THE BRAZILIANS: KNIGHT RIDDER's Katherine Ellison reported that Nike's $400M sponsorship of the Brazil national soccer team is "looking like a bad gamble." In addition to "playing poorly," the Brazilian team deal "has embarrassed" Nike off the field as well. The Nike deal has also come under "increasing political pressure, in and outside of Brazil" (KNIGHT RIDDER/S.J. MERCURY NEWS, 6/4).
