    Jersey or no jersey ?

    Just wondering what you guys think about fans wearing NFL jerseys, for instance to sports bars ? Is it acceptable ? Is there an age cut-off ? Should it be done ? Should grown men not wear a jersey with someone else's name on it ? Just wondering... I usually just have a purple Vikings t-shirt or sweatshirt and a Vikes baseball cap when I go to the local sports bar, but I have thinking I might need to break out a jersey. The angel on the one shoulders says don't do it, you are too old. The devil on the other shoulder says, go for it.

    I agree, I think they're perfectly fine, there are differing opinions on it though.

    Wear one!
    I don't think anybody would think anything negative if you did.
    And if they do, then F' em, they're probably idiots anyways.

    Re: Jersey or no jersey ?

    I am 30-years-old and have worn a Vikes jersey on game day almost 100 percent of the time for the last 12 seasons. Hell, I even wear White for the days where we will wear White and wear Purple for the others (most of the time, sometimes I pimp the Peterson Pro Bowl jersey) and I see no problems with it.
    My two-year-old daughter also wears her "team jersey" (as she calls it) almost daily during the football season (a purple Adrian Peterson jersey).
    So no, I don't see any age restrictions.

    Re: Jersey or no jersey ?

    Kewl. I was just wondering. I am 43, btw, and have been wearing different Vikings jerseys for years. I even wore one during our 41-0 drubbing vs. NY about 6 years ago and was getting all kinds of crap from d****e Dallas fans down here. I just wanted to show them for once what a real fan looks like, who stays to the end, no matter what happens. They probably thought it was an optical illusion, too.

    This guy got into a big discussion with me once about this in a bar. He was like "I can't believe you would put some other dude's name on your back". And I was like, "dude, you are taking this way to seriously"...

    BTW, what about those fans in the Dome with the green "4" jersey ? What is up with that. I am still trying to figure it out.

    I think it means I am a Packer fan but I still respect Favre.

    I'm 57 and wear jerseys to the games. I don't worship the player whos name is on the jersey. I see it as supporting my team.

    My true heroes soldiers and such. Football is just show biz. and entertainment.

    But I'm man enough to wear whatever I want. I choose to support my team by wearing the colors.

    If some guy in a bar don't like it. I'll hit him with my walker!

    BTW I know Jim Rome is against it. But all you have to do is look at him to see why. Besides, I'll bet he's wearing that Jim Everett jersey, at home, on weekends.

    That is good stuff.
    ;D ;D

    BTW, MN Favre jersey = nr. 1 jersey in America now.

    I heard this one guy on sports radio once say, "You know what, women will ridicule guys for wearing a numbered jersey, as if it is out of bounds, but then when they go to a tennis match, they will get a matching white outfit and shoes to 'go with it', to match their favorite player".

    So true.

    This is all new news to me...weird...I never heard of such problems with wearing jerseys.

    Maybe it has to do with location ???
