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"

We all know Cromartie is a hothead and runs his mouth off too quickly (probably too often), but...

1. Hasselbeck is an idiot for tweeting anything about another NFL player, especially one who he knows will respond (and now Matt looks like a sissy)
2. As far as Cromartie's "bitching" about the labor negotiations...he's totally right.

How much talk can you hear about this nonsense? If they want to get something done, stop talking to the public, go into a board room, and get it done. That's what's wrong with sports as a business. Big businesses are ridiculously inefficient with getting simple tasks done all too often. The whole thing has become a much bigger deal than it had to be. Sit down, and get it done. Cromartie is right. Both sides look like a bunch of aholes.

call him what you want and talk about his relationships with women and having children all you want. But he is the only player who has stood up and said this CBA is BS and the Union needs to get off their ass and do something and get it done. At least he has some balls, Hasselback has done shit in his career and now is a F___King loud mouth, he could not carry most QB's jock strap, but all of sudden at his age got smart and is a player rep and wants big bucks, for what he has never done shit but be a backup QB until lowely Seaattle took him and made him a starter. As much as I dislike the other dude he is smarter than Mr H in Seattle.

Wow....How mature.   Cromartie is a complete retard.  He is ruining whatever repurtation he has by the day x 2.  He's truly pathetic.  And I hope he reads this.  He embarrases himself every stinking weak.  THE SEASON IS OVER IDIOT.  Take a vacation.  It must be nice to afford one.  You overpaid, overrated, immature, FOOL!!!!!

Cromartie is an idiot! He is in a panic about not being paid cause he is paying for 40 people...his 12 or 13 hoes and his 27 or so kids.
He may play football...but he is just a plain loser..and a stupid one at that.
How in the hell does he not have any ounce of self control to keep it in his PANTS!  I hope there is a stoppage and we can see his poor ass have to go bag groceries to make ends meet!   HA  HA....dont like H Beck that much..but he is right..and should not have backed down.

Cromagmartie....come bash my face in in VA and you can owe more people money you ignorant ass.

Hasselbeck, if you have something to say, say it. If your having 2nd thoughts, don't hit enter. Cromartie is a loud mouth that needs to be called out. Sorry your not man enough to be the one who does it.
