I noticed during the National Stadium Championship that Patrick Allen had both a Storm patch (right breast side) and Hammer patch (left breast side) on his shirt. How could that be? I didn't think those companies would allow a player to be sponsored by a competitor. Very strange.

If he is free lance, which means he isn't signed to an exclusive deal with anyone, there isn't much they can do about it. I'm not sure he has a deal with anyone right now. It was kind of weird to see since they aren't even under the same main company. He's using a Hammer Razr on the Cheetah and a Storm T-Road Solid on the Shark. Bill O'Neil was using two companies as well, Ebonite and Hammer, but Ebonite owns Hammer. I'know he was using Ebonite on Cheetah, but not sure which ball, and Hammer on Shark, again not sure which ball.

According to the announcer, P.A. was using a Hammer Blue Vibe on the right, Cheetah pattern and a Storm Rapid Fire on the left, Shark pattern.

I guessed I just assumed - incorrectly - that if they're wearing a patch from a company, then they are sponsored by that company. Now I know better.

PA started with a Hammer Rayzr on Cheetah and a Storm T-Road Solid on Shark. He switched to the Vibe on Cheetah and Rapid Fire on Shark later on. I'm not sure what Bill O'Neill was using, but I'm pretty sure he was using a Hammer The Sauce on Shark. There is an interesting story about PA using Storm on Storm's website in Chris Schlemer's report on the Shark Championship.

Well, technically they are sponsored by that company, but in PA's case, that sponsorship is for that day (or week) only.

As the day went on PA did change balls, and it worked through the first three games. Not quite as well in the last game but he won four straight games for the title. That 8-10 by WRW, just wow is all I can say.
