    unwritten rule: You can't wear merch of an opposing team. Even if you're from Chicago you can't rock a Bulls hat, you can rock a Bears, a Cubs, a Blackhawks, any other sport but the one you're in.

    It's not illegal, but it's poor form, like kicking someone in the nuts during a fight.

    Whoa. When did they bring that rule in? Or do you mean, like in fights for fun, where people stop beating on each other when someone goes down, no kicking in the head when unconscious and no knives?

    And I would really appreciate it if you'd stop speaking to me as if what you're saying is more valid/important just because you're older. People of all ages can make valuable contributions to sports discussion (or any discussion for that matter).
    heh.

    You prove my point.

    I'm done cleaning the floor with you young fella, go shower up!

    Actually it is exactly the same situation, Daye is an employee of the Toronto Raptors, he is not sponsored by the team. The analogy that doesn't make sense is you comparing a player's contract with a team to a sponsorship deal with Nike or Adidas. Just because you are endorsed by a company does not mean you are an employee (I suppose the Raptors work for Air Canada then?), and just because you're an employee does not mean that you have to behave like you are endorsed by it (ie. wearing merchandise). Players are obligated to wear team gear during games and other team-related events, but when it comes to their free time they can wear whatever they want.

    That's one way to look at it. But there are other ways as well. One way is to compare it to high school or college sports. You don't see Duke players wearing NC hats. And its reasonable that fans would get upset when their team is sporting other teams caps, whether it being college sports or professional
