Crowder claims he did not sell Florida jerseys

Former Florida Gators now Miami Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder took to ESPN on Tuesday to clarify comments he made Sunday about “hypothetically” selling his jerseys while he played for the University of Florida from 2003-04.

“I have all four of them,” he said on SportsCenter, in reference to the home and road Gators jerseys he apparently possesses from the 2003 and 2004 seasons. “My momma has two of my jerseys on her wall in her house, and I have the other two in my house.”

“I was playing off the whole Terrelle Pryor thing when businessmen were buying his stuff,” Crowder clarified. “I was saying that, if somebody wanted to buy my jerseys while I was in school, why can’t I sell them because they’re my jerseys and have my name on the back? When I was at Florida, I made ’55’ a relevant jersey number at Florida, so why couldn’t I sell my jersey when I was there with my name on the back? That was the point.”

Crowder believes the rule on selling your jersey should be simple.

“It’s your possession,” he said. “They give it to you at the end of the year, so you should be able to sell it.”

    Let’s hope that puts an end to that.

    What an idiot.

  3. Ken (CA) says:

    He must have seen my comment on OGGOA about it!

  4. Mike says:

    What a loser. If you’re going to come out and make a statement, take ownership of it, don’t slink away and say you were misquoted.

    • John S says:

      In this case, I’m very glad he backed away from it. I bet Foley is too.

    • El Meester says:

      His quote said “hypothetically” more than once.. He shouldn’t have to clarify ANYTHING.

      Team Channing!

  5. SC Gator says:

    Oh please… anyone getting all upset over what he said obviously has never heard him before. Dude is wonderfully nuts.

  6. JW says:

    This guy’s a real card. As a Dolfan though, I wish he was a better linebacker.
