Roddy White rips NFLPA, applauds Roger Goodell


Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has never been shy about expressing his opinions on Twitter. He wasn't happy about the labor deal when it was initially agreed upon last summer, has been outspoken about former players suing the league, and he wasn't happy with his ranking on NFL Network's "Top 100: Players of 2012."

With players criticizing NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell over the discipline handed down to four current and former members of the New Orleans Saints, White used a Monday afternoon tweet from former NFL executive and player agent Andrew Brandt as a springboard for criticizing the deal the NFL Players Association made with the league.

The following is an unedited stream of tweets from White:

"Don't know why we complaining we did this to ourselves," White wrote. "I applaud roger godell for brokering a hell of a deal and I blame nflpa for failing us...

"Whoever is the head of the baseball union that's who we need to hire they never have problems," White said. "Ok they have had problems but not on the same issues that where [sic] problems before they signed a new cba as a union...the nflpa fixed none of our real problems...Sold us a great dream about how good the deal was I didn't even want to sign that card because I knew the deal we signed was terrible."

And in case you were wondering, no, White is not a Falcons' player representative.
