The bright green jerseys are made by Unifi, who uses the Repreve brand to take plastic bottles and recycle them into fibers.
“Recycling is critical, yet surprisingly only 30 percent of plastic bottles are recycled in the U.S., significantly less than other countries,” Unifi COO Roger Berrier said. “Together with the Detroit Lions, we are working to highlight the ease of in-stadium recycling and showcase the benefits of recycling. Hopefully franchises from all major sports will follow the Lions’ lead and join the #TurnItGreen movement.”
Cutler threw two interceptions, including a pick-six, in the loss and dropped to 1-11 all-time against the Packers.
“Because Jay Cutler sucks, do our team a favor and burn your jerseys,” the fan says in the video below. “Get rid of them. Let’s send a message to the Bears organization that he sucks and we need to get rid of him. It’s a start to improvement. We also need to get rid of the coaches, but let’s start with Cutler.”
You’ll also notice in the video that this guy makes a Cutler-like bad decision by having his gas can so close to the fire, but that’s neither here nor there. Let’s just watch.
“I’m burning his jersey, but like Jay Cutler, it probably won’t even burn, it will probably just smolder and throw a couple of interceptions,” the man says.
His wife then asks, “Are we Packers fans now?”
“No. But the Bears should fire everybody.”
Dumpster fire. Jersey fire. Fire everybody.
It seems that at the very least, the Bears now have a theme for the rest of the season.
No one is setting Aaron Rodgers jerseys on fire, but it is somewhat surprising that they didn’t all spontaneously combust considering how hot Rodgers got in the first half against the Bears.
