NFL Hikes Jersey Prices, Hates FansMay 20th, 2011
Joe had a long rant planned here but deleted it.
Frankly, the headline says it all.
In the face of the heinous lockout engineered by the fan-second NFL, replica jerseys at NFLShop.com now have jumped in price to $84.99, up from $79.99 earlier this year. The glorified, often Guatamalan-made mesh trash bag with numbers and letters on it was always overpriced anyway, but to hike jersey rates in the face of the lockout is just too much.
A few friendly phone operators on the NFL Shop telephone line confirmed the price increase on replica jerseys, and on additional official gear.
Nice job, Commissioner.
