NEVER EVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE, buy a jersey of an active player. If you do, that risk is on you.

And you can still wear the jersey if it's a different number. All the actual fans will know.

Reminds me of my younger brother, who went to Indiana University, and was gifted a Redskins jersey by a graduating senior in his fraternity when my bro was a freshman. It was a Heath Shuler jersey.

When the Skins played at the Colts a year or two later, my brother wore the jersey to the Hoosier Dome, but had put a piece of tape over the name Shuler, and wrote in big block letters CONWAY. Conway was our punter at the time, but wearing #5. My bro got compliments from Skins and Colts fans alike throughout that game.

That was genius for multiple reasons.

Idk. I think the jersey automatically goes retro at one point. Like Sean Taylors 36.

Yes it's a while ago but I bought 4 jerseys (not at the same time!). Moss, Portis, Arrington and Bailey. Within 12 months of buying their jersey each one was gone! I vowed I would never buy another jersey for a current player, and since I have only bought an ST Pro Bowl jersey after he died (I had to after that hit on Moorman LOL). I have no desire to jinx the team! :)

[quote=punch it in;1283354]Agreed. Maybe a shoulder or something but not an achilles. Does he crawl from his car to the locker room to the field on day one?

I still wear my Portis jersey.

If I ever buy another it will be Taylor, Monk or Green.


Son has a Kerrigan and daughter has an Alex Smith...they're both "collector's items" starting this year. Not a big deal, kids grow anyways.

Son has a McLaurin and a Chase shirt, both Summo designs. That's the way to go for current player stuff. :biggthump

Depends if the bench is bolted to the floor or not?

Definitely but that's over 1/4 of a second higher than the qualifying time. Knocking that off your time for an athlete already in peak physical shape is difficult. I can't help wondering if he did it with an eye on actually qualifying, or just a publicity stunt. Strikes me as reminiscent of TO...

He said he wanted to pursue the Olympics and I think he did, but being fast and training as a sprinter are two different worlds, as he just learned.

The actual sprinters likely got really motivated to not get beat by a football player thinking he could just show up and beat them.

Hopefully he's a humble guy.

Our guy chose a weird number for a LB in Cleveland.
