If the NFL owners want to see members of the players’ union sniping at each other, then Antonio Cromartie is giving them exactly what they want.
We’ve previously noted that Cromartie called the union leadership “a–holes,” that some were viewing Cromartie’s comments as the first sign that the union would back down in March, and that other players quickly rallied around the union and told Cromartie to cram it.
Then today we noted that Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck tweeted a shot at Cromartie, then thought better of it and deleted it.
But Hasselbeck has discovered that once you publish something on the Internet, you can never completely erase it. And Cromartie has fired back at Hasselbeck.
Said Cromartie in a tweet directed as Hasselbeck this afternoon, “hey Matt if u have something to then say it be a man about it. Don’t erase it. I will smash ur face in.”
Hasselbeck hasn’t responded, but he has tweeted, “I was in a bad mood this morning when I woke up.” He’ll be in an even worse mood if he happens to run into Cromartie any time soon.
UPDATE: Hasselbeck has apologized with this tweet: “Sorry for the joke man. No hard feelings. DB’s & QB’s have a hard time getting along I guess sometimes. lol”
