    Bailed Out Bank of America Sponsors Super Bowl Fun Fest

    ABC News: Bailed Out Bank of America Sponsors Super Bowl Fun Fest


    The event known as the NFL Experience was 850,000 square feet of sports games and interactive entertainment attractions for football fans and was blanketed in Bank of America logos and marketing calls to sign up for football-themed banking products.



    You gotta be freaking kidding me. If anyone thinks any of these crooks deserve this so called "bailout" money. Please step foward.

    First, I don't agree with the bailout. These companies shouldn't get a dime.

    Second, this is obviously a marketing strategy by BofA. If they are not spending their money on marketing their products/services in the attempt to create new business thus improving their profits then what are they supposed to use the money on?

    They spent money marketing their services to potential customers. It's not like they were buying a private jet, giving their executives inflated bonuses or taking them on ridiculously expensive retreats.

    Marketing is a legitimate expense, it's not the same as corporate jets.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    How is that anything but marketing?

    It's not like they took the senior staff on an extended tour of the Caribbean (which is not something they do anyway, by the way).
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    It's pretty standard stuff.

    Reverend, do you think that the public should have a say in how private companies are run if they are subsidized by the government?

    Do you think they did this for the amusement of NFL fans and not because a company, big or small can't possibly hope to get any new customers other then through marketing, which is exactly what this is? What is bigger then the Superbowl during the first quarter of any year?

    Yes, to the extent that they should be allowed to stipulate how the money of mine they are giving is spent.

    but I do not believe in coporate welfare either.
