According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Pro Football Hall of Fame  has removed the photo above of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

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.

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.

While I understand why they removed the photo, it’s a little disheartening that the NFL has done so much to erase Hernandez from their league before he’s been convicted of any crimes.

    This picture is about the photograph and the photographer, not the football player. If the H of F thinks they still have to take it down, they should continue to acknowledge the photographer and explain why the photograph has been removed.
