CJ Mosley, Reggie Ragland call out Alabama fans for threatening Cade Foster

Cade-Foster-AlabamaAlabama fans are some of the most passionate sports fans in the country, so it goes without saying that Saturday was a painful day for those who support the Crimson Tide. Rather than taking his chances in overtime, Nick Saban opted to go for a 57-yard field goal that resulted in one of the most incredible endings you will ever see in a football game. Prior to that, placekicker Cade Foster missed all three of his field goal attempts.

Because Foster was so ineffective throughout the game, Saban had freshman kicker Adam Griffith attempt what would have been the game-winner. That does not mean Bama fans forgot about Foster’s horrible day. Not surprisingly, Foster had to deal with ridiculous threats on Twitter after the loss. Two of his teammates, linebackers CJ Mosley and Reggie Ragland, came to his defense.

The threats ranged from fans telling Foster to “please die” to a lot more graphic stuff that you can read over at Deadspin. Foster even changed his account avatar and the name on the account to “aaa” after the game, presumably to make it more difficult for idiotic fans to track him down.

This is not the first time we have seen fans hide behind computers and send death threats to players. Unfortunately, it also won’t be the last.

    As a lifelong 3rd generation Tiger fan whose grandfather started in the 30′s (no face mask back then) I must remind my Bama friends that this AL team has given them MANY thrills and enjoyment during the last 3 years. To turn on one of your own over ONE GAME is insane. Keep it classy, much respect to CJM and RR for defending their kicker.
