Maurkice Pouncey apologizes for “Free Hernandez” hat

The public apology suddenly has become the latest trend for NFL players.

A day after Falcons receiver Roddy White and Giants receiver Victor Cruz apologized for their tweet-first-think-later comments about the Zimmerman verdict, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey has apologized for his Hernandez-related haberdashery at the recent birthday party for Maurkice and his twin brother, Mike.

“I fully recognize the seriousness of the situation involving my former teammate, and I regret that my actions appear to make light of that serious situation,” Maurkice Pouncey said via Twitter on Monday.  “I apologize to anyone who was offended by my actions.”

Mike Pouncey, who plays center for the Dolphins, has yet to issue his own apology on Twitter.

It’s hard not to wonder whether Maurkice’s apology was prompted, if not written, by the Steelers, who surely didn’t take a kind view of the show of support for a man who is jailed pending a murder trial.

    Um…Free Zimmerman? Somehow I don’t think that is quite right.

  2. jm91rs says: Jul 15, 2013 12:53 PM

    If you’re really sorry, why don’t you tell prosecutors details about what happened that night in Gainesville back in 2007?

  5. bobzilla1001 says: Jul 15, 2013 12:56 PM

    Too late.
    Maurkice’s allegiance and intelligence have been exposed.
    Nice try, though.

  6. northstarnic says: Jul 15, 2013 12:56 PM

    Not so much offended by his actions as the level of stupidity demonstrated by his actions. Apology schmapology

  7. blahblahblah1313 says: Jul 15, 2013 12:58 PM

    Very sincere apology. Just ask whoever wrote it for him.

  8. dolphincritic says: Jul 15, 2013 12:58 PM

    The Pouncey brothers were close friends with Hernandez at Florida. Hernandez taught them how to shoot!

  20. harrycanyon says: Jul 15, 2013 1:08 PM

    These guys are idiots. You can’t openly support someone who is up on murder charges, with some damning evidecne like this. You do it quietly and with caution. The NFL needs to start taking action, so these players learn to think before they act. This is just as stupid as when CLinto Portis came out in support of Vick and saying everyone in the hood fights dogs (or something to that degree)… stupid!

  21. nflcrimerankingscom says: Jul 15, 2013 1:08 PM

    Maybe athletes should just keep quiet.

  22. wryly1 says: Jul 15, 2013 1:09 PM

    The Pouncey’s have a First Amendment right to publicly express their thoughtless ignorance. The rest of us have the same right to point that out to them when they do.

  23. obsessedvikingfan says: Jul 15, 2013 1:09 PM

    These stupid comments and stunts don’t even fall into the “it is easier to ask for forgivness than permission” ideas.

    The more people have, the more they want and the more they think the rules don’t apply to them.

    The NFL needs to hold a “Common Sense” seminar at every training camp.

  24. dlw492 says: Jul 15, 2013 1:10 PM

    It’s funny how society wants these athletes to apologize because they are in the spotlight, I understand though. You can’t be rocking a hat with the name of a murderer. But at the same time I understand where the athletes are coming from. They basically just want to remember him from how they knew him as teenagers and young adults. Ask Tebow how he feels about AH- he’ll say that he loves him & is praying for him because that’s what friends to- they stick by you. Supporting and sticking by someone’s side are two different things. Not like any of his ex teammates came out and said he’s not gility. They just support him because that’s their boy. On the otherhand- it doesn’t look too promising for AH..

  25. ccjcsr says: Jul 15, 2013 1:10 PM

    Poor Judgement, but people will point to the “he’s young argument”.

  26. pensman29 says: Jul 15, 2013 1:10 PM

  27. bmoreravens1012013 says: Jul 15, 2013 1:11 PM

    If that’s an apology, then I must not know what an apology is, because he said “appear”. He didn’t acknowledge that it was wrong in his mind. He is sorry that people took it too serious, and even that’s reaching…

    Apologize for wearing an offensive hat, not to those who were offended. It was a stupid thing to do.

    “The public apology suddenly has become the latest trend for NFL players.”

    That should cover it. All you have to do is say whatever and the apology should protect them. Oops it didn’t happen to Paula Deen but I guess thats a different deal.

  32. chrisnyg says: Jul 15, 2013 1:17 PM

    Only reason they are apologizing is because their employers and possible sponsors are putting heat on them.

  33. edisbetterthantroy says: Jul 15, 2013 1:18 PM

    Steelers Nation will make excuses and defend this because they’re classier than everyone else.

    Hey I am still waiting for ray Lewis to apologize. Raven fans should be the last to comment on player conduct unless it would be to say we should have been more like the Pats but we don’t have the moral fortitude to do that.

