Nike Appears Implicated in FIFA Crackdown, Reports

Beaverton-based sportswear giant Nike appears implicated in the U.S. Department of Justice sting of alleged corruption in FIFA, according to reports in The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg Business.

The DOJ indictment of top officials in FIFA, the world soccer governing body, alleges bribery involving "a multinational sportswear company headquartered in the United States" to get a deal to make uniforms for Brazil's national soccer team.

Both news organizations note that deal matches a sponsorship agreement Nike struck with the Brazilian team in 1996.

Nike is not named in the federal indictment. Instead, the indictment says a U.S. company paid a Brazilian official $40 million in bribes to secure a $160 million contract.

Nike officials issued a statement today to Bloomberg Business: "Nike believes in ethical and fair play in both business and sport and strongly opposes any form of manipulation or bribery. We have been cooperating, and will continue to cooperate, with the authorities.”

Nine FIFA officials were indicted early this morning by U.S. officials, as Swiss police arrested top soccer leadership in a hotel in Zurich.

Video: Kitzhaber Whistleblower Michael Rodgers Explains Why He Leaked Emails

Today's WW cover story is about Michael Rodgers, a high-level state of Oregon manager who refused a request to delete former Gov. John Kitzhaber's emails from state servers—and later, after he grew concerned about state officials' response to that request, made a copy of the emails and passed them along to WW.

Rodgers initially asked WW to keep his identity confidential, but he has now decided to go public and talk about why he leaked the emails.

Rodgers led a team of more than 200 in the Oregon Department of Administrative Services data center before he was placed on paid leave 14 weeks ago. He says he believed that Kitzhaber's emails stored on state servers were public records and could not legally be deleted.

On Monday, Rodgers sat down in front of a WW video camera and answered questions about his decisions.

Here are excerpts from that interview:
