While Larry Johnson shows other NFL players how not to use Twitter, Arizona defensive tackle Darnell Dockett continues to entertain. Dockett’s musings often approach the line without going over it.
This week, one of Dockett’s targets was Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who punched Dockett in the fourth quarter of New York’s loss to Arizona.
“OH before I
forget shoutout to bradshaw that week ass punch,” Dockett wrote. “That s*** felt like a
scoobey snack. Glass joe on mike tyson hit harder than U.” (Would that make Dockett Soda Popinski?)
Dockett doesn’t pull any punches on Twitter. While watching Monday Night Football, a follower asked Dockett what he would do if he was on the Redskins. “I’d jump out my car during traffic HEAD 1ST!” Dockett joked that if Jason Campbell was his quarterback, he’d knock him out in practice.
I enjoy Dockett’s unfiltered rants, but it’s easy to imagine Johnson’s troubles having repercussions throughout the league. The Dolphins banned Twitter for their players, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see more teams, or possibly the league, address a Twitter policy more thoroughly this offseason.
