Ryan Braun

Dropped by Nike

Over Steroid Use

Disgraced Milwaukee Brewers left fielder and admitted steroid user Ryan Braun has just been dropped by his biggest sponsor ... Nike.

A rep for Nike confirmed the athletic company no longer has a relationship with Braun, who has been suspended for the rest of the 2013 season over his admitted steroid use. The Nike rep wouldn't comment any further.

It's unclear how much Braun's Nike deal was worth exactly, but safe bet ... it's a lot.

Nike's just the latest company to drop Braun over PED allegations -- a list that includes Muscle Milk, and Wisconsin-based Kwik Trip convenience stores.

I see nothing wrong with people using steroids. Bodybuilders do it all the time, so why can't professional athletes do it?

Athletes wear Nike because they wear Nike, and the Nikes the shoes they wear are nowhere near off the shelf shoes. Other people wear Nike because they want to be cool. They should start having rappers advertise them.

You should check your references... I don't think he's "an admitted steroid user". He admitted making some mistakes and bad choices.

I guess breaking up a family with dozens of infidelities is acceptable for Nike but some PED's is taboo. SMH

Did Nike really think I was going to run out and buy a pair if shoes because this guy endorsed the Nike brand? Nike and all these other companies waste millions of dollars every year with endorsements, what kind of fool runs out to buy the shoes just because some clown in sports say they are good? It's all a big scam, a sucker is born every minute.

Nice photo TMZ! After Lance Armstrong and Jose Canseco, haven't these athletes learned nothing? Cheaters never win.
