You mad, bro?

Best exchange in the Twitter war: "I ain't your competition bro,@roddywhiteTV is!!!" "Remember that time the number of twitter followers mattered more than the production on the field? Me either." Revis. The use of "bro" by Revis is genius. And I'll pretend it was intentional and not inadvertent.

Got the best of Skip Bayless:

No Yes! Sherman


It's a close one, but Sherman gets the slight edge in this one with his recent TKO. But you know who the real winner is here? The internet.
