    I can appreciate James wanting to pay tribute to his dad who was a great role model for him but does Fila or James really think that people are going to buy Thomas Reynolds signature clothing? I mean, c'mon, James Blake's name can probably sell tennis clothing but Thomas Reynolds will probably sell 1/10 as much. What are they thinking? Blake is also doing a benefit for his father's cancer fund with Roddick but at $250 a ticket, I think I will take a pass.

    James Blake might have been able to sell a signature line a while back before his ranking started sinking like a brick to the bottom of the ocean, but for Fila to give him a line now makes me wonder what they are thinking, and to name it what they did is really curious.

    Considering in 6 years I have seen maybe 2 people with a Fila shirt on the courts I doubt the sales could go any lower.

    It's too bad - Fila stuff is good quality.

    Maybe Fila is to classy and quality for the Louisiana people to handle.

    I think it has more to do with it being associated more often with bumbling basketball players and hip-hop musicians.
