Sharper: 'You done went too far'
By Kevin Seifert
Well, I was ready to be done with X-Files and so was Minnesota coach Brad Childress. New Orleans Saints safety Darren Sharper, however, was not.
Sharper just let loose with an angry (I think) three-tweet volley in response to the doctored Osama bin Laden photograph posted Tuesday night by Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe. Here you go, and game (back) on:
sharper42 @vshiancoe ok homeboy you done went too far, making me out to be something that has brought this country alot of heartache.
sharper42 Imma bust you right under your chinstrap from the first play on. I don't care about the fine. F the money Imma do it for the red,white&blue
sharper42 And you'll see me cuz I'll be dressed in black & gold. Protect your neck that's all the warning you get.
By the way, an NFL spokesman told ESPN's John Clayton that the ongoing Twitter exchange is a "team issue at this point."
UPDATE: Here is Shiancoe's reaction Wednesday night:
VShiancoe Those statements were the epitome of a crooked politician.. have some class "homeboy" @sharper42
