Roddy White of the Atlanta Falcons is known as a bit of an outspoken guy. Thursday, the Freeh Report was released and it painted Penn State and Joe Paterno in a bad light. White took this time to unleash a tirade against the school and the media on his Twitter account.
I love the fact that Roddy White is taking the time to read the report and then react about it. However, I think he might be going a bit too far. I understand that he is angry that things turned out the way they did at Penn State. However, he is opening himself up to a lot of critique by being mad about the wrong thing. The media did not cause this issue. Penn State did.
There will be a lot of people that will get mad at White for saying this stuff. He is a public figure and I bet the team is probably not happy with all of these tweets. He may be saying what all of us are thinking but the team is probably going to look at this differently. This could be press that the Falcons do not want because it sounds like White is defending the school.
I think White eventually realized what he was saying as he tried to cut everything off but it was far too late. I originally thought White was upset with the school for the right reasons, but a simply misread of words makes it seem like White is a moron. I don’t think a lot of people are going to be fans of White after this.
