He then later tweeted ESPN reporting Michael's name is leading the handbag throw in NFL com by no one else expected that the road to. And on Twitter he got treated like the worst and Aaron Hernandez and it was like this was the worst crime against humanity. And while I would tweet this and it didn't seem kind of just like sophomore -- off on what is first and foremost he should be penalized two shots only from -- and it because -- does this read like between the high school freshman yes and like juveniles sophomore yes. Isn't the that it doesn't Michael -- the first thing he has to do is have thick skin as he goes in the NFL right -- -- gonna get on that heckled and opponent opposing players and maybe teammates will in my heart on the -- in court -- -- Make wisecracks and -- said he'll deal with these rated deal with it.
