Re: Shanahan Tells Banks He Better Learn to Play WR

I could really care less what a player wears in their personal time

I think a Brandon Banks who cares but if your a face of a franchise guy you are going to ruffle some feathers if you are wearing another teams colors.

If folks saw Ray Lewis with a Steelers hat on, there be some up roar.

Re: Shanahan Tells Banks He Better Learn to Play WR

It's funny how that works, with hats and all. We blast players, such as Clinton Portis for wearing a Phillies hat, and now Banks for wearing a Steelers hat.

Yet we'll jump up and down for joy when we see a player like Kevin Durant wearing a Redskins hat, meanwhile their fans who are predominately Cowboys fans are raising hell.

It used to bother me because hell, why wear their stuff? But now, being it's all fashion and what not, doesn't bother me.

Now if we were playing the Steelers this week and he had that on, then yeah, it'd probably piss me off, but the offseason, no big deal.

As long as he is wearing the B&G on Sundays, it's all good with me.

No. What clothes and/or accessories he wears in his spare time is his own thing. Often times it's about how you look, not what team you're repping.

Luckily we wouldn't have to worry about RG3 doing anything like that.

A Pirates cap would look better. Boston Bruins too.

I know it's not a big deal really, but I still hate to see it. C'mon man, you really shouldn't be wearing any other NFL team's gear...just because of perception.

Maybe the NFL should dictate his attire off the field as well. Hell, just go ahead and tell him how he needs to vote, what religion he needs to abide by, and what sexuality he needs to choose. Some of you fans are just LOL. Now, come game day he's wearing a Pittsburgh attire, then get back with me and I'll side with you.

/facepalm

It's interesting how corporate america has brainwashed people into "being loyal" to your company! Make no mistake about it, the Redskins are a business first and foremost. Also, the hypocrisy in it all is even more of a laugh.

Here is the mindset from many fans:
1) all players should be loyal to their team and should take pay cuts to stay with said team
2) all fans should be loyal to their team and continue to cheer for them regardless of how incompetent the owner/front office is


On the opposite spectrum:
1) Teams can cut players and trade them and this is fine. Loyalty to that players isn't required.
2) Teams can gouge fans to see the product or even simply lock out the season.


Newsflash: They have no loyalty to the players or the fans so none is needed back.

I'm not too concerned about the Banks thing and so I'm not making a big deal here. But Portis wearing a baseball hat or Durant wearing a football hat are not the best examples because the hats were from sports different than what the player played.

Put differently, Banks wearing a Pirates hat is less controversial than Banks wearing a Steelers cap.

Of course the real question is, when Banks soon becomes a Walmart cashier, will he wear a Target hat?

Exactly but just to piss first down and the group even more, I'm sure he paid for the hat with the money from his Redskins paycheck.
