Responding to a tweet from a Jets fan who asked him if he realized how lucky he was to be playing football in New York, Rhodes tweeted the following (edited for clarity):
"New York is an OK place to play! Very good place to live and do other things, but to play is OK. I love real fans like you, trust me. The only reason I would leave is to show the few that hate what I will do with another team and let them know that having me isn't that bad! I promise a lot of teams would love to have me as their problem!"
As Dave Chappelle once said: "What a biggedy bitch."
I've defended Kerry Rhodes a lot throughout the last few weeks. He's a Pro Bowl talent who's fallen off a bit and has made some awful plays. But I defended him. Well, not anymore. Rhodes could cry all he wants, but after this, he should not see the field for the New York Jets.
I have a similar view of the Terrence Williams Twitter scandal. Williams posed the hypothetical 'What if I wasn't a New Jersey Net?' The Nets being 2-20, you could understand why he'd be upset. But it's not something you put out publically. That's why he's sat for the past few games (funny enough, T. Will just checked in for NJ against Indiana). The same goes for Rhodes.
Say hello to James Ihegdibo, Jets fans!
