People are going to disagree with writers. It's the circle of life.
Fox Sports' Clay Travis probably knows more than anybody about people disagreeing with his opinion. Sometimes players are at the point where they just can't take it anymore. Travis recently wrote about the DA's decision to drop the charges against two Alabama players, and mentioned that there are other people who work harder than athletes.
Alabama's Blake Barnett and Mekhi Brown were not going to let that column slide lightly.
Sounds like something an unathletic person would say. "Ignorance is bliss." pic.twitter.com/phuc1teBwp— B² (@Blake8Barnett) June 20, 2016
Great point. Funny how there's a misconception about the work athletes put in. College athletes have 12+ hour days. https://t.co/78tZtVE86z— B² (@Blake8Barnett) June 20, 2016
Put them in our shoes and they'll quit lol. There is a reason why jobs prefer former athletes over the reg students https://t.co/HBrLgYG9PE— Khi (@MekhiBrownn) June 20, 2016
Travis decided to respond to their comments shortly afterward, and obviously Barnett still wasn't going to let it go.
Bama QB thinks athletes work hard compared to doctors, lawyers and investment bankers. So wrong. https://t.co/vkDvefxSU0— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) June 20, 2016
@ClayTravis Sounds like you have the personal experience of being an athlete, doctor, lawyer, and investment banker.— B² (@Blake8Barnett) June 20, 2016
@ClayTravis You're comparing something where there is no need for comparison. No need to dig through things to cause controversy.— B² (@Blake8Barnett) June 20, 2016
Former Crimson Tide player Mike Johnson attempted to school the young guys on the art of Twitter.
These young #Bama players will come to learn that responding to click bait writers on Twitter is exactly what those writers were hoping for— Mike Johnson (@MPJohnson79) June 21, 2016
