Colin Kaepernick led San Francisco to its third NFC Championship game with a 23-10 win over the Panthers. But forget that! He has some nerve wearing his cap backwards. That's the most unprofessional act a quarterback could do. It goes right up there with wearing tattoos.
Of course that's ridiculous, but writer Sal Maiorana took issue with Kaepernick wearing his hat backwards to conduct interviews. He said in a since deleted tweet, "Kaepernick. Always so media friendly. Turn your cap around and act like a professional quarterback."
The hate came quick:

Can someone please photoshop a backwards Red Sox cap on a @salmaiorana photo? Please.— Joe (@BuffaloWins) January 12, 2014
And here's Maiorana, the supposed professional, with his response:
Its so much fun infuriating all of you. What a laugh riot watching my feed blow up. And I'm the angry one?— Sal Maiorana (@salmaiorana) January 12, 2014
