NBA approves advertisements on uniforms
NBA adds three additional uses of instant replay for 2012-13 season - ESPN
LAS VEGAS -- The NBA Board of Governors approved a new look for uniforms and a couple of changes in the use of video replay, commissioner David Stern announced Thursday night.
Stern met with the media after the Board of Governors held their annual summer meeting, and said the league is looking to add possibly $100 million in revenue by permitting small advertising patches on uniforms starting in the 2013-14 season.
"The view is that the teams would need a significant time; one, to sell the patch; and number two, for adidas to manufacture the uniforms, because the patch that would be on the players' uniforms would also appear on the jerseys at retail," said deputy commissioner Adam Silver, who is handling the uniform change.

It was just a matter of time before one of the four major American sports put advertisements on their jerseys. Now that the NBA has set precedence, it won't be long before we see advertisements on jerseys and uniforms in the NHL and NFL. I think MLB will eventually do this as well but its purists will put up the biggest fight, making its adoption a slow process.There is no liberal media, only corporate media.
