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.
Love my team!! Salute to AU players Great program but let me say this we win & lose as a team. If u blame this on 1 guy U aren't a true fan!— AJ McCarron (@10AJMcCarron) December 1, 2013
Mosley would take a more, shall we say, direct approach?
You fake ass bama fans stop sending threats to my teammate, you spoiled ******, respect what we do and know we all human! And that's REAL!— CJ Mosley (@TreyDeuce32RTR) December 1, 2013
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.
