NFL players have to deal with so much that the normal person wouldn’t normally have to experience. Fans are always willing to praise the fans for good play, but they are also willing to turn on the players for poor performances.
Some fans are so emotionally invested in the game that they take things so far, especially fantasy football owners who decide to worry only about their team’s success and not the well being of the players.
Then, there are those people like Twitter user @DMMeBoo who are a special kind of stupid.
Andre Rayner, as his name displays, decided to go on a rant on Twitter prior to Monday Night Football and he threatened death to New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs in his family if he didn’t find the endzone.
Seriously, people get that involved and don’t worry about how silly they will look.
Jacobs shared the messages on Twitter:
Look at what we deal with.. pic.twitter.com/YfP960gShS

It is shocking to see this kind of behavior from people and it is unfortunate that players have to deal with it.
Let’s hope that somehow Andre Rayner is held responsible for his threats and faces some sort of punishment for crossing the line.
