As if the country needed another excuse to despise greedy, spoiled, privileged athletes...

According to Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, Redskins rookie linebacker Robert Henson was extraordinarily perturbed by the loud booing directed at his team during an ugly 9-7 victory over the hapless Rams on Sunday. Therefore, he let loose with this Twitter update:

All you fake half hearted Skins fan can .. I won't go there but I dislike you very strongly, don't come to Fed Ex to boo dim wits!!  No I didn't play but I still made more than you in a year and you'd [gladly] switch spots with me in a second, I was talking to the fans [who] said the crazy stuff, I'm use [to] heckling but I've never been booed in my own stadium. . . .  The question is who are you to say you know what's best for the team and you work 9 to 5 at Mcdonalds. . . .


Never mind the timing of the tweet and the fact that his team played like a pack of bums...

Never mind that this sorry excuse for a human being has been in the league for about 90 seconds...

Never mind that this punk didn't play a SINGLE DOWN that game...


Who the hell is this turd to throw out such an enormous insult to working Americans - many of whom have to work two (or more) of these "McDonalds" jobs just to put food on the table?

Well, I have a "tweet" for you, Robert:

I am going to email the Washington team personnel office three times a day until they release your ass - and I urge anyone who agrees with my outrage to do the same and send a message to spoiled jackasses like this who have such a small opinion of what REAL working Americans mean to this country.

By the way, here was ESPN's Mike Greenberg's take on Henson's "tweet":

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
