    2005-2006 Endorsement Deals

    Matt, please sticky this...and you can un-sticky last years...

    Gents, I am re-posting the Endorsement deals in a new thread. These were the deals teams committed to last season (the season that never was). Given many teams are likely to commit to the same endorsement deals, I'm asking you to post within this thread your confirmation of the below or any requested adjustments. I will simply adjust any requested changes to your endorsement commitments and post a "Confirmed" beside your team once it has been done.

    For teams not included below, feel free to post your team's commitments for this season and your team will be added to the list below. As always, endorsement deals are optional.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Edmonton $1,750,000 $5,500,000 (Adjusted)
    Chicago $3,750,000 $3,500,000 (Adjusted)
    Minnesota $4,000,000 $10,000,000* (Adjusted)
    Boston $5,500,000 $13,500,000 (Confirmed)
    Tampa Bay $3,500,000 $ 9,000,000 (Adjusted)
    Carolina $1,000,000 $ 2,500,000 (Confirmed)
    Anaheim $1,500,000 $ 3,000,000 (Adjusted)
    NY Islanders $3,500,000 $ 8,500,000 (Confirmed)
    Philadelphia $4,500,000 $10,000,000 (Confirmed)
    New Jersey $4,000,000 $10,000,000 (Confirmed)
    Nashville $1,000,000 $ 4,000,000* (Confirmed)
    Calgary $1,750,000 $4,000,000* (Adjusted)

    * Team’s maximum includes maximum Mountain Dew Award ($4,000,000), but endorsement could be achieved with a payout as low as $1,000,000.
    Note: Maximum does not include bonus amounts, but rather the standard payout for achieving the milestone. Bonus achievements would be above and beyond this total.

    These will be added to HFNHL team’s revenue in order to help provide extra income for rising salaries. There are four different types of endorsement deals teams can choose from. No team is obligated to enter into an endorsement deal, it is simply a way for each team to try and earn extra revenue.

    1. Broadcast Deals: will allow each team the opportunity to make extra money by signing a T.V. deal with a major network. Extra revenue from this source will depend upon the quality of their respective club and the fans desire to watch them play.
    2. Merchandise Deals: are run under a very simple principle. The better the team does, the more fans it attracts. The more fans a team attracts, the more merchandise a team will be able to sell.
    3. Team Endorsements: are available to all clubs willing to gamble on the team’s upcoming season. They can be thought of as “Corporate Sponsorships†in which a company aligns itself with a team for exposure to the hockey public. Certain companies want to be associated with certain types of teams and some have different expectations (and revenues) than others.
    4. Individual Endorsements: are essentially players endorsing specific products. The only difference between this and real life is the team gets the money not the player. Teams are rewarded for their player’s individual accomplishments. Individual performances only apply to players and prospects that are with your team for the entire season.

    Each team has the opportunity to enter into ONE Broadcast Deal, ONE Merchandise Deal, and any combination of TWO Team Endorsements or Individual Endorsements.

    Commitment and Risk
    To enter into an agreement you must make a commitment and pay the “Cost†fee before the start of the season. This money comes out of your team’s budget immediately. You may cancel your endorsement deal anytime BEFORE your 42nd regular season game is played, however you will only receive 50% of the “Cost†fee back. If you cancel an endorsement deal at any time during the season you CAN NOT sign the SAME deal again the following season. Please note any deals you participated in and cancelled last season, as there will be a penalty assessed if you attempt to sign a deal your team is not eligible for.

    So these deals are not without risks, as six teams last year actually lost money on their deals and it could happen again if GM’s don’t plan properly in anticipation of their team’s and players performances. The system is also designed so that the higher the risk, the higher the revenue.

    Submissions & Payout
    Each General Manager will be required to submit their Endorsement commitments before the regular season begins. At the end of the season, each General Manager who qualifies for any of their Endorsement Deals must submit a detailed account of which obligations were met, and the statistical proof of the achievement.

    Sign Columbus up for TSN, Koho, Home Depot and Tim Horton's.

    Suggested changes:
    - Change ESPN to OLN
    - Mountain Dew qualifying age should be as of 2005, not 2004
     
  6. Detroit confirms.

    Two small edits though ...
    (i) Mountain Dew award age criteria should say 21 or younger as of Sept 30, 2005 (not 2004)
    (ii) I would remove the commitments for teams that we are getting new GM's for (SJS, MIN, etc.)

    I'll leave the commitments for the GM-less teams for the moment, only as a point of reference for the new GM to consider when they come on board. It won't go through until they commit or submit one way or another.

    Edmonton is backing out of their Mountain Due Endorsement, and instead signing up for GM Motor Company, cause we are professional grade. =)

    So Edmonton's endorsements are: TSN, GM, and PowerAde

    I confirm the three I had choose(Synergy, Southwest and Gatorade). I would also like to include Mountain Due so I have a total of four deals made.

    Speaking of Synergy. It says I must improve by 20points(or 30) but where can I check how many points TBL got last year?

    For New Jersey ---
    Please remove the Mountain Dew endorsement since too many of my top prospects are going to spend a lot of time in the NHL or are too old.
    Please sign me up for Budweiser instead (although I hate to endorse such a bad beer, but money is money.)

    Crap, I just noticed both my hopefulls, Arnason and Dimimtrakos, have turned 26 over the break, leaving me without a forward to compete for the PowerAde award. So Colorado is only up for the Mountain Dew award.
