Aaron Rodgers knows better …
By now the majority of football fans everywhere have heard of a recent picture “tweeted” by the 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick wearing a Miami Dolphins hat.
While this makes for rather awkward news, it does create an interesting thought matrix as to whether or not other quarterbacks around the league would be so daring. If so, Aaron Rodgers would definitely NOT be on the list.
Both sides of this issue are crystal clear and are understandable, which makes a story such as this somewhat interesting to be honest.
On one hand, we all have a right to look and wear whatever we choose, regardless of “star” status, race, etc. On the other hand, why in the world would a player (especially one of Kaepernick’s stature) want to bring a potentially questionable light on himself in a way that surely isn’t viewed as positive by the 49ers nation?
It’s one thing to wear the logo or colors of another team in another league, yet to represent another team in the same league would just make everyone wonder. Is this made to be more of an issue than it probably is? Maybe, but it still begs the why question. Come on Colin, a little common sense goes a long ways.
Now getting back to Rodgers, how would the Packer Nation react to him wearing anything other than Packers or Brewers? Better yet, when have you EVER seen Rodgers wearing anything but Packers or Brewers? The moral of the story here is, is it a big deal, probably not. But why on earth would you want to give fans and the media alike any reason whatsoever!
What do you think Packers Nation? Sure we have a right to wear whatever we want but would it be a big deal if Rodgers was wearing another team’s colors?
