I think the jams they were referring to were the traffic variety!
I know that, but it's not a "hate" issue.
"Hate" isn't a nice word. I may not like traffic, but I'm as much a part of it as millions of others, and I don't "hate" it.
I know it's strictly the opposite to "love", but "hate" is used in an entirely different way these days.
The joke on the rear of the jersey is a play on words of traffic jams vs jars of jams, and that some people "hate" Marmite.
They don't hate it, they dislike it, or detest it maybe.
Hate is a horrible word and I try never to use it.
