The Big Ol' Counterfeit Jersey Thread

Recommended Posts

No big deal. I'm not sure if you're asking why he was doing that or why I posted it.

But I was posting the gif of him brushing his shoulders off after I made logodude look silly again. It's just like people talking :censored: about or to you, and you just brush your shoulders of. I felt super white saying that haha.

I just thought it would be be funny to go with it, like get off me bro, essentially, but funnier because it's the prez doing it.

Ohh okay. I thought it might have been in reference to something specific Obama did in relation to this subject. Im dumb haha.

Oh, and that Alex Jones/Ventura thing wasn't supposed to be anything personal and what not. I'm just more sensitive to the guys about 9/11 stuff being a New Yorker. I'll leave that out next time, as you said I was doing well enough without haha. :D

Ah no worries, at least we are on the same page about the topic. I'll leave out politics as well, time and place for everything :)

My problem is that I had to spend 50$ to learn that lesson, which is not so little for a grad student that spend all his savings on a trip to New York. My point is that legal vs. bootleg is not black vs. white as some people claim.

I don't think DYI is legal in Germany.

Then the FBI must suck at their job, because they sure don't "show" their caring about Chinese NFL jerseys, considering how many people get away with it.

The FBI understands that there are bigger battles to fight than Chinese NFL jerseys, which is why they don't pay as much attention to them as you'd like.

Remember when you said that?

Now remember when "they" did this?

LOL. Andray Blatche hit 2 three-pointers this season. Does that mean he's a great three-point shooter? You can't take isolated incidents and use them to generalize. The amount of counterfeit merchandise that slips through the cracks is FAR greater than the amount of counterfeit merchandise that actually gets people in trouble - that's why it keeps showing up. Again, the FBI realizes that there are bigger battles to fight - Chinese NFL jerseys aint one of them.

But I was posting the gif of him brushing his shoulders off after I made logodude look silly again. It's just like people talking :censored: about or to you, and you just brush your shoulders of.

LOL, wow. SOMEONE is taking this internet discussion a little to much to heart. If someone disagrees with you on an issue, that's not them "talking :censored: about or to you." But if it makes you feel like a pimp, nigga, go and brush your shoulders off.

I felt super white saying that haha.

Yeah, it came across as super white, too.

Edit: Thanks to icecap and Morgo for the support and understanding of this issue. Glad we are on the same page.

You just KNOW you are losing an argument when you have to actually THANK people for agreeing with you. Jesus Christ.

I agree that buying counterfeits is not a solution because that actually means a financial loss for the team.

I disagree - many counterfeit merchandise wearers would not buy the merchandise at "regular" price. There's no financial loss for the team. You're (wrongly) assuming that everyone who wears counterfeit merchandise would be willing to buy the product at "regular" price - nowhere near true.

However, by buying replicas you lose the money yourself. I bought myself Orlando Magic replica jersey when I was in USA 3 years ago (swingman appeared too expensive for me). After wearing it a couple of times and before washing it even once, the numbers started to peal off already, meaning I cannot really use it anymore.

And of course that kind of story is going to happen now and again, regardless of whether the product is counterfeit or "authentic." Hell, numbers peel off of jerseys that the actual players wear in games, now and then.

I didn't mean overpriced replicas/authentics. I there were no counterfeits available at all, some of those fans would spend their money on cheaper merchandise like T-shirts or caps.

So I posted this in the Grinds My Gears thread, but I decided to put this here too.

So I have a Reebok EQT Carnell Williams jersey I got a few years ago. I was really reluctant to pick one up because I heard the quality was so poor and the price is really high. If not for geting a really heavy discount at the Pro Image I worked at, I never wouldve bought one. It looks great, but I've put off washing it due to a fear of it falling apart. Well I just washed it, on the delicate cycle and in cold water, and it's completely destroyed. The screen printing on the numbers has worn off and soaked into the jersey material. So much for the quality being so much higher on the legit jerseys. This is a problem that Nike absolutely has to fix, or people will keep turning to the fakes, wrong or not.

Did that teenager buy an Indo-Edge? If so, lulz

No, that's an Edge 1.0 (notice the Rbk neck tag). Indo Edges have that obnoxious neon green stripe and no neck tag at all.

So the Cammalerri is a knockoff, and the Gionta is legit? Or are they both fake? (I can't tell because of the video quality)

You really are not the brightest. I can't believe you even showed your face back in this thread. And when you do, you quote things that have nothing to do with the discussion that I murdered like Kaylee Anthony not long ago.

Cute. You come back to try and stir the pot, did a decent job at that I may add, and provided nothing but more evidence to make yourself look foolish.

Those were 2 examples I posted, there are many more.

I never said I felt like a pimp or anything, nice job taking it out of context, I was explaining the gif. I know reading into something is very hard for you, and taking things out of context is quite easy.

The super white part...felt the need to quote that? You aren't whtie? If so, a little on the bigot side making a comment like that. but then again, you can't be racist against white people so that doesn't matter.

I thanked them for being sane, and not a criminal like you.

Congrats on being an uninformed and paranoid criminal who hates the idea of law enforcement, especially on the Federal level. I'm really jealous of how cool you are.

Tell me, how was jail? Or were you in prison? Was it a federal prison? I bet you have great stories to go along with your delusions of grandeur.

I've seen fake Bure and Linden 94 Canucks jerseys for a while, and 91 Lemieux jerseys too. Which is a shame, because they come with all the patches (Badger Bob, 2 Pts, Cup Finals) and no legit jersey you can buy does. Same with the Crosby Oceanic Memorial Cup jerseys. Can't buy that one legit if you wanted, let alone with the MasterCard Memorial Cup patch.
