    I've been a hardcore Bolts collector for years now., and I can't believe how the NFL can overlook such a obvious flaw on their merchandise......
    Two are so notorious......the Bolts are F'n BACKWARDS on the helmets........:confused::confused::eek::eek:

    The TinyMates are one thing., which is horrible., but F**k..., they F**ked up the 2007 Ladainian McFarlane....the Bolt is BACKWARDS on the helmet on EVERY SINGLE production........
    This really pisses me off how people get our logo so confused......LONG IN THE FRONT....SHORT IN THE BACK.....GET IT RIGHT...G'DAMN IT.....:mad::mad::mad:
    It amazes me how often this is done..I see it all the time...I guess if you're not a fan it could be easy to f**k it up.....I guess...:confused:....drives me insane......

    I hear you, stuff like this bugs me, probably why I hate the current unis with upside down bolts on the arms so much. Every game at the stadium I see someone with a jacked up knock off jersey that just makes me cringe. But hey, it's not mine. I also don't care for jerseys that never existed. I saw a Winslow powder blue that is invalid. He came along after the powder blues, and they didn't do alternates or throwback days when he played, so he never wore that jersey. Or a Fouts on the current jerseys.

    Just my view, no need for anyone to get butt hurt if they have a crappy knockoff or a powder blue Winslow.

    Did that LT figure come with the post season bench?

    Was there one that came with the bike?

    Yea lookin at Riddell mini helm I got a while back and the bolt jags/teeth are backwards.

    Still wearing my 07 reebok rivers jersey.

    I almost had a few extra bucks months ago and was about to buy a decent Gates knockoff authentic for 30$. But I paid my phone bill instead. Was gonna use the money on a door handle but I sold that car.

    I too hate the bolt on the sleeves, when I was still learning the game of football and I was interested in watching a particular player the numbers on the sleeves allowed me to do that. (watching on a tv)

    Imo that sleeve should be the mandatory player number spot not way up on the shoulder pad.

    My buddy gave me this LT McFarlane. Wow, I never looked that close at the helmet. Now I can't unsee it, hiding the helmet under his feet.

    Can the team just go to the original home and away powder blue/ white powder blue jerseys. The same ones they wore 2009. I say take that and make 80's jerseys alt or the 2006 ones.

    Yes., this McFarlane came with the bench....no, there was never one with the bike.
    I always see this particular figure selling in "bulk" quantities....I'm think'n the flawed helmet is the reason why.

    Charlie is one of my favorite Chargers of all time.
    I had a #18 jersey in 1984, when almost no one had actual jerseys.
    Been lucky enough to meet the great man, and I'll always list him among the best.

    But for God's sake, that doll should be burned! What an atrocious pose!
    Looks like he should be wearing a 49ers uniform. No, no, no!!!

    Cool. What did you have for lunch that day?






    j/k - I was in a feisty mood and those details struck me as hilariously unnecessary. :p

    Unnecessary?!? Au contraire! He had me at "door handle."

    Now I'm imagining some poor bastard driving around St. Louis, with a "new" used car,
    but no door handle...just because T-Horse wanted to retain his phone service by paying' a bill...

    Well the guy I sold it to is in fact driving it around without a driver door handle.

    Would it be inappropriate to mention the guy only has 1 arm?

    Driving around jeff city actually. But it's about a wild west here as much as stl as far as relying on help from law enforcement officers.

    Well done and duly noted. In the future I will merely smile and quietly appreciate your intentionally verbose irrelevance.
