So, you guys will be totally proud of me – I got a friend, who had never watched Sons of Anarchy – to not only watch, but marathon all 7 seasons of the show. He made it through in record time (I think he beat me and I did it in 2 weeks), and one very important debate has stirred between the two of us as a result. Where is Tig (Trager, Kim Coates)’s Men of Mayhem patch? Everyone else has one, so why doesn’t he?
If you’re unfamiliar with how the patches work, the Men of Mayhem patch is earned when a member of SAMCRO completes a kill related to the club. So, thinking through, Tig’s had more than his fair share of kills, right? So where’s that patch? Is there something I missed? Or, is there a requirement to earn the patch – does the kill have to be voted on at the table in order to count toward earning the patch?
How many of Tig’s kills were at the discretion of the club? How many were approved by the President, the VP? Do any of Tig’s kills actually count toward his having that patch? This is where we need your help, SOA Fanatics. Help us end this debate. Did Tig ever earn that patch? And to drive the point, we’ve added a gallery today of Tig from all 7 seasons – you’ll notice that not once in any photo, does his kutte have the Men of Mayhem patch. What’s your take on why?
