    Don't plan on buying a Ron Mexico #7 Falcons jersey...

    Falcons | League Clamps Down on 'Ron Mexico' Jersey Sales - from www.KFFL.com
    Thu, 14 Apr 2005 21:17:26 -0700

    Errin Haines, of the Associated Press, reports the NFL has blocked fans from ordering Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick's No. 7 jerseys with the name "MEXICO" on the back. A lawsuit filed last month by a woman who claims Vick infected her with genital herpes alleges Vick went by the pseudonym "Ron Mexico." Vick has said he will fight the charges. The AP reports several customers have gone the NFL's online store recently and attempted to order the No. 7 "MEXICO" jersey, but fans trying to order the customized jersey now get this message: "The personalization entered cannot be accepted." Said NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy: "The jerseys are intended for fans who want to have their name on a jersey. Obviously, this was in direct reference to recent events. We decided it's inappropriate to sell jerseys with that particular name on it."
