The final word on the ball (a lesson from the NBA)…

7 Jun

…and then we can let the games begin

Also, as an aside, if adidas want to send me one, I would be happy to give it a whirl!

A very nice article from 3 years ago. This talks about how the NBA gave into player power and reverted back to the old style leather ball from a newly introduced composite one. Now, I am not saying this is what FIFA, adidas or anyone else should do. Innovation is progress and some of footballs innovation in recent years is really rather impressive. I am merely highlighting what others have done when the users of the ball kick up a fuss.

Make your own minds up…only not just yet.
