What's up with the NFL players putting "sr" on their jerseys?


Recommended Posts

Probably the same as putting "Jr.".

Well, like Seph said, I don't think anyone is going to confuse "Mohamed Sanu Sr." with five year old Mohamed Jr. on the football field...and there really isn't anyone with the same name that he's trying to compete over endorsements with. So my conclusion is that most of them are fucking idiots. If no one came before you in the league, you're Mohamed Sanu. Mohamed Jr. makes the NFL, then he's Mohamed Sanu Jr. to distinguish the two.


Griffey Jr. and Griffey Sr. wore only "Griffey" on their jersey, and they were on the same damn team. Not that any father-son pair will be likely to play in the NFL at the same time.


So it's not really the same as putting Jr. as Jr. is meant to distinguish you from someone who came before you. It is, however, done for attention.
