If you're thinking, "Where the hell is Ada?" you're not alone. It's in the northwest portion of the state, about halfway between Columbus and Toledo. Along with the usual small-town staples -- a tavern here, a beauty salon there -- it has two notable institutions: the campus of Ohio Northern University (its teams, which compete in Division III, are called the Polar Bears) and the Wilson football factory, which has turned out every single NFL ball since 1955, along with millions of balls for college, high school and youth leagues.

It's sad that every high school, college, and recreational football and basketball player has to subject themselves to cheap balls that can shred the flesh of even the toughest of athletes like Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash.
Luckily those lower tier athletes aren't throwing 400 balls a day, every day.

Has the cost of leather risen dramatically or something? Why change for the sake of change?
they are trying to suck up every single penny that they possibly can

sounds more like someone trying to change for the sake of change.
Really doubt if they are getting cuts on their fingers, if the same laces have been used at other levels for years. Sounds like typical bitching to resist change.
still haven't heard one good reason to make the change.
