I love football as much as anyone in this country and there was no bigger game this weekend than the Sunday Night Game between the 49ers vs. Patriots, but with that being said I am also a father, so I can not imagine the horror that the families of Newtown are going through now.
I don’t care if you are Democrat, Republican or whatever it doesn’t matter in times like this. It doesn’t matter if you like the President or not, put your personal feelings aside when a tragedy like this happens.
What this North Alabama player Tweeted was so inappropriate (and trust me he wasn’t the only one) it made me sick to my stomach. Not because of what he said about the President, because unfortunately the racism in this country is still deeply rooted, but it was disrespectful of those children and adults who lost their lives.
He doesn’t need just be kicked off the Football team he needs to be kicked out of the school.
Thx 2 everyone who brought the inappropriate tweet to our attention. @UNAAthletics does not condone. He is no longer a member of the team.
