    The short sleeve jerseys make them look like volleyball players! Why not just cut off the sleeve and keep the compression concept, it makes zero sense to have sleeves, plus just like Dennis Scott said “You don’t spend all summer in the weight room to put on a T-SHIRT!” Bring the sleeveless back!

    Nonetheless, GREAT MESSAGE AND CONDOLENCES TO THOSE IN OKLAHOMA.

  3. I like the short sleeve jerseys. Its a nice change of pace from the norm. But i would do something different with the designs. Nevertheless, this is a terrific cause for a great community. God bless everyone in Oklahoma.
