One of the benefits of Twitter is that we’ll potentially get real, candid reactions from NFL players to the various occurrences and developments that are part of life in the NFL.
Ravens cornerback Fabian Washington provided just such a real, candid reaction on Monday with his response to the news that receiver Derrick Mason is retiring (unless he doesn’t).
“LOSING DERRIK [sic] MASON IS A BIG BLOW TO US,” Washington wrote on his Twitter page.
And he punctuated it with an all-caps “F” bomb.
So, basically, this Twitter thing will get very interesting once the games start this year, even if none of the players will actually be tweeting from the games.
