    Best: 1984 Marino Throwback

    Bought a Pat Surtain jersey which I still have. It worked out nice, because I had 2 years with him there; when he left, Ronnie Brown took it over, which worked because with a hoodie on, from the front it looked like a Brown jersey. Now its a throwback Surtain.

    Also have a Sam Madison and Zach Thomas.

    Ordered a Czonka from China at the beginning of the year; figuring we'd have new jerseys so why buy a new one...and it never came

    I had a Marino one when I was a kid. Obviously outgrew that one.

    I have four now. Ricky and Taylor in teal and Thomas and Wake in white. I regretted the Ricky one because I got that right before he retired the first time. The Wake one is my favorite now.

    when i was a kid and didn't know any better, i would wear lots of jerseys.

    as an adult, i don't wear another man's name on my back.

    the only jersey i actually wear now is #72 and has DOLPHINS on the back instead of a player name.

    People's stance on "not wearing another man's name on my back" I find to be funny. It doesn't mean you idolize them, look up to them or anything . . . it means you are a fan of a football team and that player is one of your favorite players when watching your favorite team play and wearing a jersey is just a way of expressing that. Why people try to overanalyze wearing a jersey to make it seem any other way just seems weird. There is nothing wrong with having a custom jersey like you have . . . but your reasoning that "you don't wear another man's name on your back" certainly isn't proper justification. Why so harsh?

    The reason why I ask is because you definitely aren't the first person that has made that point, and it certainly is your opinion. I was just trying to see if there was something that I was missing in the reasoning. I have a friend that says the exact same thing and says "the only name on my back will be my own". I tell him all the time, yea that sounds tough, but why? He says that's just the way I feel . . . never a clear answer. Maybe I haven't put in the effort to figure out myself but anyways to each his own.

    I like that idea of the #72 jersey that just says Dolphins! Great idea!

    I have a white & a teal Marino - favorites, but mainly retired
    Teal Zach - most worn
    Orange Ricky - Regret this one for two reasons...

    Do you own a pair of levi's ? If so, I bet they have levi strauss' name on the back of them.
