You forgot about - or more likely didn't hear because you're far away from the US, but Young's Nike deal was over a mil - so they definitely took a bath and probably are a little gun shy. I can hear the Nike internal debate: "big guys serving bombs indoors at the end of the yr when the guys who've been on Tour all year are excited to start their off season. We'll wait and see what he does in January."
