NFL shoe deal / DeAngelo Hall

Notice the paragraph:

Yahoo wrote:The NFL has a 10-year endorsement deal with Reebok that began with the 2002 season. It requires players from all teams to wear Reebok apparel from head to toe, with the exception of shoes, league spokesman Brian McCarthy said.

An agreement with Nike allows players to choose Nike shoes or Reeboks. And some, including Hall, have contracts to wear one brand or the other. Players can wear shoe brands other than Nike or Reebok only if the logos are covered with tape or paint.


Anyone else think this is a load of crap? The NFL only allows you to wear non-Reebok or Nike shoes if they're covered in tape? And your jock better be Reebok... watch out. That's a load of crap.

Something smells fishy, this is just plain dumb- corporate interference everywhere. Can you imagine if your workplace had this deal?

well... if my work provided me with armani suits (or other appropriate italian apparel) I wouldn't object to it so much, but if they expected me to go out and buy it -- NO WAY! :)

At least the only thing the players really have to buy that shows up is shoes

Pro players actually get a contract to play in a brand of shoes, even the guys that just play special teams might get like 5 grand + swag to wear Nike shoes for the entire season. I don't think they mind.
