Re: I'm in Jersey heaven....

I plan on getting enough jersey's, and have them framed. Once I have enough, I think I will be able to cover at least one wall in the "Man Room".

Re: I'm in Jersey heaven....

I know how you are feeling. I was in Korea for a year in 1994-1995 and I remember asking myself should I buy knowing that they weren't the real deal or just ignore. I went with the buying cuz if it lasted good and if it didn't we knew they were fake so it didn't bother us.

Like I said, you should consider the ethical question of the sort of labor practices you are supporting with your dollars. I'm not sure what Reebok's employment practices are or what sort of conditions their workers operate under in South Korea, El Salvador, and the other areas where they get their jersey shells (I think Reebok subcontracts that work and they have a warehouse in Indianapolis where they do much of the final customization on manufactured jerseys, with other companies doing after-market customizations for NFL.com, Dicks, etc. - Stahl's and Exclusive Pro Sports primarily, with gamers produced in total in Berlin, Wisconsin). Unfortunately, in our consumer culture the product is too often decoupled from the labor (i.e. human production) necessary to create it so we (myself included) only think about getting a "good" price rather than the social implications of those dollars.

Re: I'm in Jersey heaven....

Here are some articles I found while trying to find some info myself:

Three sentenced in counterfeit jersey online scheme - Washington Business Journal:
(sounds kind of like American Gangster with counterfeit jerseys)

The Columbus Dispatch : In the land of counterfeit
(even more serious implications than I indicated above. If you don't care about Chinese workers, then maybe think about the American employees who lose out at Reebok's plant in Indiana or the tax dollars that don't go into the U.S. Treasury. Plus the other implications about who actually gets the money at the end of the line.)

I'm not going to touch on the ethical issues, all I did was buy some jersey's. As for taxex, if I would have bought them at the local Military exchange, taxes wouldn't have been paid either.

The above two links are exactly why I said I couldn't/wouldn't take orders for you guys.

They have the throwback tags and all.
Would you feel like your cheating them out of money? Or would you continue to buy..... I'm on the fence on this one.

Kind of looks like the 10th circle of jersey hell to me.

Re: I'm in Jersey heaven....

Definately don't think they are "frame" worthy. Something you don't mind spilling beer on though.

I agree I've seen these jerseys worn by people at games, etc and I certainly wouldnt wear them if they were given to me. That being said the great Matty once said that all that matters when buying a jersey is if you like it. So if thats what you like go for it, but for me no thanks. I appreciate the replica and authentic jerseys that I have to pay the $75 for. These are bad fakes IMO just look at the sleeves (arm bands). Good luck.

Re: I'm in Jersey heaven....

I saw a bunch of people wearing them at the preseason game last night. They look terrible. When has the team ever had their emblem on the shoulder? If you're going to be a fan of a team, don't disgrace them by buying a piece of garbage that doesn't even look like the actual team jersey. I know official team merchandise is more expensive, but I don't mind giving a donation to the team once in a while.

Why? I cant show my team spirt if I don't shell out 75 bucks for something "official"? Forgive me for saying this but thats DUMB! Dan Snyder is a rich man because of attitudes like that.




BTW, I wont wear that shit either but if somebody else does, thats their deal!

I like your fine print.

If someone can't afford the 75 bucks then buy a t-shirt. If they can't afford a t-shirt then how did they get into the game?

Buying one of those jerseys is like buying Adidas with four stripes from K-Mart.

People can wear whatever they want obviously, but that doesn't mean we can't make fun of them!
