    Nike strikes uniform deal with NFL

    Nike to become NFL's uniform provider in 2012 - ESPN

    I'm looking forward to seeing what Nike does with NFL uniforms. They can't possibly do any worse than what Reebok did to the Falcons' uniforms...

    First. It's a league mandate, NFL teams don't get to choose their provider.

    Second. Adidas owns Reebok.

    Will they change that much? I mean, I hope they don't. I'll be fine with them changing the modern-looking jerseys, but not my Packers jerseys .

    Adidas does a ton of soccer stuff, so I'm guessing that's where they get most of their profit.

    Not a huge deal for me. I'd rather them have new cool looking jerseys. Bought a Favre Vikings jersey for cheap on Ebay just to wear for the few games I'm going to this year and bought a Fred Jackson Bills Throwback jersey, since he went to Coe.

    That's up to the teams, not Nike. Nike was the uniform provider for a few teams in the mid 90's and nothing extreme happened to the uniforms. This is the NFL not college, NFL teams aren't going to be wearing gimmicky uniforms like some schools do.

    Re: Nike strikes uniform deal with NFL

    It will be interesting if the Appeals Courts decide that the NFL can't choose who makes their licensed gear.

    Issue: Whether NFLP, the NFL, and the teams functioned as a “single entity” when granting the company an exclusive headwear license and therefore could not violate Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. 1, which requires proof of collective action involving “separate entities.”
