Kapo, Emo, Zlatan, canna..what dothey have in common?? Apart form the obvious...they all wear nike? 80% of our aquisisitons are nike men...probably coincidence....but could nike have a controling factor?? issuin a minimum quota of nike players?? Last year, players like conte, enzo, tac, rambo, oli, etc etc all began to wear nike....is there somesort of widespread deal??

Jus wondering if anyone else noted this.:D

nah, doubt that nike has something to do with these signing. tho i woulnt mind, they give us the money, we buy their players. besides, biggest stars in our club - del piero, nedved, buffon - they dont wear nikes. adidas, uhl sport and pume there.

as for conte, olivera, tacchinardi and maresca. i doubt they had contracts with any brand therefore they were supposed to wear nike. only zambrotta has a contract with umbro before, but then i believe nike signed him as well.

don't forget that donkey Nedved with uhlsport :D

speaking of Nike though, now that Zlatan has moved to (let's face it) a bigger club, I'm looking forward to seeing him in one of their new ads :cool:

Zala? I'm not so sure he has the control or skills to star in a Nike ad :p

I didn't know that a player had to wear the team's sponsor!

If this is true, that means that uhlsport actually contracted Chimenti :howler:

i'm pretty much sure of that. maybe they're not supposed to that but if they dont want to wear nikes which are given by the club they can buy they're own selected boots :howler: i can already see iuliano buying on-sale diadoras from subside

I highly doubt that. As if is gonna make Del Piero buy his own boots if he doesn't wear Nike shoes... that's what the whole point of endorsement is; they give him shoes and all that for free, and he wears them to show how good the boots are
