Wow, referring to all Big 5 teams + Notre Dame and Gonzaga as ‘WE’ must be confusing.
FTR, I'm not sure I've ever heard Ganny refer even to the Hens as "we". Think you tried to read too much into that.
No, the conversation was over referring to multiple teams same sport/level as "WE".

FWIW its worth, in a doz yrs or whatever it is, you've never heard me refer to JMU as "We" (never have for any team I pulled for). My response to people doing it (esp somewhere you didn't go to school) "What's this "we" shit? You're not on the team." To each his own I guess.

why is it such a big deal to you? That's a hell of a hill to die on.

It was a one sided conversation as you were the only one bringing up the "we" aspect. Mark, Ganny and I were talking about rooting for multiple teams.

People that get upset over fans using "we" need to get a life. :coffee:

So you're saying you have a problem with it, but don't have a problem with it. I have a MUCH bigger problem with a grown man wearing a custom jersey with HIS name on the back of a team for which he's never played. Stolen valor kind of thing.

FTR, I have three Ovechkin jerseys and I proudly wear them to Caps games where we root for our team. :ugeek:

Agreed. Who, over the age of 5 (and even then it's weird) puts their own name on a jersey? I have a Brian Dawkins Eagles jersey and a Rich Gannon Chiefs jersey. Don't see the problem in that.

Playing devil's advocate - what if you're a diehard Seahawks fan and you have your name on a #12 (for 12th man) jersey?

I give that an okay. It's a very specific fan-orientated thing, almost like a fan club. Not many teams have that so it's not even that common in places other than Seattle. Do they have to pay a royalty to Texas A&M for using the moniker?

Obviously no issue, assuming they are a real player of note. You can't just like the long-snapper because you share a last name and it gets your name on the jersey.

I'll have to disagree with you IF you also have the long snapper's number. It's fine to have ANY player on the team. The long snapper from the Giants years ago was a guy from my club. His parents were at my wedding. Had he been an Eagle, I may have gotten one.

For the Seattle scenario, Zorn is the only player to have worn #12. It's retired in honor of the fans, so OK for a fan to have their name. However, if I were a Seattle fan, I'd have a #12 Zorn jersey as he was my favorite player along with Largent (coincidentally also a member at my club) when I was a kid.
