Recently it came out that Asante Samuel had posted on his Twitter saying that the Eagles we’re going to win the Super Bowl this year. Now it is being said that the account that this was posted under does not actually belong to Samuel. Trent Cole also has an apparent fake account floating around.
This isn’t just happening in Philadelphia. The samea allegations have just come out with Demarcus Ware and it has also been said that Peyton and Eli Manning have fake accounts with thousands of subscribers.
Although NFL players are free to do what they want, I think it would be in most of their best interest not to join the Twitter craze. Short statements on Twitter can get blown out of proportion and you don’t need that type of distraction coming back on your team. So for the thousands of NFL players that read this, I’d recommend not opening your own Twitter account.
