Darrelle Revis spent five seasons in New York being a very good cornerback for the Jets and one season in NY being a very injured CB for the Jets. After the 2012 season, Revis was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This is going to come as a surprise to you, but some Jets fans have not gotten over this traitorous act and have taken to the Internet to voice their displeasure with Revis. From the New York Post:
“You’ve got to have a backbone, because guys are saying, ‘F–k you!’ and ‘I want to kill you!’ It’s crazy, but I’ve been getting death threats from them since my first holdout [in 2010]. It’s just bitter Jets fans.”
Bitter Jets fans? Why I never!
“They’re still not over the fact that I’m not there no more, and they give me crap all the time on Twitter,” Revis said. “If they would understand the business of it and understand what happened, then maybe they would know and maybe they would quit trying to point the finger at me. That’s where it is.”
Good luck with that. Asking Jets fans to understand a business is like asking them to not punch women in the face. [via NY Post]
