    The word "official" tells me that it's probably not legit.

    And when their main banner at the top of the page spells it with 3 Fs, then I know it's not legit. Also, beware of any city whose "Contact Us" doesn't give you a real address.

    The site is clearly not legit. The Patriots ProShop is the official (with 2 f's) merchandise store of the Patriots. Since the site is not legit, you can probably bet the merchandise is not legit. I actually can understand people buying knockoff merchandise when it is available for cheap dollars but considering the prices this site is charging, I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't just go straight to the NFLShop or Patriots Pro Shop.

    No Jersey Selected

    I ordered a hockey jersey from a site like that once. It will take a few weeks to get a jersey since its shipping from Hong Kong. The quality, for me, was good. Name spelled right, good stitching and what not. However, I have heard horror stories about those places; misspelled names, numbers upside down, falling apart the first time it gets washed.

    If you don't want to pay Reebok $90 for a replica that will be outdated in a few months I can't blame you, but these places are pretty buyer beware.

    They misspell Patriots on the picture with TB on the front page...it says Official "Patroits"....

    Stay away from that site.

    I don't understand. Why don't people just buy from nfl.com or the proshop? or a retail store. Why even bother going on those sketchy sites. If it's to save a little cash, why don't you just save up until you can buy a legit jersey.

    I wouldn't trust that site with a 10-foot pole. They offer Bodden, Moss, Haynesworth and Maroney jerseys, etc., etc. at the same prices as those of current players. Misspellings are a dead giveaway. Idiots.

    Good insight here. As the saying goes buyer beware.

    Spells like China too. I see these sorts of operations all the time on ebay.
