Roddy White Takes Shot At NFL Players' Association

Roddy White isn't shy especially when it comes to Twitter and on Monday he took the opportunity to take a shot at the NFLPA while many of his fellow players were bemoaning NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in regards to the bounty scandal penalties.

White responded to a tweet by NFL executive Andrew Brandt in regards to the deal that the players association brokered with the NFL this past summer.

"Don't know why we complaining we did this to ourselves," White wrote. "I applaud roger godell [sic] for brokering a hell of a deal and I blame nflpa for failing us. ... Whoever is the head of the baseball union that's who we need to hire they never have problems. ... Ok they have had problems but not on the same issues that where [sic] problems before they signed a new cba as a union. the nflpa fixed none of our real problems. ... Sold us a great dream about how good the deal was I didn't even want to sign that card because I knew the deal we signed was terrible."

Lets just say that White likely won't be receiving any Christmas cards from union chief DeMaurice Smith anytime soon.
