Atlanta Falcons’ Roddy White slams ESPN for Aldon Smith coverage


Oh boy – he’s at it again.

I can just envision some poor Atlanta Falcons public relations intern smacking his or her head as wide receiver Roddy White unleashed another one of his famous Twitter rants, this time directed at ESPN’s NFL Countdown who has been covering the Aldon Smith situation non-stop.

The 49ers’ Smith of course was arrested Friday morning after allegedly driving drunk and crashing his car.

White, not happy with the bashing Smith was receiving from the hosts, suggested he didn’t believe that any of them (Chris Carter, Tom Jackson, Keyshawn Johnson) had never drove drunk:

Watching nfl countdown and they talking bad about Aldon smith but I’m willing to bet Keyshawn Tom and cris have all driven drunk no doubt

Aldon smith isn’t right in any way form or fashion but come on guys don’t act like you never did it you just got away with it

Roddy’s probably not happy to see the guys slamming his friend for a poor decision, but, he may have went about this one in the wrong way.

    Roddy White is such an idiot. Maybe your “homeboy” shouldn’t have been out drinking and driving at 7am on a Friday morning. If he would have injured or killed someone, Roddy’s idiot ass would be singing a different tune. Shut up!

  • Rick D,

    Because calling out old jocks on their hypocrisy it totes wrong, yes/no?

    People fear a pro player that is not all “yes-massa” to the plantation known as the NFL.
