    Loved Puma sportswear from when I was a teenager.
    A good connection I believe between the Tigers and Puma.

    Poofters under medical attention was what PUMA stood for when I was at primary school (being taught how to handball by Sheeds). I always thought Adi Dassler was the better of the Herzogenaurach brothers.

    It is a great achievement.
    Adidas and Puma are my two favourite sports brands.
    I visited the Adidas flagship store in Paris and purchased a customised item.
    Puma has the potential to eclipse Adidas as the world's best sports apparel brand.
    I never liked BLK and Nike is inferior.
    Italian design is the best in the world (think Lamborghini, Maserati in automobiles, Armani in apparel) and Puma although of German origin is a major player in Italy.
    A tremendous achievement.

    In terms of sales, Puma ($3b) and Adidas ($18b) combined ($21b) don't come close to Nike ($30b) (Statista, 2015).

    They've got a lot of work to do before they eclipse Adidas, old Sash. In fact, they've got some work to do before they're even 3rd on the list of worldwide sales.
    VF Corp and Under Armour are also above Puma.

    Toyota outsells Maserati Vinesy but the design of a Maserati is something to see.
    Personally, I believe PUMA (and to a lesser extent Adidas) design is better than Nike.
    It is personal taste.
    Either way, RFC's tie-up with PUMA is a great achievement for all concerned, and as TBR acknowledges, great work by our administration.
