OK let my preface what I'm about to present here by saying I am on the fence with the entire Illuminati / secret societies and how prevalent they are in today's society. Most of the time, I believe people are reading too much into things, but on rare occasions I see symbols being blatantly put out in the open for people to see.

WIth that being said, I present to you this image from Nike's Blog coverage of their new uniform design for Oregon in 2012's Rose Bowl.

OK. Now here is the famous all seeing eye/third eye within the pyramid.

Now when I first saw this image the symbolism stuck out immediately. The player's hands are forming a pyramid and the Oregon "O" is placed towards the base of the pyramid just like it is in the All Seeing Eye.

Some may argue that the player is simply forming the Oregon O hand symbol with the pattern in his gloves as shown here.

Or to a lesser extent here.

I don't know. Maybe I am reading too much into it, but the first picture to me seems symbolic and as to what the message that is being portrayed is beyond me.

ATS sound off, what's your opinion?

The first picture looks blatant... the others.. well that could mean anything...

With rappers i can see how they jump on the bandwagon with the whole illuminati conspiracy but with huge companies like nike.. Would they really want to associate themselves with a supposedly evil secret society, for publicity or to follow popular culture?

The more of this stuff i see, the more it convinces me these guys really exist...


edit to add.. i dont know much about American football... but after reading the above comment, have to ask is this the symbol that usually represents that team?

That is definitely symbolism, looks like the All-Seeing Eye.

I played football and know that is how wide receivers are taught to catch the football with the diamond pattern. That is simply what the black football player is doing in the picture. Now as for the ad that is a different story.

Well, in looking at where this came from, I can assume the feeling behind the symbolism *I* am seeing isn't sincere. Either someone had a sick, warped sense of humor or is just dumb as a box of rocks and this is the loudest statement to the ignorance of history I've yet to ever see.



No one sees any passing resemblance to that first image? I actually had to do a double take to realize that was NOT a Swastika and actually a number, instead. It's pointed too far too far to the right and it's got a line too many. Add the spread wings the hands represent and the wider wings spread out behind that right his own head sitting atop? Well.... My first impression really was 'What does a weird Nazi image have to do with the headline?" Hmm... Maybe it's just one of those pictures where everyone sees something different.

The first image is indeed Phil Knight's, (co-founder of Nike), attempt to show his illiminati buddies where he went to school and how much pull he has over the global economy.

The last images are the symbol the Eugene police have taught the players of the University of Oregon to display at all traffic stops. This allows the police to see plainly that the suspect (errr. subject) is not 1.packing heat or 2.possesing large amounts of narcotics.

JZ did it, and it looked cool and got lots of attention.
Maybe the Illuminati has infiltrated the untouched sanctity of College Ball, maybe not.

Either way, what do you plan to do about it?

The new Pro Combat gloves, that when together make the teams logo,

neilnoonan.net...

Found another picture showing this uniform which doesnt look so sinister... Also the gloves are apparently designed to form the teams logo when put together..

Not to take away that the first nike picture does look like an eye in a pyramid..

The eye, 7 wings the helmet has the owl beak and looks like the stylized owl. The black markings on the gloves are an owl also.

Looks like all of Nike's gloves in this line feature the logo of the team...

So yeah, I think in this case you're reading too much into it.

My eyes saw what your eyes saw. Did the double take too. Some idiot graphic artist who didn't study history....or did


ETA: to clarify...I know nothing of sports. So this was an eyeball opinion only.

Yes I see what you're saying, but what I am taking about is the smaller Oregon O within the opening of the players hands which form a pyramid shape to me.

I see the Oregon O that the glove forms, but I'm talking about the O in the background that's on the uniform itself in the advert.

Wow. I did not even see that until you brought it up. I guess it's all up to interpretation. Some people don't see anything, while others see owls, pyramids, eyes, etc etc.

Too close for comfort.

Even after my double take on the number 24...my overall impression was the whole graphic appeared very militaristic to me.

Good Catch


Both arms in the OP have graphics on them....the left looks like symbols, the right I can't make out good enough.

Can someone enlarge the arms and post them please.

Well for starters, try to decipher the meaning of the image they're portraying. Try to see what the message is if any.
