Guys, we're talking about visor clips, things so insignificant that Cam didn't even pick them for his helmet, the equipment manager did. And the only football items that sell to the average fan are jerseys, nobody buys football cleats to wear around the house. UA may enjoying the free publicity but they're not hoping to sell a million of little plastic clips.

I'm talking about the big picture, not just visor clips.  Think of the visor clips as just the catalyst for something much larger they could potentially get rolling.

 

Like flat out rolling out with non-sanctioned non-blacked out signature Cam Newton Under Armour gear on game day.  That would generate tons of press and capitalize on the story they've already got going.  And with a player as popular/notorious as Cam Newton... I really think there's a huge opportunity there.

 

He's already the front man for the whole thing, might as well go with it.

The difference is Goodell can and will increase the fine each time and it will quickly lead to suspension.  He's not gonna just fine $10k each game it happens.  Not worth it.  It would snowball quick.

After this whole Under Armour visor controversy with Cam as the front man taking the heat duing the whole shebang (completely ignoring a hundred other players violating the rules, but whatever) I got to thinking this could be an excellent marketing opportunity for both Cam and UA.  Like really big.

 

Under Armour simply couldn't buy the type of publicity they've gotten over this past week--and that they're likely going to continue to get the following weeks as they'll no doubt talk about it at our next game.  Now... they could simply just cash in and enjoy the publicity they've gotten so far, ooorrrr they could go down an old legendary path that was paramount in turning Nike into the corporate giant that it is today:

Now everyone knows that, whether you love him or hate him, we have one of the most marketable faces in the NFL in our young QB Cam Newton.  Merely mentioning his name in your article title leads to guaranteed hits.  Not only that, but he has nearly unparalleled talent, which if realized, could end with him being one of the all-time greats.

So what do you think they should do?  This is seriously a HUGE opportunity for Cam, Under Armour, and Charlotte.  fug it, let's embrace all this poo.

yeah,  even tho it sucks that this was just another attempt to discredit cam as a decent human, i think this could be a huge boon to not only UA and cam financially, but it has made cam into a  more sympathetic figure (just look at all the comments wherever this story is popping up) and i think could make him into an even more popular player.

 

that doesn't take away from the fact that this was a douche move from that forbes writer hack and totally unfair that he be singled out for a fine. i just hope that this turns into a positive thing for newton and the panthers.

I thought this was going to be about steroid use and gambling addiction.

He could actually wear whatever he wanted during the suspension he receives for wear a completely different uniform.

I thought this too. UA is a rising brand (it's quickly replacing Nike on my campus). If Cam becomes any more profitable, UA could be officially sponsored by The NFL a few years from now.
