Anyone Think These Jerseys Would Offend Anyone?

don't see anything wrong with them. That stylized eagle never was accosiated with anything too bad.

Don't anyone take this the wrong way when I say it, but I've been intested in learning more about the Swastica (since it was mentioned earlier) I heard a few years ago that it was a religious symbol beofre Hitler got his hands on it. Might be interesting to learn what it meant before...not what it meant to the Nazis, but before they turned in into a symbol of hatred

(there is a town somewhere that was being pressured to change there name from Swastika, but they wouldn't becasue the town was named long before WWII)

The Swastika was a symbol used by North American native peoples (or is that no longer politically correct?)

It was made up of feathers for the lines.

Swastika, Alberta changed its name to (really--this is true) Gayford.

There is a Swastika, Ontario.

Check out its association with pre Nazi sports teams-

swastikas were once not nazi

Check out the swastika links on the left.

But the NAzi association basically killed its use for just about anything else.

that eagle shouldnt be a problem I worked as a cook/bartender at the local german club and society and last year I designed them new staff shirts but when me and the manager had a fight and she decided to fire me and the design left with me... fyi she got canned shortly after becuase she ran that place into the ground... but heres my design... not trying to hijack the thread jus showing that the eagle is still part of ther german culture... and yes it on the german hockey jerseys... ps this was LONG before my illustrator days

The German Uni I want is the one they wore in the Canada Cup--they only appeared in one--and when I first saw them I didn't have the cash--and they sold out very quickly. Unfortunately I have been unable to find a picture of them anywhere on the net.

This tells you how preception is everything some times.

Just think if the Nazis made their symbol a smiley face, we would all be offend when we seem them today.

Just like the afore mentioned mustache if Hiter had a goatee, people would not want to wear goatees.

Quite incredible actually these demented jerks gave everything they used a bad name.
