Schools dropping/suing Adidas
I read this article a couple weeks ago and never saw anything about it posted. After reading Brian's uniform complaints and the comments that followed, I figured it should be brought up. It seems Adidas owes factory workers in Asia a few million dollars and Universities are starting to take notice. Washington and Rutgers, who's major sports are with Nike, have dropped Adidas who supply some of their smaller sports. Cornell also has recently dropped Adidas. But the biggest school/contract doing something is Wisconsin. They're actually suing Adidas. Who knows how big this will get or if Michigan will take any action. Unlikely I think, since the contract is worth so much, but hopefully it pushes them away from Adidas when the contract is up in 3 years.
