first off this is a marketing gimmick by nike, they treat clubs as cash cows its all about the dollar, secondly you cant possibly say ronaldo is "the best since best" its a retarded comparsion, george best was training on less than adequate pitches by todays standards ,the playing surfaces were heavier, the nutrition side of it was pretty non existent , the boots and balls were made of thick heavy leather, tackling was permitted add in the fact best was an alcoholic.
i could go on with this but i wont bore you, simply put best was streets ahead of ronaldo..
I wouldn't agree football is played at a much higher standard now so that counter acts the arguements to do with training etc. If george best played today i have no doubts he wouldn't be as good as ronaldo or infact alot of players.
