Falcons wide receiver Roddy White got into what is becoming a weekly Twitter fight.
There was the scrap with fans during the labor situation, the fans from New Orleans after he ripped their city, his freestyle tweets on commissioner Roger Goodell and let’s not forget about him expressing remorse for his anti-gay tweets.
This time, White appears to be fighting with himself over the worthiness of former players’ right to bash the game.
“It’s crazy how football players are killing our game you signed up to play a violent game and made a lot of money now u talk bad about #how”
White later added: “Yes older players didn’t make what we made but I remember when gas was 89 cents so the cost of living was different. I don’t have nothing against old players they made football what it is today and I love those guys and I don’t have a problem with them suing the nfl I don’t have to worry about it the nfl has enough money to pay them.”
I’m not sure what White really means. I think he respects the players who built the game, but then counters with a notion that the lawsuits are killing the game. I certainly concur with this, gas prices are too damn high!!!
What’s your interpretation?
