Roddy White toughed it out Sunday afternoon and played in the Atlanta Falcons‘ season opener with a badly sprained ankle. You have to give him credit for taking the field, but his ankle clearly limited him, as he only caught two passes for 19 yards. Well apparently, White was receiving quite a bit of grief on Twitter from Fantasy Football owners who started him. Depending on the scoring system, White earned his owners anywhere from one to four points. Not exactly what your looking for from a starting receiver.
White then tweeted this out, which seems to be directed towards fantasy owners giving him flack:
No I can’t give out an injury report before the game. I play real football and it would be stupid to tip the other team off and say I’m hurt

This isn’t the first time the talented receiver has made comments that have raised eyebrows across the internet, and it likely won’t be the last. I get his frustration. It’s understandable for him to be upset that so many fans were voicing their displeasure with his performance, but here’s a better idea – don’t say anything at all.
He clearly views Fantasy Football as a joke, so why lower himself and make a comment like that? He was much better served to take the high road and just let the selfish morons who complained, deal with their own pathetic lives.
