BERG models new Dirty Coast T-Shirt

The Big Easy Rollergirls were guest models for Dirty Coast Press newest t-shirt, The 12th Man, photographed by Zack Smith.

There is a reason why the Superdome is feared by other teams. It is the fans, the 12th man. The question isn’t “how ya gonna clap?”, its “how damn loud can you be?”

Printed on tri-blend, this Saints pride shirt comes in all sizes for men and women and is only $25.

The 12th man is a term commonly used to describe the fans within a stadium during football (soccer) or American football games. Since most football leagues allow a maximum of eleven players per team on the playing field at a time, the term denotes the attempt of a team’s fans to help their team. In American football, the term is trademarked by and originated with Texas A&M University in 1922.
