ESPN Uses Photo Of Colin Kaepernick In Street Clothes, Changes It

Colin Kaepernick

Why ESPN decided to use a photo of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in street clothes is beyond me. If I had to guess, I’d say the photo of him in street clothes makes him look more like a thug, and less like a professional, and that was the image that ESPN was trying to convey. They rarely ever use a non-standard photo for players, no matter what they’re reporting on.

Not the wisest decision ESPN has ever made.
