The President addressed the nation Sunday night while the 49ers and Patriots were playing, so NBC cut away from the game and aired the speech. This prompted Bradley Patterson, a North Alabama football player, to voice his displeasure on Twitter.
Bradley Patterson, an uninvited walk-on long snapper, joined the team in the fourth week of the season, according to a UNA official.
He is no longer a member of the team, according to a tweet tonight by UNA Athletic Director Mark Linder. The tweet was confirmed to Al.com by a university official.
“Uninvited walk-on long snapper.” Talk about rubbing it in. North Alabama seems to have already scrubbed any evidence of Patterson’s involvement with the team from their website. Patterson has deleted his Twitter account. [AL.com]
