    Yeah it is. When I bought it back in '15... I didn't expect AB to lose his mind the way he has. I honestly thought he was going to be a Steeler for life.

    That’s what I did but you can be pretty limited in selection.

    For Christmas I wanted to buy a Rocky Bleier throwback. They weren’t available. So I reluctantly bought a Chinese Knockoff. 2 weeks later the NFL site started selling Rocky throwback jerseys. Pissed me off. I still bought an NFL one and gave it to my wife. I gave the knock off to my secretary. I made 2 women happy at the same time. Probably a once in a lifetime event.

    Well, another man wearing another man's jersey is kinda, you know. You know anyway. Not that there's anything wrong with it but, you know.

    Buy the authentic jersey of your favorite players and put your own name on the back. That's what I would do.

    This is why I refrain from buying pro jerseys. I have a Hines Ward Jersey and that's it. I only bought it after it became apparent he was going to retire a Steeler.

    Does anyone on here remember the NFL jerseys and other items from Sears Roebuck Catalog?? My parents and grandma nana bought me all this stuff.....St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers.....every birthday and Christmas was from this catalog....I told them at a very young age to not go anywhere else. I love the NFL today as much as I did as a kid. College Football is great, but I sure like pro football. Enjoy......

    Eh, I’m half and half in your thought. I’m an old fogy. No chance in hell I’d be wearing say a JuJu Jersey. I think that would be creepy. Some old guy wearing a kids jersey. But I have a Lambert throwback. That’s an old fogy wearing an old fogy’s jersey. In my mind, that’s ok.

    This fall I suspect a few people will be throwing back their AB jerseys?

    The Steelers should set up recycling bins at the stadium for Bell and Brown jerseys, then donate them to the homeless.

    I don't, it's not my original idea. When the 1995 Jags used their #1 expansion draft pick on Steve Beuerlein and he was worthless, a radio station in Jax collected his jerseys from fans and gave them out to the homeless. Years later you could still see tattered Beuerlein jerseys being worn on the streets. I was dovetailing off their idea.;+)

    Because they are too cheap to buy a home and pay taxes like the rest of us dumb asses?
