Revis claims Instagram hacking

AP

Earlier today, Deadspin pointed out that Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis engaged in a profane exchange with fans on his Instagram account.  Many predicted that Revis would claim that his account was hacked.

And he has.

“I gotta a ring, I’m paid & worth more than you,” Revis (or the hacker) said in response to Patriots fans unhappy with his decision to join the Jets.  “I look better than you & my d**k is bigger then yours so safe all the bull for somebody who cares cause I don’t.  Your a pimple on my ass.”  (All typos were preserved; we counted at least five.)

“Wait did you physically go out there & play,” Revis (or the hacker) said to another fan.  “Like did you actually play one down, lol no.  So your best is to shut the f**k up, be a spectator, & watch me do something you wish you could do.”

And then came the finale, on the question of whether the Pats helped Revis win a Super Bowl:  “They ain’t win another one until I came d–khead so who got who a ring.  Sh-t I didn’t have to go there so basically I did bill & Tom a favor not the other way around c–t.”

Again, Revis claims his account was hacked.  If it were, the hacker missed a golden opportunity to express a lot more creativity and to create a lot more havoc.

  1. He will fit in perfectly with the Jets. Ungrateful, low IQ and destined for several years of 4-12 until he holds out for more money or demands to be traded.

  2. I hate the weak “IT was a hacker” excuse – seems like there are some baby-balls under that “big d***!”

  3. If any of you ACTUALLY know how Darrelle Revis conducts himself and talks then you would know he is actually a really kind person, quiet, and leader on the football field. Even Pats fans will tell you that. This is way out of the realm of Revis’s behavior that I actually believe he was hacked.

    But anyway, how are you about to bash a guy when most of you are probably the same people commenting on other players IG trash talking. And possibly you’re the same people who call it awesome and refreshing in the league when guys like Darnell Dockett and Richard Sherman go out of their way to trash talk people on social media or on the football field.

    Oh man, a football player trash talks a fan or another player and he plays for the Jets?! grab me a defibrillator.

  4. As a pats fan i say the pats organization and revis did each other a favor… Revis isnt going to win a SB with the Jets and the pats werent going to win a SB without an elite corner… And to all the other pats fans giving him grief over signing with the jets they have to understand that that is his home so we cant be mad about it we got our SB win and he goes home with an SB ring so why be mad? In my eye the Pats organization won by having the best CB in football with them for the best year of his career! #PatsNation!

  5. As a Pats fan, I don’t think it was Revis. He is careful with his own “Brand” but to the man/friend who hacked him.. hope he can do the same thing for Geno like he did for Brady he when went 8 for 8 on final drive.

  6. The reality of being back with the jets has sunk in. Just venting his frustration.

    Just joking…..i believe him. Revis likes his endorsements too much to do that

  7. If facebook/twitter/instagram/whatever were as prone to hacking/insecure as people claimed whenever they misbehave they would have all gone out of business long ago because everyone would have abandoned them because of their severe insecurity.

  8. I don’t what happened, but I can tell one thing from the comments (and actually the article too):

    Most people have no idea how incredibly easy it is to hack these accounts. People’s instagram and twitter accounts get hacked thousands of times a day.

    Those comments sound very out of character for Revis, and I am NOT a fan of his.

    Maybe people should be slightly less quick to judge. Then again, what fun would that be?

  9. With all YOUR money, you can buy yourself Hooked on Phonics. I don’t need it because my grammar is better THAN yours. YOU’RE a disgrace to the English language.

    ======================================

    Until he hits the bottle. He posted the messages.

  11. I would actually respect him MORE if it was he who wrote it and not a hacker – I love it when pro ball players rip into couch potato loser fans.

  12. THE DEFLATRIOTS ARE SO BITTER THEY’RE NOW TAMPERING WITH THE DARRELLE REVIS’ INSTAGRAM.

    J E T S! JETS! JETS! JETS!

  13. So why does he only have one ring if he’s so good that he himself did the pats a favor and got them a SB win? If he’s that good then shouldn’t the Jets and Bucs have Inge too? Narcissist

  14. I am not sure Revis would say those words but it wouldn’t surprise me either if he did out of anger.

    Let’s be real though the Pats were in another 4-5 AFC championship games before Revis and another two Super Bowls which they both lost on one play and one was their own undoing.

    Revis was not going to taste the playoffs let alone have the opportunity to play for a Lombardi if he had stayed on those last couple of Jets teams as well as the Buccaneers.

    So let’s be real here even if he did or didn’t say those words, he himself acknowledged that he came to the Patriots to have the opportunity to get a ring so that there in itself admits he needed the Patriots much more than the Patriots needed him.

