Roddy White Apologizes to Fantasy Owners on Twitter After Week 1

Roddy White must be involved with fantasy sports in some way.  The reason I say that is because he obviously understands us.  Unlike Arian Foster who has no idea what fantasy football is all about, White knows NFL players in the modern era have added responsibility.  It is no longer sufficient to simply help your team win games and fulfill your contractual obligations.  Professional athletes — mainly skill position players — have a responsibility to us fantasy owners week in and week out.  Why else would we spend countless hours of our lives trying to assemble the best possible fantasy team?

Most, if not all, of the Falcons players would probably love to have their week one performances back.  In a game that was expected to be relatively tight, the Bears owned the Falcons and came up with a 30-12 victory.  White, who had 8 catches for 61 yards and no scores, felt he owed his fantasy owners an apology on Twitter after the game.

LB and the rest of your fantasy owners appreciate the love, Roddy.  Just don’t be so hard on yourself.  It’s the first game and the eight receptions helped ease some of the pain in PPR leagues.  Just make sure you show us that greatest show on turf business you were talking about as soon as the Falcons return home.

    It’s okay Roddy, coincidently I have both Roddy and Arian on my team (Big Ben, Gore too). I got faith though. Got much love for Mr.White, he’s the best receiver in the league!

    Go get em Roddy!

    Don’t worry about it Roddy, not every week can be a 90/1 week.  Just go out and blow it up next week.

    I hope Roddy is just joking. Tell these fantasy owners to get a life and pay attention to the games

    I accept your apology, Roddy.  However, I was much happier to see my Bears knock the snot out of you guys than celebrate a measly fantasy win. 

    That being said, you better step it up next week.

    Screw the fantasy players.  FOOTBALL IS A TEAM SPORT ABOUT WINNING.  NOT ABOUT RUNNING UP STATS TO APPEASE A BUNCH OF SELFISH LOSERS WHO CARE MORE ABOUT THEIR OWN LITTLE FANTASY NOTHING THAN THE REAL TEAM GAME.

    Reminds me of the board GAMES we played when I was a kid.  Fantasy players obviously have too much time on their hands to care so much for something that MEANS NOTHING, except to the self-centered fanrasy players!

    Roddy white ought to worry more about his team’s lousy loss to the Bears than about a bunch of overgrown children.

       I like to play fantasy football, it’s fun, but I don’t think the players should worry about it, and I do care more for the game, I would love to win the league championship, but given the choice of that and the Packers winning the super bowl , I’ll take the super bowl.

    There are some die-hard Falcons fan out here. I could care less about fantasy points, I care about this so called Greatest Show on Turf that you predicted. Unfortunately, the offense showed the skills of the 1966 Falcons. I guesss I should have figured the team would regress into a typical Atlanta team…no heart and no potential. The Offensive line folded which led to Ryan’s typical choke job whenever there is pressure. Offense help the defense.

    Take note of the Patriots offense. When the Birds can be that efficient, then we will have arrived. Right now, I don’t think we can hold a candle against any of the elite teams. I am not judging on the Bears game alone. I am judging on history and the lethargic / predictable play calling.

    I understand why he is apologizing but it happens, the guys that messed up everybody was players whom drafted Peyton Manning, Arian Foster and even kicker Nate Keading should explain something.

    Roddy:

    Please be more mature than this.  You are a professional FOTBALL PLAYER, not a FANTASY Wide Receiver. I can understand you wanting to play better, but do it for the Falcons football team, and let the Fantasy stuff handle itself.  Get caught up in WINNING not fantasy stats.

    What does the Falcon Defense need?  Jay Cutler looked like a perennial All-Pro vs our defense.    Is it the defensive play-calling or do we need better personnel?
