he's not wearing it cause he loves or roots for the falcons, he's not wearing it to needle any panthers fans, and he's not doing it for any reason other than his own culturally influenced sense of fashion. I'm very sure he means no one any offense, I believe he loves the Panthers organization and is more than appreciative of the U-Haul full of money they dumped on his lap. I'm sure he'll continue to bust his ass on the game and practice field as long as he's employed by Jerry Richardson.
That said, when you employee someone for your company, you expect them to work hard, fulfill his contractual obligations, be a good co-worker, and demonstrate allegiance and loyalty to the company and its brand. This goes for the corn dog maker at Orange Julius and the cashier at Bojangles, nevermind the highest-paid employee of a nationally recognized organization. To put yourself on the internet for all to see promoting your closest competitor in the same week they got the best of you is careless and ignorant of your responsibilities to your company.
THAT said, I really don't care. Just think there is cause to be irritated by it. Especially if you know the PSL money you're stretching your budget to afford is going to Charles Johnson's collection of Falcons hats, when he could afford to wear anything on his head in the world.
