Golden Tate Calls Suspended Teammates Selfish; Mad at Twitter Fans

Golden Tate

I don’t know if I would use the term selfish. Weed heads or drug addicts might be better way to describe some of the Seahawks.

With that being said Tate went on a mini rant about his teammates and Twitter Fans.

Seattle Seahawks receiver Golden Tate said cornerbacks Walter Thurmond and Brandon Browner were “selfish” by forcing the NFL to suspend them for substance abuse.

“Everyone should realize where this team is,” Tate said Tuesday on 710 ESPN radio Seattle. “You are affecting way more than yourself. I feel like that was kind of a selfish move on both those guys part.

Tate said he was disappointed in some of the vitriol over the suspension he has read on Twitter from a few Seahawks fans, which he felt didn’t represent the fans’ 12th-man tradition.

“They talk like Tarzan, but they really look like Jane,” Tate said of the Twitter commenters. “They write things they would never say to your face. But without these two guys [Thurmond and Browner], we still need the 12s to show Monday night, and we need to show up.”

Tate totally screwed up the Tarzan and Jane analogy.  It is supposed to be “looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane”, but I digress.
