Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by mach 1, Mar 7, 2005.
rebook has signed crosby to a multiyear multimillion dollar contract.not bad for a 17 year old.
Likely nowhere near what Labron's endorsements were worth at that age!
Open up Lebron vs. Crosby
This is good for the sport finally advertisement with hockey player
Good for Sid! And good for hockey! I hope his marketing campaign is as successful as hell! It can only help hockey to have a young player out in the media. He's well-spoken and comes across as a genuinely nice kid.
Let's hope Nike tries to outdo Reebok.
Exactly! What a great way for Reebok to enter the hockey arena. I would have bought thurr product regardless of this endorsement just because I always wanna try out new equipment.
Open up NBA vs. NHL ... wait, what NHL!!?!?!!?
Finally a ray of light this year!!! Reebok has lost a lot of ground to Nike over the past 10 years. Hopefully they will market the hell out of the Kid in an attempt to get their name out there in the hockey world.
And their new equipment lineup does sound interesting doesn't it.
And personally, I think the NHL needs another superstar to pit up against the NBA. Just like the old days of The Great One vs. Air Jordan
Sid the Kid vs. King James. sound good?
great, another kid getting too much money
Sorry, but how is this any different then a rookie signing a contract for the max with bonuses?
Does this mean Crosby has to wear a Reebok helmet and gear? Reebok stick, skates, gloves, ect?
Reebok has Crosby, Malkin, Datsyuk, Fleury, Raycoft, and the Sedins already. Plus the older guys.
Not a bad start, let's hope they can expose the hell out of these guys.
i believe he will have to wear there gear.i'am sure he doen't mind for a couple $$$
I was wondering why I saw Henrik Sedin in their new commercial with Amonte, Modano, and Pronger...
Haven't seen the commercial yet. Could you describe it?
With the way this thread is heading, this might belong in the business section.
Edit: already a thread there
Ive never seen a commercial hockey ad in the US on television or billboards or radio. Maybe this can be a start.
Good for him. We need it. Thanks Reebok
we need this kind of exposure
Reebok has Bergeron too I believe.
That has me sold. Screw you Nike... Bergeron is ma booy.
Probably not but apparently it out does any endorsement deal ever for a hockey
player including the best deals signed by Gretzky and Lemieux.However comparing
hockey to the other major sports just doesn't work when it comes to endorsments.
Without the TV audience of the other sports hockey doesn't have the broad
exposure to enable the players to earn the really huge bucks in endorsements.
