Live and let die.
I think the problem is the seller is claiming they are authentic when they are not. If he was up front and said they were fake then it wouldn't be an issue (copyrights aside). But if people are buying these jerseys thinking they are real, only to have them fall apart later, then that's a problem.

OP, how much was he selling these jerseys for? Full price of an original or was it a big discount?

Why do people want real authentic jerseys for? I can't see the benefit in it unless you're getting them autographed.

Any grown man who wears something with another mans name on the back already looks like a fool.

A lot of these 'counterfeit' goods, whether if its jersey's, purses, or dvd's are used to support a whole chain of underground criminal organizations including terrorist groups.
Don't think we should be encouraging these types of activities on our soil.
W5 and other investigative shows have done stories like these before, and the organizations that make and supply the fake goods are linked to lots of terrorist groups.

When I asked if they were authentic he said yes but it was only after I confronted him that he admitted that they were "knockoffs." They are "Reebok" NHL jerseys and look pretty darn real. To me they are counterfeit and I don't buy this whole knockoff non-sense. They have the Reebok trademark right on them so how could he claim "knockoff?"

It came to my attention after I took one of his jerseys to a reputable seller after the crap started falling apart on me. I demanded a refund and got it. I also had my Ipod record the entire conversation where he admits to selling phoneys.

What you guys think about it?
do you not understand what "knock-off" means?

It means fake

I get that him telling people they are authentic is a dick move, but I doubt he's 100% a dick.

Hopefully he's selling them for a significant discount from the regular price these jersey's go for. I bought a knock off Jay's jersey as I only go to watch maybe 2-3 games a season so I couldn't justifying spending $100 to get an authentic one that I will most likely get ketchup all over. I knew what I was getting into, so no harm done.
