that $13.6m is not accurate, that's what it would be a full retail, which we all know is not what they cost to produce or sold for, we are talking maybe $500k in production cost and $2-4m in street value

Counterfeiters have also done more business as the price of jerseys has risen. A knockoff of a stitched official Nike jersey that retails for $135 sells on these sites for as little as $20 and often includes free air shipping from Asia that allows a consumer to have the package in eight to 10 days. Nike is in the first year of supplying jerseys to the NFL. Counterfeiters also offer variations of products that licensees don't, such as camouflage jerseys with team logos on them.


Is it just me or does this entire paragraph prove that the NFL just doesn't get it.

yeah, if they sold their product at a reasonable price, no one would bother with the counterfeit merch, even the nicest Jersesy you buy from the team store have a manufacturing total cost of $10 yet sell for $250, seems legit right?

I think the NFL has a running contest with Disney to see who can be the most aggressive about protecting their trademarks.

Agreed.

I actually got on the jersey trend before it became popular to wear for fashion... In my late teens, I had all kinds of football jerseys. Right around 2002 or so, they were going for $60 a pop. Once they switched over to the "NFL Equipment" crap, it all went downhill. I haven't bought an NFL jersey since.

I just think it's ridiculous that they kept upping the price and the last couple I had bought were not worth what I paid for them, so I just quite buying them. Now, I do want a Smitty jersey before he retires and a Cam jersey as well (maybe a Keek down the road), but I just haven't felt the need to blow $200+ on one. There are a lot of other things I can do with that money.

Even if I did buy a jersey (I'm not because of how insane the prices have become, which is a shame because I used to love buying them) I would never ever buy a jersey that the casual observer is going to look at and read as Koochly.


I'm sorry but I'm just not.

Ha I will say the single thing that I have bought of official NFL merch that has received more praise from other fans and praise in general for just being cool was the 2009 special hoodie that was speckled from blue to black, thing is pretty freaking awesome looking, and since I have switch to more things like shirts and hoodies that are more practical for every day use instead of a Jersey that feels out of place outside of football season.

if I'm going to dup $50-$100 on merch I'm going to wear that poo

I used to rock some dope ones back in the day. Old school Olajuwan, Derrick Coleman, and a Abdul-Rauf were in full rotation. Had a powder blue Eddie George Oiler jersey and a purple Moon Viking one. Damn those were the days. I can't afford that poo now.
