As we told you about last weekend, NFL centers Mike and Maurkice Pouncey celebrated their birthdays with the supremely questionable decision to wear “Free Hernandez” hats. Maurkice realized their blunder quickly and issued a well-worded apology on Twitter. Mike, on the other hand, won’t even address the controversy, let alone apologize for it.

“I’m just here to focus on football,” Mike Pouncey said, via ProFootballTalk, as he was questioned several times about the hats. “It’s training camp right now, so we’re just here to focus on football.”

Declining to even provide an insincere mea culpa is a pretty curious PR move; all the Dolphins center must do in order for the media to allow him to focus on football is issue a two-sentence apology like his brother did.

You think that apologizing is necessary! He doesn't so no comments. He stands by the statement on his hat. Get over it a man could do that its not illegal. Innocent UNTIL proven guilty!

If he is "man" enough to wear it in public then he obviously is not that much of a "man" if he does not have the spine to discuss it.

He shows what kind of rodents have infested the NFL.

Why kiss butt when you don't have to. Let the media kiss their own butt.

You media guys are so invasive. He doesnt have to defend his actions to anyone. He chose not to answer, get over it

@hoth733 Actually as somebody who is supposed to be some type of role model for kids, he does have to accept some responsibility for his actions or he can quit the NFL and stay out of the spotlight. Oh, wait, being a gangsta-wannabe is a role model nowadays.

@mdg1019 @hoth733 The Pounceys just wanted to remind everyone who the real victim is here. The police are persecuting their friend. Must be a conspiracy. :)
