Note to Yankee Fans: Your OWN Tradition Says You Don’t Need Names On Your Jerseys

yankee fans jerseys.jpgNot my rule. 

Yours.

And since I have heard the Yankee fan speech on why names are not pertinent to your ball club more times than Alex Rodriguez has lied to the public, I say ya’ll should stick to your own program.

Cool?

Just don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Wow. Names are not pertinent? The Yankees are more hypocritical than I thought!

I always thought nameless jerseys were stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can understand at where people know them already but on the road it’s stupid.

Weren’t the Yankees the first team to put names on their uniforms?

Ummm… Uh… Err…. We’re still better than you! Haha, but Jeff, there is a small reason some people may buy those. They’re cheaper when they have names on the back, because the nameless ones are “authentic”.

I’m against names on the backs of jerseys for the players. But for us lug nuts who wear the jerseys at home? Who cares?

Interesting how the ones with names are more expensive. Does that make any sense, because it doesn’t to me?

The whole work ethic/team unity thing doesn’t apply today. No more are the Yankees just a number of guys that all contribute heavily in their own way. They never really were with Babe Ruth stealing the spotlight in the 20′s. I guess that attitude change in the 30′s and 40′s. Now, all the players are out money. Maybe Jeter actually cares about the team, I don’t know?? I definately agree with this post. Those fans have to get it together! It is probably my most hated Yankee pet peeve too, among many.

Give it up Jeff; they’re beyond your best efforts to help them.

Apparently :-) Was worth a shot though.

Seeing as how there is very little that is truly authentic about most Yankees fans (many lack greatly in the following categories: knowledge of baseball, knowledge of the team, knowledge of driving laws, knowledge of reading and writing), this should not come as a surprise.
To those Yankees fans who have been fans for more than the Jeter era I would say this to you, by an authentic nameless jersey, and wear it to a Knicks game. If anyone at the game asks you, ‘Whose jersey is that?’ Slap them. That’s pride.
