James Harrison doesn’t like the Steelers’ throwback jerseys

By Chris Chase | Shutdown Corner



The following news shouldn't come as a surprise, as James Harrison has both strong opinions and two eyes: The menacing Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker doesn't like the new "bumblebees in jail" throwbacks the team will be wearing for its 80th season.
"There's a reason these jerseys were from 1932," he tweeted. "it's 2012 now though, so send them back!!! lol"

The "lol" lets you know he's laughing.

I don't think the jerseys are all that bad but, then again, I don't have to wear one for two games this season. They're ugly, yes, but they're retro ugly, which is a totally different thing. You can pull off retro ugly if it's only for two games. It's not like Pittsburgh is wearing these things all season. That'd be a sartorial atrocity. These jerseys are like a seersucker suit. You can't wear it all the time. But if you rock it at a special occasion, like the Kentucky Derby or at a summer wedding in North Carolina, then it looks tremendous.

Then again, the list of things James Harrison doesn't like far outweighs the things he does like. On the former list: Attending the White House, flying, Roger Goodell, apologizing for using gay slurs to refer to Roger Goodell, studio analysts, reporters who show up early, ending phone calls in a civilized manner, snakes, dressing up for meals, gay marriage, the New England Patriots. On the latter: playing linebacker, hard work, guns, fake retirements. Can't say it's a shock that horizontal, multicolored stripes aren't included.

My friend is a die hard Bears fan that grew up in New Castle, and he went crazy when he saw them (in a good way). He can't stand the Steelers, but he said that he might actually buy one. It actually grew on me when he showed me the jersey close up. I like how it's almost all mesh. I don't think it's that bad up close, but from afar it is pretty bad

Just my thoughts on the throwbacks....The throwbacks are just horrible.And its going to be worse when you see a whole team on the field wearing them.I thought the ones we wore back in the 90's were bad.But these make those look great.I miss when there were no throwbacks and special jerseys,but then i am old.And i i realize its all about the doller and marketing and no so much with tradition anymore....

throwback jerseys aside, its all about idiots with $$$ to piss away.

who the hell would spend $1000 to go watch a game in the 1st place? nevermind the jackholes sinking a whole house to buy PSL's?

its amazing how many people will pledge their allegiance to players such as baron batch or wes saunders and buy a special order authentic for $250, just because a player who may not even make the squat "re-tweeted" them.

the same people will throw a year old $250 mike wallace jersey into the closet to never be seen again, if he isnt signed after this year.



its not the owners or leagues fault people are idiots. it is america and capitalism at its finest.

if you dont have last years cam heyward jersey, not only arent you a TRUE steelerfan, you aint shit. (not you personally)
