Atlanta Falcons fans are not happy about the team’s most-recent loss. It came at home Sunday against what had been a struggling Miami Dolphins offense, led by Jay Cutler.
But one fan might have taken his frustration a bit too far on Twitter. He called out the Falcons, specifically starting safety Ricardo Allen. It didn’t go too swimmingly for the fan in question after he sent Allen the following tweet.
“You disrespected us bad I missed my son’s game to watch you guys play absolutely (expletive) not acceptable for Super Bowl team,” the tweet read.
Well, Allen wasn’t having any of it.
You disrespected your son by skipping his game to come be a fan at something you have no ties to. Get priorities right before coming at me

That pretty much puts the fan’s priorities in perspective. In no way is Allen wrong. If the fan did in fact miss his son’s football game to watch the Falcons play, he might want to look in the mirror before criticizing others.
To be fair here, a lot of fans invest themselves fully in their teams without having any specific ties to said team. Even then, it was an odd tweet for the fan himself to send to Allen.
As we’ve seen recently, there’s been no real shortage of NFL players taking to social media to respond to trolls. Allen is obviously no different here.
