THE ITEM

Doug Marrone Signed Authentic Football

THE CURRENT HIGH BID

$16

THE REASON THIS EXISTS

Doug Marrone went 15-17 as the head coach of the Bills in 2013 and 2014. He abruptly quit the team on New Year's Eve 2014. This upset people. When another head-coaching opportunity didn't present itself (whoops), Marrone took a job as an offensive line coach for the Jaguars. He still has that job today and holds strong opinions on hip-hop culture.

WHY YOU SHOULD OWN THIS FOOTBALL

An authentic NFL football costs $99.99 at NFL Shop. If you go to a major retail chain, the price is the same. If you're just looking for a football to throw around at your next tailgate with that awkward brother-in-law, we're talking about a major bargain here. Goes without saying you should own this ball if you're a major Doug Marrone fan.

WHY YOU SHOULDN'T OWN THIS FOOTBALL

If this item strikes you as memorabilia you absolutely need to have, it's a pretty clear sign of a problem. Research oniomania.

FINAL VERDICT

The Doug Marrone football is an authentic football. You can play with it if you need a ball or display at your home if you want to show Marrone loyalty. You should buy this football.
