Robert Henson Only Respects the Opinions of Taco Bell Employees

Robert Henson has made a big splash today with a ''tweet'' from last evening.

When I first heard about this, I thought,  "Who?" Then I wondered why the guy behind Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear was so concerned about Redskins fans. Soon I learned that Henson actually plays for the 'Skins (sort of). Here is what Henson said.

"All you fake half hearted Skins fan can .. I won't go there but I dislike you very strongly, don't come to Fed Ex to boo dim wits!!

He continued, "No I didn't play but I still made more than you in a year and you'd switch spots with me in a second ... The question is who are you to say you know what's best for the team and you work 9 to 5 at Mcdonalds."

All of this because of boos? How could Henson be so naive and immature? Sixth-round draft picks who are not contributing on the field should probably not be criticizing the fans.

I would be interested to know if anyone can defend Henson on any level. I really do not understand where he is coming from. Maybe I do not understand the plight of entitled, spoiled, private school, scholarship-awarded, young football players. Is it possible Henson is misunderstood? Even if he is, I feel inclined to rip him for saying something that stupid.

Stupid doesn't even cover it. Saying his tweets are stupid is like saying Charlie Weis could kind of use Nutri-System. Henson's quotes were all-time. He will not be a Redskin for long.
