God bless those madcap jesters over at Newcastle University who took the opportunity yesterday to prank their students by circulating the following photo of cranes replacing their iconic emblem with the ‘Sports Direct’ logo on their main building on their official website yesterday along with the news that the University had sold its naming rights to the sportswear merchants….

Good wholesome fun!

If you can’t work out why Newcastle Uni having Mike Ashley’s company’s name splashed all over it might not go down too well with the Geordie contingent then, frankly, you have no business being on Pies in the first place.
