This is sad
I am putting up for sale all my RUTGERS paraphernalia that is one (Or 2) size too small.
About us page
Founded by Jason Lansing, Austin Pomerantz, and Hunter Pomerantz, along with athlete-founders Charles Matthews and Zavier Simpson, The Players Trunk is a platform for former college athletes to capitalize on the gear they earned during the duration of their college career. This marketplace houses player-owned, game-issued/worn gear, directly from the player.
“Gear they earned”?
I guess the scholarship and free education they received wasn’t enough, so they have to sell all of the free gear they’re given.
Pretty sad indeed. Not shocked Simpson is behind this, after the incident he was involved in and got away with this winter.
The prices are very good , especially considering it is unlikely fans could find these just walking into a store or even on general websites.
I have zero issues. Football players and basketball players generate a ton of revenue, probably at a big multiple to the value of their college education
I have one of those Rutgers issued vest, I do not blame him for selling it, terrible cut and fit.
The problem with this is.....basketball players are too dam tall.
College athetic departments (including Rutgers) have sales and auctions for these items every year to raise money. This is former players doing the same thing to earn a few dollars on some ugly crap that they will never wear again.
Just what I was thinking. But, I guess suddenly capitalism is a bad thing.
You mean that icy road thing? C'mon.. that was a whole lotta nothing... unless we get into the "loan" of the car thing... his lying about being the driver was a little strange unless he thought he was doing something wrong.
The gear bag was a good buy for someone... though they did not mention its size.. if it is a small one then price $50 was just okay.
You forgot the driving under the influence and getting away with it thing.
Cant really say I have an “issue” with it but still think it’s pretty sad. You would think these players would be proud of their alma mater and want to hang on to that type of stuff, or continue to still wear it.
It's the new world order.
looking at big picture it is sad that most of these athletes have a false sense of what their earnings power will be thru basketball or football.
D still plays ball overseas (he's been pretty successful by and large)...was scheduled to play for Jimmy V before an unexpected knee issue held him out.
I've got no issue at all unloading some of his old gear to put some money in his pocket. We all do it whether it's a yard sale, DeClutter or some other app based vehicle.
While I was President of the CC, countless players donated game worn gear to me for use at auction. This is just an extension of that. I hope it catches on, because I'd definitely be a buyer for the right items!
I’m getting the feeling that not everyone knows what the word sad means.
Agree and once again....Willis did run a 4.3
Don’t assume that every player dumps the entire accumulated gear (which is a LOT).
Need EO to sell his so I have an O jersey to cheer on CO
If Brian Leonard sold some of his old Rutgers clothing, I could certainly see why. Nothing probably fits him. If they hadn’t said who he was on The Birthplace show on BTN, I would never imagined it was him. He looks like a completely different person since his Rutgers and NFL years
As did Teel lol...
Lol, exactly. I can't wear any of his stuff. As for being sad- no. I see he isn't selling his actually jerseys. Just practice crap. And even if it was game jerseys, its his to do what he wants. Everyone should be less judgmental.
