Can someone explain how these sponsorships work? I get why a company would sponsor a nationally competitive GM or maybe a local guy who kicks ass, but why do I see so many A, B, and C class guys with jerseys that have logos plastered all over them?
It doesn't bother me, I'm just curious what is going on. Are most of these people actually sponsored, in that they get benefits from these companies, or do a lot of them just get jerseys made with their favorite companies logos on them just to look legit?
The reason behind my questions is that I was squadded with a guy who had big name logos all over his jersey (CZ, BBI, etc.) but he seemed to just be a middle of the road C class dude. I thought it'd be dickish to be like, "hey dude, you're not that good, why so many sponsorships?" So I figured I'd seek wisdom from Doodie.
I imagine this has been discussed repeatedly, but I would rather hear from Doodies rather than searching google.
