New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie has caused a stir with his profanity-laced rant on the NFLPA leaders and the labor negotiations. He didn't back down from those comments on Thursday and another player in the league eventually had enough of his criticism.
According to ProFootballTalk, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck mocked Cromartie on his twitter account.
"Somebody ask Cromartie if he knows what CBA stands for," Hasselbeck tweeted. He deleted the tweet shortly after posting it.
The 26-year-old Jets star fired back with a tweet of his own.
"Hey Matt if u have something to then say it be a man about it. Don't erase it. I will smash ur face in," Cromartie tweeted.
@Hasselbeck hey Matt if u have something to then say it be a man about it. Don't erase it. I will smash ur face in.
Hasselbeck later apologized: "Sorry for the joke man. No hard feelings. DB's & QB's have a hard time getting along I guess sometimes. lol."
Baltimore's Ray Lewis and Arizona's Darnell Dockett also responded to Cromartie's Monday rant, in which he called union leaders "a-holes."
Cromartie said he didn't care about what Lewis and Dockett had to say and continued to argue about the labor talks.
