Reebok and Crossfit: here we go.

http://www.newarkadvocate.com/articl...MAN-FOR-REEBOK (WFS)

Obviously the newark advocate as a source for this is a bit...strange, but just the same, what do you guys think of this? Is this really an "incorporation" of crossfit and reebok (like sicfit seems to imply http://sicfit.com/article/2874-Reebo...esource_page=4 WFS) or just Graham getting a sponsorship (not terribly different from the Spealler adidas commercials)?

Just sponsorship:

a spokesman for Reebok and CrossFit.
So it sounds like Crossfit and Reebok are in a friendly relationship, but I don't see anything that would even begin to suggest that Reebok/Crossfit are merging.

Same thing with SicFit - they only mention sponsorship, nothing more.

That doesn't meant that things are happening in the background, but from this limited media it's nothing more than Reebok taking advantage of a marketing opportunity and aligning itself with a movement that it likes and wants to reflect.

Nike is Basketball/Golf/etc so why can't Reebok be Crossfit?
