Hmm are you sure, Dave? If enough sponsors cut ties to risk LI going bankrupt, they might have to let Paddy go whether they want to or not.

They can't break Paddy's contract. I'm sure they knew when Diageo reneged on a meeting in May that they would try this BS. LI still signed him. No word of any other sponsors pulling out. This hullabaloo will pass.
I certainly hope so!

Dave - yes they can break Paddy’s contract, at a penalised cost. But a cost mind you that might be the lesser of the loss of major sponsorship money to which they are reliant on for sustainability. Watch as each sponsor slowly withdraws now one by one as precedent set once again.

Paddy, for a few words and some granted unpleasant alcohol induced behaviour, is categorically being scapegoated for the feminist and metoo agenda. Maybe it would have been Zebo and Murray if their scandal too place more recently.

Paddy, a young impressionable man who made a mistake is being torn apart and scapegoated by large multinationals and the venom online and trolling directed towards him by these so called equality feminists has gone too far and entirely disproportionate- threats of violence and wanting him dead. Pathetic but that’s social media and this day and age we live in where these sick pr!cks have a voice and push an agenda too far.

It is interesting in some of the articles that permit comments the majority are sympathetic towards Paddy as he’s been penalised enough. I just hope the tide turns at some point. He must be very mentally resilient as every turn he takes he’s reliving it and being over vilified. Where’s the values in Diageo and Cash Grabbers as large corporations hounding a now vulnerable young person who has a right to 2nd chance and redemption noting he was actually fcuking acquitted.

Well Cash Converters were going so it is just Guinness as a drink sponsor so it may not be as much as you think

Aye kinda what I meant in an Brennan about face way. It’ll cost them his full contract, maybe a bit of compo on top, and then the costs of finding another 10. But still probably less than loss of income generation from the sponsors combined. Don’t be surprised if more start “reviewing our brand’s sponsorship to uphold our values and ethics”. Feckers.

So following this debacle I am refusing to support Ulster or Irish rugby, have sex with women (enforced) and now my favourite drink Guinness is off the table and all. If Pringles condemn Paddy I might as well string myself up.

Worcester Warriors charge 4k for an international and 2k for other senior players. I think our sealed bid should be at least 4k. Anything less would be an insult to Paddy.

Wonder if Rory McIllroy would chip in a few coppers to help the cause, anonymously of course.
