    I understand that just because you are an athlete doesn't mean you have to be a role model, but suggesting that he had coke in his possession, even in jest, is just a stupid ******* move.

    Wish he wouldn't be on there but I don't really care. It seems the Twitter-verse usually brings only bad things for athletes. I am sure the Patriots have given an employee the task of following all their players' social media accounts so I am surprised, like the author, that the tweet is still up.

    Good for him. People take this **** far too seriously but we live in the 'i want to be offended' days so everyone with a stick up their ass is gonna decide this is a huge scandal even though it was as obvious a joke as you can come across.

    People have too much goddamn time on their hands if they're actually worried about what a professional athelete is tweeting.

    It is a really stupid joke. He probably should use better judgement in his Tweets. That said, I really don't give a crap what he writes on his Twitter account.

    Nothing to see here. Anyone who can't handle Spikes making jokes should either grow up enough to accept that some people have a more risque sense of humor than others or stop following his twitter and stories about it.

    I haven't seen anyone respond who says they truly care about it. Thus far all have taken either (paraphrasing) "wish he didn't do it but I don't care" or "he can do whatever he wants. Get over it."

    I don't care much about the dumb joke either. That being said, he put it up in public, therefore the public has the right to verbally crucify him for it if they want. In all, some of the public's reaction shouldn't come as a surprise to Spikes, the Patriots, or their fans.

    Who is saying that the public doesn't have the right to be up in arms about it?

    It's not a surprise but that doesn't make my eyes roll at any lower RPM.

    Twitter is for morons
    As to Spikes' tweet...let he who has never made a joke in bad taste throw stones
    I for one will not be throwing any
    Stuff I once thought was hilarious in my 20s just doesn't seem as funny anymore and I've hardly matured at all according to wife

    Yes, it was a joke. No, it was not a very good joke. It is not racist nor sexist, and does not contain any anatomical pictures that might shock or offend.

    Barring a libel claim brought from the North Pole, nothing to see here.

    I stopped following Spikes because he was going to give me diabetes. It's never too late to unfollow someone, or refollow them when they call Ray Rice Gary Coleman.

    He put it in public = he's an idiot and lacks sound judgement. Makes me wonder if he has any ability to be a leader as he lacks awareness.

    If he joked about it privately, I wouldn't care.

    He should know better than to bring negative attention for no reason.

    Luckily Goodell can't suspend someone for making a joke, though I don't doubt that he'd try.

    It's scary how America is drowning in coke and booze but won't allow somebody to make a joke about it. The only thing stupid about Spikes' joke is miscalculating the response of a politically correct world, especially his employer and Commisioner Goodwrench.

    Not sure what the big deal is; everyone knows why Rodulph's nose glows and who wouldn't need a nip of Jack every now and again when flying across New England in an Open Sleigh.

    Re: Just when you thought B Spikes was getting smarter

    Bwahahahahah, hohohohohoho, hehehehehehehe. He's got talent, Spikes.

    I thought that Eagles receiver had talent back in '04. I couldn't believe Rodney got all bent out of shape about that. The guy was funny. He tried to inject a little fun into WWIII I guess.

    And if you follow Rodney you know how overly serious the guy is. I don't think Rodney has a funny bone. He's in a war at all times. The enemy is within.

    Some will say, "Yeh but that motivated Rodney and we won the game." My response: If Rodney needed stupid motivation like that before the SB then that's his problem. The Patriots were the better team with the better QB and that is just a fact. They didn't win a SB because Rodney couldn't handle some harmless levity.

    I'm not seeing the no awareness = no leader comparison. As for him being an idiot, you're certainly entitled to you opinion.

    I couldn’t care less what he types on Twitter (and I follow him), as long as he shakes that ankle problem and is back to 100% for the playoffs, that's all that matters. We will need every bit of his run stuffing power.

    Spikes is hands down my favorite current Patriot. Love the way he plays on the field, love the emotion he brings to the game, and love how he really doesn't give a **** about being PC off the field. His tweets are easily the highlight of my feed. #POWwWwW

    Pretty sure BB DGAF about this nontroversy, and if Spikes is riding the pine, it'll be because they're resting his injury for the playoffs.

    If twitter existed during the playing days of Michael Irvin, all you shocked and angry Spikes bashers would be calling him (Spikes) a monk by comparison.

    What new moral outrage will tomorrow bring to the inhabitants of Ivory Tower?
