Default BTW Ocho Cinco - one minor detail...

Wonder if Chad saw this one coming.

Quote:
In the middle of the controversy are tens – if not hundreds – of thousands of unsold “C. Johnson” replica jerseys available throughout sporting goods stores nationwide. If Ocho Cinco wants to wear “Ocho Cinco” on his back, first he must buy back all those “C. Johnson” jerseys.

The jerseys are made by Reebok, the official licensee of NFL apparel.

“When a player requests a name change or a number change, the player is responsible for that unsold inventory,” said NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy.

“They have to buy the unsold jerseys. It relates to the inventory that Reebok has in stock anticipating the jerseys it will sell based on previous years sales for that jersey.”

A CNBC report on Monday said the jerseys, which retail for about $75, could cost Ocho Cinco $48 per jersey, the cost of production. Reebok declined to say how much “C. Johnson” inventory is sitting unsold in stores.

Easy way out of this... Mr. Ocho just has to push hard for a trade next year...... new team, new jersey, someone else eats the bill for the old Bengals jerseys...(but he better hope that #85 is available on the new team)

Default Re: BTW Ocho Cinco - one minor detail...

I certainly see the humor in this but somehow I bet the NFL isn't being even handed. Do they make players pay for jerseys when they leave as free agents? Are they going to make Devin Hester wear a WR jersey and pay for the DB ones? Do the players make an extra penny when one of their jerseys sells? Is this actually in their contracts at all?

How in the world do you get sexism out of this.

How often does a prominent player change his name or number? If it is a rule and it is not enforced often if ever, I am sure it is there to protect the NFL and Reebok from losing lots of money.

Just a guess, but it may be mandatory language included in all player contracts per the CBA. In terms of free agency, when a contract expires, the requirement to buy-back jerseys would also expire. Besides, when they leave as a FA, Reebok has a chance to anticipate the change, and reduce/eliminate production of the old jersey until the player re-signs or signs elsewhere.

A trade/mandatory change of number is not in the players control, and as a result, I would guess it's not subject to the same contract language.

As to players benefitting financially from their jersey sales - from the same article

Quote:
When and if the “Ocho Cinco” jersey is approved for on-field use and sale by the NFL, it could be lucrative not only for retailers, Reebok and the NFL, but also for Ocho Cinco. Players receive a portion of the revenue from their jersey sales.
Edit: Just a wild guess, but I'm thinking that if he didn't profit from jersey sales, the change to Ochocinco would never have taken place.

We should start a class action lawsuit and get our money back, plus pain and suffering for the Tony Boselli jerseys. The guy didn't even play.

I would say for the Carr jerseys too, but those were still able to be used with the purchase of duct tape.

I think that if guy changes his name legally, he shouldn't be on the hook for the jerseys that Reebok made. After all, it was their decision to go ahead and make 170000 of them in the first place.

If he signed a contract saying he would reimburse the cost (and I'm assuming he did based on the content of the article), why should a voluntary (albeit legal) name change relieve him of that obligation?
