Well yeah, $80 is alot to you and me. Shoot though, rarely does an NFL fan get the opportunity to catch a ball, and considering the billions we NFL fans spend supporting the NFL umbrella & our team...I think they should let a fan keep an $80 ball when the opportunity arises once in a great while.
If I ever catch one...they ain't getting it back! I'll run & hide!
If I ever get one, and they force me to give it back I'm gonna see if I can get a receiver to run a post pattern and throw it to them.
