    Hey Fam,

    So I've bounced this off a couple of members here and I would like to see if we can get some cash together and get a Phins Jersey(or bills if you really want to) with BigBry written on it and the number (TBD) to send to his daughter from us. I think it would be a nice gesture and she will always have something that shows her that he was a great guy and we truly are a family on here.

    I would set up a go fund me, but they take a percentage of it so i am leaning towards not doing that. We can set up a paypal or maybe send it to Samphins paypal or mine, I don't mind, I just want everyone to feel safe in donating money.

    The custom jersey's run 300 bucks, so if we can get 30 members to give 10 bucks each, that would work, if we get any extra money left over, we will give it to Leah personally.

    I know some of you will doubt me because I'm a Pats fan. I've been on this board for 7 years and the senior members will vouch for me and @Sethdaddy and @Samphin both are aware of this idea and can also vouch me for me.

    Please either reply here or PM with an amount you think you can donate. I'll keep track of it and once we get close we can start thinking about how to get it to me or Sam.

    Lets see what we can get done guys.

    EDIT: Any extra money raised will be given to the family or charity. We will update the thread as soon as enough money is raised to prevent over-funding.

    Can we also send a bottle of sweet lemonade? Once I get my stolen debit card replaced I'll be down for a donation.

    Two questions:

    How do we know you and/or Sam won't spend it all on booze?
    Do you do PayPal?

    I think everyone here knows that, while a maniac Pat fan, McLovin is a quality dude, and a real part of this community. Pony up brothers and sisters, in remembering BigBry and honoring his family.

    You want us to feel safe Seth so you send a Pats fan asking to donate money to Sam-freaking_Phin!?!?!

    Your marketing tactics blow and are haphazard..........








































































    But **** it, where do I donate?!

    I posted at finheaven. I figured a cross promotion for a good cause like this was worth-while. Besides, is there even any animosity anymore? That was a long time ago. I infrequently pop in at both sites now, as did Bry. Hopefully we can come up with the dough. I kicked in.

    Jersey
    I told McLovin about this already, but we don't need $300. We only need $150 for the jersey. There's no need to get an authentic. The replicas are really good.

    Then, if we end up with more money we can buy something else for Leah's family or donate it to a charity of her choice.

    I have a couple of opinions on the jersey number.

    Between here and Finheaven, Bry had 6800 posts. So I was thinking #68.

    Or if we wanted to keep it strictly ThePhins, he had 5300 posts. So #53.

    Since this gift is from his forum family and will have his forum name on the back, I thought the number could be in reference from his time on the forums as well.

    If it were up to me, I'd go with #53 since he was more well known here and Leah came here to update us on his passing. I have nothing against Finheaven, but he was way more active here and I consider us more of a family.

    Just a thought.

    we can. but i would rather this be an autho. dont dolphin this up, Rock. I know you're used to mediocre. :knucks:

    honestly, how many people do you know have an autho personalized jersey?


    i get where you are coming from though. feed back fam. i vote for autho. i want this to be something that lasts her entire life.



    i'm on board with either. feed back will be nice.



    also, i am not opposed to fronting it and ordering it now.

    lets see how the donations go. Let's shoot for the authentic, though we may be forced into the nice replica. Several fin heaven dudes committed to donating. McLovin, when you order, you will have an opportunity to write a message as a gift. Hopefully you can fit all the donators names.

    As for #, I am thinking 69, as that's what Bry probably would have wanted.

    Jersey
    I'm serious. Nike's replica jerseys are really good. I own a few and so do multiple family members. They don't use old school screen print. It's a high quality silicone, rubbery print. The authentic jerseys are fine, but I don't think they are worth the price. Nike puts these weird looking sweat patches on them. I'm fine if that's the way you guys want to go, I'm just talking personal preference. But factoring price and comfort, replica >>>>> authentic. The authentics are also really heavy.

    As for the number, bry might have wanted 69, but I'm thinking more about his wife and Leah. I don't want to be THAT guy, but they'll be the ones wearing it and I just think it's a bit inappropriate.

    Again, I'm totally on board with what the family here wants. I'm just giving my opinions.

    We're up to 60.00 not including mine.

    Seth, can you work on getting a size or do you think a large will be too big? Even if we just get a picture of Leah or something as not to alude to what we are doing, even though she probably has already read this thread.

    If there isn't enough room on the website to enter the names, I don't mind shipping here and picking up a card and writing it in there and then shipping to her.

    white or teal? I'm thinking teal, home colors.

    Also, what's the temperature on getting a woman's cut? they dont make the elite (autho) in a womans cut so that would settle that debate if we go that route. I still prefer the elite myself.


    Edit: Aqua. my apologies.

    I would get a large. People always wear jerseys loose and usually over a hoodie or something. Think it should be an aqua men's/traditional jersey. Aqua, not teal you gross Pats fan!!

    One thing on the #. If we want to shy away form 69, I think the only other alternative is 72

    This man said teal. Teal! Do you even Fins?!?

    Diet blue is hilarious though.

    Large sounds like a good idea, and definitely aqua.
