    MLB Reverses Decision on Spiderman2 Ads

    Spidey Thrown Out On Bases
    Following heavy criticism, Major League Baseball has reversed its field and will not put a Spider-Man logo on the bases during games next month. However, the logo will still appear on the on-deck circle.

    YES! I'm glad they made the right decision, and I hope they don't try stuff like this in the future.

    Good news.

    "The plan began to crumble Wednesday night when the New York Yankees said they would only allow the ads on bases during batting practice -- and only for one game that weekend."

    Yet another reason why I love the Yankees.

    I smell something fishy. This whole thing might have just been a ploy.

    The movie got enough advertisement now just from this incident.

    What's in it for MLB? Why would they agree to be part of the marketing ploy?

    Bud must have wanted some extra bucks for those small market teams.

    No kidding. They got their $3 Million worth of exposure and then some from this...They weren't paying for the bases. Unless they were trying to market it to Jeter or Giambi, no one else would have seen it.

    They paid to be associated with MLB, its broadcasts and the discussion of traditionalism that was sure to ensue after this agreement.
    "We understand that John Henry must be embarrassed, frustrated and disappointed by his failure in this transaction. Unlike the Yankees, he chose not to go the extra distance for his fans in Boston. It is understandable, but wrong that he would try to deflect the accountability for his mistakes on to others and to a system for which he voted in favor. It is time to get on with life and forget the sour grapes."

    Executives at Columbia Pictures could have already made their money back in publicity. Sources told ESPN.com that the deal was worth approximately $2.5 million and Eric Wright of sponsorship evaluation firm Joyce Julius & Associates told ESPN.com that Spider-Man II received between $1.8 million and $2.4 million in equivalent advertising time in the first 24 hours after the announcement.

    I was thinking the same thing then I saw that sign last night.

    Not necessary at this point. I'm glad it worked out the right way. Not that I think this will last forever, eventually it's going to happen but the later the better.
