I try to tune out the rhetoric of the NFL as much as possible, it’s my favorite sport, but the “reality TV show” aspect of some of the off field drama just gets old after awhile.
When it comes to these twitter wars, which were especially newsworthy during the lockout, I try not to promote them because I think their dumb, shallow, and somewhat meaningless.
I mean, Antonio Cromartie telling Matt Hasselbeck he’s going to smash his face in kind of loses it’s flare when the guy comes out several months later listing the team that guy might quarterback as someone (Seahawks) he’s interested in.

If you’re a fantasy football player or a Houston Texans fan you have probably heard about how Foster got pissed at some fans for worrying about his injury for “fantasy” reasons instead of “sincere” reasons:
In comes a response from ESPN’s Colin Cowherd, who many, many, and I mean many people regard as an ass. I have no personal feelings of hatred towards the man, but can certainly see where he gets the reputation from the several times I have seen his broadcasts.
