I can’t believe this needs to be said, but apparently, it does: Don’t send death threats to professional athletes.
Don’t voice them.
Don’t tweet them.
Don’t even think them.
After fumbling away Sunday’s game against the Colts, Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdez Scantling tweeted that he received threats on his life from fans. Packers fans.
Are you kidding me? You don’t think the guy feels bad enough already? He knows that he made a mistake. To be frank, the Packers should’ve closed out that game long before MVS was in that position to begin with.
The defense blew coverages.
Aaron Rodgers missed throws.
Players missed blocks.
Look, we all care about sports a lot. And it hurts when our teams let us down. But, at the end of the day, it’s just a game. A game played by real people with real feelings that are really fallible.
So, next time you’re angry after a game…think…take a breath…empathize…and please, do not press send.
