Todd Herremans' Twitter is full of hilarious who's its and what's its galore. He pissed off a few people back in the fall when he said that True Blood was a good show until it hit us with "a barrage of homosexuality." Funny. True. But something the public doesn't take kindly to.
Yesterday, Herremans was at it again, as he Tweeted about rapist Ben Roethlisberger's apparent newly-formed stance on pre-marital sex – or at least living together:
Good for YOU, Todd Herremans. That takes cojones most NFL players don't have. After some backlash, he later backed-off a bit, saying:
Funny how it takes all day to get negative feedback from a tweet… If u read it correctly.. It reads "good for him"
Still not buying that the first Tweet wasn't sarcastic. But whatevs.
Mike Florio Pro Football Talk picked up on the story earlier today… and then took a very out-of-context shot at Michael Vick: [Pro Football Talk]
Fine, but the use of “Rapistberger” could cause a reasonable person to think that Herremans was clubbing Ben over the head with his past. If, for example, someone were to say as to Herremans’ quarterback, “From vicious, cold-blooded, methodical, calculating dog drowner/electrocuter/slam-to-the-ground-until-deader to Comeback Player of the Year . . . Good for him!,” that could be viewed as a slap against Mike Vick.
It's actually a good analogy… – quietly backs out of the room –
At least Roethlisberger didn't turn gay – like all those vampires – otherwise we would have been looking at something like "Roethlispberger." No one wants that.
