I agree about saying things in the heat of the moment. If that was me that tweeted that, I probably would have deleted it about 20 minutes later...and I only have 88 "followers", but then again I'm not a dbag.
DA is still defending what he said. Tells me enough about him.
Yeah he would be best served just apologizing and letting it blow over. I doubt anyone will remember it once training camp rolls around.
Complaining about a ticket is fine. Generalizing all police officiers as people that "got beat up in highschool" is a really dumb thing to put on twitter.
Of course DA is backtracking now and saying he didn't mean ALL police officiers.
I just think it makes him look like a bag and I'm thankful our core players don't engage in twitter for the most part, with Hardy being the exception.
Sounds like he said some things in the heat of the moment, pretty sure most of us have done that in some form or another at one point in our lives. I agree with you about players being on Twitter, it just opens these guys up to more criticism. On the flip side there are also the morons who attack these players on social media, who only embarrass the rest of us.
If we didn't point out our own players sounding like fools we might as well be Saints fans.
I don't think he's the first person in the world to be upset about getting a ticket. He probably should have waited to cool down some before making public comments about it, but he's hardly any different from many other people out here in the world. The fans here calling him names over this are no better than the rival fan trolls who visit these boards.
