As you might imagine, the controversial nature of Tate's Hail Mary touchdown catch brought him some added attention on Twitter. Not all of it pleasant.
Anyone want some entertainment , read my mentions. The refs made the call not me. I did my job and competed for the ball.â Golden Tate (@ShowtimeTate) September 25, 2012
The man certainly did compete. Of course, a more, um, seasoned group of officials would've flagged Tate for a game-ending offensive pass-interference call. That's not on Tate, though.
Now off to read those mentions. Entertainment indeed.
