Poll Results – How do you feel about the U.S. Olympic team uniforms being made in China?

Filed under: Poll Results

When news first broke that U.S. athletes would be wearing uniforms at the 2012 Olympic Games in London that were made in China, there was a storm of political backlash. How could the American unis be made anywhere else but the U.S.? In response, the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) as well as Ralph Lauren — the company that outsourced production to China — promised Made-In-USA unis for the 2012 Winter Games.

Since promotional apparel is a big part of this industry, I thought this would make a great poll question. On July 12, we posted this question on ASI Central as well as the social networks, with the following results: Of the 395 total votes, and overwhelming amount of users (262, 66%) were “outraged“, with the remaining votes split between “neither here nor there” and “not concerned at all“.

Here’s the complete breakdown, including chart, to the question How do you feel about the U.S. Olympic team uniforms being made in China?: (TOTAL VOTES: 395)

  • Outraged – (262 votes, 66%)
  • Neither Here Nor There – (69 votes, 18%)
  • Not Concerned At All – (64 votes, 16%)

    I like both in their own contexts, but gellraeny I prefer modern Sonic. Although, I like the pre-Unleashed modern Sonic. Once Unleashed came around they’ve been using more or less the same design since and I think it was an attempt to make the modern Sonic look slightly more like his classic self. I’m not a huge fan of his current, cutesy design.For me, the perfect Sonic design was how he appeared in the hi-res CGI cutscenes by Blur Studios in Sonic 06 (not the in-game model.)Think about this for a sec. In the 90 s, did you actually think of Sonic mainly as cute and adorable? I didn’t and I don’t know anybody who did. When I was growing up with Sonic, it was actually like I WAS growing up with him. At first, he looked more or less like this current classic Sonic being put forward by SEGA now, although some artist’s renditions had him looking pretty cocky and mean-ish, (the Sonic 2 box-art for example.)In the later 90 s with Sonic Jam he looked slightly older and still retained that hedgehog with attitude look and by the time Sonic Adventure came around he looked very very different (and awesome, IMO,) although his in-game model gave him a round belly whereas the official art showed the more athletic figure. Sonic Adventure 2 was the peak of Sonic’s mature look, I think, because Sonic Heroes took a gellraeny cutesier direction while still maintaing all the modern designs.It’s a shame that Sonic 06 was slammed so badly because I think the idea of what if Sonic was real? is a good direction to take. It was just the game itself that turned out poor, but it seems to have permanently discouraged SEGA ever going down that route again. Some fans may not like any form of realism in Sonic full stop and that’s ok.I personally feel kinda detached from the current modern Sonic, and choosing between it and classic Sonic is like asking me to choose between cute and cuter. To me he seems to have lost his visual look of attitude, or at least it’s not as prominent as it was before Sonic Unleashed came along.
