Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis told the New York Post that “bitter” Jets fans have been harassing him since he was traded from New York to Tampa this summer.
“I get harassed every day on Twitter [by Jets fans], and I barely even tweet. And you just get tired of it,” Revis said after Tampa Bay’s 22-19 victory over the Dolphins at Raymond James Stadium.
“You’ve got to have a backbone, because guys are saying, ‘F–k you!’ and ‘I want to kill you!’ It’s crazy, but I’ve been getting death threats from them since my first holdout [in 2010]. It’s just bitter Jets fans.”
Revis says Jets fans don’t understand the NFL is a business.
“They’re still not over the fact that I’m not there no more, and they give me crap all the time on Twitter,” Revis said. “If they would understand the business of it and understand what happened, then maybe they would know and maybe they would quit trying to point the finger at me. That’s where it is.”
I agree with Revis, fans don’t understand the NFL is a business and they problem will never. That’s why they’re fans.
