I wasn't going to "name and shame" but this didn't seem to make any sense without it. so I have!
I entered a competition to win a signed copy of a MTB DVD/box set just before Christmas. A week or so later, I was pleasantly surprised to hear I'd actually won - the DVD was still in production but I should hopefully get it before Christmas, once the folk involved had autographed it....
May the following year and I'm still waiting to receive anything. I know it's not a big prize but it was actually a DVD I was going to buy anyway but figured I wouldn't bother as a signed copy would be cool to have. Also, as a resume of the 2011 season, it's always nice to watch before the next year's racing starts!
I've emailed Extreme.com on numerous occasions - when they do eventually reply they are very apologetic but just fob me off saying they'll "chase up the people involved". To be honest I'd rather they just tell me to "bugger off, we're not honouring it any more" as I could then just forget about it.
I'm sure I could threaten to complain to xy and z but, to be frank, I can't be arsed at the moment as there are more important things to consider. Maybe I should just MTFU and ignore it but it's just got me riled.
Thanks for listening, I'm off to grumble for a bit
