And dont even get me started on how pricey the NFL merchandise, especially jerseys, can be. But its all about the big business that todays NFL has become---marketing, merchandise, tickets and concessions are no exception.

Stick to the franchise quarterbacks. They're the only ones with job security.

You really can't buy jersies anymore these days.... sports are such a business and really don't cater to the fans. I wonder if merchandise sales will drop a little because of this trend.

If anything it'll increase them as fans hurry to update their collections.

Got a Wilson and Cruz jersey last year for a combined whopping price of 55 bucks.

Does anyone wear the jerseys of Giants who changed teams?

Pierce and Manning. Next is a Weatherford. Think he'll be on the team for a while.

Weatherford screaming "YEAH MOTHER F***ING SUPER BOWL!!!!" after that Tynes kick automatically excelled him to my top 5 favorite players on the team. That and his anti-filthadelphia tweets.

Agreed....you can't go wrong getting a Harry Carson 53.

The last jersey I bought of a current player was NJ Devils defenseman Ken Daneyko.

I hate getting a current player's jersey. Unless it's Eli Manning or Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers.

Need to have an emotional connectin with the player, OR they must sign for a huge *** contract

the only current players i have jerseys of are Jagr, Lundqvist, Eli, and Jeter. Only one people might question is Jagr, but I wear the Jagr jersey without shame. Loved him as a Ranger.

The most painful jersey I have is a Leetch jersey my grandson got me in 1997. It was game worn and has the 'C' on the sweater. When we traded Leetchy to Toronto the jersey just made me sad. I have since gotten over the trauma of seeing him in a Leafs (and later Bruins) jersey.

the only ones I have that I can still wear are Eli, Hostetler & Bavaro

I got 2 Plaxs, S Smith, Tiki, Osi, Shockey & Boss collecting dust

I'll buy a Cruz if he's re-signed

Free agency, player contracts, long term suspensions all a conspiracy mastermined by the NFL and the clothing manufactorers such as Nike and Champion. You may laugh at this but it's true. We must find a way to stop them. We should put on our outdated jersey's and form a MILLION FAN MARCH up Park ave to the NFL'S main office and put a end to this forever. We can burn our current jersey's and throw crates of incomming one's off of Chinese freighters into the Hudson river. What ya say let's do it.

Lol. The last time I bought a Giants jersey ? Tiki Barber, go figure. That's a fact i come to grasp long time ago. The last one I've own ? Eli Manning's blue original jersey but I got it from a grateful patient of mine as a gift 3 years ago. I haven't wear it because I want Eli to sign it . Still waiting the opportunity.

Hey do what I do. Just finished tearing off the stitching on my Kenny Phillips jersey which is an authentic Reebok. Removed his name plate because I don't want anyone who is a traitor to have his name on a Giants Jersey. Hey someone else will get No.21 and I will have his name put on it.

I do to. Still wear my Bradshaw SB 46 and Jacob SB 42 Jersey because they are not traitors like Phillips and Smith. Hey any Giant who goes to another team for an opportunity to play more or earn more is fine with me as long the team isn't Dallas or Philly. If they go to either one of them then they went to the dark side and are traitors. Then I destroy the jersey

I made a similar post the other day in Gen Sports.

We're I'm at is buy NYG gear that is Team-s[ecific, not Player. You can't go wrong and will always be "current."

CBA, Salary Cap and Free Agency has switched everything up.

(Eli, Tiki, Stray, Jeter, Posada, Berra, Ewing and bought my older sons a Cruz and Tuck as of last year)

I found in a spare closet in my basement the other day a Ron Dayne jersey. I laughed when I saw it. I remember buying before the Start of the 2000 season when he was rookie and thought he would be a great RB. LOL. Also next to it was an authentic Shockey jersey I think I shelled out 180 for it.

Hey turn the Shockey Jersey into a Victor Cruz Jersey. There is a sporting good store near my house who puts name plates on jerseys and they did a great job for me. Looks like it was made for Cruz. Cant tell the difference.

Already have a Nike Cruz Jersey. It's most likely a knock off though. Hopefully I won't have to burn it anytime soon.

I got LT,Strahan,Manning,Jacobs,JPP. This whole thing of not wearing a jersey cause they left is silly to me. At times I still rock the Jacobs jersey and careless what people think or say. He was one of my favorite Giants and I'm still a fan of him.

You can never go wrong with the QB if he is a good one. They are proven to have staying power
