Opinions on rival teams can get pretty strong if you’re a passionate NFL fan, but one American entertainment center manager based in Washington may have taken things a little too far when he sacked one of his employees for wearing a Denver Broncos jersey.
Sources state that the Broncos fan in question, a 17-year-old boy Nathaniel Wentz, was told to wear a football jersey to work on January 19 in order to promote the hype afforded to the Seattle Seahawks upcoming clash with the Broncos at the Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2.
However when Wentz turned up in his chosen jersey- that of the Broncos- he was sent home from work. The youngster then chose not to return to work, and action that he cites as the reason for his official firing.
“It was all about you can't. You can't represent your team. There's something wrong with that," Wentz is reported as saying by 9News in Colorado.
It may turn out that Wentz has the last laugh if his team end up beating the Seahawks come the Super Bowl, but regardless the 17-year-old is said to be happy that he can now watch the action as opposed to having to work through it.
