Alright, got two rumors floating around lately.
First of which - HK Army to be secretly building a marker?
As you can see, HK Army / PBFashion have done an AMAZING job of building their brand (amazing is an understatement). They started with just a name, then names on headbands, and they have straight up built the HK Army brand into a considerable portfolio that includes cleats, pants, gearbags, knee pads, elbow pads, jerseys.. and the most important thing is that they are SELLING them.... the gear is selling fast and the money is coming in.
Recently, HK Army hired Alex Hodge (L_x on TechPB) as an exclusive designer. Alex designs markers, if you look through his design portfolio, it's seems to focused on marker design. The rumor is that HK Army is going to be designing a marker, this rumor got considerably stronger with the hiring of Alex Hodge.
Second - PSP to outlaw padding in 2014 or 2015?
Hearing strong rumors that the PSP is pushing to outlaw jersey and pant padding in 2014 or 2015. As you may know, the PSP is 90% owned by Dave Deehan, owner of Dye. Dye recently released the "Ultralite" jerseys and pants, which didn't come with any padding whatsoever. Rumor has been that several companies have strongly protested this proposal to ban padding, and it's 50/50 whether or not it's going to be pushed into rule.
Just rumors, could be camp fire bullshit, but when it starts coming in from multiple sources, gotta put a little weight on it. Let me know what you think....
