This week on Monday Night Football, Tom Brady passed for a New England Patriots record 517 yards. Though that was very impressive, that is not what I am writing about. During the game Chad Ochocinco, Patriots wide receiver, was only involved in 18 plays and only had one reception for 14 yards because he dosen’t understand the play book yet. The day after the Patriots win, Chad Ochocinco tweeted this, “Just waking up after a late arrival,I’ve never seen a machine operate like that n person,to see video game numbers put up n person was WOW”. Later that day, Ochocinco got torn into by Tedi Bruschi (former Patriot line backer). Basically Tedi said that instead of waking up late, he should be at the stadium watching film and going over the play book. Instead of being in aw on the sideline, Chad should have been a part of the game. Then, NBC Sports reported that Rodney Harrison, former Patriot and teammate of Tedi Bruschi, agreed with Bruschi by saying many of the same statements. The next day, Chris Carter went on the Mike and Mike show on ESPN radio and said the “Chad Ochocinco is not a smart football palyer…He had better put something on twitter because his game didn’t speak for himself.” Since these former football stars have bashed Chad, he has only sent out one tweet in the last three days. Before this incident, he was sending over 20 tweets a day. To pose a quick question, should professional sports teams be able to out law tweeting for their players like many college programs have. Twitter eventually gets athletes into trouble one way or another but fans love staying connect with their favorite athletes and celebrities.!/ochocinco
