    Granted I don't have jerseys of any other NFL teams, I don't see anything wrong with wearing a jersey of another NFL team.

    Absolutely not. Just shows that if you do, you may be a fan, but you don't bleed the color of your team.

    1. If I knew posting that picture would have started all this crap I wouldn't have posted it. I have few photo of me and that was the best one I could get.

    2. My parents bought it for we when they were over in the US a few years back. I wanted to get a REDSKINS jesery however I told them IF and I mean that IF they couldn't get a Skins jesery I give a list of Alt I would like Brady being one of them.

    3. If I could but a Skins jesery I would but I always broke and can't so. Plus I don't wear it wearing games over here I have it on when I got nothing else so.

    If you still call me not a ture REDSKINS or whatever fine. I just wanted to get point out there.

    Dude, it's no longer about you.

    My favorite team has no star players at the moment so buying a jersey isn't an easy investment to make right now. Sure there are players in the NFL that I admire the hell out of; LT, Brady, Manning, etc, but I could never sport their gear. Once retired I think its ok. Although I'd never wear it anywhere while in the city of Buffalo. That's asking for trouble from strangers.

    Yes it's ok. I have a Big Ben Roethlisberger jersey and people love it.

    It does help that i like Big Ben alot.

    I was still a fan of Johnny Unitas even when he was traded to the Chargers....we didn't buy jerseys back in those days though. I don't see anything wrong with it....if you're a fan of the NFL...or a fan of a certain player.

    But it's not the jersey that makes the fan. Hell, half the people in Los Angeles wearing Chargers jerseys now were wearing silver and black back in 2002. They can alternate chargers jerseys every day of the damn week, but they're not fooling me. I remember the one eyed pirate they supported. The true Raider fans never switched, and never will. But you can meet someone and notice that they only support one team with their clothing, not knowing their history, and that they have a quick change habit. To you they would look like a diehard, but it's artificial and has no truth to it.

    I collect sports jerseys between bball football and baseball i have around 25 jerseys. I have a white black and green eagles jersey sixers jersey and phillies jersey. I do wear jerseys of other teams like hester,chad johnson,steve smith. I dont feel like any less of a philadelphia fan when i wear them.I collect jersey and i have all the philadelphia jerseys but i cant buy diffrent players in the same coler thats just stupid.Its just fine to wear any jersey you want it doesent make you less of a fan.

    here are just some of my jerseys

    If you wanna rock a reggie white jersey, go ahead....theres no shame in honoring an all time great. I would never wear a jim brown jersey or any other former great like chris collinsworth (lol).

    I wouldnt be able to wear anything other than a steelers jersey, i would just feel dirty. And it would never be a polamalu jersey, and i do own one but he made me retire it lol. But unless its a great former player or a player who passed away you really have no buisness wearing a jersey of a player you dont suport on a team you dont support.

    But you know what's funny about fans saying this stuff? Players will change Jerseys tomorrow and wouldn't give a crap what the fans had to say about it. If you're a T.O fan, you should have 3 jerseys by now. He even went from one division foe to another. I'm sure Cowboy fans hated him in Philly and now praise him because he switched jerseys. He was still an Eagle, wasn't he? Same for Randy Moss and his travels around the league.

    yeah well it doesnt matter what jersey TO has on people will buy his jersey regardless....same thing with reggie bush and formerly michael vick...once the gangster icon of the NFL. Its guys like that who people just buy their jersey whether they like football or not.

    I have a willie parker jersey, you think i would lose sleep over it if he left? you say "if your a TO fan" not a fan to be a fan of a player, im with the steelers no matter whos on the roster, players come and go but the team sticks around

    QFT... that's just really annoying... :wild:

    I follow the players from UofH through the NFL (Kolb and Avery), and if they become big-name players I'll get their jerseys.
