Every legit outfit KNOWS who is allowed to sell their stuff. A quick response after an alert will be needed to stop criminals from choosing this form of theft.

What the heck is happening to our world? It seems that there are crooks and scammers under each and every rock anymore. I guess they don't believe what Karma can do for you.

Nice to know our government has its priorities in order. I'm sure there was nothing more important than ensuring the profits of the NFL.

It seems that there are crooks and scammers under each and every rock anymore. -- Because there are millions of unemployed people they have all day to dream up scams and implement them. Even worse, once they are on the dole we are subsidizing their free time so they can dream up more scams.

(article quote): "Authorities say most of the knockoffs were manufactured in China." ---- And the authentic ones are made where? Not China? Duh. BTW, some 3,000+ SB tickets still available! Does this state REALLY want to host the SB and lose money? People don't even need cable TV in order to watch the game in full HD. Only a $5 antenna pointed towards the Telefarm Towers in Shoreview. The game is FREE.
