Maybe the dude likes the Dolphins logo... Its just a hat. If Rodgers wore a Vikings hat it would bother me very very slightly. Want to talk about getting pissed off? ....How about Favre in a Vikings uniform, PLAYING for them. Thats a problem. Wearing another teams hat for the hell of it is not.

Whatever dude. Its like Ford firing a guy and then getting pissed because he goes to work for GM a couple of years later.

Every interview with Rodgers back in the day was all about how much he loved the 49ers and wanted to play for them. I gave up being sensitive about stuff like this a long time ago. Why do people care about this stuff?

So no one would have had a problem with Rodgers being photographed wearing a Viking's or Bears hat.OhMyGod WTF Sorry I gotta call BULLSHIT on that.



Obviously, wearing a division rivals apparel is MUCH different than wearing another teams hat that's in a completely difference conference. It's not like he was caught wearing a Seahawks hat or anything.

I don't think 49ers fans were upset that he was wearing a Dolphins hat ... nearly as much as HOW he responded to those who did gripe about it.

Not really. More like a dude from middle management telling the CEO how to run the company. Then when he doesn't get his way, starts bucking the system, going against his bosses' directives, jerking the company around, trying to divide the rank and file to form a mutiny.

Then when he gets shitcanned, pisses his pants to the media and starts sending proprietary industrial secrets to the competition.

All the while being blackmailed to tank his job performance, because of the way he conducts himself in his personal life.

Something more like that.

Actually it is more like a head designer tries to quit Ford to go to GM but can't because of a 5 year no compete clause, colludes with GM, fake retires then fakes a comeback and tries to force ford to drop the non compete clause in his contract.

When they don't, he goes to International Harvester, but gives plans to all Fords new cars to GM and Chrysler.

Then he fake retires to get out of the non compete clause again to go to GM.

Then says they both "made mistakes"

I knew someone would bring this up. First of all, as far as I know you can't retire (real or fake) to get out of a non compete clause. 5 years is 5 years. Second since when are there no compete clauses in NFL contracts? Once a player is no longer under contract with one team he is free to go where he wants except in the case of a trade obviously. For the record car designers leave companies and go to work for the competition all the time. Noted car designer Carroll Shelby went from Ford to Chrysler and then back to Ford. Sometimes there are non compete clauses sometimes not

I didn't bring up the Ford/GM analogy. You have to give me some latitude because it was inadequate to illustrate what really happened.

Favre was under contract with the Packers until 2011 and couldn't play for any other team without the Packers permission.

Close enough.

For the record, it isn't about the cars.
