  • Modell’s Sporting Goods forced to donate $500,000 in Patriots AFC championship clothi

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...0034--nfl.html



    Apparently, they spent $500 k on AFC championship gear assuming the Patriots would win and now they have to donate it all.

    Spoiler alert: New England did not win.

    Leagues print gear for both teams every year (the hats and shirts the Broncos were wearing minutes after the game were printed ahead of time, obviously, and the Patriots would have had the same gear if they won), but Modell's wanted the merchandise ready for fans the moment the game ended and paid for it. Denver defeated New England, 26-16, in the championship game, leaving the department store with plenty of stuff nobody wants to buy.

    “We took a tremendous risk, but you know what? People expect us to have the merchandise,” a source told the Boston Herald prior to the game. “We printed up everything: hats, shirts, T-shirts, novelties, pennants — you name it — for men, women, kids.”
    That unsold merchandise will be donated to a third-world country.

    “We’re not allowed to sell it,” a source told the Boston Herald.
    This is probably not the charitable effort New England wants to be identified with.

                  As a donation methinks they can write it off. So they aren't hurting.

                    This is actually kind of sad to me. Some people in third-world countries have a completely backward understanding of US sports. Could you imaging coming to this country with your vast sports knowledge you learned from a tee-shirt to find you've lived a lie?
                    Devastating if you ask me. We should be ashamed. So limit sales only to Boston and its surrounding communities. That would be more fair.

                          A good artist could easily change the "A" in Champs to a "U" making it
