I would call this scandal Capgate, except "Capgate" sound like a scandal that would involve Jerry Jones and Dan Snider undermining the salary cap.
Smith was levied with a $15,000 fine from the NFL league offices, though the league office rescinded the fine and let Smith off with a warning. In a whimsical retort, Giants manager Bruce Bochy wore a 49ers ballcap (pictured right) in support of Smith. This is probably the closest thing to humor that Bochy has ever attempted in his 18 seasons as an MLB manager.
Smith had traditionally worn a San Diego Padres cap, but switched his post-game ball cap affiliation last season. The 49ers won the NFC West last year, so Smith took it as a good luck charm and continued wearing the Giants cap this season.
Smith, by all indications, will heed the rule and no longer wear a Giants cap. It should be noted that Wes Welker of the Patriots was also fined last season for wearing a non-league-approved hat.
