I agree with your principle. My point is, the Board should only be deciding on topics where there is a good reason not to make it public.
What was the good reason for the board to decide on the football team and not to make it public?
Because, unlike the vast amount of other sponsorships which the Project decides upon without the Board's direct involvement, the unusual nature of this one led to the marketing team (who normally decide on sponsorships) asking the Board for our opinion.
It seems the appropriate response in this instance would have been (and yes, this is with 20/20 hindsight) "That's a good question for the project membership, let's ask them". :)
