As if the Premier League wasn't already an absolute mockery...

Don't like it, what's wrong with a plain white ball, or possibly an orange coloured ball should it snow.

The Premier League isn't an absolute mockery.

The ball is hideous though. I'd standardise ball design for all professional leagues, I reckon, so they all had to look like an adidas Telstar.

That thing is going to curve like a bitch, there'll be some wonder goals this season.

I thought it was designed to avoid that.

It looks weird but frankly, I don't give a damn.

I don't know what Nike were thinking. It seems to be a problem not exclusive to the Premier League as even the Spanish and Italian leagues are all using the same design. Hideous Ball!

Spiderman seems to have had a say in the design.

Really plain white ball....fail to realize we are in 2015 nothing plain anymore. Everything is out there to be seen in this new millennium.

Don't they usually bring out a multi-colour ball when the dark nights set in?

Can't remember starting the season with a monstrosity like that before.

A football doesn't look the way I want it to? Rabble, rabble, rabble! RABBLE!

Our collective priorities are really fucked. I imagine there have been more offensive homophobic/sexist reactions to this football than any (ostensible) outrage caused by the design itself.
