In America you are deemed innocent until proven guilty. However, the court of public opinion often operates from a slightly different tilt. Two twin brother NFL players are showing their support for accused murderer, former Patriot, Aaron Hernandez. The Pouncey twins played with Hernandez at the University of Florida and won a BCS title together. The twins have set internet tongues wagging. Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and Dolphins center Mike Pouncey were spotted wearing “Free Hernandez” hats.
While they are certainly allowed to show support for someone they consider a friend. I hope they were prepared for the PR nightmare they’ve created for themselves and their respective teams.
