I've seen Baumann at a handful of games this year. More than last year already. Glad to see he's still doing his thing, even if not as often as before.

Really?  Last time I saw him was late in the 11-12 season.

Yeah he's definitely been there at least twice this season when I was there.

So it's weird for a 40yr old man to have a jersey of his favorite team with his own name on the back, but it isn't weird for a 40yr old man to wear a jersey with the name of an 18yr old boy on the back?

 

 

 

I am neither a 40yr old man or someone with their own name on the back of their jersey.  Just an interesting question.

When someone is recognized for a special event the Devils give them a sweater with their name on it.  They drop the ceremonial puck and leave.  If they wear this sweater again that would make them something less than a fan?  I won't use the language posted.

 

It is horrendous to read this forum and see one fan call another fan names because they don't agree with them.  Terrible posters, awful posts and the such.  Mocking fans makes the person doing the mocking not less of a fan but less of a human being imo. 

 

Why is it okay for some posters to vent yet others are reprimanded?  No wonder many of the original posters have left.

While I do believe in jersey fouls, I also think too many purists overreact to them.  Since this jersey was a gift, I don't really think it's a big deal.

Wait it out for now, and show your appreciation for the gift, ultimately that's what counts. After awhile, when the moment has long worn out, you can tell her something like, "I don't like people shouting our last name in public and taunting us, I am going to get the jersey changed to a player but I want you to know the gift is very special to me, as are you." Follow that up with a hug and you have fixed the situation with everyone feeling swell.

I read this and thought that maybe it was aimed at my comment.

But really where did this happen in this thread?

I've been asking for a Devils jersey for Christmas literally every year, it's the only thing I ask for when my mother constantly asks me for a list. I never get one. Still the only jersey I have is a Scott Gomez I won in a raffle when I was like ten or so. It's still huge on me, but it's the only jersey I have to wear to games. I'm one of the last guys left that sports the taped Gomez sweater. I still love the CCM jerseys. But if anyone's feeling generous, you can send this guy an Elias jersey... and tuition money. Thanks.

Haha, or first world problems.

 

If it's such a problem for you, OP, and you don't feel comfortable wearing it at the arena, don't wear it. The best option is, probably, talking to the person who gave it to you, saying thanks and telling her/him that you have a favourite player whose jersey you'd love to get, so since you got the sweater, you'll redo the lettering on the back to the name of that player...

 

The jersey fouls column at Puck Daddy is usually funny when you have people with some really dumb stuff on their jerseys or when they do things that could *really* be considered a sacrilege (like, tearing two jerseys apart and sewing their halves together). But sometimes it gets extreme and I'm getting this totally macho vibe with fans pointing fingers at others because some minor detail is off or someone customizes their jersey the way they like. Come on, even the official NHL shop puts up those ads with jerseys reading "YOUR NAME" on the backs. Don't like it, don't do that to your jersey, but if someone else likes it - who the hell are you to tell them not to wear it? And is it that big of a deal to rip people over it? Sheesh...

 

Personally, the only problem I'd have with the jersey would be the "01" on the back. :P No reason for that 0 in there. Oh, plus, maybe I wouldn't feel to comfortable with all the people around me seeing my last name instantly (if it is your last name, no the first name). But a jersey with my first name on the back, I probably wouldn't mind.

One thing I stopped doing a long time ago was lookiing down at knockoff jerseys and fans who wear them...jerseys that might not have the stripe proportions correct, or incorrect fonts, or be off in some other way.  Not everyone is as hardcore about these things as many of us might be...they might not even notice the differences, or might be aware of them but simply don't care.  Or maybe such fans really don't have much money, can't really swing the cost of a licensed authentic or replica, go on e-bay, see a knockoff selling for a lower cost, and decide to go that route.  If I see someone like that at a Devils game, the way I see it, at least he's 1) in the building and supporting his team, and 2) wearing something that shows he's supporting the team.  I'll take that guy over the opposing teams' fans in the building wearing authentics any day.

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.

I wasn't looking to start a debate on that topic anyway.  I'm sure there's a lot of people who hate knockoffs and everything about them.  I won't ever buy one myself.

You can count me in that category too.  I know you weren't trying to start a debate but it was bound to happen as this is a sure fire topic here and I usually get sucked in myself.  It's an arguement I know I can never really win so I thought about it and edited to just drop it lol.

so it's douchey to be original and not have to have an actual player's name on your jersey? since when!?

You're original and not just one of the herd buying another Brodeur jersey or like when we had Kovalchuk or Parise jumping on that bandwagon... I'd wear it! My sister actually just got her bf one with his last name on it, though she picked #9 (should have picked a number that isn't used by a real player)

 

I've seen plenty of people at games with what is obviously their last name on the name plate and a number of their choice. It's not douchey and it's not a "Jersey Foul" despite what Puck Daddy might say. A true foul is having an incorrect number for a player, a jersey for a player your team never had (or never will) or some idiotic nickname. (I will make an exception for one I saw made up to honor Lou though, had "LAMORIELLO" on the nameplate and a $ for the number. How you get a $ like that idk, but it was original)
