    So, apparently, all the talks about bad packages, disappointed forum members and lousy sneakers finally got back at Jordan Brand. Apparently, things are notall honky dory over there. The Jordan brand has a 10.8 percent share of the overall US shoe market, which makes it the second biggest brand in the country andmore than twice the size of adidas' share. Three out of every four pairs of basketball shoes sold in this country are Jordan, while 86.5 percent of allbasketball shoes sold over $100 are Jordan. It's hard to say how much Jordan has reaped personally, but 2009 will be remembered as the year MJ was inductedinto the Hall of Fame and the year that his Nike [NKE 54.99 -0.43 (-0.78%) ] brand, Jordan, topped $1 billion in annual revenue for the first time. Itappropriately comes 23 years after Nike reached $1 billion in revenue for the first time. http://www.cnbc.com/id/32798277?__source=RSS*blog*&par=RSS

    the fail in this post is [​IMG]

    -the double negative(and the missing ' in there + bolding it to add emphasis to it doesn't help anything at all)
    -it seems as if you're laughing at his title line while he's being sarcastic, I'm guessing to point out that while everyone is complaining aboutthe brand they have a stranglehold on the general public they're selling to...
    -your double negative actually implies you would actually agree they ARE going out of business somewhat...and would have no reason to be laughing

    reading is fundamental, they didn't just say that in school for nothing.

    any time, I see what you did there and understand, you gotta work with some people sometimes though.

    I was looking at that in our newspaper here today they had an article talking about the Jordan Brand figures and thought about making a similar post, but Ifigured I'd be wasting my time.

    Sure they will...
    NT and "sneakerhead consensus" is not the measuring stick for real life popularity
    I've said this b4 and I'll say it again
    Sneaker Elitism FTL
    While NTrs complain about quality, the interested consumer is out buying True Flights and knocking your Grail Status Lebron 6s for being ugly
    It wont stop anytime soon.

    RELAX your lil happy @%% down. 'DOESNT NOT' is a very simple mistake. Nothing 'FAIILLLL' about that.

    well technically speaking you still failed with the "mistake" itself, how you put it in caps like you wanna stress it and mess up,that's the part you wanna get right if anything, I'm just saying.

    and for the record I'm relaxed, "thank you thank you thank you, you're far too kind" I appreciate you showing concern but I'm fine, youare a funny character from what I've seen you post so far I'm gonna leave you some kudos.
    I'm not taking shots or anything, no need to go down that path so don't think that, I'm done with the post

    How does that equate to going out of business? 1 billion dollars in revenue doesn't sound like Jordan brand is about to fold.................

    Sarcasm doesn't translate very well on a message board.
