Adults should be able to discern what products they wish to purchase regardless of whom they choose to sponsor. Baseball is full of chewing tobacco users - look at all the spitting. I am not going to be swayed to try a product or stop watching a sport because of the sponsor. I'd rather they sponsor a sport than be inundated with commercials.
What about bowling and billiards? These sporting events are full of overweight smokers. Or darts? I don't know, let whoever sponsor whatever. It's their money.
Sports have something to do with activities that keep our health while cigarettes are closely related to things that are detrimental to our health. Knowing that fact, I think cigarette companies should not be allowed to sponsor sport events like the World Cup or Olympic Games. The committee of the sport events should be able to find other sponsors that are not related to cigarettes. I believe there are plenty of companies which are willing to sponsor big sport events.
