Patriots merch available
 
So Modell's jump the gun on a half a million in AFC Champs stuff for NE, and will now donate it

There is the long running joke that everyone in Ethiopia thinks the Bills have won 4 Super Bowls.

My questions are: why do they need to jump the gun after the championship games, and who buys championship game gear?
If your team is going to the SB, don't you want SB stuff? Wouldn't an AFC or NFC chamions shirt just be a reminder that you lost in the Super Bowl

I dunno...I think if you have already WON a Super Bowl, at some point somewhere along the line in the past, it's different....now if the Saints ever lost a Super Bowl in the future, obviously for the year or two afterward, an "NFC Champions" T-shirt when you just lost the freaking Super Bowl, would seem kind of stupid and sad. But once enough time goes by, it's in the past, I think it doesn't really matter anymore, your team DID win the conference championship, so why not.

For instance, if you were a fan, I think it would be kinda cool to have a "Washington Redskins, 1972 NFC Champions" T shirt, if such a thing existed. That'd be kinda cool. Or a Titans shirt from the Titans/Rams game, the Titans lost on the last play -- ain't no shame in that loss now, people consider that one of the greatest Super Bowls ever. On the other hand, a Vikings or Falcons "NFC Champions" shirt would be pretty laughable.

I dunno. I guess it just depends on the team and the season and the game, and what kind of mojo each team had. Definitely would not want a Bengals "AFC Champions" shirt from the year their players were all coked out and they lost.

Somewhere at home I have an awesome bootleg '91 "Cha Ching" "NFC "Wesssst Champions" Saints shirt, it's pretty cool. Great conversation piece even though they lost in the playoffs.

I have a Raiders 2002 AFC Champions T Shirt. I wore it the day after the Super Bowl. Even though they got blown out in the Super Bowl, they had a great season. Wore the T-shirt all the time.
