Ties that grind

I'm honestly not sure what to think about this:
A car salesman in suburban Chicago who was fired for refusing to remove a Green Bay Packers tie says he won't be coming back even though his former boss has relented.

John Stone wore the tie to work at Webb Chevrolet in Oak Lawn Monday, the day after the Packers beat the Chicago Bears to advance to the Super Bowl.

Stone says he wore the tie to honor his late grandmother, who was a big Green Bay fan.
Okay, unless there's some sort of dress code regarding sports attire and the like, getting fired for something like that seems kind of frivolous.

On the other hand, this is a big sports rivalry, and Bears fans aren't very happy that their team lost. Wearing some Packers attire to your sales job in Chicago probably isn't great for business, so there's that as well.

What say you, nonexistent commenters?
