I really don't want to get into politics here...
I bought a Holmstrom jersey for like $160 at the JLA when I was drunk because all my friends did too...
It is super thin and seems way sub par to the $50 Lidstrom jersey a friend bought online before we went to the game.
It goes without saying that I felt a bit jipped.
Can we really feel bad purchasing from one of these el cheapo sites? The NHL I am sure contracts also sweatshops to make their jerseys they sell for $150+
Don't lecture a poor unemployed American for choosing to buy a jersey that is $35 or whatever because that is all they can afford. I won't judge.
It is easy to turn a blind eye and support the company selling cheaper jerseys when your bridge card ran out and you have to go 3 more days with empty cupboards until it refills.
When you see how wealthy even entry level nhl players are compared to you, "stealing" from the NHL seems like an obvious choice.
Its not like any of these jerseys are american apparel made by union workers now are they?
Has anyone tried this site?http://www.nhl-jerseys-supply.com/
$30 jerseys that look pretty nice ( I really don't care if it is not 100% accurate for that matter )
I am looking to buy 1 of each NHL teams jerseys for a video project I want to do.
at $900 +20shipping
Don't even think about lecturing me on not spending $4500 at NHL.com for roughly the same 30 jerseys. I just can't fly with that absurd amount extra for something that is not 4 times better quality.
Also what the hell is with none of these cheap sites stocking Florida Panthers jerseys? it seems like everyone I go to they don't even have Florida as listed, HAHA!
