Interesting listening to Darren Gough on talk sport yesterday talking about how he'd heard that Wednesday turned down Nike's offer of manufacturing the first team kit and training kit even though they offered the biggest deal outside of the premiership.

 

It makes you wonder what's behind DC's thinking. A bit of egotism maybe?

The bold part of the above quote was when I stopped reading it.

There are so many reasons I find that hard to believe.  Let's be fair, it's always going to be better for us to make our own kit than take a deal with a manufacturer who will want a percentage.  


Just not bothered...

The 1st thing I thought was, "how would he know?".

 

That's not slating him.

In all seriousness with the fact we are having to transport the kits 12,000 miles from where they are made in Australia, the time in takes the kit to come out, the thousands of kits left over each season.

 

Does anyone really think we have made that much by making our own kit 

 

Nike, Adidas, Puma, Diadora make football kits for a living the cost maybe £5-10 to make and sell for £40.

 

We have made them ourselves, transported them ourselves, had the shipment arrive late every year, then had to order a volume so the order would be made over what we needed then charge £59 a shirt.

 

I think when you compare how our shirts are made by a manufacturer, to making them ourselves the difference in profit will be minor but the difference in hassle and reach of the advertising will be massive. outside of Sheffield has anyone seen an Owls shirt in a shop.

 

Compare that to Leeds Utd shirts made by Kappa probably in every sport store in the UK.

Nice one pal.

 

Glad you're putting the message out there.

 

Don't forget...

 

It's ESSENTIAL to always slate the pundit/journalist/publication

 

 

 

Now go and do as Neil says.
