Welcome back to another edition of Rant My Life, where we take a look at the best #RML tweets from the weekend. In case you have not heard, #RML is a platform for you to complain about anything in sports. It is similar to FML, but just moved into the sports world. It mostly centers around fantasy football because, let’s be honest, we can all find something to complain about each week in fantasy football.
I had so much to #RML about this weekend I can’t even get it all out in this post. On one of my fantasy teams, I benched both Vincent Jackson and Josh Gordon in favor of Antonio Brown. The move ended up costing me my matchup. The worse part was I was ahead of my opponent by 60 before Monday Night Football. He had Peyton Manning, Eric Decker, Ryan Matthews and the Denver Broncos defense.
Thank you, Philip Rivers, for one of the worse displays of quarterback play I’ve ever seen in my life. He had six turnovers—five in the second half—and two were returned for touchdowns. The Denver defense scored 25 points, which is unheard of for a defense.
But Rant My Life is not only about fantasy football. It is very versatile. You could also #RML when your favorite team loses a big game or is blown out by their rival. In the case of one of my friends, he should have been using this hashtag all weekend.
Not only was his birthday on Sunday, but his favorite teams are the Texas Longhorns, San Francisco 49ers and Houston Texans. Every single one of his favorite football teams were destroyed in their games. It could not have been a worse weekend for him, and it was his birthday to boot.
He wasn’t the only one who had it rough though. Let’s take a look at the top 5 #RML Tweets from this weekend.
