    NFL and Neumann

    What is the deal with the NFL and them not displaying anything with the Neumann symbol? For those who don't know, Neumann makes many various football products such as gloves, arm coaches, etc....however, everytime you see them in the NFL the logo is either taken off the glove or colored in with black marker to not show teh symbol at all.

    Does anyone know why this is?

    i am guessing it has to do with reebok being the official gear provider

    If that is the case, then why doesn't Reebok make arm coaches or even winter coaching gloves that you see a lot of coaches wearing when its cold out there.

    I am not sure that is the only reason i can think of. i wish they would just let the teams wear whatever they want to wear, but money is money.

    And paying to be "official". And Neuman doesn't give the NFL a penny. Or so I'm guessing. It's an advertising issue.
