People who play video games need to make money somehow so you better by a video game player shirt with the person who plays video games on it so you can share the video game player on your shirt and support them because it's fun to look at the game player and they play games.

Lollin' at anyone paying money for clothes, or also, expressing themselves through their choice of clothing. These are some of the many things that are incomprehensible, to me.

I have, in addition, calculated the Heat Retention Per Dollar metric of football jerseys and determined that they are deeply suboptimal, compared to covering yourself in inexpensive plastic wrap.

No, its Ricky Ortiz and the shirt is cool. But I guess people don't want to buy shirts of fighting game players or something.

Hm, yeah, I can understand that. Though in a way, it doesn't feel much different from webcomic people releasing t-shirts of their designs. If you liked the design and wanted to support the person who made it, then sure, go nuts. Though until, say, small-time sports leagues start printing merch - I guess FGC t-shirts are unusual.

I quickly youtubed him:

The Marn shirt only comes in XXXL. He is shown kicking a dog on it. The type reads "Marn is fat and kicks dogs."

edit: copyright Evil Geniuses.

edit again: I thought of better copy to fit in line with the other shirt: "Dog Kicking at it's finest." Copyright me do not steal.

That shirt ain't that bad, the design is okay and if people ask you about it you can always spin it into a tale of this punk band called EG where the lead singer dive kicks into the crowd and you probably never heard of them they are underground and hip

Although that might be worse. Hipsters are worse than gamers. In fact, you should probably just wear plain grey t-shirts and 501s. That should be an alt costume for Rufus, by the way.

I wrap myself in discarded shopping bags. If you do the math, you'll find that from the fourth layer onward, you may keep all the sweat, but you also keep the heat. >:D

Ya I guess you guys are right. That shirt is loving horrible. Red. The art looks stupid and has some weirdo cross dressing gamer dude who's awesome at finger puzzles or whatever in heels doing some kind of crane kick? How nerdy, hipster and awful. I don't know what I was thinking wanting to buy a shirt.

Lets all talk about how dumb that Sony Smash Bros game is and forget I ever mentioned my peculiar taste in underwear.

Forsooth! Methinks thou art no ordinary talking chicken.

If it has a logo on it, you're selling out. If it has something related to a video game on it, you're a nerd.

You guys really need to keep up on your Official Clothing Rules. It's pretty important. You just aren't going to measure up to my hip standards otherwise.

Why do people buy a shirt like that again? If you want to support, then just go play against him in tourney and compliment his play. Give him a golf clap after every round.

Also, Sony's Smash Bros. game looks okay.

I know you're wrong with regards to SoCal players, and even moreso with regards to the south. This subject came up as a hypothetical before and then eventually reality. I have no loving idea where you play dude but it's the biggest chump thing you can do unless you ham it up and play the 'lol its cool its ironic' card that is doled out so often these days.

But it seems like almost every SoCal player wears some FGC-related shirt, at least to tournaments.

You're wrong and way too upset about this, tons of people wear FG shirts all the time to all the events I go to, including regionals/majors, nobody is pointing and laughing and snickering behind a dude's back about it. Maybe you and your friends are but frankly you're a huge loving rear end in a top hat and I'm sure your friends are representative of that.