    Last time I checked Belichick took the 32nd or 31st ranked defense to the super bowl and came within a Wes Welker drop of having another Lombardi.

    Revis should enjoy the money… he deserves every penny someone is willing to pay him even if it means overpaying and salvaging the future. He should enjoy that ring because it is highly possible that’s the only super bowl he may ever play in.

  15. Pats fans are salty AF still? You guys know that wasn’t Revis posting those comments, had him for a year & you’ve seen how he conducts himself in person & on social media. For people claiming these people are drunk when they do this, really? Multi Million dollar athelete in the prime of their lives have nothing better to do than back & forths with angry fans on social media? Not even being an apologists just common sense by now.

  16. I don’t believe Revis made those posts. He was always a gentleman in his dealing with the media and fans here in New England. He’s smart and articulate.

    I’d wager it was a Jets fan that hacked the account though.

  17. Crybaby Patriots fans take to Twitter their bitterness and defense of the marred legacy. Grow up and stop whining.

  18. Why would Revis pay attention to trolls after 10 years? He wouldn’t. He was either hacked or drunk and either way it’s a non story. I’ll always be grateful for having him on the team for one year. Both sides got exactly what they were looking for. Perfect one and done rental.

  19. As a Pats fan I don’t think that’s Revis. He’s been a quiet, classy man. It’s out of character. — That dweeb hacker is just a pathetic Patriots haters acting out his fantasy.

  20. I’m a Patriots fan. This doesn’t sound like something Revis would do. Unless proven otherwise, I’m sticking with my gut feeling and believing that this wasn’t him.

    Thanks for the great season last year. I’ll root against you this year, but will respect you going forward.

  21. The patriots fans are upset that their team was used like a 3 dollar hooker. They got their Super Bowl victory and now it’s time to get paid. I don’t see the problem.

  22. Lost in this is the fact that some idiot patriots fan decided to throw a tantrum at Revis for helping his team win a Super Bowl and then get paid top dollar for his services elsewhere.

    I feel bad for true patriot fans because of idiots like this.

    Like I needed another reason to hate bandwagoner fans of any team.

  23. As an IT Manager, I have news for you. Right skill set and ANYTHING can be hacked. The military has some of the best security features and firewalls in the country, and even they were hacked.

    Happens all the time, doesn’t always make the news though.

    Revis should expose all the cheating the Pats are doing
    —————————————–
    Sure, so many have come forward over the last 14 years. Like – none. Even the really angry players, like Seymour, Milloy, and Ted Johnson. However, most former Pats players that were traded or released, including Wilfork, Mankins, and McGinest remain Pats at heart.

  25. Anyone who think Revis said this actually a Morons…

    For past YEARS with Revis in NFL; He wouldn’t go off HUGE like this… Revis is strictly ALL Professional worker. He can talk trash but in intelligence responds, not that cheap hacker slang trash talking.

    Anyone who really know Revis, will know the huge difference of Hacker and Revis trash talking.

    ——————–
    I doubt there is a team in the league that won’t accept a one year contract for a shot at a championship. Revis was a huge part of the Pats SB, and this Pats fan will always endorse that signing. The money Revis received from the Jets could not be matched without some serious consequences. Mind you, the 2016 3rd round compensatory pick is an acceptable consolation prize. A tampering bonus pick would be a nice add-on.

  27. Revis should expose all the cheating the Pats are doing.

    All those former players, some leaving on bad terms with axes to grind, yet not one ever mentioned cheating as part of the formula for Pats dominance. Not one. EVER. What a coincidence. Haters and conspiracy theorists probably believe they brainwash them on the way out the door.

  28. Kinda funny that 90% Patriot fans are SOOOOO bitter, and easily gloat into believing that Revis is trash talking.. I guess Pat Fans want it to be true because they are emotionally stupid and always let their emotions get best of them without thinking first.
    such as this, “would REAL Revis do this talking?”

    No, not ever, period…

    He is the face of big market business, such as Nike…

    He earn highest pay in NFL history, and you think he dumb enough to earn that and type that trash talking?

    Lol.. Sooo many conflicts, and yet you Patriot Fans WANT it to be true. That spell out desperate hates, Its like the Japanese Grudge, YA CANT LET GO REVIS!!!!

  29. Funny how Pats fans claimed he was the best cornerback in the league and here he is trash talking the organization after he leaves. His account was hacked, right. Just like that excuse is always brought up everytime this happens.

