    Boy What a disappointment!!! I knew I was ordering a replica but I sure wasn't expecting heat pressed vinyl name and numbers! I ordered a $100 jersey from Sports Authority and was expecting it to at least somewhat resemble what is being worn on the field but this is not even close. Over the course of the last few years I was able to order Reebok replicas with sewn on numbers for like $50 and they were far more authentic looking than this jersey will ever be. Buyers beware that apparently you need to order a $300+ Nike jersey to get anything remotely close to resembling what the players are actually wearing this year on the field.:hump:

    $100 for a jersey is too much for me. Hell, the $79.99 price tag the old Reebok ones were too expensive too (and of course I still own a Henne and Marshall one).

    I'm not really a fan of the new Nike jerseys. I like the colors better because they seem to pop more but the jerseys just seem to look cheap to me :idk:

    I bought three screen printed Nike Miami Dolphins T shirts from a local mall, and after one wash the screen print was faded and almost cracked looking on two of them. The only one that still looks good is the one made on a "DRY FIT" shirt. I feel like Nike rat f***ed me. The shirts were like thirty bucks each.

    After looking at the descriptions of the three kinds of jerseys you can get on Nike's website, it sounds like the "Limited" jersey (for $135) would be a decent comparison to what they wear on the field, if you don't want to shell out $250 for an authentic. For $35 extra, it looks a LOT better than the "Game" replica jersey.

    If it said "replica" in the description, you should have known this. The semi-authentic ones will say "EQT" or "Premiere" (or whatever Nike is calling them now). Replicas will always have screen printed numbers in every sport.

    Mine did the same. I have the dri-fit shirt and shorts and they look the same as the day I bought them. I had to screen printed shirts and the print on the front has cracked or fell off and it looks all faded but the Nike logo on the sleeve is fine. I am going to exchange them but it's like how the he'll do you wash these things with out them falling apart.

    I'll buy my Tannehill jersey and Dolphin gear once they change the logo & jersey. I remember how much it sucked buying all kinds of gear when they changed the logo the last time. I'll hold out til next offseason to stock up.

    Return it and inform them if there's any problem or handling charges you will start bad mouthing their fins jerseys online wherever those products get rated by users (with accompanying incriminating photos of how bogus they are).

    If they are that poorly made, then return them and badmouth them online. They should not continue to sell crap.

    To be honest, I would just go Chinese. You can probably find a decent, plain jersey to start with and then once you get it you can find a shop to add the tackle twill bits to make it look real. I can't stand screen printed jerseys. They're great for kids but no adult should have one if they plan on keeping it nice for a long time.

    It's funny but I bought from some China site recently -- I got an Orange Dansby jersey, and a "Home" Vontae Davis jersey. Within days of receipt, Vontae was relegated to the slot. I probably don't need to tell you about my Brandon Marshall or Ronnie Brown jerseys.

    I like the new jerseys, my daughters need new jerseys thinking Tannehill and Wake. I will probably get a Tannehill or I was thinking a Clay or Miller to be different. The only thing that sucks is they are changing things next year.

    Go to tarajersey.com, you can get any jersey you want for 42 dollars. It takes like 2 or 3 weeks to get here from China, but they are authentic jerseys and look great!

    I got my Brandon Marshall white and Reggie bush orange from a china site last. They were well made and cost me under $70 total. No way I dish out $200+ on authentic jerseys. Especially for players not guaranteed to be on the team in 2 years.

    The crazy thing about Nike is that they are supposed to be offering 3 different types of jerseys. The "Game" jersey which has the iron on numbers, nameplate, and logos, the "Limited" jersey which has sewn on numbers, nameplates and logos, and the "Elite" which are the game jerseys.

    The problem as of right now the "Limited" jersey is actually limited as to which teams/players you can get that style of jersey in and they are not customizable. Unfortunately the Dolphins do not even have one on their website. For the records sake according to NFL.com neither do the Ravens, Bengals, Broncos, Colts, Chiefs, Raiders, Chargers, Titans, Cardinals, Falcons, Panthers, Giants, Eagles, Seahawks, Rams, Buccaneers, and Redskins.

