Sometime here we will sit down and get to work on a complete list of ammendments to the Jersey Foul Bill of Rights. As we've stated before, we get countless questions asking if this or that is a jersey foul.
One question that has rolled into our inbox quite a bit the past two days concerns Marc-Andre Fleury. He recently did a meet and greet at Franklin Regional Middle School on behalf of a charity and wore his jersey but adorned a hood over it, obstructing his name:
Now the hood is a clear violation of the sixth ammendment on the JFBOR. But we're pretty sure the next ammendment we'll add will be a players exemption. As far as we're concerned, they can do whatever they want with their own jerseys. If Fleury wants to show up with a tutu (the dress, not the Nashville Predator) and a Steelers helmet, awesome. It's his right. He's the reason you want to buy a Fleury jersey. He can do what he likes with it.
This next foul, needs no clarification. In fact it's a double foul almost. EN reader Jenni Propst attended last night's Lightning-Hurricanes game and was kind enough to send us this:
-Seriously? "Monkey?" As if that wasn't bad enough, this individual has chose to use Wayne Gretzky's No. 99 as well. You might not like Gretzky, but his number is retired league wide. Have some respect for it.
