Reebok can't be too happy with the beginning of the NFL draft

I was watching the opening of the draft where they were talking about Virginia Tech. They had the VT alumni standing up on stage and they all had VT hats. The problem was they were Nike hats. I bet Reebok isn't too happy about that after all the money they paid the NFL for exclusive rights.

I think Reebok will let this one slide considering the circumstances.

You'd hope so, but after Vitaminwatergate, nothing would surprise me from either the NFL or Reebok.

I think they should fine the NFL, and fine them huge.

Then take that fine money and donate it to VT. :D

Anyone notice that Adrian Peterson had a Nike pin on while sitting at the table but then as he walked up to the podium one of the NFL guys stopped him and took it off?

Well they should... but that would imply that American corporations had souls...

Yeah, funny I noticed that almost right away. And on a personal note, I think everyone wearing VT pins on their suits is a little ridiculous. Unless of course the money being spent on those pins is being donated to a victim's fund or something like that.

I was at the draft for work...

A few things...all 5 players that were there were Nike Players. Their entire families had Nike lapel pins on their suits. Maybe not on stage (I couldn't see) but outside they were definatly there. The entire Russell family was wearing them.

The VT thing...I'm sure Reebok doesn't care in this case. Maybe something was said internally, but plenty of players wear Nike Shoes during games. Its not an exclusive contract for everything. The only exclusive is NFL headwear and jerseys and I think player stuff (IE...Brett Farve T-shirts). Team shirts/shorts/etc. and footwear are not exclusive.

And reebok does have college rights. Not sure what the limitations are but there are certain things they can produce. I'm not sure if headwear is one of those. And of course its more of a school to school issue than a NCAA wide issue.
