    Re: Jersey or no jersey ?

    People use the following logic, for why they think wearing a jersey is a bad idea:

    a. It just looks bad
    b. Only young men should wear jerseys (max age = 30)
    c. Wearing someone else's name is lame and is sort of like misplaced "hero worship"
    d. Jerseys are made to be worn with pads, so if you don't have pads on, it looks bad

    I actually think it is weak to spend too much time thinking about it. My only thought is do I wear my throwback Peterson jersey or some other jersey this Sunday.

    The only time jerseys should not be worn is the ones that are green and yellow.

    Re: Jersey or no jersey ?

    Speaking of jerseys....

    I'm in the market for another Vikes jersey.
    Over the years I have purchased:

    Cris Carter home purple
    Anthony Carter home purple
    Chris Hovan road white
    Daunte Culpepper road white
    Adrian Peterson pro bowl
    Chester Taylor home purple

    Anyway, I'm currently trying to decide whether to get one of someone from this years team (likely a defensive player or Harvin) or a throwback (currently leaning toward getting a throwback).

    If I get a throwback I want one of Chuck Foreman, Alan Page, Fran Tarkenton, Jim Marshall, or Joe Kapp.
    My question to all my fellow PPOers is, where's the best place to look for/buy one of these throwbacks?
    I checked nflshop but they don't allow most of the names and they would be screen printed on and I'm hoping to get a stiched throwback.
    Thanks for anyone who has any helpful advice for me!
    SKOL!

    As long as you don't tuck in it, or wear a very bad fake authentic(The ones that look blue) then I think you are good.

    Re: Jersey or no jersey ?

    Jerseys are fine.
    I just ordered a white Jared Allen jersey for myself and a purple Peterson jersey for my son.
    It they get here in time, I'll be wearing it this weekend.
    Nothing wrong with supporting a team.

    When isn't it alright to wear a jersey? (Besides weddings and funerals...)

    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'm a grown man and I'm wearing a jersey at work today.
    I'll wear that jersey at my 9am project stand-up meeting.
    I'll wear it when I go out for lunch.
    I'll wear it when I drive home.
    I'll wear it when I pick up my 5-year-old from the bus stop at 4:04 this afternoon.


    Don't be silly.
    It is *always* appropriate to wear a jersey to a sports bar.

    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.
    Does she have a cheerleader outfit?
    My 5-year-old girl is on her 2nd (outgrew the first) and also has an AD jersey, as does the 21-month old.
