    I'm sorry, but I find that article very hard to believe. There's no way that Adidas can force a medal winner to wear it's outfit on the medal podium...what can they do to him/her, take away his/her medal? I also find it hard to believe that you can't use any credit card but Visa.

    I think some of the original Dream Team members got into trouble with a conflict like this.

    Not trouble but Jordan wore a flag over his shoulder covering the reebock logo since his contract was with Nike.

    That actually has been the case for the last few Olympics....

    Same with all those stores/restaurants/etc on all those Visa commercials... "and remember to bring your Visa card, because Pineapple Willy's Doesn't take American Express"

    I'm with Mili on this one. I know Jordan and others with personal sponsorship contracts had some problem with it, but how does a company or corporation make an athlete wear its logo if they don't have a contract with that individual?

    I have used my MasterCard in countries like Belgium, Germany, France, Luxembourg, Japan, Korea, Philippines, and Thailand, and have never had it refused. In fact, I've never seen a place that didn't take MasterCard if they took Visa. I've seen places that wouldn't take Amerian Express, but never a place that didn't take MasterCard.

    Its only for Ticket sales.

    For 30 Million Bucks... the IOC/Athens Committee will tell you you have to pay with shiny indian beads if they have to.

    Does Adidas want the athlete wearing their logo when he admits he used roids?

    Wow, and I thought the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games was Nazi.

    As if the big time $ponser$ won't have enough visibility. I'm guessing we'll be absolutely saturated by ads from Coke, et al by the time the games are over.

    :roll2:
