Maybe Boycotting The NFL Apparel Isn't The Answer

Boycotting the NFL apparel is a real showing of solidarity. We as a region are standing up to the unreasonable sanctions slapped on us by the NFL.
However, here's a thought, are we really accomplishing anything? The NFL has to expect a drop off in Saints gear but I doubt that they keep up with where sales are coming from.
The people we are really hurting are our local Saints vendors and business men.(don't buy from the NFL-buy from the BNG) We need to show unity by buying even more gear from our folks. Let's keep the region together and show our colors. Everything I wear is Saints oriented not even rugby jerseys now.
Here's another thought, you might even save a little money. I have a feeling Saints gear is fixing to go on sale. I certainly have mixed feelings about that.
I am getting ready to start buying again and I hope you do too. Who Dat!

I am so open to other suggestions. It's fairly obvious the NFL, ESPN and SI could give a rat's ass what we think. We still need to vent somehow and until somebody comes up with something more effective, anything with those three letters on it is going to be on the rack instead of my back.

Don't forget, we host the biggest event in the NFL this upcoming year. I believe we can get our point across boycott or not.

I will be wearing one of the new jerseys. For sure. In each color.

However, they will only cost me $38 each, including shipping.

They aren't stopping the money from burning a hole in my pocket.
