Banned NFL jerseys list causes uproar
Advertisements [?]
What a bunch of idiots.


This week, the list of objectionable phrases that you couldn't put on the back of a personalized jersey at surfaced, and it caused quite a stir. Among the banned terms: Pimpjuice, Barf, 420, Budweiser, He Hate Me, Dahmer, Carruth and even Dome.

Several internet blogs ran with the list of more than 1,100 banned phrases, and it caused outrage among gay-rights activists when they learned that "gay" was among the banned terms.

And the NFL responded, removing the phrase from the list Thursday, certainly good news to fans of former NFL players Ben Gay and William Gay and current Patriots cornerback Randall Gay. "Tongue," however, remains on the list, which is sure to disappoint fans of the Jets' Reggie Tongue.
