I'm not happy unless I can bitch about something. But there are so many things I'd rather bitch about than these jerseys.

While I am attending The "school for the pretensious and enlightened" being turned into a crumudgion of historic proportions, I would simply like to state that the more likeley scenario was

"hey let's make these jerseys, they will make lots of money and we can say we are supporting the military"

Instead of

"dear illuminous leader, we will make the jersey's, and when the children gaze upon them, they will lust for blood"

don't you hate it at the ACC when a soldier who just returned from duty gets pointed out and receives a nice round of applause? What's jerks MLSE are.
if that was the scenario, it's awful. making money off of false patriotism, and linking that patriotism to military service as something we all should be beholden to is duplicitous.

also, you still don't get the point, or perhaps are just intentionally misrepresenting it. there is no one that is saying it will make people lust for blood. it is about the linking of military action, love for country, pride, patriotism and duty, among other things. none of this belongs together necessarily, and a universal 'support our troops' message denies the ability to question, or at times to not support, what our troops are involved in.

and yes, i hate it when they do that at the acc with a soldier who just returns from 'duty'. he/she may not deserve my applause, and i'm not given a chance to really know what he/she did.


it is quite something to misrepresent and overstate things this many times in an argument in which you have accused the other person as being sensationalistic.

I also hate when Oliver Stone makes movies and Bob Dylan writes music.

Yes, those jerseys are eyesores, but that's been the case with most of the Raptors gear over the years.

I don't understand why the team doesn't do a re-brand adopting the Huskies jerseys (white and blue) for home and away. It fall in line with the colours associated with Toronto sports teams and those Huskies jerseys look a million times better. They could have a red and black as a third jersey.

I've had no problem with their gear the last 10-12 years for the most part.

Why do conversations around here always turn into essays of epic proportions on politics or religion?

Great Question.

It shouldn't, there is a time and a place for those things...hell we created an entire forum for it.

Some of us just need to crap on stuff, and serve our self importance.

So how about those jersey's they sure are ugly huh.

i didn't bait you, i just knew you would jump in, since you usually do. you know me well enough by now that i have great interest in these topics whether or not you are involved. it's pretty egotistical to think that i care enough about you to try to bait you into anything.
