New England Patriots Allowing Fans to Exchange their Hernandez Jersey, Here’s What Detroit Lions Fans Wish The Could Trade In


Plenty of Detroit Lions fans have experienced buyers remorse after picking up a jersey of a player who doesn’t end up staying with the team for very long. That feeling reached a new high last week when thousands of New England Patriots fans went from having a replica jersey of a tight end in their closet to a replica jersey of a man accused of murder.

To the Patriots organization’s credit, they are allowing their fans the opportunity to bring their #81 Hernandez jersey to the team’s pro shop to exchange it for a different jersey. When the news came out, I asked Detroit Lions fans what they wish the organization would allow them to trade in. Here are some of the answers I received through fans connecting with SideLion Report on Facebook and Twitter:

From Bob P. on facebook:

The entire reign of Matt freakin’ Millen!

From Brennan C. on facebook:

My old Charles Rogers jersey. Or the black ones they wore for like three years.

From John S. on facebook:

The last 25 years as a Lion’s fan
