"@rameshsrivats: Pepsi is the new sponsor of IPL. So, I suppose maiden overs will now be called Diet Pepsi Minimums." :lol:

I really don't understand how people still getting fooled of this crappy useless drink. Pepsi is making fortune frm this substandard drink. All pepsi variants. Diet, normal blah blah blah are crap. Food products are somewhat acceptable. I haven't drunk pepsi\coke in my lifetime.

Tough to say Pepsi Maximum, DLF maximum was easy :)I guess its on the consumers to decide on carbonated drinks like pepsi, cokeI prefer fruit juice to both of them, always no to cool drinks

They paid close to 400 crores (396.8) for 5 years, whereas DLF paid 200, so in reality its double. I really felt it would be lesser this time, but even Aircel offered 315 which is more than what DLF paid the 1st time.

That is obvious. But there was an indication that DLF did not gain much from the association, so obviously it was felt that others would hesitate to bid so much.

Yeah, I know. But I am talking about analysts evaluating the worth of the association. Airtel pulled of T20 Champions league. So did Nokia. And they sell products ranging hundreds and thousands, not crores. Atleast not to end customers like us. So, I was comparing in that sense.
