Visanthe Shiancoe is known for saying and doing some pretty outrageous things, including tweeting a picture that accused Darren Sharper of being an Osama Bin Laden-like terrorist, but his latest shenanigan may be the most ill-advised of all.
It all began when Visanthe started tweeting his feelings about the NFL’s new safety rules, and specifically, the controversial call against Ndamukong Suh for unnecessary roughness on Jay Cutler this weekend. Nothing really shocking about that, given the number of players who’ve openly criticized this policy. However, Shiancoe then kicked things up a notch by appearing to suggest that the NFL has it in for the Lions. Shiancoe tweeted:
Now it’s always possible that Shiancoe meant something innocent by his tweet and I am wildly misinterpreting it. It’s always possible that the guy who bragged after his dong made it on national TV, pissed off Brett Favre by talking about his non-retirement texts with reporters and compared Darren Sharper to Osama Bin Laden was not actually accusing the NFL of conspiring against one of its teams.
Let’s hope Roger Goodell doesn’t also misread Shank’s intentions, otherwise Shank may find himself with a much lighter wallet. Does Shank hang out with Jesse Ventura a lot?
