Wait a minute…this isn’t a Kevin Smith jersey!

Get a load of this crap:

Kevin SmithLions season-ticket holder Todd Taylor , who commutes from Chicago to attend Lions home games, and his buddy Jim Allen from Royal Oak were stoked when Taylor won a replica Kevin Smith jersey during the Lions’ draft party at Ford Field.

But something was strange about the No. 34 jersey.

The Smith name on the back looked bulky. So they cut it off and were shocked to see the name Jones underneath.

It appears the Lions repurposed some old Kevin Jones jerseys, turning them into Smith jerseys and gave them away to season-ticket holders.

“It was kind of a punch in the stomach,” Allen said.

“Coupled with the frustration of the draft, here is yet another piece of fire thrown in.”

I guess the Lions had to cutback any way they could after paying Matthew Stafford $41.5 million in guarantees.

What I want to know is, who had the bright idea to try and get away with something like this? What, did the Lions think that their fans wouldn’t realize that there were two names printed on the back of the jersey? What a joke!
