I just watched a video on TSN.com and Chris Leak is wearing a Florida Gators hat in the interview (which was just shot within the last few days).
What is with this guy and holding onto his past so much? First the ridiculous Gator chomp celebration after a first down scamper on a broken play and now he's representing the Gators during interviews? (He wasn't just wearing the hat, he was also dressed in their colours.) I thought this guy had been with the Als for three years or something already. You'd think he'd take a little pride in his professional team and leave his college days in the past where they belong.
I'm curious about others' thoughts on players' dress in interviews. In virtually every interview I've ever seen with a professional player of any sport that I can remember, they are dressed in their current team's gear or dress clothes not depicting any team. This, to me, seems fair. It is, after all, as much a brand as a team.
Do y'all think players should be mandated to wear their current team's gear or is it okay to represent another team even if they're not in the same league as your current one?
I personally think it was a bit of a slap in the face to the Als for Chris Leak to do this and a poor decision on his part. Even if he didn't happen to have an Als hat, he could've at least taken off his Gators hat.
