This was my letter that I posted to the Dominion Post last week.


While at the Air New Zealand Cup final between Canterbury and Wellington on Saturday night, I was advised by gate security that I couldn't enter the stadium with my Subway sandwich wrapped in Subway paper.

The reason was that Subway isn't a cup sponsor and the organisers didn't want to risk upsetting sponsors if I were seen on TV eating from a non-sponsor's wrapping.

This might suggest why there has been a drop in gate-takings for rugby games - they have become just another advertising campaign.

I won't buy tickets to any more rugby games while this remains the rule.

At least I can enjoy watching the game from the comfort of my home, eating my non-sponsored Subway sandwich
