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.

Your kidding right?

If not my first thought was "give me a f*cking break!"

That's just WRONG.

Sounds like an excellent idea to me. Well worth importing here to the UK - the fragrance would freshen the smell of pies and prawn sandwiches eaten by our pikey football fans.
Imagine what one of those would fetch on eBay.

I don't like sports. I went to a football game and had a great time, but I hate all the media mishegoss that goes along with it. I hate that the Simpsons is always the first thing to be pre-empted for anything sports related.
