Fans not familiar with Joe Namath's flamboyant style were mesmerized with the fancy fur coat the NFL legend wore today to Super Bowl, where he participated in the pre-game coin toss.
Forget it. Game's over. Joe Namath's jacket wins the Super Bowl.

As a New York Jet, Namath was tough enough to guarantee a win before Super Bowl III and deliver. He also wasn't afraid to pose in an advertisement wearing women's panty hose. ( Check it out here!)
At 70 years old, Namath is clearly still living up to his "Broadway Joe" nickname.
While his swagger was appreciated by many, Namath's fur coat did draw some Twitter scorn.
I'm not a big PETA guy but I don't agree with what #JoeNamath did to Lassie

Naturally, Joe Namath's coat already has a Twitter account and issued a rebuttal.
First you complained when I wore pantyhose….you folks are not easy to please. #babyitscoldoutside
