Jeremy Shockey Rips Referees, Claims Twitter Account was Hacked

Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey ripped the referees for taking a touchdown away from him in the third quarter, but later claimed his Twitter account was hacked. With the Panthers down 24-20 to the Bears Sunday, Cam Newton hit Shockey for a touchdown. The touchdown was taken of the board because Shockey was flagged for offensive pass interference. Carolina ended up attempting a field goal that was blocked and they never took the lead.

After the game, the following message was sent from Shockey’s Twitter account:

Not long after the tweet was sent, one of Shockey’s friends claimed he was the one who sent the message. The “friend in Charlotte” apologized to Shockey for sending the vulgar tweet from the tight end’s account. Shortly thereafter, another tweet came saying “Wow never leave your acct open when on a road trip. Thx Pedro. Lol but some of it’s true.”

And of course came the obligatory “Got hacked by a friend,” tweet. I don’t know what the NFL’s policy on hacked accounts is, but I’m guessing they’ll treat the tweets just as if Shockey had made the statement to a group of reporters. It certainly didn’t help that he said some of the complaints were true.

Regardless, he certainly had a gripe. That was a weak pass interference call and it cost the team. But if he did feel the refs screwed up the call, why claim the account was hacked? If you’re going to go in, go in all the way. Don’t pull a Paul Pierce, stand by your word!

    He’s right to be pissed. It was a piss poor call that costed Carolina points and the win, one of  3 bad calls in fact. Refs screwed the Lions over against Chicago last year, and they screwed Carolina over against them this year, as well as have made several horrific calls in Carolina games in particular. I’m starting to wonder if the integrity of the game is being influenced by Vegas odds and big money. Seems like a conspiracy as the refs have screwed Carolina out of 2 wins, and damn near screwed them against the Jaguars last week.

    At least he had a comment, not not just an incoherent bunch of drivel.  Are you bi-polar……or just an @ssh01e all of the time?  Besides the fact that I actually enjoy NC when I’m there, he’s spot on about Shockey.

  • Brian Newell

    Another jerk off  so all I had was some incoherent bunch of drivel but what your saying is the same thing so you must be Bi-polar or are you just an @ss all the time? Nobody said you didn’t like N.C.  I could care less about the Shockey comment. Seems to me your just like him a trouble maker why don’t you do us all a favor go chop off your b@lls so you don’t  contaminate the rest of the world with your gene pool.
