Doug Gottlieb is filling in for Cowherd today and I caught an funny/interesting segment that was more or less talking about how Jeremy Lin jersey sales will probably go through the roof, and it's quite possible in a month or 2 from now, those possibly will be looked back on as "Bad Purchases" by the fans that buy them.
They went on to talk about some other sports/teams that would fit into this category where fans buy into the hype/excitement a little too soon and end up with a jersey that is irrelevant shortly after.
Some examples were:
Aaron Brooks Saints Jersey.
Scottie Pippen Rockets Jersey.
Tim Biakabatuka Panthers Jersey.
Ron Mercer Celtics Jersey.
Darryl Strawberry Dodgers Jersey.
Ki'Jana Carter Bengals Jersey etc.
So my question is, what are some of the bad personal jersey purchases for the Jets fans on this board.
I personally have never had a jersey, but the one I remember really wanting was a Neil O'Donnell jersey in 7th grade after he came to the Jets. At that point in time, I thought he was going to be the man.
If this season is not a good one for Mr. Sanchez My jersey will be on this thread. My Pops got me an authentic one so its a sick jersey but its all sewn on so i can always change it to Lucas..lol
I have bought Boomer Esiason replica, a O'Donnell, a Chrebet, a Testeverde replicas (Wish I still had those two back), a Pennington that I'm holding onto, even though it doesn't fit me anymore since I lost weight and a Farve authentic that I gave to my ex girlfriend. She tells me she gets a lot of crap for it. She lives in Chicago.
Only jerseys I want now are a Namath, Chrebet, Martin and Klecko.

I just flat out don't buy jerseys. Players come and go too quickly, and it's only acceptable to me if it's an all-time great Jet or an absolute favorite all-time Jet. That being said, I'd love a James Hasty jersey, as he was my all-time favorite player to watch (he was our shutdown corner that didn't get the credit until AFTER he left the team, and kind of didn't get national attention because it was the same era that Neon played).
I'll be a man and take a bow here ... And for all you not raising your hands ... Cowards.
Never did the process that goes into buying a jersey is length of tenure and position...plus who you think is gonna last the longest...and some guys buy because of the numbers they wore... but never a ghost jerz.
