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 [...]

My reaction, who give a rats behind what hat a player wears.

Every team has fans that fans of other teams point to and say "all their fans are assholes" Don't be one of those fans.

I thought these guys had contractual obligations to wear certain hats, etc. as it relates to the NFL. I'm surprise Kaepernick was even allowed to wear anything but a 49ers hat.

As long as it is Nike, they can wear whatever.


As a Packers fan, I'd feel a bit slighted if Aaron Rodgers were wearing a Dolphins hat, but I'd get over it pretty quick. It's just a hat.

I guess it would depend where and why he was wearing it. Especially if it is the off season and its not a team function no biggie to me.

I wouldn't care what cap he wears as long as he doesn't wear it sideways or backwards.

I have almost 50 different hats from various clients in my office. I sometimes pop one on when I take a walk and such during the day. I'm not necessarily wearing the hat to represent anything, I just need it to protect my face from the blazing southern California sun. I suppose some put a lot more meaning into the hats they wear, though.

Let's say we get eliminated from the playoffs. Yeah, I know. Hard to imagine our team shitting itself in the division round, right?

Now let's say Miami is playing Seattle in the Superbowl or something like that. I can't stand Seattle after that Fail Mary situation, just the way they conducted themselves with regard to that "win."

If I see Arodge sporting a Miami cap, supporting Philbin, I have no problem with that.

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?

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.
