“We know that children love wearing their Patriots jerseys, but may not understand why parents don’t want them wearing their Hernandez jerseys anymore,” said New England Patriots spokesperson Stacey James. “We hope this opportunity to exchange those jerseys at the Patriots ProShop for another player’s jersey will be well received by parents.”
I definitely would trade in my kids jersey for another players jersey. I know that Hernandez hasn’t been found guilty of anything yet, but the accusations and all the media surrounding it is enough for me to trade in that jersey.
What a great plan by the Patriots.
