Actually Nike will be the uniforms of the NFL starting in 2012. I think a lot of the preferences that kids have for Nike over Adidas is that it can be a culture preference. All of th freshest kicks that young teenagers where are Nike. Whether they are Air Force Ones, Jordans, Dunks, or Air Maxes. It ain't cool rockin' a whole sweatsuit of Adidas with a pair of Nike shoes. Plus, as much as us UM fans don't like the Oregon uniforms, many kids love how they have many different unis. Even if they do use their uniforms as marketing tool.
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
