As the issue of concussions and head injuries in the NFL becomes more prevalent, so too do the discussions about it on Twitter. On Sunday night, Jeremy Shockey decided to get in on the act by preaching about the negative effects playing football has on the health of players.
He is not the first player to do this and won’t be the last, but what was particularly interesting about Shockey’s rant was the way he ripped Roger Goodell and basically accused him of lying to players for the benefit of the game. Here are a few of the tweets.
I’m in shape. Unfortunately, it’s the wrong one!!Thinking what team if any I should play for!! Really lucky I’m able to walk
