It looks like nonstop pressure from the Twitter world has won out with Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White. As most of you have heard by now, White told a fan on Twitter that he would give him season tickets if Mercer somehow beat Duke in the NCAA Tournament. The shocking upset happened, and White later said he was only giving the fan tickets to one game.
The 32-year-old veteran used the lame excuse that gambling is illegal in the NFL, though promising a fan tickets isn’t really gambling. The fan, Dylan Hoyt, was a great sport about the entire thing and said he did not want to become a distraction to the Falcons. On Thursday, White changed his mind and decided he will give Hoyt season tickets and then some.
@DHoyt77 2 season tickets, 2 SB tix, pregame sideline passes to game and a day at camp as my guest. How does that sound

Hoyt happily accepted the gift and took another jab at White over the Blue Devils’ early exit from the tournament.
