PostSubject: J O Sports owner guilty of faking gamers   Thu Dec 15 2011, 10:09

I have been following this story in the US for some time now. For those who don't know J O Sports, they have, over the last few years, won contracts with around 14 NFL teams to sell their gamers. The owner, Jarrod, has pled guilty to doctoring jerseys from 2004 to 2008 and faces 20 years in jail and a $250,000 fine.

J O Sports continues to trade and appears to have convinced the authorities that current practices are above board, but many NFL teams are cutting ties.

Here's a very good article from the Chicago Tribune

I noticed earlier in the week, 2 Bills jerseys on ebay from JO Sports, with the Toronto Series patches on them, and looked faked. Like this one - def fake patch:
