First thing I can not stress enough.
STEVE SMITH WAS A FREE AGENT
Emphasis on the word FREE.
If you worked at T-Mobile and you decided to go to Verizon you wouldn’t expect to be treated like Steve Smith was in the Facebook postings above. It was even worse on twitter.
Here is what is really crazy. Smith was very classy leaving a thank you note on his Facebook page to Giants fans and any normal human being would be adult enough to understand it is just business and keep it moving.
I will always cherish my time in NY and the super bowl victory.. This was obviously not an easy decision for me or something i ever expected but unfortunately the business aspect proved that the eagles wanted me to be part of their organization MUCH more than the Giants did..
A special thanks to my WR buddies, coach Gilbride, all of u amazing fans on here, and the entire giants organization for drafting me.. Time for a new beginning…
Fan is short for Fanatic, I expect fans to be a bit crazy, but calling Smith a N*gger and wishing he dies? That goes way beyond fanatical.
99% of these people are cowards and miserable human beings who wouldn’t dare say anything close to this in Smith’s face. Racism exists in our society, but as you see it now comes a lot from a lot of anonymous people behind a computer with keyboard courage.
In reality these people are jealous of Steve Smith and athletes in general. They are so unhappy with their own lives they have to take out their vile frustrations online.
It is a truly pathetic and I pity people who would make these types of comments. When they look in the mirror I know they aren’t happy with what they see.
