Random acts of NFL player Twitter rage follow a distinct pattern:
1.Player A unleashes on Player B, totally out of the blue.
2.Player A fires back at hot-and-bothered Twitter followers. Then possibly rephrases/strengthens initial jab at Player A.
4.Player B (totally falling for it) shoots back at Player A.
5.Cooler heads (i.e team suits or hangers on tied to the players' incomes) huddle with both parties.
6.Apologies are tweeted.
It followed the pattern to a T:
2.Like clockwork, Scobee responds to tensed-up followers: "Relax people. He's just a punk, which to me means he doesn't respect anyone or anything around him. Therefore, I don't respect him."
3.Time passes, and then step 4.
"This man @joshscobee is Waaaaaaay outta LIne!!," DJax tweeted back. "Stick to ya Own business.. Mind ya own!! I don't respect what u sayin.. Lil Boi status."
Likely forced into this by nervous handlers (step 5),*Scobee nails step6* and apologizes for his antics: "Shouldn't have called Desean Jackson that. I used the wrong words to try and make my point."
We believe that we've located the root of Scobee's Twitter anger.
That's right, shortly before tweeting his amped-up review of DJax, Scobee furnished us with this: "Just enjoyed some deer burgers off the grill."
Maybe mix in a salad next time, big guy.
Step 7 can't happen soon enough.
