    Google translation from German to English.

    Der Spiegel: Adidas against Scientology
    http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/vorab/...-a-950569.html


    Football stars who advertise Adidas may not be a member of Scientology and spread the ideas of its founder L. Ron Hubbard. This is from a "Equipment Agreement" shows, the sporting goods company in 2008 with today's national player of Bayern Munich closed and which SPIEGEL. Accordingly, the professional had to assure, "to belong to any organization or association which represents the principles of L. Ron Hubbard or appropriate techniques apply or distributed." In the same paragraph Adidas also made it a condition that the player "no organization or association belongs, which is monitored by the intelligence services." Otherwise Adidas reserved the right to the to 30 Lifted immediately and June 2012 negotiated contract.

In addition, the professional had "whenever he is for any other reason in sportswear or sports-fitting casual clothing in public shows," wearing Adidas clothing - at book signings, interviews or TV recordings.

It's not about individual athletes.

    'Accordingly, the professional had to assure, "to belong to any organization or association which represents the principles of L. Ron Hubbard or appropriate techniques apply or distributed.'

    No, the professional had to assure NOT to belong to any organization tainted to by Scientology.

    A few years ago there were rumours that one of the biggest German breweries (Warsteiner) was supporting Scientology. The rumours were false, but the damage was massive. It took Warsteiner a lot of time and money to debunk this myth, so adidas is taking necessary precautions. The cult isn't very popular in Germany, nobody wants to be guilty by association.

    Germany: Der Spiegel publishing a leaked Adidas player endorsement contract revealing the forfeit clauses which would cost the unnamed Bayern Munich player his €400,000 deal: being caught taking drugs, or "belonging to any organisation or association which represents the principles of L. Ron Hubbard." Adidas: "Scientology and other such organisations are incompatible."

    The best translation I could get out of that is...

    L Ron Hubbard's Scientology is considereded doping and the athletes have to be tested to prove that they are not involved with a doping of this scandalous nature are they will be removed from playing the sport.

    Well I only said "best". I didn't perfect or accurate.

    So does this take attention off of A-Rod?

    When asked about that clause, Adidas replied: ‘Diversity and tolerance are fundamental values of the Adidas Group. Scientology and other such organisations are incompatible with this… This is a standard clause in our contracts. It’s not about individual athletes.’
