|Back of bootleg jersey|
#MetsFansUnited folks, you and I don't see eye to eye on a lot of your stances or ideas(I have made it common knowledge) but this guy is really going overboard. He needs to be reined in a bit. Seriously dude, do some research.
Want to teach @BraingamesLI about the central fund? Or how road teams split the gate when they visit other ball parks? Hmmmm one of the local minor league teams in NYC is owned by the Mets too. But let's get to the meat of this post. This guy wants you to buy jerseys being sold by criminals. The people that sell these bootlegs are into human trafficking, terrorism, money laundering, human rights violations and more. But let's stick it to the Wilpons buy buying overseas.
From Complex.com. There is a great video on there about this topic too... Link is at the bottom of this post.
Yep a victimless crime here folks. "Hey Wilpons, we are really showing you!!! Who cares about real crime instead of the perceived crime of you guys not caring about a team that we can really walk away from if we want to." Too bad that the victims of counterfeiting can't walk away from it.
What about a person who buys something counterfeit online?
What about the workers that have to make these bootlegs? What about the kids in the sweatshops?
Yep. So worth buying a bootleg to show the Wilpons that you want them to be better owners.
Consumers still tempted by the flash of wearing a designer logo from their arm by any means can consider a question Elia poses: “If you find a fake Louis Vuitton for $26,” she asks, “what is the human cost?”Read more of this story from Complex here
So, please tell me how this shows the Wilpons?
