    You always get at least one idiot like that. Not worth the time of day.

    Was that Teenuh, or did she become a 49ers fan?

    I can't believe this gets national headlines. Out of millions of Patriots fans, one person makes an insensitive comment, so now the fanbase gets a bad rap? The problem isn't that there are always people that say stupid things, in every era and every region. That will never change. The problem is this hyper-sensitive world of twitter, blogs, facebook, where everyone has a podium and a sensationalist media where something like this counts as a news story.

    I try to tell my kids that if just 1 person might find it hurtful, then it's not a joke and most likely an insult (excluding hyper sensitivve people who try to find a fault with everything).

    A professional reporter, writing an article about a single tweeter in order to vilify a team you just beat and incite your powder keg fan-base is even lower and more despicable than even this tweet is.

    The tweet joked on a guy whose brother had just died in a tragedy all over a sporting even in which her chosen team lost. How is the report on the subject lower than the actual tweet when the tweet was the lowest of the low, typed out by human scum?

    The problem is that people lack common sense.

    I'm sorry, I don't think I'm going to be able to teach you the basics of journalistic integrity in just a paragraph or two.

    Of course, fool am I to expect such from sports hacks.

    I have a Bachelor's in mass communications. I then went back to school to study business because I hated the field. So please, I welcome your attempt to "teach me the basics of journalistic integrity". The bottom line is that the person that wrote a tweet joking on a football player about his brother's untimely death over the result of a football game is still the bigger scum than the reporter that reported it.

    I like how after she tweeted Cyberbullying was a hobby. WTF did she think she was doing? Common sense is becoming a lost art. Twitter is one of the worst things ever created. Before you had stupid people who were only known to the people around them now they are known to the world. I feel dumber being exposed to these morons on a constant basis.

    is that anything like the pathetic nitwits that jump in with both feet and believe that a tweeter is telling the truth?

    hey, I just tweeted I'm a Jets fan and the moon is made of green toe cheese and Rex eats it....does everyone love me now??

    This is just like after Joel Ward scored to end the Bruins season. They were all proven to not have been Bruins fans or were just Bruins fans for the moment. It sucks that this happened but in this day and age people do this get the attention they wanted. And these type of things put one or 2 comments on a fan base of millions.

    Please, lets get into an argument about semantics.

    Everyone just loves having to read the back and forth between two posters arguing about these things.

    Is talking about what a single, deranged tweeter said "worse" than the actual tweet?

    Maybe not, despite my having literally said otherwise.

    The original Tweeter was read by 53 people.

    Reporter writes about the Tweeter and quotes him and 53,000 people have now read said Tweet.

    Which was more harmful?

    And I'm sorry, it is unprofessional to write an article about a single, unknown tweet(er). The writer of this article had an agenda. The Tweeter was just the tool.

    I read blogs when people die all the time, and especially the Yahoo blogs.

    There are not only a couple comments like that one, but hundreds.
