Pro Principles Feature: An American Perspective Pt. 2 – Kuruption Ain’t Nothing New

Listening to music seems to create a productive environment when looking through articles. Incidentally, Kurupt’s album, Kuruption, was banging through the speakers when researching articles about Sep Batter and alleged Kuruption.  The result, c = k.

Sep Batter is FIFA’s head honcho/Kapo/Don. The articles detail the investigation into a questionable fund transfer between FIFA’ s kurrent president Sepp Blatter and this French guy Michel Platini who is looking to replace Sepp Blatter as president of FIFA.

THE RUNDOWN: In 2011, Blatter authorized a payment to Platini for work duties karried out in previous years while Platini worked under Sepp Blatter (from 98-02). Platini claims the 2 million Swiss francs payment was for unpaid salary. On October 8th  2015, both Blatter and Platini were placed on a 90-day suspension after the Swiss government initiated an investigation. Neither one plans to resign from their kurrent positions as high-level soccer officials. Falsification of documents and accounts regarding the 2mill fund transfer has also been alleged.

In my opinion, which is in no way an indictment of their actions, both guys look like two kurupt white dudes; (A krude description, based on pictures I saw). These individuals are in the perfect position to get over on FIFA and earn illicit income. A position where kash flow is high and it seems, accountability is low. In general I kould kare less how an individual earns money, illegal or legal. But I kan’t agree with actions that affect the integrity of the game. Soccer’s global impression breeds kuruption. There are “well known” kountries willing to pay for hosting major events. On the other end of the spectrum, lesser know kountries willing to pay for exposure and recognition.


  • I was listening to Kurupt when I started this article.
  • Kuruption ain’t new

Title: When nostalgia hurts your pockets

These days it’s easy to relive your younger years through your sneaker collection. They remind you of where you were or a game you played in with some heat on the court. In my opinion Nike has cornered the market by rapidly releasing “retro” shoes. Trying to keep up with al the heat gets hard for me, cause I ain’t got it like that, yet.

This week I came across an article on written by some dude called Juanofakind. The article is entitled – Jordan Brand Is Making Nostalgia An Expensive Commodity. He goes on to talk about how he felt when he first saw the Air Jordan 17

That is a classic shoe. I can remember going to my cousin’s house, and he opened up the silver case to show me what he had. It was like looking at some top secret FBI type stuff.

However, for the average Joe, it’s a little taxing to include these memorable shoes in your collection. Jordans have already gone up to 180-90. A new pair foams (see Pro Principles Oct Shoe Calendar) and the soon be released Air Jordan 17 are hitting for 250 + tax. Keep it a buck; it’s hard to justify the buy.

Are the 17s re-releasing with the silver briefcase?

How do you feel about the high prices?

Jordan is really taxing the consumer, but ill probably buy a few pairs soon
