It’s not a new idea, but the old burning-of-the-jersey can still be pretty entertaining. This time, Wes Welker is the one who’s the focus of Patriots fans’ ire. Welker signed a two-year, $12 million deal with the Broncos on Wednesday, not only leaving New England but also leaving to sign with Peyton Manning, one of New England’s least-loved opponents. New England fans, as to be expected, have decided to purge their closets accordingly. The fan in the video below seems to have a problem with Welker’s drops in recent seasons, as well as his inability to win a Super Bowl in New England. This fan decided to crack out the lighter without much regard for his backyard table — and in front of a child, no less (warning — some language). And that’s how it goes. Hope you didn’t need that $85 for something else.
