Bodog was there.

69 posts in this topic

So Bodog's choice of "locally focused" advertising on the Team 1040 is to recount how the Canucks were considered a strong contender for the Cup in 2011, then blew their shot and left the city heartbroken. Bodog was there!

I would be surprised if "Bodog was there" in Boston for the Red Sox collapse where they blew their division lead to the Cardinals in the final stretch of the season and missed the playoffs.

Screw you Bodog. Don't pollute my attempt to follow Vancouver sports by insulting me.

I don't see a problem with it.

Contender at the beginning of the season? True, many people predicted that.

"Blew their shot." True, the Canucks unfortunately lost.

Left the city heartbroken? Yeah, that's true too.

It's their slogan and obviously it has had success or else they wouldn't be using it.

"Campoli tries to clear it, Alex Burrows shoots and SCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORES!"

"....3 years....19 games.....It's a wonderful day for an exorcism." <-----yes, I know that's not the full quote

Bodog was there.

'Nuff said. Bodog, hire me, your advertising execs suck!

Bodog Berlin:

In 1939, Hitler invaded Poland and conquered the country in less than two weeks, using it as a site to conduct human experimentation and mass murder.

Bodog was there.

- factually accurate statements? Check.

- use of a slogan that is already in existence? Check.

Was Bodog also there when we disgracefully started yet another riot after losing?

Was bodog also there when the screws didn't lay a single charge down until months later?

Is bodog going to be there at my dry staff christmas party? Yup, ya heard me. Dry. And there's going to be kids there. At company-owned, non-licenced facility. Just because my company is a bunch of cheap, scrooge-like selfish fracks. If you want to see a one-man riot, be there Nov. 28. Yup, that's. MONDAY, November 28th. LOL!

Bodog is some bar or casino that sponsors TSN, and SNET during their brodcasts

I swear it's negative promotion in order to create controversy to get attention.

I guess it's better to be known and reviled than for no one to give a crap about you at all.

That commercial irritates me every time I hear it. And if I was a gambling degenerate (like seemingly every host on the Team 1040) then I would intentionally avoid Bodog just because they piss me off so much. Reminding me of a crushing painful defeat that is still fresh in my mind cannot possibly be considered good marketing. I also remember the one about the, "Up start Calgary Flames" from a few years ago, way to be totally off the mark.
