Itís a business. They have who knows how many jerseys already manufactured for guys that will be useless if they change numbers. Makes sense to me when the players are millionaires. Even the 53rd guy on the team should be good paying for the 5 jerseys of his they manufactured.

Isn't it the same in the NBA? That's why Anthony Davis wore #3 and LeBron didn't change from #23 to #6.

wouldnt they be one in the same in this instance then? because if what you are saying is true then it's nike that is saying players cant change their number unless they do this and thats hard to believe.

we can protest against the NFL AND NBA for the way they conduct some things but people don't realize its a business and money need to be made and you can't be bad for business or ask for a trade after we just paid you all that money

Whatís hard to believe? Nike telling people that if you change your number or name that youíd have to buy the inventory?

Donít understand your question however. But Iíll try to answer.

No. Theyíre not one in the same. Meaning if Nike didnít care and the NFL did, you wouldnít say Nike didnít allow the change.

Also, if Nike didnít care and the NFL didnít care, one wouldnít correctly say NFL allows the change.

Bottom line, the licensing partner has the control over the apparel. Just like players having to hide other brands logos.

Thereís a lot of conflicting information out there regarding whose rule it actually is, but Iím pretty sure itís Nike

It doesn't cost much to make a uniform and anyone who bought a players uniform with their old number may force more sales because now that person needs to purchase a new uniform.

The problem with that is the rookies coming in can take those numbers very fast and free. If a player seriously wants the change, he's paying for it and not taking a chance on a rookie jumping on it.

If people feel that got fu*ked on a transaction, they are more hesitant to buy that same product again.

Why buy the new jersey? I just bought the old one?
Why buy the new jersey? For him to switch numbers again as soon as I buy it?

it makes sense. Especially if that player on a 53 man roster signed to be apart of the nflpa and then has a likeness deal clause within he is contract....






They are owning a chance at their brands





on some side thought, they maybe letting those men play without inhibition or they are hiding money within contracts per legal loophole

Or maybe some foul conspiracy about to happen so they finding a way to corner players .... Maybe stadium workers are gonna sell jerseys of lamar jackson for having a great year so he wants to exchange his jersey with the punter and he couldn't so they find a reason to kick ppl out the stadium despite coronavirus spiking in cities

what im not understanding is how nike can tell them this unless the players have a contract directly with nike. even in the example of players having to hide their logos, that's something that is enforced by the league no? doesn't the ultimate say on this come down to the league?

so if a player is where a brand that isn't in partnership with the league, it's the league that fines them...not the brand. so i guess im saying how is this not coming from the league unless the players have individual contracts with nike

if what you are saying is correct im definitely learning something new

Think of it like Microsoft n EA transactions. If u buy a Xbox points card from 711 it's already been payed for by EA at a lower rate. They, EA, sell it to the consumer for more money. Stores don't get jerseys in stock just off GP.

... the fu*k are you talking about? How does the NFL make money from nfl players having to pay back Nike for manufacturing costs?

I get it now.

Theyíre the enforcer. Itís not their rule.
You get pulled over for speeding, the cop writes you a ticket and tells you that you canít speed. Itís not correct to say itís the cops rule.

Nike says, buy back the jerseys. NFL enforces it. Think about this, why would the NFL care about number swaps but not team swaps?
