Should Dolphins Center Mike Pouncey Offer Apology for “Free Hernandez” Hat?

Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey has yet to offer an apology to anyone offended by him wearing a “Free Hernandez” hat over the weekend. Aaron Hernandez, Pouncey’s former teammate at the University of Florida, is currently in jail while he awaits trial for murder.

Many feel that Pouncey’s hat attempted to make light of an extremely serious situation and was disrespectful to the family of the young man who lost his life.

Steelers’ center Maurkice Pouncey, Mike’s twin brother who was also wearing a hat with the same message, has already offered an apology via his twitter page. Two days later, the Dolphins’ Pouncey has yet to address the issue.

The longer Mike waits, the longer he’ll be open for criticism. But should he have to apologize at all?

Here are a couple reactions from Dolphins fans sent to the Dolphins Gab twitter page:

What do you the rest of you think? Does Pouncey need to apologize immediately or is it too late? Perhaps he was perfectly within his rights and doesn’t have to answer for apparel he chooses to wear.

Discuss.

    You can’t fix stupid. My first thought was that Coach Philbin is going to replace the kid. Coach doesn’t put up with less than professional behaviour. I did see the NY times article that 41 Uof Fla Gators from that team have been arrested. Tebow is the only bright point from that Championship team. Maybe making millions of dollars makes you stupid.
