RB once, it was ghastly.

This news doesn’t really surprise me in the slightest.


#6

Been rumours that they’ve got their eyes on Franchise FC as well, a marriage made in hell


#7

Never seen anyone drink a Red Bull that I didn’t think was a massive weapon.


#8

They’re welcome to each-other, quite honestly.


#9

Well not me either really apart from it appearing seemingly 100% incompatible with Red Bull’s initiatives within music & specifically within the dance music culture - a real major force. There’s loads of people I know feeling totally conned that they’ve been involved an RBMA events and now this


#10

Ah, that’s quite interesting… I don’t really know anything about their music & dance initiatives. I guess I can look at this from a detached point of view having never been involved with a RB sponsored / initiated event.


#11

I’d be surprised if everyone running F1 wasn’t a fan of fascism TBH. They’re all ultra-rich, exactly the types who thought Mussolini and Hitler were good men prior to the war.


#12

Aye, literally the whole point of F1 is a willy-waving contest between complete bastards


#13

Well even if that were the case doesn’t this seem even beyond that? I mean this is essentially a straight up unreconstructed fascist billionaire owner of major sports, leisure & entertainment brands starting a propaganda organ masquerading as news to purposely spread a fascist doctrine

It’s quite…something


#14

Am I allowed to bring up the Mosley connection or is that just really bad taste? (I actually have no idea about Max’s political leanings.)


#15

great bunch of fucking dickheads


#16

Huh. They’ve been a pretty important source of sponsorship in the climbing world in recent years. Hopefully some of the good folk will take a stand.
