I'm not shouting, I'm whispering intensely.


"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard

VIKINGS

Can't believe I didn't get that. On the bright side Sweden is going to be just like the Vikings if Lundquvist keeps sucking.

Nike must have a contract with the IOC or IIHF vs. with National Olympic committees like Roots or The Bay have had with Canada in the past.

 

I guess it is similar to the NHL where the teams can't source their own supplier for uniforms, the league would want some level of "uniformity" when it comes to jerseys, etc.

 

Which is absolutely idiotic. Teams especially national teams should have the option to choose their own jersey manufacturer meaning Team Sweden has one from Sweden, USA from the US and Canada from Canada. The IOC and IIHF are just a bunch of know it all greedy wannabees - much like the NHL under Buttman. Designwise things in hockey went downhill after Reebook and Nike started buy Baur and CCM, glad they didn't buy Graf.

For the record, I hate the Reebok System. I don't care if they're lighter and more comfortable and all the same and whatever. Look at the Avs jerseys from the mid-90s and look at them now. The Evil Powers That Be said, "You know what, this stuff needs to be cheaper. Dirt cheap. But we're gonna charge the same for retail. Hahaha!"

Yeah, Nike has a contract with someone, I'm not sure if it's the IOC or IIHF.  They are the official uniform supplier.

Tackla was the supplier in the late 80s and early 90s.
