5/19 Discussion - Wearing your name on the back of a Wild jersey

One of the biggest jersey fouls someone can commit is putting their own name on the back of a NHL jersey. Sure it feels great, but it's not like anyone is paying to see #24 Hernandez on the ice. However, the Minnesota Wild are unique as they have retired #1 for the fans. Due to that, many people have their own #1 jersey with their name on the back. Is this acceptable?

Honestly, it doesn't really bug me that much. They're paying money for it, I voted yes, but that being said...I think it's weird to see a #9 with anything but Koivu on it.

I don't really want to buy a jersey until I know that guy is going to be with the Wild for a long time, which is why I'm most likely going to be buying a Havlat jersey if/when he switches to #24. I think Koivu will be here a long time, so I don't want to look like a guy who has a #15 James Sheppard jersey, talk about a waste of money...

I'm not a fan of people who throw their name on the back of a Wild jersey. However, it isn't worthy of violence unless they throw a "C" on the front.

That's going to be me in a few years. Oh well, I can be like the guy with the old Koivu number.

Against. Nobody cares what your name, nickname, etc., is...it's really just a waste of money. If you're going to spend money on lettering, do it right.

I'm another no person. If you want your name on the back of a jersey, play beer league.

I've got my name on the back of my rec league jerseys...good enough for me. Although we have Devils colors, wonder how weird it would be to wear my jersey to a Wild-Devils game?

Anyways, against.

I guess I'm still too new to vote but if I could I'd vote "no"...

It just looks funny when people do it, especially when they make themselves captain! haha

So how do you guys feel about player nick names on jersey's?

Like would it be unacceptable to have a Boogaard jersey With "Boogeyman" as the name?

Or a Brunette jersey with "Bruno"


or how about an attempt at humor like to have a Chicago Blackhawks home jersey with the name "Griswold" on it? I think I'd laugh if I saw that...


In conclussion, I think the only way it's acceptable to have your name on a pro jersey is if you 1) you play in the NHL or 2) you happen to have the same last name as a player & you give yourself the same number! haha

I had a friend named Mike Johnson who bought Matt Johnson's jersey just because the last name was the same as his But he bought it because it was his last name, not because he nessecarily liked the player. But no one would ever know that unless he told them, so that's acceptable in my book! haha

Yeah, the captain touch is a foul on a whole different level.

Nicknames: No, unless it's a Bruno on a 17,615 jersey.

Humor: There are only a couple ones that work (i.e. Griswold) and the Wild don't have one.

It makes more sense to me to put one's own name rather than that of a player. Players come and go, but one keeps their own name forever.

That's only true for about 50% of the population. Well maybe 55 because there are some spinsters.

I'm of the opinion of 'don't waste your money on any replica sweater.'

Especially where some of these prices are going. If you're going to spend a couple hundred on a sweater, save up some more and find a good source for game worns. Then go ahead and throw it up on your wall somewhere in your house. Maybe take it down on occasion and wear it to a game.

I do like my $300 Gaborik authentic (got for Christmas five years ago)...but I only wear it 2-3 times a year. Next time I'll probably get a green Chinese import jersey with no name/number because whoever I like will get traded.
