Since there's a topic every so often about them I guess we know where they stand.

I thought everyone already knew Duffs was a goner

I still wonder what will happen to the team, only Alfaro has found a new home

Well, I guess Nate Sherwood will have to full force with his rap career since his office is closing.

Serious, that would be great, Silva's so underrated these last years

I've been to the duffs site, looks totally new, they even have a fall08 line, plus some improvements, like the internation site

Louie Barletta was on the team, wonder where he'll go. I think it would be interesting to see him on adidas

How did Duffs fail?

KCK re-hash, Strombolli & Cobknobbler remakes could've saved em'. It seems anyway... The days of the overly tech shoe are behind us. Going back to the old feel would've been refreshing.

Saw this book called "EGO, the difference between telling and selling"... Some guide to building brand identities... Duffs was one of the new logos being showcased. Really bad ideas... The stuff just didn't make a whole lot of sense. Too much planning.

They'll still be around. It will just be like Dukes, where you can only find them in Southeast Asia or on closeout from Big 5.

Nothing you say will ever shut this kid up. Hes had about 10 different accounts and he always types in all caps. Just ignore him.
