Check out what they're selling on NFL.com...a practice jersey. I'm not commenting on the jersey itself but isn't this a reach for the NFL?

I think they're doing that now for a lot of players. I saw the Ratstains fans getting all excited about red Joe Flacco jerseys.

I don't think they are "reaching" per say.... But just maximizing the potential for revenue as they have always done.... But if it's a "practice jersey", shouldn't it be a brighter red that qbs wear?... I've never seen Ben wear a jersey that looks like that in the past.

.... That being said, for $75, if I have enough adult beverages some night, I just may buy one because it's different...

Man, I'm terrible about ordering stuff on-line..... BTW, never, and I mean NEVER, order the "egg-erator"... It's a rip-off!......... :lol:

...If it's been made, I have it stuffed in the closet somewhere..... :?
Like an idiot that gets burned on the stove, I just keep doing it over and over again..... :lol:

I don't know what's worse, this Roethlisber maroon pseudo-Redskin jersey, or the silver/grey/whatever version of this Polamalu jersey that makes it look like Raider colors.

Looks like it was thrown in the wash with the "colors" load, and faded out..... :lol:

What is it? .... It's a rip-off!!!.... :evil:

....It is a small contraption that is "supposed" to peel hard-boiled eggs... But what it does is actually explode them all over the kitchen like a mini granade!

Well that sucks, I was going to get one...seriously. I need something that helps me clean the grill after a mean bbq. The search continues.

Yea.... Definitely DON'T waste your money..... You'd get better results using a hot rag and a wire brush.... I liked the concept, but it is just weak in performance. It hasn't cleaned my grill effectively, and I had to go back over it afterwords..... It is now sitting in the closet and collecting dust (along with the egg-erator) because it just doesn't work.

It's easy!

Have a kid, wait 14 years, and voila ... a Grill Daddy, but even better!

Sounds like a good gift to give some of my football challenged friends (i.e. Ratbird fans) :twisted:
