#12 Jersey and the "FAN" namebar.
Fri Jan 04, 2013 10:32 pm
  • Just a quick question from a Seahawks fan who lives outside of Seattle, the state of Washington and the United States of America. I understand the significance of the #12 to the franchise, and see that many fans purchase jerseys with the #12, but it seems weird to me to have the "FAN" namebar.

    Why don't more people put their own last name on their #12 Seahawks jersey? Can't you just get a namebar with the heat sealed letters at the team store? Is it considered vain? Is it too expensive or inconvenient?

  • Do you post on fbg's?

    Hockey rules and more people should get their own name on the back.

  • Most people don't care if it says FAN, if you care you get a custom, because at that point you probably care about the quality of the thing too.

    You can get a custom done with any name and number you want as long as it is not profane or some such.

  • I have a custom 12 Jersey that says LoudNProud. I still dont know why the 12 jerseys say Fan instead of 12thMan or Man?

  • #12 FAN is less expensive than customized.

    Also, this year, it took Nike a LONG time to have customized jerseys available. This is why I have #12 FAN in grey. Didn't want to wait for customizable jersey.

    Further, my wife had just plunked down a serious wad the previous season for authentic #12 PSYCHO for me, so the $$$ goes elsewhere this year. :(

    I would love "PSYCHOBABBLER," but that is one letter too many. To which I say, "Balderdash! If you can fit HOUSHMANZADEH on a shirt, PSYCHOBABBLER will fit!

    Almost everywhere. Have never seen a Fan jersey being sold where I am in California. Had to get mine online. I have an authentic blank I want to make into a 12 jersey. Just need the name and number kit and somewhere to put it on.

  • Convenience and cost. My #12 Jerseys look great, I would prefer to change out the FAN, but I would want to match the quality of what I have. It would have to be easy.
    Opportunity to make some money here. I tried a #84 jersey, then Galloway had a contract dispute and vowed not to buy individual player jerseys for me. My sons get the player jerseys.
    I broke my vow and just bought a #3 RW to wear the rest of the year and the future.
    I'm on the bandwagon for multiple Superbowls. Ready for #1 now.
    Go Hawks!

  • Isn't the easy answer that #12 is retired in honor of the fans? It even says FAN on the banner in the stadium.

    I know that, but why not put your own name on the jersey if you are a fan of the team? I get that it costs more to customize, but how much more is it?

  • a customized jersey is like 150 for the cheap one and 299 for the stitched... so quite a bit more.

    If you want to pick another number, I understand, but the team should offer to create a new name bar for the 12 jerseys for a minimal cost. Missed opportunity to make a little more money.
