Also its my 200th post! and it only took me 2 years.
If you haven't caught on by now then don't know what to tell you. Danny Boy did this 5 years ago with the 70 greatest Redskins crap. And in another 5 years it's going to be 80th greatest Redskins crap.

Remember the Bruce Smith scam? As soon Smith broke the sack record all this all time sack leader crap was out in the stores. If you ask me it's all a bunch of bullshit but that's the marketing departments job.To sell as much shit to the fans as they can. Milk the fans dry.

If you ever go to a game and sit in the club section you really see the marketing machine that Snyder has built. Advertising is EVERYWHERE. They even hold concerts after the game. The idea is to keep you there as long as possible so you keep spending money. I went to one game in the club section last year and I must have spent $150 that day. Simply ridicules.

You chose to spend the money. If you're going to be mad, be mad at yourself.

Do you get mad when you go to the gas station and the gas prices jump for no reason, while the companies record record profits? You could walk everywhere.

best way for the little man(danny) to get it. Is not to buy the product.

You aren't a business major are you?

They aren't "raping" you or any other fan. The reason that Snyder charges what he does for everything is that he is maximizing the amount of income for his product and there continues to be demand for everything that he sells.

He spent hundreds of millions on this team and can do whatever he wants with it. Are you upset that he has turned it into the most valuable franchise? I guess that you are also upset with the demographics of our area. I can't help you there.

I guess you would rather have the team run like Buffalo?

Re: Skins 75th anniversary patch Jersey ripoff

Just for the record so people can stop complaining, I wonder if you noticed the "Actual Style May Vary" disclaimer at the bottom of the picture. Go to NFLShop.com and you will find the new style. They DO have a pretty cool looking jersey this year, but they only show the white ones. They have a Moss replica and they also have a Campbell and Taylor replica, a Campbell and Portis "repli-thentic", and a Taylor and Campbell authentic, and for a cheaper price than Redskins.com. Just type in Redskins 75th anniversary in the search bar at NFLShop.

No. Besides, they have record profits because WE are using gas in record numbers. If you want to be mad at someone over gas prices, look at your state and the federal government who get 10 times the profit (taxes) from a gallon of gas as the oil companies, and they don't have to do a single second of work for it.

Weak argument.

Re: Skins 75th anniversary patch Jersey ripoff

Does anyone know what the "premier" 75th anniversary jersey is? It costs 99.99 as opposed to 84.99 replica. There is a 15% off thing right now if you spend over a 100. I think the 99.99 would apply.

Is the premier like the EQT jerseys? I would get one for 100, if so.

Re: Skins 75th anniversary patch Jersey ripoff

also are the jerseys out right now because they all say pre-order the item and that it ships in 6-8 weeks.

PREMIER:




REPLICA:




Just from these pictures, I notice the premier has elastic on the sleeves, is stitched instead of screen-printed and has a smaller anniversary patch (is that more accurate maybe?) Also, the sizes run in numbers like the pro jerseys (48,52,54...) and the cheaper one says XL for whatever that's worth. Maybe more sizes are available in the premier?

I'd never spend that much on a jersey but if I did, I'd pay the extra for the premier.

Re: Skins 75th anniversary patch Jersey ripoff

I wonder if they'll start selling the "put your own name and number on the back" jerseys in this style...I've always wanted a Pat Fischer jersey...

Did they customize the 70th jerseys?

Re: Skins 75th anniversary patch Jersey ripoff

i think i might get the premier. I want a campbell, cooley, landry, and washington jersey. Now i need to just figure out which. I think i can justify spending $85 on it with that 15%off. I'll probably go Campbell.

I'll wait it out a week or so and think about it. Thanks for the help Buster.

Re: Skins 75th anniversary patch Jersey ripoff

I agree about paying the money for the jerseys. I bought a 70th anniversary replica of smoot when they came out and the jerseys had patches that were nice and sewn on. I bought a custom replica of the 75th anniversary and Kenny Houston's number and name on the back. The patch look like some sort of iron on. It is rediculous.

Just wait until February when the Skins aren't selling anything and those 75th Anniversary Jerseys will be half price!
