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.

Maybe. But it strikes me as a pretty dumb way to promote yourself to Vancouver sports fans.

Maybe it's just me, and I get sick of the 1,000 different ways Team 1040 tries to talk me into gambling, but that's my two cents.

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.

Yea I know, just terrible marketing. I believe a couple years back they also ran ads on how when Calgary upset the Canucks in the 1st round and went to the cup final, Bodog was there. Now that's what I call knowing your market.:rolleyes:

Its being factually accurate doesn't necessarily make it effective advertising.

The fact that it is their slogan doesn't necessarily make it effective either, and I wasn't focused on the slogan anyway.

Other examples of factually accurate potential Bodog commercials that meet your criteria for effective advertising:

Bodog Vancouver:
In 1994, Nathan Lafayette hit the crossbar and the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup.
The city of Vancouver rioted and embarrassed itself internationally.
Bodog was there.
- factually accurate statements? Check.
- use of a slogan that is already in existence? Check.

Bodog Vancouver:
In 2004, Todd Bertuzzi took issue with Colorado's Steve Moore, slamming his face into the ice and ending his career, while fracturing the bones of his neck.
He was suspended for the rest of the season and the Canucks were quickly ousted from the playoffs.
Bodog was there.
- factually accurate statements? Check.
- use of a slogan that is already in existence? Check.

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!

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.

No kidding. 1040 is a moral cesspool.

Over the years since they got the Canucks' broadcast rights I've heard ads for everything from porn stores to Mexican real estate to known online scams.

That Pollock guy seems like a scumbag and I have very serious doubts that Biothera regrows hair.

What else... Divorce lawyers. A ball hair lasering service.

Perhaps it is better.

Not in my case, though. If I ever do decide to gamble on sports (and 1040 has made it less likely that I ever will) I will almost certainly avoid Bodog and select another bookie service for my gambling needs, thanks to their annoying ads.

Actually Bodog is an on line gambling service based out of NY state that has it's servers on that native reserve (where the big standoff was and all the duty free cigarettes are smuggled thru) in Quebec, near the American border. It's on that reserve because it's actually illegal to have online banking in the US so it uses that stupid technicality......way to go, Canada!! :huh:

OP, they love message posters like you because you extend the reach of their ads just by bringing up. As they say there's no such thing as bad press. Expect more crappy ads. Learn to use the mute button or change the channel.
