PFT- Shortly after Junior Galette was cut by the Saints, someone took to Twitter and blasted the team, some players and coaches. Some websites published the Twitter rant and said that it was written by Galette, using his girlfriend’s Twitter account.
But Galette says that’s not the case.
“I don’t even have a Twitter. I haven’t used it since January. Neither does my girlfriend,” Galette told Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate.
Well, well, well, it looks like it's time for me to eat my words. Anyone got a glass of water? With the amount of blogs I have written criticizing Junior Galette the last week this looks to be quite the meal. All this time, I just assumed the guy that was ranting, raving, and exposing the inner workings of the Saints locker room was their bitter, scorned, recently unemployed linebacker. How could I do such a thing? Such a callous, presumptuous move to blame a knowledgeable, yet uneducated, series of Tweets on a player that has been able to handle social media so swimmingly to this point in his career. So easy for me to type away at my computer incessantly bashing an ex-Saint without even confirming the truth. Silly me. He doesn't even have twitter. Jesus Bob, check a handle for once in your life. Are you just going to believe every person on the internet that claims to be the significant other of a professional athlete? Be more naive. Clearly my allegations of libel were misguided. They should have been directed at the other person that has a big mouth and a huge ax to grind with the organization. I'm not exactly sure who else that would be, but apparently it's not Junior Galette. Don't believe me? Just ask him.
I suppose it's possible that Galette, or his girlfriend, weren't responsible for the slanderous accusations that littered some random timeline. However, when you are notoriously a loose cannon that is capable of the most child-like antics you no longer get the benefit of the doubt. The NFL isn't like the court of law. You can be guilty until proven innocent. Just look across the landscape of the world wide web Junior. It's not just Saints fans, no one is questioning who composed those tweets. We don't just think you did it, we are damn near certain of it, and now we are just waiting for you to be stupid enough to accidentally confirm that you did it. Shouldn't be long now...
