Players in the "wrong" uniforms


Recommended Posts

If Matt Holliday stays with St. Louis for a long time, this will become an odd sight.

An odd sight, indeed. It's not often you see a bonafide major league superstar in A's gear. :rolleyes:

I didn't check all 47 pages, so this may already be posted, but here's one I've never seen before today. In researching it, it looks like Trottier had dual citizenship and went from playing with Canada in the '81 Canada cup, to playing for the U.S. in the '84 Canada cup. I know Brett Hull often gets accused of being traitorous, but it seems like Trottier's "offense" is even worse.

I know people that still don't like Trottier because of that.

Some of them cheered against Pittsburgh when Trottier was a Penguin.

What's the story behind this? Did he switch just because he wanted to or did he not make the Canadian team?

I wonder how many of those they are selling.

I saw them in stores on Saturday. Didn't look like anyone was rushing to buy them. I'm half surprised that none of these johnny-come-lately protesters aren't boycotting the stores selling the jerseys. Other than just to make a statement about supporting the man, there's no real reason to buy his jersey, since he'll be suspended for at least the first two games, and there's no guarantee he'll play much after that (and that's assuming he keeps to the promises he's made about being reformed.) I think many are taking the "wait and see" approach.

EDIT: not sure if it's possible, but the team could make themselves look a little better by donating money from Vick merchandise to the humane society. That still wouldn't get the nutjob picketers to buy any, but at least the team wouldn't look like it's just doing this to sell some jerseys.

I do recall a huge rant he had while he was with the Sens after a game against the Maple Leafs during the 2000 playoffs.

Was that after he two-handed and broke Yanic Perreault's arm for absolutely no reason? That may have been during the regular season

Don Beaupre...there's a name I never thought I'd see again...

I know I have that Upper Deck Leafs card though...I wish I had a scanner, because I'm unemployed and after I take my CPA exam on Wednesday I'd love to go through my old hockey card drawer and share some of what I find...

Now I'll probably just do that and withhold it.
