    The NFL announced Tuesday that Nike will be the official uniform provider of the NFL beginning in April 2012. As CNBC reported Monday, Nike will produce all on-field apparel including game uniforms and base layer, as well as sideline personnel apparel and fan gear. As part of the deal presented before NFL ownership Tuesday morning in Chicago, New Era will be the official on-field headwear supplier and will produce hats for the sidelines and for fans. Under Armour will continue to outfit players for the NFL combine. All the deals run for five years. “We have spent considerable time the past few years rigorously evaluating our apparel business,â€￾ said Eric Grubman, the NFL’s executive vice president of NFL Ventures and Business Operations, said in a statement. “The new framework will provide fans with a wider breadth of merchandise from global category leaders in the sports licensed apparel industry.â€￾

    That sucks for Reebok. I'm happy about it. Nike's T-shirts fit much better than Reebok's. Interested to see how "drastic" the jersey change is...

    NewEra is the top dog. But NewEra football hats will never surpass Baseball hats. They will never ever look better and that's just a fact. I'm sure the gangsters will have a field day with them though.

    This thread is about Nike and Reebok, not hats and new era needle American stuff. Go make a thread in off topic if you want to battle apparel brands.

    He didn't post anything off the topic of the thread. So please keep this thread on topic, which isn't baseball hats and gangsters. And easy on the attacks.

    This doesn't really concern Cowboys fans cause they'd never be given permission to alter our Jerseys.