    In fact the only "Limited" jersey's that are available according to NFL.com are; Fred Jackson, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Josh Cribbs, Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, Matt Shaub, Maurice Jones Drew, Tom Brady, Mark Sanchez, Troy Polamalu, Brian Urlacher, Devin Hester, Julius Peppers, Jay Cutler, DeMarcus Ware, Tony Romo, Miles Austin, Jason Witten, DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant, Matthew Stafford, Aaron Rodhers, Clay Matthews, Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, Christian Ponder, Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen, Percy Harvin, Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham, Mark Ingram, Daren Sproles, and Frank Gore.

    However, if you go to nike.com they have "Limited" jerseys, for all of the teams many with multiple players however they still don't have customizable one's.

    How the hell is this possible that some items are available on certain websites while others are not and no customizable "Limited" jerseys are offered? I should also note that the Reggie Bush "Limited" jersey isn't even available on miamidolphins.com. What a cluster ****. The NFL and Nike need to get their **** together.

    this + the fact that the Dolphins will have new jerseys/logo next year makes me think anyone who buys a jersey this year is off their rocker

    This. I've been patiently waiting on the release of the limited jersey, but there has been a big delay on them. They are rolling new ones out weekly at this point and they've already got the Bush one on the Nikey sight. Long appears to be coming soon, but I am waiting on Tannehill. Just be patient, wait for the limited, shell out the extra cash, and there'll be no need for bitching and moaning.

    From the description it sounds like only the numbers are stitched on.

    I just bought a heap of jerseys from china. Got 11 of them delivered to Australia for $240. 1 x wake, 1 new style tanny, a pouncey and 8 others from different teams including baseball shirts. All numbers and names are sewn on and for the $, they look pretty good. The only thing I am not a big fan of is the new replica nikes. I prefer the older style and cut. The new style sizing seems a bit smaller compared to the old reebok knockoffs.

    website is www.jerseys21cn.com

    there after sales communications are excellent. If they are out of stock they eemail you and keep in contact during the sales procedures.

    A few years back I bought an authentic Ronnie Brown jersey for a tad over $20 (this was while he was in his prime) from a Chinese website. It was fantastic, they still sell authentic replicas for the same price.

    If it's made in China, it's not authentic.

    Not true at all. Nike Game jersey is screen print 100$, the Nike limited jersey is semi sewn (just 1 layer not double or triple as some teams have), the Nike Elite http://www.nflshop.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12772505&cagpspn=pla&CAWELAID=1307901293 is the highest priced 2-300$ which is equal to a 100% authentic jersey featuring all features like sweat pockets, triple twill kiss-cut numbers and name ex... They are nothing like whats worn by players, nor even close. But for whats avaliable for retail I would save all money and buy a cheap game worn jersey by a lesser player, this way you get great quality and cool hit marks.

    Shame your that broke UK. I feel for you. Maybe use it on food or something. For someone who makes crazy money at the age of 25 I can blow 1,000$ on a jersey and not take a hit. And thats something to be said in a horrid U.S economy.

    College degrees pay off people!

    $200 is awful for anything sports-gear related. Can we have your job to help pay for this stuff?

    It has **** to do with being broke. Some people have different priorities over others.

    One of the many reasons I refuse to buy the new jerseys. IMO the best jerseys are teh old Wilson, RA, Starter, and NIke authentic jerseys from the 1990's. They were heavy mesh with everything sewn. I have a Dan Marino Wilson game equipment (authentic) jersey from the 1996 season. It is in GREAT shape (I had one in HS and then bought another one brand new on ebay a couple years back...it was still in the original packaging). I have worn it 5 times I am looking to sell it along with my old Marino books. I will post the jersey in another thread (looking for $125 shipped).
