    OK I think it is foolish when people get bent when an athlete wears gear from a different city in a different sport but c'mon Kaep you can't wear another NFL team's gear. You did it for attention and then you ran it up more with the defiant tweet. Not a good sign for his maturity level.

    Who gives a crap? It's the offseason. These hard are a fashion statement and not a sign of affiliation. They're worn to match w something; an accessory. Those that don't like it should go suck a...lemon.

    Infantrycake is right here, his very defensive response to comments about his Dolphin attire is a sure sign of immaturity and not what you would want from the leader of your teams offense. And the Tats maybe are cool in the 'Hood, but with punk NE player and accused killer Hernandez now the poster boy for Tats it's not a good look. Trouble is these things are basically there for life I guess, you just don't wash them off and start anew the next morning.

    Why do sites like instagram make it difficult to post pictures?
    This is the thing I'm most interested in. How are these young guys going to handle this instant success? How are they going to react when all of a sudden they aren't winning? How much will they internalize & take the appropriate steps to correct the issue? How much will they attribute to those around them & separate themselves from the solution?

    How many distractions can they deal with?

    Hatgate.

    Let me guess. We're in the dead zone before training camp.

    Your correlation between tattoos and a murder are ridiculous. This generation is about self expression and doing as you please. Neither a hat nor tattoos tell you anything about a persons character.

    Ted Bundy - No tattoos, killed 30
    Jeffrey Dahmer - No Tattoos, killed 17
    John Wayne Gacy - No tattoos, killed 33

    Using your logic, all white guys that don't have tattoos are serial killers?

    DexmanC has been trying to tell y'all that for years, but y'all won't take him seriously.

    Now, now maybe you'll see the truth in which he speaks & learn.

    Don't virtually all gang members wear Tats and have specific Tat(s) that identify their gang affiliation ?

    I personally don't care but I do think he is showing his immaturity. His attitude is a slap in the face to the loyal and die hard San Francisco fans that help pay his salary. But whateva...

    I have tattooed arms, wear fitted hats, and hold 2 government clearances. What's your point?

    Aren't all serial killers white males, no tattoos, and seem normal enough?

    If Kaepernick suffers a significant "sophomore slump," he may be handed the opportunity to match the rest of his uniform to his Dolphins hat.:kitten:

    Not sure how this got onto tattoos but I will say while I have several the nature of the tattoos matters. A full sleeve dragon with a yin yang (which I intend to get one day) is one thing. A sleeve of gang crap is different and the government from police to military to security clearances will pay attention.

    What the heck is a fitted hat? Do people walk around with hats that don't fit them?

    Appears Jim Harbaugh may not approve (from PFT.com):

    That Harbaugh thing was about wearing the wrong crap in a teams locker room. That's disrespectful.

    In this case, Kaepernick is hang'n in Miami (right?) or somewhere in Florida. I bet Harbaugh couldn't care less as long as he wears the right uniform when it counts.

    As an aside, it is odd that a football player would wear the colors of a different team.

    Say..... the dragon sleeve, doesn't that make you Yakuza?

    & a fitted cap is made to a particular size. It is not a one size fits all affair.

    I can't fathom how this would not bother someone.

    If Watt posts a pic in a Packers hat or Cushing in a Jets hats, I'm definitely not cool about it.

    I understand that this is a business, but wearing another team's hate is pretty damn disrespectful to your team.

    Uh-huh, not the least interested in responding directly to the question.
    Pretty much sums it up.
