I'm A Plugger Too
All too true! My old jersey was a Sand Stretch - and it was a chore to get it over the shoulder pads even back in the day. After I graduated and my upper body filled out, it fit just about right. There would have been no way to wear it with full pads, though. Plus, I retired that old shirt because the threads were wearing out, and the seams were stitched to allow stretching. I think the fabric will last forever, though.
Some years later, I special ordered an authentic KC Chiefs jersey - this was when all you could get were copies with Derrick Thomas, or Joe Montana or some other popular player. This jersey was made by an NFL supplier. It's still a little baggy even today.
