Athletes Who Don't Really GET the Internet

The technologically impaired segment of the population has been decreasing in number exponentially every year for well over a decade. The Internet, which was once just a fascinating novelty, has been a transformative force that is now firmly intrenched in most of our lives. 

Which is why it's hard to believe that in this day and age, there are still so many people who don't seem to fully grasp the Internet. Athletes, in particular, seem to have trouble comprehending the vastness of its recesses. 

Or the full scale of their audience. 

Or the speed at which their boobery is disseminated. 

Or that just because you click "delete" after saying something terrible, that doesn't mean it ceases to exist. 

Or even the simple fact that not everyone on the Internet is exactly who they say they are. 

It all seems so simple, yet there seems to be a ridiculous Internet controversy every other day. Athletes mouthing off on Twitter are the main offenders, but there are also technologically deficient dummies with a striking lack of self-awareness. 

Let's take a look at some athletes who just don't seem to get the Internet.
