Just how do you expect children to wear destroyed t-shirts, subby?

I don't get this. Donating them to charity or shipping them to impoverished regions would buy a whole lot of good PR for the company but they're electing to just burn the defective merchandise.

Kind of silly and wasteful.

The kids buying those from Old Navy probobly wouldn't know the difference any how.

Just market them under a new "Sportstroll" line and make a killing.

And if you bought one, sell it on ebay

This is why they say they are destroying them when the truth is they are most likely being given away to charity, and they will get a big tax right off for it.

This. The only people that would notice shiat like that are people that would make Rainman look bad. If someone says "1968" and you go "Hmm, that was the Jets and the Piggers, yup, Piggers went all the way that year. Oh I remember it well, Dick Twisty kicked a fieldy in the 5th to score a touchdown and the town went wild" then you may be devoting too much time to football.

Incidentally, I'm not finding anything wrong with the Jets shirt in the article - they were the AFL and NFL champs for the 1968 season.

I'm guessing the NFL licensing agreement would require them to be destroyed and certification of the destruction would be required by the league. I also imagine the NFL is going to require a payment for the violations.

That also tripped me up for a second...but upon further review the article is correct...the two leagues didn't merge until 1970 so the Jets weren't technically NFL champs...just the AFL champions who beat the NFL champions in a single game.

/Auditioning for an writing job at TMZ...how'd I do?

Ahh, yes I suppose that's true. As for your audition, you should probably throw in some unverified rumors about Joe Namath's sex life and half a dozen question marks if you really want a shot.

lifeboat:


I want one of those so badly.

Also, when the article refers to the Texans as being a 'classic' team, it tells me alot.

Ironically, I also want one, but not for that reason.

Pittsburgh Steelers, 2011 AFC Champions.

How many people are going to lose their jobs over this.

it's funny that they probably meant the Cowboys instead of the Texans. The people writing these articles we probably just being borned around the time the Cowpokes were last relevant. Texans look good this year as always until Schaub needs a band-aid and a pop-tart for a few games.

No, the Cowboys were complete shiat as a team until the late 60s, and an NFL team.

The Houston Oilers were AFL champs in 1960 and 1961, and the Dallas Texans were '62 champs. How someone farked up and combined the two, I don't know.
