    Vikings 50th Anniversary Patches

    Just found out that, in its never ending search for more of the fans' money, the NFL has announced that commemorative patches will no longer be for sale as loose items. They can only be purchased when attached to official jerseys.

    I have an 80's Starter jacket covered with Viking patches and was looking forward to adding this one. Thanks NFL for sucking the joy out of every fan activity.

    Those are nice, I picked one up plus they have 40th anniversary patches on eBay for only $3.99 so I snagged one of those too.

    I've got a 40th patch I'm gonna stick on my Randle Jersey, and I'll buy some 50th's from my guy once he gets them for some of my other jerseys

    God bless the NFL... Goodell will need to buy a new bank to house all the extra money that the league wants to pull in - maybe player fines will be raised by the rate of inflation this year for good measure as well :laugh:
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Re:Vikings 50th Anniversary Patches

    Meh, people complain about player fines not being much, when realistically, its pretty on-par

    Lets say a player gets a 10K fine, for a guy making 3 mil a year, that's 0.33% of his salary.

    Lets say I make 40K a year, thats like fining me $130. Since I don't play football, lets use real-world fines.

    Speeding ticket, anywhere from $50 to $1000(I went 121km/h in a 90 zone, I got a $210 ticket)

    Parking ticket: $10

    jaywalking: $90

    urinating in public: $250

    Littering/Dumping: $50 to $500

    Spitting in public: $150

    smoking in/near a workplace: up to $500

    Seems the fines athletes pay aren't that bad compared to what we pay percentage-wise.

    Not much respect for public places there aye IBP? Remind me not to walk to close to you on city streets.
