It wasn't just the media, the school and team considered those tweets as death threats.Yea, I feel for that punter. I'll say this:
- While he bobbled the snap, there sure were a LOT of MSU players there to get that punter and force a fumble after. I know blocking eventually breaks down, but the Michigan line can take some of the blame for the touchdown, not for the initial bobble.
- The media coverage was once again awful. All of these reports came out about "death threats" for this kicker. And what was the source? Random people's twitter posts, saying such things as "Drink Bleach" or something. Now, that's classless, but to represent THAT as a "death threat" on a kicker's life is just downright dishonest. However, the overall media has a long-standing agenda against football, and the overly-masculine mentality. They tried to further dirty it with the fallout of this fluke play.
PS. I should point out the worst tweets were deleted.
