Do we really need these jobs back? We are a highly educated society, I couldn't care less about these jobs that are better off in third world countries.

Now re-read what you wrote, development. That sounds like the jobs we need here in America. Just look at UO. Who paid for those athletic buildings? Chinese knockoff factory owners?

Either way, the profits made by Nike are reinvested in America. Where are the profits going for these Chinese knockoffs?


i really hope youre being sarcastic. america desperately needs manufacturing jobs, not everyone is "highly educated" and can work in "development".

Which goes to pay back China for the wars we used a credit card for, but hey. This thread was originally about gloves and has morphed into this.

Take a look at the graduation and literacy rates of the average high school student in Oregon alone and you will have the answer to this question. We are not as educated of a society as you think and more and more young people are hitting the workforce without the ability to read a college level novel let alone get any type of degree. Only 65% of high school graduates in Oregon alone have a 8th grade reading level. Only 88% of high school students in Oregon actually complete high school. Obviously there is a market for these kinds of jobs sad as that may seem. People need these jobs and would happily take them.

This thread WAS about gloves. Should be locked, due to being hijacked by the counterfeiters. Been said many times that the forum does not promote fake gear.

I highly doubt it, especially if you can customize it, than I really highly doubt it. The only way I see getting authentic gear for that price is if it was stolen from a real Nike factory after it has passed quality assurance. Aside from that, there's no way that Nike legitimately sells fresh jerseys for that cheap(C grade is a possibility, but those usually hit the outlets). Don't mistake high quality replicas with 100% Nike approved apparel.

Highly doubt what? Im telling you something I've personally done. But ok. No one said the are real. they are replicas. I cant tell the difference and I didnt have to pay 250$ for them. Ive got 6 replica jerseys and 2 real NFL store bought jerseys.

The guy you quoted said that "There is absolutely no way your "buddy" has found a source for authentic NFL stuff that cheap.", in which you replied "actually there is..." and then in which I replied "I highly doubt it..."

if what your "highly doubting" is the fact of if they are authentic NIKE jerseys then you are correct. They are replicas

Yeah lol. The dude you quoted was talking about authentic Nike gear so I thought it was reasonable to assume that when you addressed him, it was about authentic Nike gear.

Fake jerseys suck, but a knock off Seahawks jersey is ALWAYS better than a licensed 49ers jersey.

I'm still waiting for Nike to actually put out a jersey worth $250. Their "limited" looks nothing like the the real one. At least my authentic Reebok one looks like it could've been worn on the field.


How about Nike putting out a decent jersey that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? Lower the price and you will solve most of the gray market buying.
