That looks REALLY bad. At least at NASCAR, those guys are getting paid to represent the company logos that they wear. There are people that have all of these patches, and don't even represent the makers of the patches. Ummm okay. To me it looks like they are trying to tell the world," Hey, look at me. With all of these patches, I MUST be good." Sorry, I don't impress that easily. Honorable ridicule for all of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu players out there. Let it go fellas, just let it go.
