Torrey Smith to disgruntled fantasy owners: 'Y'all make me sick'
Good day, sir!
That's the tone that Ravens wide receiver struck on Twitter after his team's big 18-16 victory on Monday night against the Lions. But why was he irritated? Maybe because some fantasy football players out there were upset that Smith caught "just" four passes for 69 yards and failed to score a touchdown.
I know, who cares, right? Well, a lot of people will get downright irate if Smith doesn't put up video-game numbers on a regular basis. Well, Smith had enough:
I hate y'all fantasy folks who are tweeting me about your fake team...y'all make me sick...Ravens win that's all that matters to me— Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) December 17, 2013
And then he said this:
I saw someone tweet that CJ is the worst player on the league....those type of fantasy fans are the ones that drive me crazy— Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) December 17, 2013
And added this:
Now some of you out there might think that Torrey is being a little too sensitive. But let show you a small sampling of the kind of tweets that NFL players have to put up with on a regular basis:
I am so pissed. I hate fantasy football. Screw megaton. Screw Moreno. Screw Thomas. And screw Justin Tucker!!!!— Brice (@brice_kuehne) December 17, 2013
Calvin Johnson I hate you so much right now it's your fault .— the name is x ✌️ (@YupXavier) December 17, 2013
People I want to die: Dennis Pitta. You ruined my night, my week, my season, and my life. That's all. Good night.— Eric (@erherrmann) December 17, 2013
Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles really got the brunt of it for daring to score five touchdowns against the Raiders. This you have to see to believe, although if you play fantasy football, there are guys like these in every league.
I hate fantasy football. The league I'm in is more rigged than the NBA draft lottery. I hope Jamal Charles gets Scurvy— Paul Lambert (@MeatSauce1) December 15, 2013
And my fantasy season comes to an end. So depressing. I hate you Jamaal Charles. Who the hell has two A's back to back in their name anyway.— Vladimir Joseph (@FCVladJoseph) December 17, 2013
By the way, did you see Ravens kicker Justin Tucker boot six field goals on Monday night? Oh, boy ...
Rest in Peace, Team YOLOSwag (420). Die slow, Justin Tucker.— Mr. Shepherd (@Shanebooby) December 17, 2013
Sigh, what a world.
