Would this be a "stab in the back" ?

    A friend of mine is contemplating getting a Lofa Tatupu jersey, although he's a Pats fan. He (and myself I guess for that matter) love the way the guy plays, and with his connection to the Pats (father Mosi, and born in NE), he thought it wouldn't be a big deal. Would this be considered a stab in the back to Patriots Nation in your opinion?

    If he likes the guy, he likes the guy. I wouldn't get anything non Patriots but that's just me. I have no problem with Patriots fans liking players from other teams . . . it would be different if he rooted for the Seahawks over the Patriots.

    If you wear a team's shirt it shows you follow the team -- and that you like whatever player it is. You can't wear a Seahawks shirt and not advertise your support for them. I have no problem with your friend rooting for the Seahawks; but I root for the Pats.

    Did we have a shot at Lofa in the draft? Who did we take in that round, whatever it was, instead of him?

    He was a second rounder and we traded out of the second round.

    For me the answer is yes. I'm happy for Lofa and it was fine seeing Mosi and mom wearing Lofa's shirt at the Super Bowl but, any time I see someone around here wearing any NFL gear that isn't Patriots gear they get a dirty look from me. :p

    He was selected before we made the trade. We would have had to use a first round pick on him. Hndsight says he might have been worth it,but at the time it was a tremendousreach for the Seahawks IIRC.

    Why would it denigrate the Pats in any way? It's not like Lofa is a guy who has a negative history regarding the Pats.
    I feel that males much over their teen years shouldn't wear any football jerseys with other guys names on the back anyway.

    HA!! Now that is funny! I agree with the person who said to get a Mosi throw back jersey....kill two birds with one stone.

    On a side note, it sucks that this is all we have to talk about........:(

    I see no problem with it. I myself sport a throwback Tomlinson powder blue jersey, a black Vick jersey, and I am looking at either a Larry Fitzgerald or Anquan Boldin jersey. To me, unless its a Manning, Jets, Phins or other rival jersey, you can show respect to other players, as long as on Game Day, you sport the Pats colors. On a game day, I sport my Pats gear.

    Yeah a stab in the back to us. We don't need any AFSt!nk pretenders wearing our jerseys.

    Who are you really, why would a Seahawks fan come to a Patriots message board to complain. Are you PatsWickedPissah, you seem to invade the same threads.

    First of all this is crazy

    Second of all no it's not a 'stab in the back'

    People show loyalty to their teams, no doubt but for me the only time I wouldn't wear something non patriot if it had been presented to me if it was The Steelers, Jets, or the Dolphins.

    Those are the teams I hate most, I prolly wouldn't wear anything by the Giants or Panthers either.

    Also didn't realize the kid played for UMaine, how does a school like UM get a player like that, then for him to leave a school that gave him a chance to play for the big time at USC, now that would be stabbing someone in the back.

    I DEFINITELY wouldn't wear a Seahawks jersey, Tatupu or otherwise... because the uniform is the most foul-looking in the entire history of the NFL, if not sports in general.

    That's a good idea. Maybe someone at the metal hospital will do just that.
