Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison and safety Ryan Clark did not hold back their thoughts after the New England Patriots lost to the New York Giants this past Sunday in Super Bowl XLVI, as both took to Twitter to pile on the Patriots after their loss. Harrison first let loose with a tweet that said, “Told you, cheaters never win!!!!!!!!!” and that prompted a tweet from Clark that read, “0-2 post spy gate! Just saying!!”
It has been a big non-story ever since the Super Bowl ended but it has prompted a response now from Patriots linebacker Dane Fletcher which read, “Hilarious how some people judge others, calling them “cheaters” when they are amongst the top in the league for dirty plays #growup” While Fletcher did not name any names or teams in his tweet, it is obvious to know he is responding to the tweets that Harrison and Clark made.

Fletcher is not exactly the marque name on the Patriots roster as he had just one tackle in the Super Bowl after recording 32 in the regular season. I expect Harrison to respond with a tweet something along the lines of a, “Who\’s that?” This will surely could end up being one hell of a Twitter Bro Down for the rest of the offseason and I will be on top of this non story all of the way. Come at me, Bro!
