08:04 AM ET 07.07 | On Day 1 of the Aaron Hernandez jersey exchange, New England Patriots fans made their voices heard. Hundreds flocked Saturday to Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., to swap out garb emblazoned with No. 81, the digits worn by the team's former tight end before he was charged in June with the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. The exchange, which opened its doors on Saturday and will continue on Sunday, got off to a brisk start. By 11 a.m. ET, more than 500 jerseys -- including 100-plus youth jerseys -- had been traded in, Patriots spokesman Stacey James told NFL.com and NFL Network. As of 5 p.m., those numbers were up to nearly 1,200 jerseys, including 300 in youth sizes, James said. Exchanges also are available online this weekend at the team's official store.

Hard to judge those numbers without knowing how many #81 Hernandez jerseys were sold total over his NFL career.

Did they actually sell a Haynesworth jersey?

They just tie off the sleeves and use them as hot air balloons.

Erased by the team AND the fans. Wonder if this is registering in Hernandez's mind or if he just doesn't care.

Not sure what is the right term to use, but he gives all the signs of someone that just does not care or experience shame or guilt or connect any dots together about consequences and actions.. sociopath, psychopath/ whatever the word is. He seems to be there.

May as well trade them in. They're shot now. (ba-dum-bum).

July 7, 2013  12:29 PM ET

guess a lot of people made bad choices not just the hoody......

sociopath fits it pretty good.

SOCIOPATH: A person with a personality disorder manifesting itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior and a lack of conscience.

PSYCHOPATH: A person suffering from chronic mental disorder with abnormal or violent social behavior.

According to the Pats, they won't let you exchange for a Tebow jersey. Why not? They both have the same chance to see the field for the Pats this year.

As a practical joke they should send them to Vladmir Putin.

He probably bought one already and told his boys " see, this is what I'm talking about. Team. Now go out there and get busy."

Was he there long enough to even have a jersey?

Memo to Aaron Hernandez

Dear Aaron,

Everyone DOES hate you. We're buying back all your fan jerseys. We are editing all the tapes (we're pretty good at that, you know) to remove you. It will be as if you never existed.

Sincerely,
