Leonard Weaver Puts Fan in His Place

Leonard_weaver

Leonard Weaver is somewhat known for his rather concise Twitter updates (see "The game was a great game. The young guys pulled it off." and "My stomach is hurting from the chicken I hurt too….."). So when we saw his Twitter rant in response to this tweet from @phillygm711, we had to celebrate the occasion.

Leonard put this dude in his place, but you're going to have to get over the jump to see it.  It's not quite as tolerant as Ryan Howard.

Let's set something straight here phillygm711, I don't know who you think your meeting at like that bro but you better get your mind right.

If somebody wants to honor me for whatever then they can. And as far as lasting went, its not the season, mistakes will happen.

That's why they call it the preseason.

So before opening your mouth and trying to dis somebody, get your stuff together.

And stop making demands about a sport that you probably couldn't play if you tried.

Your a freakin joke…..

Hey fellow tweeters we as players can take and even apreicate criticism to the upmost. However don't doubt but believe.

The Philadelphia Eagles are.going to be alright this year. Just be patient and wait.

Remember the season is a marathon, not a Sprint.

@phillygm711's response?  Tail.  Between.  Legs.

Full disclosure: Leonard Weaver does a lot of charity work and is usually good to his fans, but this was awesome.

  1. saw that coming over my feed last night and LOST IT. Even better rereading it the next day when sober. Love it!

  2. Hmmm…I dunno, I think Weaver’s response was kinda childish and lame. Couldn’t understand the first part, up to “That’s why they call it the preseason”, but why can’t a fan who watches games, maybe goes to them and puts some kind of money in their pockets (buying clothing, tickets, etc.) say what they think of their performances? These guys get paid millions, we don’t. And “…stop making demands about a sport that you probably couldn’t play if you tried”??? C’mon Leonard, grow up. Fans are allowed to criticize you; you better learn how to take it if you’re going to take all that money and put yourself in the public eye.

  3. Maybe it’s just because we’re all too interested in the Phillies right now, but I think the big thing is the lack of faith Eagles fans have right now! Leonard might have been a little off base by riddiculing the guy, but he’s probably right. And he’s definitly tired of his fan base not having his back. If the guy was a NY fan, whatever it rolls off his shoulder, but I was at Training Camp. I saw the doubt in the eyes of the fans, and it’s really gtting the players down. So maybe instead of negative comments all the time, we should encourage our players. We have so much to be excited about, but if we’re not excited, they won’t play to expectations, every team needs fans! Look at how the Saints fans transformed that place in the playoffs last year, no one wanted to go there! Trust me, we are going to be fine without what’s-his-name!
