    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!.........

    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.....

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