Just got my 2 yr old daughter her own jersey with her fist name and day she was born on the back.  Who gives a rats fuzzy ass who's name is on the back, you should be proud of your name anyway.  Its not high school.

Fu€k me it's the thought that counts no?

Someone had taken the time to buy you something related to something you like, get it customised and give it to you and all you can think about is how you won't wear it or might look like a douchebag?

Keep it and appreciate the thought and care that went into getting it for you.

Oh and remember it's the crest on the front not the name on the back that matters.

I see lots of folks with their names on it. It's not about the name on the back, we're all brethren.  Leave it alone!

 

 btw, I hope Teddy tears it up in the A

For me that wouldn't be a very difficult decision. I have jerseys that I wear to the game and this probably wouldn't be one of them. However, I would NOT tear it apart out of as respect for the thought that was invested in the jersey. I would feel like a complete douchebag even if the person that gifted it didn't find out.

 

I'd totally wear it around the house without shame and be thankful that someone actually put some thought and effort into a present.

 

However, every person is different. Do what you think is right.

 

I agree.  Sneax, wear it around the house and maybe around the person that gave it to you if you're not comfortable wearing it to a game, but seriously, who gives a fvck what people think anyway, really?  What do you think, people are going to come up to you and knock you for wearing a jersey that clearly isn't a player on the team?  No one's going to point you out and cry "JERSEY FOUL!"  And I would think most Devils fans would be a lot more concerned with the actual event on the ice than deciding what jerseys are worthy of being worn at Devils games.  Do what YOU want to do...once you stop giving a sh!t about what other people think, life is incredibly simpler and liberating.       

 

I see lots of jerseys at games:  old ones, new ones, authentics, replicas, throwbacks, Rockies, Scouts, knockoffs, non-personalized, good and accurate lettering, bad and inaccurate letting, fans with their own names and number of their choice on the back.  I go the authentic route with actual player names myself, but if I see some guy wearing a "SMITH #69" jersey, I'm not thinking to myself "Geez, what a loser, I'd never be caught dead in that thing."  If it makes him happy, all the more power to him.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

wear it with a cap or a ghostbusters proton pack, the back won't show and you'll still look really cool.

Having your own last name and number on the back is fine.

 

However, I wouldn't be caught dead having "Rangerssuckov" on mine like I have seen someone wear before.

Stop caring about what strangers you will probably never talk to think about you and your jersey. Problem solved.

Yup totally agree.. Growing up I always wanted to play for the Mets so I saved up one year and got a jersey with my name on the back.. One or 2 people told me it was dumb so I never wore it again and wasted all that money

Now I have my Colin 226 jersey to represent my section and I love it.. Though it's heavy so I don't wear it as much, I could care less what other people think.. I've seen many other people with names on the back of jerseys who I definitely don't recognize, so do you man and don't worry what other people think

This, pretty much. 

 

Whoever gave it to you put thought and money into getting you a gift. Who gives a damn what a bunch of people think, first off. Secondly, I've seen plenty of people with their names on jerseys and never even gave it a second thought. They are all over the Rock if you look around. The fact that you haven't even noticed them pretty much answers your question. 

 

I got a jersey with my name on it. When the Wild first released their jersey, it was before they'd signed or drafted any players, so I just got my name and football number on it. It's not a big deal. I think in your case, it's more the thought that counts.

Just got a jersey from a family member, it has my last name on it and an 01.

Personally I can't wear it, I've never seen a single person at a hockey game with their own name on their jersey. And it seems ultra douchey. What would you guys do, I can't change the name because if she ever finds out she will get upset. Do you wear it to games if you were me? Do you use it for game watching at home or do you leave the blasphemous item in the closet.

the name is OK but the 01 part is kind of odd.

Last few posts here sum it up real well, CR1976 and Devil Dan especially (that seems to be the case with you two so often - stop being so damn rational and logical all the time, you're making the rest of us look bad!)

 

It's a pretty creative and nice gift (I'd be floored if someone actually got that for me), wear it around the house at least.

Even if you're not comfortable wearing it out now, keep it around. One day your outlook might change and you'll think it's pretty cool that you have it.

I have a jersey with my last name on and my birth year as the number (82, same as the Devils move to NJ).

I am not a douche, as evidence by being voted nicest poster here many years in a row.

 

So, there ya go.

Wear it or change the name if you're that self conscious about what other people won't even say to you.

 

Stashing it in the closet is probably the most disrespectful thing you can do.  "Hey, I'm ok with you wasting your time and money on something I'll never even attempt to use.  And when you ask, I'm going to lie to you about it!"

Personally, my rule for your own last name on a jersey is it's ok until you're older than 10-12 because when you're a kid, it's cool to think about being on the team yourself and all that. When you get a bit older, it just seems weird and a bit narcissistic.
