If and When Can You Wear Contradictory Logos?!

Recommended Posts

This Sunday I'm going to the Green Bay Packers @ Miami Dolphins game. As most of you know, I'm a fan of both teams. They rarely play each other, so normally this isn't an issue. However, on Sunday I plan to wear a Dolphins shirt with a Packers hat or vice versa depending on what looks the best. Is this acceptable, or do I need to pick one team?

Seems unacceptable to me, especially if you're physically going to the game. I cant see this sitting well with diehard Phins fans. If I were you Id wear Dolphins gear, and just secretley hope for a tie:)

Completely unacceptable, especially in the same league.

There are extreme times when you may be able to get away with wearing different logos with teams from different sports, but these are extremely rare cases, and in most instances, you will come off as a tool.

Pick one and be done with it.

I dunno about extreme, I always wear my black Phils hat with my Flyers or Eagles jersey respectively when going to a game.

You could bring two jerseys: Packers jersey for the first half, Fins jersey for the second half. I used to do something similar for Pats games: offensive player (Brady, usually) for the first half, and defensive player (Seymour or Bruschi) for the second half.

Then again, I'm just supersitious like that.

I don't really believe in having two favorite teams in one sport, so I would say wear neither or pick one.

And it's OK to wear a hat or something for your favorite baseball team with a jersey for your favorite football team, especially if it makes regional sense.

That's all Philadelphia, though, so it's okay. If you wear stuff for both teams that are playing right there in front of you, you're a major douchebag.

You don't wear opposing team gear at the same time. Pick one or the other. I mean I use to be a Rams fan when they played in Anaheim and always rooted for them, except when they played Tampa. I've gone to many Angel games and rooted for the Halos, and yet when they played the Dodgers and I had tickets, there was no chance in HELL I'd root for the Angels! You have your team that you are a die hard for and then you can be a fan of another team, but when they play, you MUST be a man and make a choice.

Seriously, who fu*king cares? You DID pay for the ticket, so you should be able to do whatever the hell you want. If you wanna wear a Packers hat with a Phins jersey go right ahead. The universe wont slit into two and kill us all if you do. Its a frickin sport. Not a war. Do what is the most enjoyable for you. Anyone says anything, tell em to go fu*k themselves.

Well said. Not something I would ever do, but if you put up the money to go to the game, it's your call.

On a side note, I wore an LA Kings t-shirt yesterday with an Atlanta Flames hat. Not quite the same, but not quite that different.

Boy, you seem more worked up than anyone. Do bear in mind that he's going to sit next to people, and likely be heckled by fans of either team. Of course, you claim to like half of the major leagues, so...

Its called part of the sport. Who cares about the douchenozzles who heckle? Show em your a real man by ignoring them. How hard is it to see that sport is a form of entertainment and not a severe life altering set of events? Theyre defiantely fun, but good lord its nowhere as big of a deal as people make it out to be.

Of course it's your call, but you sought our opinions, so I think it's okay for us to dish out advice.

I've always thought that you wear your team's jersey to support the team, not for your own self promotion. If you are wearing both teams, you are essentially saying that you want everyone around you to notice that you are in a conundrum and have loyalties to both teams, a fact that most people simply will not care about.

If you want to be a part of one of team's fan bases for that day, pick one and go with it. Otherwise, don't wear either.

I think the best use of "double teaming" is wearing an old, beat up MLB hat of a team that is closely identified with the other sport team or the city in general. Best examples:

Yankee hat with a Giants, Rangers, or Knicks jersey

Pirate hat with a Steelers jersey

Tiger hat with Pistons, Red Wings, not Lions, they don't deserve it

Red Sox hat with Pats jersey
