Have Too Much Disposable Income This Holiday Season?

FOX Sports is actually selling this Philadelphia Eagles “Cleatus Robot“ action figure. Now, if you’re anything like me, you DESPISE this robot with a passion for which words cannot express. I’m quite sure there isn’t one person in my circle of friends who finds this robot fun or amusing. With each passing year, I find myself growing more and more irritated. Why a robot?? And why must you force me to watch him doing knee bends, or the electric slide, or tussling with the Burger King???

Anyway, this annoying staple of the FOX NFL broadcast can be had for the low, low price of $30. Sure, you COULD provide 210 meals for hungry American families, but just look at this piece of high quality PVC plastic, complete with fully articulating joints!

Not only is this a horrific gift idea, but it’s grossly overpriced. So that got us thinking – what other terrible/stupid/overpriced NFL items are awaiting your hard earned gift-giving dollars?

Actual Description: "The tie boasts a luxurious 100% woven silk construction and is boldly emblazoned with the team logo and colors."
Stu from Accounting (you know, the one who’s socially awkward, makes uncomfortable jokes, and smells like Italian meats) is the only one getting a kick out of this revolting gift. And honestly, you'd have to be really, really emblazoned to think this is a good purchase.

Ladies, now sleep with TWO losers tonight!

Not guaranteed to prevent your season or home from going down in flames.  And, really, is there a better way of saying "Our family is tacky as fuck"?

“He’s almost 49 yards tall!”

For some reason this is being displayed with a JP Losman jersey. He played for the Las Vegas Locomotives last season.  Let’s hear it for the Marketing Department everybody!
