Kraft and Goodell have done more to manipulate the NFL than simply deflating footballs; Kraft lobbied Belichick's complete philosophy of the game and preserved mediocre 6th round pocket QBs like Brady in the league.

Callaway clearly has the better product when it comes to their new lightweight stand bag, but I have to say Nike wins out in terms of style. Nike has revolutionized the look and Callaway has revolutionized the technology and usability.
Since bags do not perform, the golfer does, you might prefer using the Nike bag if you mix and match your clubs; and this is coming from someone who buys Callaway clubs exclusively. There is no question that I'd rather buy the bag of the manufacturer of the clubs I use, so Callaway makes sense to me.
Sadly, I feel slighted that Nike has edged Callaway out in terms of charm and the aerodynamic look. It reminds me
of when cars changed to the rounded and sexier look. Callaway has simply put good looking colors on a box and even when you compare colors you'd have to still give the edge to Nike.
