New Rule: Team apparel can only be sold in team colors.
I'm not just picking on the Sox. Check out all of these acts against God:
Then you must like the Braves, Cubs or Pirates, and are dying to wear their colors on the hat of the most hated franchise in all of baseball, right?
Can someone please explain how buying a team's hat with another team's colors on it makes even one small bit of sense? Do you like both teams? Do you wear it only when the two teams play each other? What takes precedence, the logo or the colors?
Look, I understand the financial reasons a team has to bastardize their logo by sewing it onto a million different hats. More unique items translate into more sales. There are some very stupid people out there who probably want a Yankees hat to go with every outfit they own and are not ashamed to look like a complete and utter douchebag while doing it.
But here is a short message to those dummies and others who have bought branded merchandise in non-official team colors:
You are suckers.

Sales guy #1: Well, we could make it cheaper, sir...
Executive: You're fired.
Sales guy #2: We could try to increase our global distrib-
Executive: Great idea! Just kidding, you're a moron. Next?
Sales guy #3: Well, we could make stuff in different colors...
Executive: Brilliant! We'll put out a never ending stream of new colors and some idiots are bound to buy them!
