One thing I noticed on WWOS on Sunday, was watching the Geale - Choc segment and the James Magnussen segment afterwards, was that Geale and Magnussen both wore their sponsors logo on their respective shirts.

Choc rocked up pretty casual with his own Boxa brand jacket.

I personally think that's a pretty cool look given he is not always adorning corporate sponsors on his gear and is not toeing the corporate line.

That's why he never has any backlash like the Alan Jones situation as he doesn't rely on the sponsors as much as many of his peers in the sports and entertainment industry.
People seem to get over excited when somebody famous does something less than squeaky clean because the media blows it up into a big deal when it isn't really.

Mundine does what he wants to and acts on his own principles, yet people villify him for it instead of respecting it.

Too many jealous haters can't deal with the fact he has no boss.

I think it's because the people who usually arc up about racism were confused by who the racism was coming from. The media likes things in black and white.
No it is the lack of corporate sponsorship, people don't like it unless people are grateful and humble for everything they get. Too many people have the mentality of a *****.

Mundine does a ridiculous amount of work for the community.
