    NFL Store Site Bans the Name "Gay" From Personalized Jerseys

    It seems that an LSU professor, Leigh Clemons, wanted to buy a jersey with the name of one of her former students. The student happened to be Randall Gay, a defensive back for the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. Her attempts were initially rejected. "The NFL Shop website said that they weren't allowed to print 'naughty words' on jerseys," Clemons says, according to Wockner. "I had to call the shop and go through three levels of bureaucracy to get the jersey."

    "Clemons said site employees lifted the block on the word 'gay' just long enough for her to place her order then immediately reinstated it," the story said.

    From http://outsports.com/nfl/2005/0301nflshop.htm


    The article includes a link to the 1100+ words and phrases that are banned for personalized NFL jerseys, including "Lesbian," "Sexy" and "ID TEN T."

    I wonder if someone who lives in Fort Gay, WV would be able to get the NFL to ship a jersey to that address?

    I wonder if the NHL has banned getting Miroslav Satan's name on your jersey?

    That is, if the NHL still exists...

    "Chubby Rain" is still okay.

    Some of those are great.

    Who would get "Toiletlicker" on their jersey? :MandJ:

    There's some odd ones on the banned list:

    K MART
    GOT JESUS
    NEON DEON

    I did get a chuckle out of seeing "Carruth" on the list, I bet they did get some requests for that one. And I've actually got a Bengals jersey with "He Hate Me" on the back, a friend of mine got it for me as a joke a couple years ago. I guess it's a collector's item now. :MandJ:

    I can't believe I'll never be able to get a New Orleans Saints "PIMP" jersey, or a Raiders "DAHMER" jersey. What's this world coming to?
