Re: "I will smash ur face in!" Cromartie and Hasselbeck in twitter battle

I just read this link, good journalism - there's a lot more to it than just some harsh words between two guys. I give props to Lewis & Dockett, they obviously grasp the situation & don't want one ignorant player's words to somehow become the public voice of the players. This could actually turn out to be something we look back at as the CBA negotiations unfold, or fold?

Everyone knows that Cromartie isn't the brightest bulb on the tree, so who cares what unarticulate comment he foolilshly made. I'm just sick and tired of ESPN exacerbating these petty issues, they're the TMZ of sports journalism.

Well that's ultimately why there's a difference between saying it behind closed doors and saying it for all to hear. If they're going to be a union they need to have one voice in this.

But it would probably be a bigger deal if a more respected peer had made these comments. I mean I know Peyton has made some comments in the past, but those I don't think have garnered as much reaction

Very true, but AC may represent the ignorant/ambivalent player & a lot of guys may actually support his general point. I'm not saying this twitter incident is going to spark class warfare between the players, but I think it shows how much of a divide there could be between the players. There will be guys that see the big picture & are willing to be patient, while there are guys like AC that are just demanding that it be resolved asap. If there's a work stoppage, those differences will come to the surface again. And like you said, there's a big difference when they speak publicly!

You're generous by calling it reporting. He takes a story, throws his spin on it (which usually involves as much drama and negativity as possible), and makes mountains out of mole hills.

I still read it daily though. It's a good one stop shop for what's going on around the league.

Twitter is going to be a real issue for the NFLPA to sort out. Players, for all intent and purposes are using these accounts for all the wrong reasons. What we're beginning to see now is pure nonsense, with no meaningful place associated with the game. If this kind of behavior is a sign of the times, then I fear what the future holds.

Re: "I will smash ur face in!" Cromartie and Hasselbeck in twitter battle

To a certain extent though, there is some truth to what AC is saying, however unintelligible it may have been. If what I gathered from it is correct, he's saying let's get this crap done before the current cba expires. Stop with the hand wringing and get to work. I don't blame him there. Few "businesses" hurt themselves more by lockout/strike than professional sports. To the fans its an affront to our senses considering the kind of money these guys make. Both sides have a lot to lose from a strike/lockout so it would make perfect sense that some players want the thing done. Look how long it took the NHL and MLB to make a comeback and the NHL still isn't fully back.

What it comes down to is these guys need to get a deal that's good for both sides done before the current agreement ends or at least extend the current one until they can get a new deal done. If ownership or the player's union doesn't budge, then do what you think is necessary but be ready for the consequences.

I foresee Goodell putting a ban on players' use of Twitter and social media sites...period.

The NBA has banned the use of it while they're "working", but it really seems to be more of a problem with NFL players (and Will Hill).

It could be justified. Any other person can not just publicly blast their coworkers and company without getting in trouble, the NFL is a business too.



We're fortunate this crap wasn't available when Riggo played, or Michael Westbrook.
