In Topic: Will "This Is Gross" return?

I'll be looking forward to it and it'll still be unique, but it's not going to be quite the same now that he's not playing for us though, especially with the new players after he's left.  Part of what made it special was he was one of the guys that was out there in the trenches with them and bonding with them throughout the dog days of OTAs and training camp, where a large portion of the talking points came from.

 

No more "Hahaha, remember that time when ______ did _____" moments with guys like Kelvin, Kony, J-Co, Avant, and others.  Although a Decoud or Harper one should be interesting in its own right.

Ray Charles could've seen this one coming.

I could be wrong but does Luck have any major endorsements like Cam does with UA? For that matter do any NFL players? Cam's the face of UA in the same way that MJ was the face of Nike back in the 90's. Can't say that about any other NFL player to the best of my knowledge.

 

Luck is with Nike I think, but yeah there's plenty of endorsements for other athletes over here.  I just meant off pure media backing and hype, never seen him in a commercial though.  The media is very influential in forming the general population's opinion.  

 

Peyton Manning used to have a new commercial every week it seemed like back in his heyday, and he's still got all the Kia, Papa Johns, etc. commercials.  RG3 was everywhere before and after his rookie year and UA pumps him up a lot over here... they've honestly latched on to RG3 more than Cam it seems IMO.  But then again the Redskins are a huge market team in the States along with the Cowboys and Steelers.  Cam is still extremely popular for us to be such a small market though.  More so than any other athlete we've ever had.  Extremely polarizing... it seems everyone at least has some sort of opinion on him, whether good or bad.

 

That's why I thought it was weird and cool that you said Cam is the face over there.  At least they realize given a neutral audience that Cam is far more marketable. :P  Lol, outside of the laptop thing when he was like 18 years old, Cam might be one of the most naturally marketable athletes to come along in a while.  I imagine if we string together a few back-to-back winning seasons (and hopefully win a Super Bowl)  Cam's popularity will soar through the roof.

Great article.

UnderArmour are starting to market Cam over here in the UK the same way Nike do with LeBron James. They know that because the sport isn't major, name recognition isn't enough. Most people in the UK know LeBron James as that Basketball guy and hopefully soon Cam will be that NFL guy. Then if the NFL kicks off big time over here Cam will already be the face of the NFL over here.

 

A UK team would probably be bad for the NFL but great for Cam, I think he would instantly become huge in Europe thanks to UnderArmour.

 

Really?  That's pretty cool to know.  At the same time it's still sad to know that the same thing isn't happening over here.  We've got the second coming of Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck hype machine over here.
