Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan was an absolute imbecile on Sunday when he threw the ball at an opposing defender and cost his team any chance at a comeback to win the ballgame. Morgan received a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct that pushed the team out of field goal range.
As a result of the penalty, the Redskins were in deep field goal range and eventually missed the game-tying field goal.
“I heard everything, especially when they got you on Twitter and they start sending the death threats and wishing bad on your family and your first born and things like that, you see it all, you hear it all,” Morgan told the Washington Times. “You don’t got no choice but to see it all and hear it all. But you never let it get to you, especially me being from D.C.”
The fans even went on far on Twitter as to say, “I will kill you in your sleep you autistic [expletive].”
It goes to show the immense pressure that professional athletes face and the type of personality that they will need to make it with the company and business.
It also goes to show the completely irrational thinking that some fans can have when following the game.
Thankfully for Morgan, no fan has been crazy enough to follow up on his absurd and unreasonable threats.