  30. Who really cares what he says or thinks, he’s not anyone’s friend or family. He’s an employee right now of the NY Jets he on
    Y has to perform to earn his check, he won with NE big deal they win every year, he will go down as a very great DB in this era, who always chased the money, but most anyone would chase the money.

    Anyone else see the irony here? Typical NE fan!!!

    Well said. It’s too bad there are so many knuckleheads on here, and any other blog for that matter. Half of them are kids in their early to mid teens or younger, and another quarter of them are obsessed adults. Darelle Revis is intelligent, and a pretty calm guy. He doesn’t talk trash in the media and doesn’t really on the field either. He does his job and does it well. He has played his cards perfectly throughout his career to maximize his income during his tenure as an NFL player before Father Time catches up and he can’t do it anymore. He understands how this is a business, and to come out and say that on Twitter only hurts him. He wouldn’t do anything that stupid as it would hurt him long term. I actually believe he got hacked. I am not a fan of the Jets or Patriots, and I have no dog in this fight, so my opinion is completely unbiased.

  33. from what I’ve seen of D. Revis on the field and in interviews those comments seem very out of character, granted anyone can lose their cool and flip out on a hater… and if big corporations like Sony can have their account hacked, none of us are safe from it either

  34. This was obviously the work of a hacker. You can tell from where Revis allegedly says “I got a ring. I’m paid and worth more than you”.

    Revis would never mention his SB ring – only the part about getting paid. Because as anyone who has followed Revis’ career knows, it is ALL about the money with him. He couldn’t care less about winning, so long as he extracts every last dollar.

    Just look at what Revis just did. He left a Super Bowl champion team to sign with a last place team, and reportedly over not that much more money.

    Don’t get me wrong – he has every right to earn as much money as he can convince any team to pay him. I don’t begrudge him that.

    Let’s just not pretend that winning is Revis’ number one priority. He would have signed with the Raiders, or jaguars, or any team with no hope of competing, had they offered him a nickel more than the Jets.

  35. ” Again, Revis claims his account was hacked. If it were, the hacker missed a golden opportunity to express a lot more creativity and to create a lot more havoc.”
    //////////////////////////////////////////////

    Revis is lucky the hacker was a foul mouthed idiot. If the hacker had been more subtle and at least somewhat civil, Revis would have been under much more scrutiny.

  36. Clearly, he was hacked. No one with the brains of a head of lettuce thinks Revis wrote those comments. Hence, the debate on the Internet….

  37. Leave twitter, facebook and instagram to the teenage girls they were made for. “Hacking” problem solved

  38. He did Bill and Tom a favor? No, he did it for himself. He went to the Patriots to re-establish his market value. You get to play in Super Bowls when you’re with Tom & Bill. The’ve been there 5 times before without him. He had a great year, but did no more of a favor than Edelman or Gronkowski.

  39. Relax, folks. None of the messages from Revis’ account asked for more money or threatened to hold out, so he probably didn’t write them.

  40. That picture pft used……. Am I the only one who gets it?

    —————————–
    Florio is an evil genius, and I say that approvingly.

  41. I hope he plays every game of his new contract. He can then add all the wins together, and see if it comes close to what he won with the Patriots.
    Some guys like dollars more than wins.
    Leave him alone to sleep in the bed he chose.

    *************************************************
    I think Revis err the “hacker” is saying is he took less money to play for the Pats. Which is true he had offers for more than what the Pats paid him…

    I’m a die hard Pats fan and I’ve got no problem with anything he said….

    Other then why are you letting trolls get to you Revis??? I mean seriously….

  43. I think maybe the reality of what he did in leaving the Patriots for the Jets just sunk in… Well maybe after he polished off a 5th of Jack that is…. He’ll get his money with the Jets & his only ” Hardware” with the Pats….that’s the definition of IRONY right there!!!
    Awesome!!!

    Hi

    Can someone please translate this comment to English for me?

    Thanks!!!!

  45. Not a Pats fan, but watched this year’s run. Although Revis got some highlights, he was beat more often than not. Not much of a drop off to lose him.

  46. All kidding aside, ask yourself this question. Who has the biggest motive to hack Revis in an attempt to hurt his brand/image?

    Answer: A Patriots fan

  47. He only had one good year left in him, bill got a Super Bowl and the jets paying a ton of cash to have him back. ( cherry on top) Looks like he’s back to being an idiot again and holding the jets for ransom. Great player but without the best organization in football helping hold him in check he’s back to being a jet!

  48. Revis has acted like a classless punk ever since he left the Patriots. On the other hand, he’ll fit in just fine with the freak show known as the NY Jets.