  38. fdugrad says: Jul 15, 2013 1:29 PM

    I wonder what it must be like for head and position coaches to be forced to deal with players who have such little grasp of given situations and who exhibit such levels of ignorance year in and year out? It’s a wonder coaches can get these kinds of characters to carry out their rather complicated assignments in synch with their mates, at each snap of the ball!

  39. nfl4days says: Jul 15, 2013 1:30 PM

    1. Maurkice = Mar Keese

    2. Its things like this that give the NLF a bad name. Most NFL players dont get arrested, dont act like idiots, dont say controversial stuff, and others things of the such, but the ones that do get non-stop media coverage and make the news, while the ones who do nothing dont. The media will focus on the number of players arrested way more than the number of players that devote their time to giving back to the community.

  40. metrocritical says: Jul 15, 2013 1:31 PM

    3 quick thoughts: (1) Another example of how money can’t buy brains or class. (2) Anybody that dumb cannot have articulated a reasonably coherent public apology. (3) One must wonder if there is an App out there for insensitive and stupid public figures that takes insincere, reticent ramblings and converts them into succinct statements of remorse to be twittered or released to the media because it seems like the same person writes the apologies for pro athletes and politicians throughout the country.

  44. mogogo1 says: Jul 15, 2013 1:34 PM

    The craziest part is he apparently actually ordered the hat up to be made. So, it wasn’t just him picking up a dumb hat and putting it on without thinking–he actually had plenty of time to think “A Free Hernandez hat would be epic! Let’s have one made!”

  45. stoytashaan says: Jul 15, 2013 1:35 PM

Just remember the face of the moral franchise….drum roll…that paragon of virtue….that morally beyond reproach father of six with four different women …Ray Lewis. Please troll win six …until then you are chumps first and champs second..the Pats showed class the ravens just think its a room in school.

    The Ravens once had Donte’ Stallworth, so I apologize for him and Ray Lewis on behalf of the Ravens.

  50. stainlessstill says: Jul 15, 2013 1:38 PM

    Lets get real. The NFL, no matter what team, is way too much out in the open nowadays, which exposes these young, brainless kids for who they are, the temptation that progress’s and the fame for 20-something year olds with multi-year million dollar guaranteed contracts. The NFL and classy organizations can only try to teach their employee’s and players so much as to stay out of trouble. It’s getting harder and harder. The NFL is just full of a bunch of mindless athletes who can play the game of football with fame shot straight to their head. Making fun of an organization for “classless” players doesn’t hold water anymore. For every player like Roethlisberger being accused, there’s 10 more not reported for YOUR team as well.

    Good luck, Goodell with trying to fix this. I hope this black eye on the game and the athletes and their characters change the landscape of future prospects. Social Media is getting out of hand.

    People are taking this too far. Has Hernandez been convicted of anything? I do not think so. Innocent until proven guilty. Remember that? Obviously if Hernandez was proven guilty the hat would be in poor taste but we know nothing. This is nothing but a guy supporting a friend and ex-teammate. Now, I would not have done it but I see no harm in it considering it is just one guy standing up for his friend. Now, if he never met Hernandez, I would have a problem with it.

  67. steelbloggin says: Jul 15, 2013 2:36 PM

  69. rugolin says: Jul 15, 2013 2:43 PM

    I wonder where is the point where fans start to walk away from the game with all bad behavior from players. From domestic violence,drug dealing,PED use and now several murders it gets harder to support the team and league. Now you have players standing behind their law breaking teammates instead of the general public. The game culture of the NFL has become hopelessly corrupted and I would not want any of my kids to have these guys as role models or heroes. Maybe the general public should just turn their back on the game and have the players wonder where their jobs and their wholly undeserved multimillon dollar CEO level 1% pay went.

  70. swaggyy says: Jul 15, 2013 2:48 PM

    I don’t see what the big deal is. Just supporting his friend who is innocent until proven guilty in the court of law. I don’t think he should of had to apologize

    ^I would never walk away from watching and supporting football because of all the arrests etc. There is still a lot more good guys in the league then bad and they shouldn’t be punished for that. I love football and guy getting arrested or using PEDs will never ruin that for me. Its always happened through the years.

    Seriously, I don’t follow anyone so maybe someone can enlighten me. Has anyone ever tweeted anything ever of any interest or value that makes all this nonsense worthwhile?

