Now at QB for Dallas - Furburger

Ok, so I'm a little behind the curve on this story, but it's still a hoot.

From unmercifully comes this story at It seems that for a while there you couldn't get a customized NFL jersey at the NFL online store with the word "GAY" where the name would appear. GAY appeared on a list of over 1,000 banned words that the online store would not allow. However, until this story ran, if you wanted one that read "BIN LADEN" that was perfectly ok. I guess the NFL was wanting to maintain that lucrative terrorist market, but wouldn't be interested in dollars from the homosexual arena.

The sad thing is that the only reason this even came around as a story is because someone who taught a player on the Patriots wanted to buy his jersey after they won the last Super Bowl. The player's name: Randall Gay. The only reason it appears the NFL even took GAY off the list is because of him.

If you look at the list of banned words on Outsports, there's a number of obvious ones, and some not so obvious. After doing a find, it appears that "FURBURGER" is not on the list. Sorely tempted to splurge on the jersey and then take a photo wearing it and sending it to the dumbasses at the NFL.

Would have to be the Dallas Cowboys since naturally they're...well, you can guess ;-).
