Doug Gottlieb gets ratio’d for worst tweet ever about Andrew Luck

Doug Gottlieb

Congratulations to Doug Gottlieb for inserting himself into the Andrew Luck retirement story with the worst tweet possible on the matter.

Gottlieb, a former college basketball player and current FOX Sports Radio talk show host, ripped Luck for retiring. He called Luck a “millennial” and said the quarterback was retiring because rehab was “too hard.”

Here we were thinking it was bad of Indianapolis Colts fans to boo Luck, and Gottlieb somehow topped them.

Since 2015, Luck has suffered:
– torn labrum in shoulder (he played through this injury in 2016)
torn cartilage in two ribs
lacerated kidney
– partially torn abdomen
– at least one concussion
– current ankle/calf injury that led to his retirement

A hit Luck took from Danny Trevathan in 2015 left a doctor saying the injuries were consistent with a car crash victim.

Luck has always had a true love of the game and been one of the most physical quarterbacks when he’s played, going back to his college college days. He is a tough dude who played through injuries and never shied away from contact. Walking away from football after being broken by the injuries and rehab is a personal choice that he is free to make. We will miss watching him but understand his difficult decision. It’s a shame there are knuckleheads out there like Gottlieb who don’t get it.
