Tats make an NFL QB look stupid: David Whitley of the Sporting News

David Whitley, author, of the Sporting News wrote of San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick's sleeves: “NFL quarterback is the ultimate position of influence and responsibility. He is the CEO of a high-profile organization, and you don’t want your CEO to look like he just got paroled.”

Except your average CEO wears a shirt with full length sleeves, Whitley. Seriously, what do you think makes an author sit down and write the bullshit you see above? Well, his Twitter account offers a good clue. It looks like a spoof account...only it isn't. It's just unclever. Like the author.

David Whitley’s opinion is not reflective of the opinion of AOL, Inc. AOL has an opinion? Would almost bet Whitley, the author, as an AOL email address.

Colin's parents were thrilled. Mom: “It annoyed me,” Teresa said. “You are categorizing this kid on something like tattoos? Really? Saying other guys are role models because they don’t have them? Really? Some of these other guys don’t have crystal clear reputations. That’s how you’re going to define this kid? It’s pretty irritating, but it is what it is.” Dad: “This guy has probably never talked to Colin,” Rick said. “Instead of saying that Colin does all these great things and donates his time to children, this guy is going to make him out like a gangster. Really? I guess you just have to roll with the punches. Somebody asked me if I got mad about that. I said no. It’s just a guy and his opinion. I could have an opinion about him, but I’ve never met the guy, so I don’t know if my opinion would be right.”

I could have an opinion about him, but I’ve never met the guy, so I don’t know if my opinion would be right. Oh, how that mission statement could help stop 90% of the author driven BS we see day in and day out.

Oh, and Whitley is going to hate this.
