    Definitely wasn't his smartest move but I still dont' see what the big deal is. If the 49ers pay him he will be a 49er for life.

    You can't compare sports to business. Not when the major players are kids. In a league where arrests are happening weekly, I'm more than happy with Kaeps big misstep being that he wore an opposing teams hat. You know, one of hte teams he beat last year.

    Sports business is completely unique. Its not comparable. But, I know you will have some sort of retort.

    First off, all but one of the organizations is privately held while the majority of the largest companies in the world are publically held.

    Secondly, and most important is the lifeblood of the league are youths before the age of 30 and they are going to make stupid decisions.

    There are plenty others but I just don't care to think that hard while I'm at my desk.

    So there are not 20 somethings who run their own company?

    Pretty sure the FaceBook dude isn't running around wearing twitter T-Shirts......

    You're being silly if you think the NFL doesn't run itself or view itself as a major corporation.

    Have you seen his physique? If I looked like that minus all the tattoos I'd walk around in the nude.

    Trying to liken "Business" to facebook is foolish. In the majority of situations they are run by old white men.

    Further, the type of atire that is worn by these CEO's is not condusive to advertising for another company. There aren't going to be professional twitter ties or baseball caps that these people are wearing around. The fact that you are trying to compare the two just shows a lack of fundamental understanding of the differences between sports business and all other business. If you really want to compare what a CEO would not wear then it would be more appropriate to say what Jed York would not wear or what John Mara would not wear. Not Colin Kaepernick. So foolish.

    I used CEO as an example....do you think if an hourly employee at FaceBook showed up to work in a Twitter shirt that he would have a job for much longer?

    Point is, if you are employed by one business then you shouldn't be advertising for another, at least not at work or in public....pretty basic.

    If Kaep showed up to 49ers practice in a Dolphins cap then I agree he should get in trouble. He was out with friends at a party and wore a hat that he thought looked good. People buy hats for teams they don't care for at all. I have looked silly numerous times going up to a random stranger saying go 49ers/Braves and have received a response that they don't like hte team just the colors. You are making this an issue because you want to and not becuase it is.

    Don't really care about Kaepernick wearing Phins gear, simply because I don't think it means anything with people my age and younger. I know many people who wear multiple teams hats, they use hats for style rather than fandom.

    Which is exactly what I just said. We know BRule is just stirring to the pot because he is a player on my team. Its cool.

    That said though, he shouldn't be wearing a Phins cap otu in public. When I worked for Verizon we weren't allowed to have non-Verizon phones out for obvious reasons and I think the same common sense rule should apply. Kaepernick I'm sure had no ill intent, but no good could come from wearing it and I don't know why he would.

    I agree. I would rather he not wear the hat. He should have more sense to realize how much of a public figure he has become since he took the sport by storm last year. I'm just not going to make such a big deal about it since he was wearing that hat for fashion.
