It's disrespectful to his Houston fans. And I think the comparison to actors & singers is irrelevant because actors & singers aren't contracted to a local franchise with a hometown fan base. If they were, then I'd make the same argument that Huey Lewis shouldn't be seen in a Gloria Estefan hat for however long as he's lucky enough to be playing for San Francisco.
    Were it part of his contract that he never wear a piece of any other team gear and he violated it he should be fined as per his contract. Were it not, and this is a simple pretend morality or "respect" issue of dress code, I disagree that he is somehow showing disrespect to his fans. This kid plays his heart out and almost singlehandedly got SF to the superbowl (IMO).

    I also disagree that he is "lucky" enough to be playing for SF. He is great enough. He is skilled enough. No one voted him into his position due to his charm or popularity (or PC-ness!!!!!). And lets not forget that his lifespan and quality of life is probably going to be directly altered due to the decision to play for SF......he is at a directly increased likelyhood to face early onset dementia due to concussions, knee issues, depression, and a host of other life altering issues as he ages due to his involvement with professional sports. The *MOMENT* that his quality of play diminishes he will be tosses aside LIKE a hat. He is also an adult. With adulthood comes certain rights....one of them being the right to wear the clothes one chooses. This is silly.

    I'm just finding it really weird to be on the opposite side of a debate from Kim.
