No More Bullying

Posted: August 11, 2014 in Sports

Most of you know that I have a tendency of getting blocked by athletes on our hometown teams.  Players like Jeremy Maclin, Dom Brown, Jason Babin, Brandon Graham, Vance Worley (who I’ve never said anything to) and Fletcher Cox (I will get back to him shortly) have felt that it would be in their best interest if they just blocked me on twitter so they didn’t have to see my tweets to them anymore.  Some would say I bully Philly athletes.  I say otherwise.  Out of all the players I have listed, the only one who had a legitimate reason for blocking me was Maclin.  I will never forget the night I tweeted a 10 tweet rant to him on his comments about the fans.  I knew that would land me on the block list and I was ok with that, for a while.  For three years, I tried to win Jeremy over.  I apologized, I had other tweeters plead with him to unblock me and give me another chance.  Hell I even had Derrick Gunn tell him to unblock me.  Nothing worked until the day twitter decided to unblock everyone.  When I realized I wasn’t blocked by any of these guys anymore, I was as happy as a kid in a candy store.  That happiness was short lived because twitter fixed the problem and I was blocked by all again.  Well everyone but Maclin.  He didn’t just unblock me, he followed me!!!  I promised that I would not be mean to him anymore and so far I have kept that promise.

This brings me back to Fletcher Cox.  Now, we’re talking about this big, mean defensive linemen.  He takes the field every game with the thought of ripping the opponents’ head off right?  What could a nice, sweet lady like myself do to piss him off so bad that when I asked him at training camp yesterday if he would please unblock me on twitter and he looked at me with hate and hurt in his eyes and yelled NO!!!!!  I tweeted one word to him, Omaha.  Can you believe that one word could bring out so much rage in one man that I thought he was gonna jump over the table yesterday and try to tackle me when I asked him to unblock me? LOL These players love, love, love when people praise them.  They always retweet the good things people say but if you criticize them…..BLOCK!  How can you play in this city and have such thin skin that you let something so stupid get you so angry. If you wanna play for a team where fans really don’t care about you, go to Jacksonville because this isn’t the place for you.   I have been called fat, ugly, a pig and so many things on twitter and I just laugh at the people and sometimes keep talking to them until they finally break down and realize I’m a cool person and he gets mad and gets his feelings hurt over Omaha?  This is the same guy who was mocking Peyton Manning with the Omaha during the game and now you’re mad that little old me tweeted it to you?  I’m not gonna just pick on Fletcher even though I think he was really rude yesterday about the whole thing but hey, whatever.  I want to get on all these players that don’t understand, we as fans, have never had an outlet to express our frustration with our teams/players when things aren’t going well.  Social media has given that to us.  If we are frustrated about a game, we want you to know. Now some people take it too far with their tweets to players, I mean, I hate seeing someone tell a player to kill themselves or they need to get out of town etc.  If I remember correctly, the only time I criticized a player for how they were playing was when I asked Jimmy if I could be his hitting coach so I could teach him how to not pop the ball up.  I wasn’t serious and I could tell he knew that by his response. 

So anyway, the point of this was, since the incident with Fletcher yesterday, I’ve decided I am only going to tweet positive things to these players from now on. I am done bullying these poor guys.  If they want someone to stroke their ego, I’m their girl. 

 

PS:  I might have over exaggerated Fletcher’s anger just a little.

    You better not stop. If they can take it everyday from the coaches throughout their lives, they can take it from anyone. They signed up for twitter. they better be ready to handle the fans. We are Philly fans and we fight.

    That’s what I’m saying. You are supposed to be these tough, violent football players and you can’t take a little criticism from fans?
