    Is the NFL starting to reach for $$$ now?

    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?

    ours is not to wonder why just invert and multiply...

    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!.........

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

    I'll stick with the regular Steelers B&G jerseys. What the hell is an egg-erator?
