Disagree - more teams should be like the Yankees, and put their brand and traditions first and foremost.  I wish my team did.

I meant it more in the sense that the Yankees shouldn’t get special treatment. If the rest of the league gets the swoosh, then the Yankees have to have it too. They’re not special.

With the nike logo, Myself I think MLB logo will be on all jersey even the Yankees 

 

North American teams where in it for the money, they do what soccer teams do. Make a new jerseys every year. Plus Sonpors or Clothings brands pay big money to be apart of the teams. See big money in Soccer jerseys. They make the most out offany sports.

Sure they are, if they can resist it than any team can.  And every team should have the right. 

 

If the Yankees can indeed fight logo creep, they ought to.

What if the league make a rule they have to have nike logo on jersey?

 

Who said they are fighting the logo, a fan or the team?

We don’t know.  They successfully fought it before, but I don’t think there’s any reason to believe they are fighting it now.  Steinbrenner’s kids have already shown they don’t have the resolve of their father, or his care for the club’s legacy.

 

I’m just saying I won’t fault Yankee fans for wanting them to fight it.  Quite the contrary, actually.  I wish other fanbases cared as much, my own included.

I don’t think there’s a team in any of the major professional sports that would take the financial hit necessary to keep a manufacturer’s logo off their uniform. Any hopes of the Yankees being that holdout team died when they wore BP caps in a game. 

 

It is going to happen, it is going to look terrible, and we will have to get used to it.

The Yankees did hold out.  Until George died. His kids don’t care about it the way he did.

 

I agree that it’s coming.  But again, I only wish that other fans cared as much as some Yankee fans do.  I certainly won’t criticize them for wanting their club to hold out again.

That’s because soccer is the biggest sport in the world.  They can command the highest price. 

 

But your next quote highlights the problem with that kind of sponsorship - when one team can get x amount of money, and the next gets 10x, that creates an unhealthy imbalance.

Do not seeing a big deal cause nike does stuff with the Yankees, I could see it being on the jersey.

Well companies pay the big money to be on the jersey. They know how well the team is know and followed around the world. Some Team soccer jersey you can tell who they are cause of the sponsor they have

That doesn’t make it a good idea.  

 

The corporate interest of major international design firms isn’t my highest concern.

You are perhaps unaware that “Premiership” is an informal nickname for the Premier League, formerly the FA Premier League, formerly the Football League First Division, which was its name when I first started following Arsenal.  COYG.

When the First Division reorganized itself into the Premier League, they considered breaking from the Football Leage and FA entirely.  And they thought that might preclude them from using the word “league” in their name.  So they considered “Premiership” as their official name, and even when they learned it wasn’t necessary the name still stuck as an informal nickname.

When it comes to sponsorships on uniforms, American leagues at the highest level are way behind the rest of the world. I wonder if the growing popularity of international soccer in the states has something to do with things changing here. Are ads on uniforms seen as the norm by a younger generation of sports fans? As someone pointed out earlier, Manchester United makes a lot of money off their sponsorship deals. The world didn’t end with the NBA putting ads on. That’s leaving the rest of the teams looking to catch-up and cash-in.
