The Jersey Name Dilemma

So over the course of yesterday (and going into today) there was big deal made at The Phinsider about the Miami Dolphins trading their top wide receiver. Not wanting to touch on that subject with a 39 ½ foot Victory Pole, I did read the fan comments and saw an interesting dilemma that arose for many of them. What are they to do with their Brandon Marshall jerseys now? It is a dilemma that thousands of fans in all sports face every year. Whether it is through trades or free agency there is a good chance that the name on the back of that jersey with your favorite player will not be on the same team when they reach the end of their career. In South Florida those players with longevity like Stephen Weiss, Dan Marino, Jeff Conine, and Alonzo Mourning are rarities. Maybe some fans will get lucky and get players who achieved something that no one on that team achieved before like Pavel Bure and his Rocket Richard seasons. Maybe they get a player who helps on the way to a championship like Pudge Rodriguez. Or you get a player who winds up staying for a long time. Some are not so lucky. Some fans have jersey name criteria or would rather leave them blank or customized to a non-player. Yet at some point you will get a player that leaves or worse, leave on bad terms that makes you want to burn that jersey. So what do the rest of you think, and if you have a story of heartache or joy behind the player name please share.
