Bulls**t. That team should never wear anything that says or references Brooklyn. Ever.

Um...why?

As a fan, I love this. Though they sorta look like the Royals here, I love the look of it. And I don't mind embracing the Brooklyn history at all. My grandfather's stories about growing up in Brooklyn and watching the Dodgers is what made me a Dodger fan in the first place, so I think it's awesome that they're honoring that past.

I would agree. That would be like the Baltimore Ravens wearing Browns throwbacks. Both teams highly offended their former home and fans and should just leave well enough alone and not stoke the fires. What a cheap ploy by the Dodgers to try to cash in and make a buck off thier shameful history.

Look, I'll fully admit it, I'm no Walter O' Malley fan either, fellas. If I had my way, the Dodgers would still be in Brooklyn. But it is what it is - they're in Los Angeles now and have been for 52, going on 53, years. It isn't the current management's fault that they're not in Brooklyn, so there's no point in faulting the team for trying to honor their past in Brooklyn. At least they still seem to give a dang about it, which can't be said for a few franchises in the same predicament.

EDIT: Oh wow, my 1,000th post was spent defending my Dodgers. Schaweet! :P

The Ravens aren't considered the same franchise as the Browns. When they moved the history and records stayed in Cleveland, when the Dodgers left the history left with them. Has everyone forgot when the Texas Rangers wore Washington Senators throwbacks? same thing...

Are people really still that butt hurt over something that happened over 50 years ago?

I wonder why New Yorkers despised the O'Malley and the Dodgers so much for leaving, yet the Giants fans in NY were relatively fine and seemed to continue to follow their team.

No one cared about the Giants in NY. The Dodgers were beloved. There many books written about the Dodgers and Brooklyn and why that team meant so much to those people.

Must run in the family, since you hold a grudge against the Browns...
