Sports & Entertainment Spotlight: cashback company Ibotta reinvents jersey sponsorship deal with New Orleans Pelicans | Dinar Supra

Welcome back to Spotlight and in its best season, fall (nine out of ten dentists agree). The sun is setting early and the mercury in our thermometers is dropping. Ironically, Robert Sarver, the majority owner of the Phoenix Suns franchises in the NBA and Phoenix Mercury, seems to be in the midst of a sunset and a fall of his own. In fact, one week after he was hit with a $10 million fine and a one-year ban on NBA and WNBA activities after an independent investigation uncovered a systematic pattern of sexual harassment and racially charged language at Suns and Mercury’s front office, Sarver appears to have succumbed to public pressure. To do what many thought should have been forced on him by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver: sell franchises. Whether the action was prompted by some sort of interference by fellow owners, Sarver took hold of his conscience, or perhaps even the realization that sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace… not great for business, the decision to sell the difference is shocking, but it is not. surprisingly. Even more puzzling, however, is how and why this history – not unique in the sports world – continues to repeat itself. As has been said, pride comes before the fall, just as wordplay comes before (and during) “spotlight”:

  • Ibotta Cashback Discount is renewing its jersey sponsorship deal with the New Orleans Pelicans. Too bad that Abbott and Costello aren’t about to do the Ibuta jersey routine.
  • Kanye “Ye” West terminated YEEZY Gap’s partnership agreement with Gap, Inc. Which was meant to be a long-term fruitful partnership for the husband. Sounds like a perfect opening for the Gap x Pete Davidson deal.
  • Originally a star of the 2000s, Christina Aguilera has kept pace with the times by signing up for NFT and branding geared towards the metaverse. The applications will likely stand up to the scrutiny of the US Patent and Trademark Office, given that they are beautiful in every respect, and words cannot thwart them.
