    Re: Thurman Update

    I'll believe it when I see it, I still remain skeptical of seeing Thurman in a Bengal uniform again. If I were the Bengals I wouldn't count on him to contribute again, which is what I think they did last year and along with the injuries decimated their LB corps. If he does come back to form, great but I'm not expecting him to and it doesn't sound like Marvin has any interest in handing a spot to him when he gets back...

    Looks like I may be able to wear my Odell Thurman jersey again for more than just comedy value. That wasn't one of the better purchases I've made.

    Isn't it technically illegal to make an Anthony Schlegel Bengals jersey? If not, I want to find someone who can make an Ethan Kilmer jersey for me.

    2 years away is a long time not to be in game shape.

    Should prove interesting to see what kind of rust he'll have if he's allowed back.

    You can make any name on a uni you want at the NFLshop.com

    I think with a young guy its not going to matter as much. I think of a Josh Hamilton type scenario.

    Can't wait to see the overall fan's reactions to Thurman coming back.
    I'm excited for him, hopefully he's gotten his life together, or at least as much as is possible.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    It will be a shame if people dont welcome him back. Its not like he was out there doing Chris Henry things. Well he didnt get in trouble for them if he was.

    For some reason, I thought it was illegal to have an NFL jersey with a player's actual name and number on it unless it was already made. I thought it had something to do with licensing from the NFLPA.

    They're $100 for a replica, and $260 for an authentic if I'm reading the site right. That doesn't sound bad. I was thinking, because of some of the concerns you mentioned, they might be really expensive.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Nope you can do what ever you want. Just like on the MLB site you just have to custom order it.

    Just don't try to order a Falcons jersey with "Ron Mexico" on the back.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    The rule on customized jerseys is that you can't order one with offensive words on the back. After the whole "Ron Mexico" incident involving Michael Vick and a woman he was seeing, a number of people started ordering "#7 Mexico" Falcons jerseys. The NFL found that to be to controversial and started canceling orders for such a jersey. I suspect they'd do the same if you attempted to order a Steelers jersey with "Toothlessberger" on the back.
