NFL unveils new football for 2007-2008 season.
(Reuters)—NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced yesterday that a collectible football designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel will become the official game ball starting next season.
"Cute, ain't it?" asked Goodell at the press conference, which was also attended by Lagerfeld. Reporter reaction was, at best, mixed.
Lagerfeld relayed that the ball, featured in yesterday's New York Times Style Magazine, is faux leather/rawhide and smells faintly of Chanel No. 5.
Goodell also announced that, since each ball will cost the league $1,899, the fine for throwing a ball into the stands after a touchdown will be raised to $10,000.
