A Overwatch team had its jerseys in front of in the competition on stage due to a large "FU (19659004) The Fusion University, the Academy for Pro team Philadelphia Fusion, had to begin their Overwatch match with plain black shirts instead of their new jerseys during the Overwatch counterparts final on May 1
2. All six Players went on stage and played without the normal jerseys worn by others, but given the design used, it's not hard to see why there might be a problem.  Fusion University's official Twitter account shared a picture of the jerseys on the morning of the contest and confirmed that the outfits were banned by the organization Overwatch Path to Pro for "possibly too hot" and said that the "FU" jerseys were available soon  BREAKING – FU jerseys of @owpatchtopro

Dot Esports followed the tweet and received a statement from the Fusion staff members the jerseys confirmed were indeed banned and any doubt removed that this could be a joke or a clever game to build the community.
While the "FU" on the front of the jerseys is a clear reference to Fusion University's name, it seems that Blizzard may have taken it differently, or at least that it could be interpreted in such a way. It's also hard to imagine that the design is not at least somewhat intentional, but the Fusion employees quickly gave the tweet a few examples of inconsistencies with what Blizzard allowed and prohibited. Joe Marsh, the CFO for both Philadelphia Fusion and Fusion University, shared the pics under this other questionable language that went unscathed alongside the banned jerseys. @BLT @ Tran @elk @ZackLombardo_ @crakinlakin @whoru @ Alarm721 @Beasthalo @zerg @rownplb @FusionUni ? 1945 pic.twitter.com/A4rN13dfUa

The belt buckle in the bottom left corner too See, one that many Overwatch players will recognize instantly especially those who play as McCree. On the belt buckle of the hero is written "BAMF", another acronym that can hardly be interpreted otherwise than what almost everyone knows.
Fusion University today had to play in their black shirts instead of jerseys. We'll wait and see what their next outfit will look like when it's revealed.
