    Hmmm following you?

    One thread in Open Discussion and then one in the Most Recent Threads on the front page...hmmm yes I see where you are coming from :roll2:

    Really, I was following Mili, but since your obsession with him lately has you chasing him on every thread, it just seems like I'm following you.

    After the MRI, they're saying severe ankle sprain, but Kobe will miss at least 5 games. They put him on the Injured List, which I believe means he's out for at least 15 days.

    Kobe Bryant Resumes Endorsement Career

    <!-- END HEADLINE --> <!-- BEGIN STORY BODY --> By The Associated Press 7 minutes ago

    DENVER - Nike is using photos of Kobe Bryant for the first time since his arrest two years ago for an alleged assault on a female employee at a Colorado resort.

    <script type="text/javascript">if (window.yzq_a == null) document.write("<scr\\" + \\"ipt type=text/javascript src=""></scr" + "ipt>"); </script><script type="text/javascript"> if (window.yzq_a) { yzq_a('p', 'P=8olxj86.I3pegFUwQioLgQt9GFhdekLQK9sADMwP&T=15k5iff0l%2fX%3d1120938971%2fE%3d55739751%2fR%3dnews%2fK%3d5%2fV%3d1.1%2fW%3d8%2fY%3dYAHOO%2fF%3d2694065556%2fH%3dY2FjaGVoaW50PSJuZXdzIiBjb250ZW50PSJLb2JlIEJyeWFudDtJdCI-%2fS%3d1%2fJ%3d4323BECE'); yzq_a('a', '&U=139ee8ssp%2fN%3dObpcPs6.IsI-%2fC%3d320917.5552191.7361443.1442997%2fD%3dLREC%2fB%3d2700588'); } </script><noscript></noscript>"Nike agrees with most NBA observers that Kobe ranks among the very best players in the NBA, and his training and preparation are key elements of his game," said Nike spokesman Rodney Knox.
    The ads appear in Sports Illustrated, and are the first to use Bryant's image. His name appeared in an ad earlier this year.

    Prosecutors dismissed a rape charge against Bryant last September after his alleged victim refused to go ahead with the case. Bryant publicly apologized to her without admitting any guilt.

    A civil suit filed by the alleged victim against Bryant was settled out of court. Its details were not released.

    Bryant had signed a $45 million deal with Nike shortly before his arrest. McDonald's and Nutella both dropped Bryant from their roster of celebrity endorsers after his arrest.

    Cynthia Stone, spokeswoman for the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault, criticized Nike's decision.

    "Corporations like Nike play a huge part in creating role models for millions of young athletes," she said. "It would be a great inspiration to those young people if the endorsers were not only accomplished athletes, but also had a reputation for positive and ethical conduct."

    Why do you say Only in America? I wouldn't be surprised if an athlete like Diego Maradona was raking in the endorsement dollars in other countries despite his many problems... Really, I don't know, but I have a feeling this kind of thing is rampant in many countries.
