It's a fact of life in sports. When a team loses the fans of that team are going to look for someone to blame for it. Unfortunately for Alabama kicker Cade Foster, he seems to have assumed the role of goat in Alabama's Iron Bowl loss on Saturday. However, the good news for Foster is that he has teammates who know better and are supporting him.

Both AJ McCarron and C.J. Mosley responded to those going after Foster on social media via their Twitter accounts.

Mosley would take a more, shall we say, direct approach?

A quick look through the mentions of Cade Foster's Twitter profile show why his teammates came to his aid -- some Tide fans even started a Facebook page to support the beleaguered Foster -- as the anonymity of the internet always seems to bring out the worst in stupid people.
