We cannot stress this even remotely enough. People are going absolutely batshit insane over Jarryd Hayne‘s push to become a fully fledged NFL star.
“I’ll be honest with you, I’ve never seen anything like it before. It’s crazy. The jerseys are custom made and they are going off the shelves. We started making some custom jerseys for him about two weeks ago just prior to the first preseason game.
“But the media following and buzz around him have people interested. I’ve made about 10 or 15 custom jerseys myself.”
“It’s grown men, it’s women. Everyone wants a piece of him at the moment.”
“For now we’re making that many customisations that we’re trying to get ahead. But Nike are in the work of having his jersey mass produced to go on sale.”
“Of course the final signing would be the Chargers game in our house on the third of September. If he makes the squad then Nike will push the button on mass producing those jerseys. We have the jerseys and it won’t be long before we have personal custom items like playing cards and T-shirts.”
And again, we stress, all this for an unproven player with zero experience who had previously never played a game of organised football in his life?
