Revis was not wearing the other team's game day gear. It was your basic ATLANTA FALCON hat that any fan could purchase. Doubt that he "exchanged it' with a falcon player.
Played D1 myself and never exchanged the other teams gear before a game. If it were a tournament, far away from campus, then possibly but would NEVER even consider wearing the other team's logo while my team was still playing.
Not too upset over it? If a teammate of mine was wearing the logo of an opponent in season, or out, my teammates and I would have a HUGE issue with this.
The only place in the sports world where this is accepted is the NY JETS and some of their fans.
: Where we sign opposing players who call us idiots and our own players who sport the gear of the opponent.
You cant make this stuff up
