Default DeAngelo Hall Loses Reebok Contract


Quote:
BOSTON (AP) - Atlanta Falcons cornerback DeAngelo Hall lost his endorsement deal with Reebok after wearing cleats with the Nike swoosh during a Monday night game.

"Effective immediately, DeAngelo Hall will no longer be a Reebok-endorsed athlete," John Lynch, vice president of sports marketing for Reebok, said in a statement.

The company, headquartered in Canton, Mass., declined further comment Thursday on Hall's multiyear deal. Hall's agent, Joel Segal, did not immediately return calls Thursday from The Associated Press.

Hall, who leads the Falcons with four interceptions this season, was supposed to be wearing Reebok shoes in Atlanta's 27-14 victory over the New York Jets on Monday night. He signed with Reebok after he was drafted No. 8 overall last year.

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.

Damn, how hard is it to wear Reebok over Nike when millions of dollars are the incentive? I wouldn't even own any Nike, just to make sure I didn't do it by accident.

Default Is Nike behind it?

I bet that Nike became interested in him after the Philly game (where he kept TO in check). So it wouldn't suprise me he in the near future you hear he signs with NIKE.

Supposedly Reebok was to make a shoe specifically for him and it didnt arrive in time. He "put all his eggs in one basket" and it didnt work out, so he wore the Nikes. His contract was pretty new(signed IN this season) so it makes sense if they didnt get the product to him on time. Perhaps Nike fits his foot better than Reebok and Reebok had to make a custom for him, which obviously didnt show up.
