Default boycotting united sponsors

One way of fighting glazer is to boycot the sponsors of the club, but does anyone have a full list of who they are??

It would be useful to know so that people can do their most to hit this yank in the pocket.

I registered yesterday for these forums, and also signed up for membership of ShareholdersUnited.

I am very computer literate. However, I do not find these forums at all userfriendly. Something more easily navigable by subject is needed.

It would be very, very helpful for newbies if there could be a separate page on the website, amongst all the 'contact', 'about', etc. called "what you can do" - stuff like all this information on who to boycott/how, really should be more easily accessible.

In the US, consumer boycotts of sponsors do work. They have worked in the past. For example, many programmes in the US have corporate sponsors and programmes have been pulled from broadcasters' schedules when US consumers have objected to the programme content and communicated their dislike to programme sponsors and threatened to boycott sponsors because of their association with a particular programme.

For boycotts to be effective, they really do need to be more widely communicated and better organised.

the topic with all the sponsor details should be put at the top of the page so that it's easy to find and more accessible.
Cheers