    Why would Roethlisberger apologize? Everyone knows that he really did not rape anyone. Cmon, do you think he really asked a hotel worker to fix his TV and then raped her? Does it sound like rape when a woman follows someone into the bathroom? Cmon. And Burress had his incident after winning the Super Bowl for the Giants. making a difference? HAHAHAHAHA. yeah, Ray Lewis taught us how to plead guilty to obstruction so that you do not later get convicted of murder. What a difference he made.

    when a steeler player does something wrong, why do steeler fans bring up ray lewis. what does he have to do with this. lets stay on topic. im waiting for a certain steeler fan to demand that pouncey be thrown off the team because he is supporting someone who is possibly involved in a murder. i guess different rules apply when its your guy on the hot seat

    Personally, I think you’ll see Doug Legursky start taking more snaps with the top of the depth chart because of this.

    Okay, so the brothers Pouncey were teammates with Aaron Hernandez, and rightly or wrongly, they decided to show support for him. With these guys being supposedly media savvy, you would think they would be able to show discretion in public, seeing as how digital cameras are rather ubiquitous in today’s society (cameras themselves or those attached to cell phones). This is especially egregious seeing as how they all came from such a high profile program to begin with. At any level, you are a representative of your organization at all times, whether it’s on the field in uniform or hanging out in a local restaurant.

    No matter who (or what) issued the apology, what’s done is done.

    Yes, Hernandez does deserve his day in court, and from what I’ve seen and read regarding the case, I don’t see any issues with a jury of 12 convicting. Then again, that all depends on when the trial starts and how much of it is thrust upon us.

    All the crybabies bringing up Ray Lewis are just trying to divert attention from a team in shambles. Pouncy, Roethlisbooger, and Burress! What a team to be proud of! Hahahahaha!

    Believe it or not. If we held rappers to the same standards as athletes then the world would be a better place. They have more influence on the youth that an athlete. But nobody cares.

    By the looks of things, rappers have a HUGE influence on the tattooed, wanna-be gangsta professional football players.
    And that’s a major problem.

    Leave it to a Ray Lewis apologist to equate wearing a hat to wearing a bloody white suit. Of course in raven logic they are identical offenses.

    I am not happy with what Pouncey did, but it in no way should be equated to the Lewis fiasco. Small minded hating raven trolls would like to go there, but its a VW not a stretch limo…..but hey the embarrassed raven trolls must try to defend their hypocritical hero.

  103. scoobies05 says: Jul 16, 2013 3:04 PM

    of course wearing a hat is not comparable to being charged with murder(charges which were dropped because they knew he didnt do it). point is you condemn all ravens fans who support ray because he was involved in a murder. well pouncey is sipporting someone who is involved in a murder so i expect you to apply the same scorn to anyone involved. you praised the pats for cutting ties with hernande and said hey ravens…thats how its done. also, there are rumors that the pouncey bros were involved or aware of a prior hernandez crime that they never reported.

    And Ray told everyone to shut up, lied to police, and destroyed a white suit all of which is fact which you have admitted to on several occasions. Rumor mongerring from a Ray Lewis supporter is way beneath you and I am surprised that one to quote “it’s the facts” would speculate as you are. I don’t condemn all raven fans for supporting Ray Lewis…I find Raven fans judging the conduct of other players as a joke when they have Ray as their moral compass. Raven fans need to shut up about AH and Pouncey until Ah is convicted like Ray was. The glass house you sit in has too many holes in the roof.

    Report comment. Funny some one without a moral compass would stoop to snark a typo, but hey you are in character as a raven fan.
    ——————————–
    And where does your compass lie??? You bash Ray Lewis every chance you get yet seem to be completely fine with Roethlisrapers bathroom escapades. So you’re fine with rape but draw the line at murder?

    Also, “clew” isn’t a typo, but a complete misunderstanding of how to spell the word. I’m just trying to help out where the school system failed…
    The direction of my compass is not important, but the fact that you possess no compass. I’m just trying to help where your life has no values…..pathetic case.

  106. scoobies05 says: Jul 16, 2013 6:17 PM

    sorry my friend. ray wasnt convicted of the crimes hernandez is being charged with. he took a misdeamanor plea bargain because yes…he did lie to the police. and you are right. the pouncey stuff is rumor based. i guess the point is as always many sides to every story. ben faced rape allegations more than once. what really hapened…we will never know. holmes and drugs…harrison and domestic abuse. ray faced murder charges. suggs domestic abuse. jamal lewis drug charges. all teams go through this. nfl is a business. players are assets. if the asset gets in trouble the team makes a decision based on the value of the asset. and the teams usually know the players well enough. the ravens believed in ray and the facts proved them right regardless of what you think. pittsburgh believed in ben and stuck with him. its all about winning trophies for every team. the pats probably had a lot of info on hernandez and decided he wasnt worth the hassle…and it looks like they are right. and if pouncey played for any other team you would probably criticize him for his comments.

    NFL should just start sending out a press release every morning, saying “we apologize on behalf of all the NFL players who committed crimes last night and they apologize too.”
