Not getting a Nike schwag bag in my hotel room. All the guys who are endorsed by Nike got sweet Super Bowl schwag, with about $5000 worth of merch, including some products from their ACG line, which I love for hiking and for outdoor use. I was endorsed by Nike for seven years, but they voided my contract (after several warnings) for "spatting" my cleats on game-days. Some of us spat, or put tape around our cleats, to keep them tight. Nike, apparently, doesn't like that their precious Swoosh gets covered up. Oh well. Wouldn't be that big of a deal if it weren't for every teammate rubbing it in my face, parading around in all their cool new gear.

Nike should design a swoosh tape.

He should play by Nike's rules or not complain... pretty simple

No kidding. "Swoosh tape" shouldn't be that hard to manufacture. Anyway, who looks at a football players' shoes?Ha!

I confused. Were you an NFL player?

I love Nike's ACG line.
