10:01 AM ET 07.14 | The Pro Football Hall of Fame has removed a photo of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez celebrating a touchdown from a display after several visitors complained about its presence. Hernandez has been charged with the June 17 shooting death of Odin Lloyd, a story that has dominated headlines in recent weeks. The tight end has pled not guilty to one count of murder and five gun-related charges. The 2010 photo of Hernandez scoring a TD was an award-winning image from the annual HOF photo contest. Hall officials removed it from a display earlier this week. "In the spirit of good taste we thought we'd take it down," said Joe Horrigan, the hall's vice president of communication and exhibits.

Just change the name on his HOF display to T.D. Parker.

A photo is the least of the NFL's problems when it comes to bad behavior by players and at least one owner it appears. But it does make you look like you are doing due diligence without doing anything.

Yes, Hall of Fame removed his photo but Fan Nation will be running Hernandez threads for another year.

Did anybody else see the news that the Pouncey twins are wearing ball caps that read "Free Hernandez"? I just lost a whole lot of respect for those boys.
