Ah, who doesn’t love a good Twitter throw-down? Looks like we’ve got a pretty good one on our hands between Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck and Jets CB Antonio Cromartie.

Earlier today, as reported by Pro Football Talk, Hasselbeck tweeted the following: “Somebody ask Cromartie if he knows what CBA stands for.”

Then, Hasselbeck quickly deleted it. It appeared Hasselbeck was taking a shot at Cromartie – and possibly at his nine-kids-by-eight-mothers career – after Cromartie bitched about the labor negotiations between the NFLPA and owners and called union leadership an a------.

Now, Cromartie has responded in kind. Wrote Cromartie: “hey Matt if u have something to then say it (sic) be a man about it. Don't erase it. I will smash ur face in.”

Now, all eyes turn to boxing promoter Don King. When can we get these guys in the ring? After all, we’ll need something to watch/cover when the players are locked out.

UPDATE (3:38 p.m.):
Bad news for those looking for a fight. Tweeted Hasselbeck: "Sorry for the joke man. No hard feelings. DB's & QB's have a hard time getting along I guess sometimes. lol"

FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT!!

Few would dispute that Cromartie sounds like an illiterate imbecile, but the guy does have the right as a player who just wants the labor situation to be resolved to make his opinion known.

Hasslebeck was out of line

You can't contradict yourself in the same paragraph.  If Cromartie isn't out of line for expressing his opinion that union leadership are assholes how can Hasselbeck be out of line for asking if Cromartie knows what CBA stands for?  Everyone is entitled to their opinion and everyone is entitled to share that opinion.  You can't lambast one for doing the same as the other. 

If anything, Cromartie's response was completely out of line.  His threats of bodily harm were completely unnecessary.

Back to the article, Cromartie needs to keep his piehole shut.  He has something to say about something every week.  Shut somebody down or win something, then you can talk.

jltexas, it's stupid that race has been brought into this, but since you decided to post stats, you actually made yourself look bad
white people make up ONLY 1.6% or so of the welfare, but they make up nearly 80% of the total population while black is just over 12%
So, for there to be almost 7 white people to every 1 black person in this country, to make up only 1.6% more of the welfare line is actually quite impressive.
Having said that, let's all work on getting everybody off welfare, regardless of color.

Few would dispute that Cromartie sounds like an illiterate imbecile, but the guy does have the right as a player who just wants the labor situation to be resolved to make his opinion known.  Furthermore, I'll bet there's a large percentage of NFL players that share his sentiment.  Hasslebeck was out of line, and if Cromartie really decided to "smash his face in", he would have it coming.  What's more, Hasslebeck came off looking like he had more than his share of X chromosomes in his retraction.

If I was Cromartie and my English sucked as bad as his - I'd keep my mouth shut.  No wonder he's so worried, if he had to get a job where he had to read and write, he'd be SOL.  Rehab?  Thousands of jobs lost?  Then figure out a way to end the greed on all sides - don't have little kiddie Twitter fights with your peers, especially threatening violence like an immature pansy.  Put a sock in it Antonio - every time you open your trap, you sound even dumber.

Hey you moron, there are many more WHITE people on welfare than black.  Get your statistics straight, and honestly, just watch Jerry Springer and you will see what I'm talking about.  Its an economic thing, bot a race thing
Traits of families on AFDC (1)

Race
--------------
White    38.8%
Black    37.2
Hispanic 17.8
Asian     2.8
Other     3.4



Notes on race

Blacks comprise only 12 percent of the nation, but, according to the above figures, they comprise 37 percent of the welfare rolls.
