I know "impossible is nothing", but how in the world can a human being reach those 5 folders on the top of the shelf?

That's such a cop out thing to say. If you hate something then that should be even more of a reason to want to put your own finger print on it and make it better. I wonder how much love Apple was feeling in the early 90's compared to today. Use your imagination for once! Geez

3 stripes that are a part of culture. How many times haven't you seen a product with two stripes either on a tv show/movie or jacket?

It's classic and any brand would just about kill to have that. The swoosh is famous, but not on the "3-stripes" level.

So they patented the three stripes. Big deal! Nike is a much more popular and visible brand in TV, movies and everyday life.

About time Sunderland got a decent make! I was at the Stadium of Light for the first time this season to watch Everton play and let me tell you Sunderland are a major sleeping giant! 43000 fans there!!!!

This is really cool! Too bad I'm not a designer.
I'd just like to say that Adidas maybe realized how awful they went with this seasons designs!
If any member from FSC gets the job, please make Adidas design more attractive football kits.!

I am 13 and I have design ideas, is this a possible career choice, because I can design the best kits and I know what looks good in the football field.
