Uniforms?
 
Crossfit games will have uniforms!? This is the same Crossfit that had 10 ways to get kicked out of a globo gym? I really want someone to own up to making that decision. My guess is that no one will. Discuss... :rofl:

Everyone must wear crappy Reebok clothes.

Very nice. How about we make all the guys wear the booty shorts and sports bra's, and girls can wear board shorts and T shirts? :)

Those are amazing. And the best part is that if anyone complains, you can turn it around and end the argument by accusing them of hating America.

I'm all for equality.

Everyone goes topless.

Nah, cause then they'll break out the flag code pamphlet and point out that those guys are desecrating the US Flag. It's a no win that way. :stir:

As for uniforms, it looks like athletes can take off the shirt (and shorts?) prior to the event start or even during. However, they just can't have a competing brand logo visible on their other items except for shoes. So, it is about brand recognition and not about identifying athletes.

Anyway, sounds reasonable and all the hoopla is just a lot of sound and fury. Reebok has ponied up millions, and all the athletes and judges and staff have to do is sport the name a little bit. Even Coach said years ago that if some company offered up 50,000 dollars for the game purse and all that was needed was to wear a shirt, he'd wear the shirt.

I'm hoping that there are different colors and styles though. Don't want it to look too monotanous. :king:

I don't even understand what you just said. I'm going to sum it up as, "I hate America."

On another note, I also wore a Pabst Blue Ribbon shirt that said, "IT AIN'T YOUR DADDY'S BEER" that was all red, white and blue as well as the American flag shorts and our judge said, "God damn that's American."
