Cheetahs prospective sponsor tears up heads of agreement

So we hear a little birdie whistle that the Cheetahs prospective sponsor has pulled the plug before a contract was signed…

So apparently the well known Japanese car brand who’s products include a favorite amongst farmers and the East Rand replacement of the venerable Cortina as well as the quintessential spinster teacher’s car were actually quite interested in getting into bed with the Central Union… giving them a red kotsvlek to wear on their jerseys.

Things were going very well and the sponsor was very happy to draw heads of agreement. Apparently having done so the Exco then stated that as its members were not using the brand it would be a good idea if the whole Exco, consisting of CEO, Board Chair, MD and union Prez should be provided with a means to show the Central Unions’ identification with the said brand of the sponsor.

It also suggested that those who negotiated the said deal should be remunerated with a ten percent value commission for introducing said brand to the superb and highly sought after Central Unions brand…

The heads of agreement that were drawn up were then torn up…

So at least purists should like the Central Unions jersey of this year without the usual advertising splattered all over it…

Now let’s see how quickly the lawyers letter arrives…

    Die lat het die meisiekind gepiets en sy is swanger. Nou gaan hulle plaas toe om haar pa te vertel.

    Op die plaas staan daar net Toyotas rond: lorries, trekkers, bakkies, karre, stropers.

    “Oom hou van Toyotas?” vra die lat.

    “Ja, Boet. Geen probleme. Selfs op die koudste winteroggend – gee hom net ‘n ligte stoot, en hy vat.”

    “Ek dink ook se dogter is ook ‘n Toyota: Ek het haar net ligges gestoot, toe vat sy ook.”
