With all sorts of allegations and smack and excuses landing on Twitter in the wake of the conference title games, Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo has chimed in. Specifically, he says he won’t be watching the upcoming game between the Giants and Patriots.
“Truth being told I am not sure I’m going to watch the unSuper Bowl since the two best teams are sitting at home
#ravens #49ers,” Ayanbadejo said.
We re-tweeted the message to our 200,000-plus followers (you can easily become one, too), after the Ravens had re-tweeted it. And that may be the more significant development.
It’s one thing for a player to chew on sour grapes. It’s quite another for his team to essentially endorse that viewpoint via the “RT” function on Twitter.
The reaction to our re-tweet has been fairly strong. For the many of you who don’t, won’t, and never will use Twitter, you can sound off in the comments.
