This probably isn’t the best thing to wear when trying to adopt a puppy.

How could we NOT post the image of the Simpsons Super Bowl commercial? How many jersey fouls are there in here? Plenty! From invalid numbers, to jerseys with logos and not numbers on the front, to Moe wearing a Vick jersey – all kinds of fouls are represented here. Kudos for the Lions jersey though.

Rather than point them out, share your favorite Simpsons Jersey Foul in the comments.

I know it’s the playoffs and all, but I’m sorry Marc-Andre – a football helmet has no place on the ice. You look ridiculous. Also, you’re French Canadian. Do you even know the rules of American Football?

This one comes to us courtesy of Chuck who notes that “if you really love her, buy your woman a new jersey.” There’s no reason your wife/girlfriend should have to settle for your hand me downs.

Today’s Jersey foul comes to us from the national championship game between Auburn and Oregon. As the TV kept flashing shots of Cam Newton’s Mother, Jackie Newton, everybody at home had to be screaming FOUL!

Are those rhinestones, or is that just Glitter paint? I can’t tell and I don’t care – it’s a foul either way. Jerseys just shouldn’t sparkle. Sadly, I don’t think that’s going to prevent this trend from catching on. The Twitters seem to be all abuzz about Jackie’s jersey, and that makes me sad.

There’s several fouls happening in this shot, but you’ve gotta give them credit because it’s still pretty damn hilarious. Looking at this picture makes me wish that Tiger Woods wore a jersey. I’d have enough content to keep this site running for years.

Today’s first jersey foul comes to us from Detroit – because that’s where I live and I go to lots of Wings games. It’s also a sign that we need more submissions. So start sending pictures of offending jerseys to photos@jerseyfoul.com or hit up on twitter: @jerseyfoul with a link and description. We’ll gladly link back to your twitter page or blog. The 2nd one is kind of sort of Detroit related, so I couldn’t really not throw it in could I?

Hey Penguins fans, I know most of you are only bandwagon fans who have no idea what icing actually is, but come on people. A football jersey has no place at a hockey game. What’s that old saying? Wearing a football jersey to a hockey game is like bringing Michael Vick to a dog race. It’s not a good idea. To his credit, at least it was a Pittsburgh vs. Detroit game.

On to part two. Yes Shanahan played for the Rangers, and seeing how he recently retired I’m hesitant to call foul, but what the hell is this thing? I’ll also give a pass to the lady in the Gretzky jersey next to him because, well, he’s Gretzky.

Keep those submissions coming, or I’m going to have to keep attending Detroit sports events – and nobody wants to go to a Pistons game.

Ok there’s no actual “foul” here, but this picture is still pretty foul itself.   Technically there’s nothing wrong with the Jets Jersey, but there’s still enough wrong with New Jersey that we felt like we had to include this one.  Maybe we should call this one a PR foul.  Come on, you own the Jets, what are you doing being photographed with Snooki? Karma noticed. The Jets lost this one 10-6 to the Dolphins.  Maybe next time they’ll get her a Giants jersey.

This one just happened to sit in front of me at the Detroit Lions thanksgiving day game – against the Patriots – two teams for which Hines Ward has never played.  I was tempted to lay into her for being on the bandwagon, but I take pity on all football fans in Detroit.  Haven’t they been through enough?  Maybe she just couldn’t bear to be seen in a Lions jersey – and who could blame her?  I’ll let this one off with a warning.
