    Like someone said, I think it was a crappy knock-off jersey.

    I never guessed that someone would just buy a cheap jersey and then still wear it knowing the colors are off so badly.

    Thanks for such a quick response.
    To be fair to that fan (and others who happen to be in the same spot), even though some of the fakes do look considerably bluer than the real jerseys, I think it was exaggerated a bit by the video feed.
    Purple, especially the shade that the Vikings wear, is very hard to reproduce digitally.
    This is one of the reasons that the Vikings looked blue on TV for many, many years.
    It is only recently that they have begun adding color filters to the Vikings broadcasts to enhance/adjust the television image so that the purple you see on TV looks closer to what it does in person.
    Similar technology BTW is used to paint the first down line on the field.
    That filter, however, is fairly limited to the specific shade of purple the Vikings wear, and some (not all) of the fakes are off enough that the filter doesn't adjust them.

    So I doubt that in person that guy's jersey looks as badly off as it does in that shot.
    You can still definately tell that soe of them are bluer than they should be, but I have not seen one before that is just straight up wrong like that one is...

    FYI, I buy a fake each year... but the secret is to find a seller you can trust.
    Speaking of which ... do you have a trusted seller? I have an away jersey that is fairly solid, but I am hesitant to buy a home jersey with all that purple and get stuck with an off-color one.
