READY, SET, LOGO: NCAA, ADIDAS PREPARE CLOSING ARGUMENTS
Published February 23, 1999
NCAA attorneys will present their final written arguments to U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Van Bebber today in the suit brought by adidas America regarding the size restriction of commercial logos on players' uniforms, according to Steve Rock of the K.C. STAR. adidas lawyers are "offering assurances that this case is not a precursor to walking billboards." However, NCAA lawyers "warn" about the precedent of dropping restrictions on just apparel manufacturers, possibly leaving the NCAA "vulnerable to other companies that want equal representation on the uniform of the next Ricky Williams." Big East Conference Commissioner Michael Tranghese: "This decision could have incredible ramifications" (K.C. STAR, 2/23).
