OBJ ranting on Twitter...

bigfrank612 : 4/22/2019 7:22 pm
Responding to a good amount of fans and “haters”...he said “ I gave them everything I had bruh bruh errr Sunday . Just put some respect on my name that’s all I’m sayin! I ain’t sayin nothin, n trust me I got a LOTTTTT of info that people don’t kno about so, so keep my name outcha mouth the way I do yalls ! Ya diggg“

Constantly talking about how happy he is where he landed (is he tho?) and acting as if he’s gonna take the high road, yet continues with his passive aggressive remarks. Listen, I still wanted #13 here, and hated that we gave him up, but this is something I do not miss. Wondering when he’s gonna be all in his feelings and trying to figure out his hidden messages. Good Luck OBJ.

I do not want to make this a political discussion. But redlining has nothing to do with keeping minorities out of the suburbs.

It had to do with banks and financial institutions not lending monies for areas/properties that carried too much risk. Sure that lead to some discrimination.

One can also say, they might have be saving someone from themselves.

Here is what I tell my kids.....

if you are looking for discrimination, you can always find it. If you do not let anything stop you, nothing will.

there is a certain comedy  
PaulBlakeTSU : 4/23/2019 8:00 am : link
about grown men telling a professional athlete to just shut up and play as they obsess over his daily life.

It reminds me of the ratings scene from Private Parts

Quote:
Researcher: The average radio listener listens for eighteen minutes a day. The average Howard Stern fan listens for - are you ready for this? - an hour and twenty minutes.
Kenny: How could this be?
Researcher: Answer most commonly given: "I want to see what he'll say next."
Kenny: : All right, fine. But what about the people who hate Stern?
Researcher: Good point. The average Stern hater listens for two and a half hours a day.
Kenny: : But... if they hate him, why do they listen?
Researcher: Most common answer: "I want to see what he'll say next."

A couple things people were posting to him were pretty vicious, and I honestly think he was trying to take the high road, in his own way.

Yeah, he’d be better off not engaging, but the OP and narrative that this represents OBJ ranting isn’t quite accurate - he’s defending himself, and I didn’t see him putting down anyone in response.

He’s a weird guy, no doubt, but I honestly don’t think he’s a bad guy, as others have said. Being emotional, insecure, and seeking attention then being uncomfortable when he gets it make for these kind of awkward situations...but the NFL has had far worse than OBJ amongst its ranks.

As for the trade, I’m fine with it bc we need to rebuild, but I don’t necessarily think DG’s comments were about OBJ directly as much as the collection of guys he shipped out.

It might be possible that Odell, like a lot of people his age, acts like an idiot on social, but is still a player you want on your football team.

Lol at the "good riddance" crowd. I don't even mind that he's gone for larger, cultural reasons. The locker room needed new leadership and a new identity. A purging of the guard that was in place. But that sentiment has absolutely nothing to do with what the kid is tweeting.

Metnut : 4/23/2019 10:20 am : link
then surely the Giants will be back in playoff contention this upcoming season with him gone and Cleveland will disappoint since they'll be unable to focus on anything having such a distracting "me first" player around their locker room messing everything up.

Looking forward to seeing Gettlemen proved to be a genius this upcoming year. Seriously, it would be hilarious. I'm not buying it, but would love to see it. Sick of Giants football seasons over before Halloween.

Nothing would be sweeter than nailing this draft again with 2-3 top prospects on defense, getting back to running the ball at will, and getting into the playoffs at 9-7 for 1 more Eli playoff run.

Gimme Wilkins, Bush/Burns, Risner top 3 and this team can win those games they blew last year

We had what we needed growing up and nothing more in the 70s/80s. It seems to no longer be the case for the majority of children out there.

But, I think they're facing a challenge of growing up in a much more difficult world than I did. Social media, 24x7 news, the massive focus on image, and the insane amount of money made by celebrities all create different types of pressure and stress.

OBJ wants to be a brand. Wants millions of “followers” but doesn’t want any of the consequences of living in that world.

He may be an insane athlete but all this shows he’s a big whiny bitch. He had it all. Put the phone down and grow up.
OBJ lives in a world of much different consequences

It's interesting. If you didn't live before the internet and social media, you just can't really understand, truly understand, what it's like to live without those things.

They are not just two different ballparks, they are different galaxies. I feel both fortunate and cursed that I lived in a time where I grew up completely devoid of the internet and everything that came with it. It is impossible for anybody born after, including my kids, to ever understand what that was like.

A turningpoint in human history. It has rewired the way the human brain develops. For better or worse, TBD I guess....

That I can agree with. This is where the proliferation of safe spaces really comes from. People want to live in this fishbowl and can't handle any the negatives that come with it, some people may disagree with what you are putting out there. I'm in my early 30s and this insecurity seems to run rampant among those younger than me and even some in my age group.
Your OBJ, why the fuck do you care what people have to say about you. One of the most exciting players in the NFL worth 100 million. If that is me, I'm smiling all day and saying people are entitled to their opinion. I think that is why most of us still love LT, even with his failures as a human being. People that have rock solid security in themselves tend to be more likeable than those that come off like Odell here.

The issue is social media and how it has magnified the issues young people face, validation and the ability to fit in. It has completely changed value systems. I said it before, but I remember when being cool was about not giving a fuck. Now it is all about how carefully you can craft your image, which in all reality isn't who you are creating massive unhappiness. It's the old keeping up with the Joneses, but to the extremes.

More often than not, the image isn't reality, either. It's just how you want to be perceived.

It's like some people I know. I know the reality of their lives, but if you were to look at their social media feeds, you'd think they were living the life of luxury with no worries, super well adjusted kids and marriages, and not a care in the world. Daily life is not like that.

Social media isn't real life.
I'd say social media is more like an avatar than real life.

What is your definition of a millennial? I’m just curious because ppl tend to constantly think 16-22 year olds are millennials. Most millennials are married with kids. Hell, Eli is on the fringe of being a millennial.
I admittedly use that term loosely.  
Britt in VA : 4/23/2019 11:37 am : link
I know their generation is defined as beginning in the mid-80's.

But I personally would define them as the first generation that either came of age, or were brought up, during the rise of the internet.

which BTW was the season that the franchise literally imploded. from coaching, to management... everywhere. he was NOT playing during this period of implosion. uninvolved... team and coaching just sucking along becoming a national embarrassment during Geno gate. But somehow... mysteriously... now that he is gone.... its just a massive good riddance from people.

its one thing to say (which i agree with to some extent)-- the giants needed to go in a different direction and as constructed it wasnt working... another to say they got good value if one believes that, and the locker room needed shake up as he is a polarizing guy on a bad team... which is a bad combo.

its another to just start saying the good riddance as if the guy wasnt (ex barkley now) the only reason to turn on a giants game since he arrived. and the main reason offensively why the team even saw a playoff game... which he then totally botched

Among the league leaders in drops since 2016, always hurt, never shuts up, childish antics, off field distractions, and was absolutely terrible in the biggest game of his career.

He was fun to watch, his highlights are fun too ... but good riddance. Barkley became the best player on the team as soon as he was drafted - and he’s actually likable on top of it.

Fan base takes shots at player after he leaves (and after he got hurt 2 years in a row on plays having nothing to do with his “ability to stay healthy”- shocking

Fan base to claim “I told you so” when bad team naturally becomes better because the only direction is up (and they drafted well) shocking

Fan base worships championship players of past who are legit scum bags and bad people- but obsessed over player who is social media obsessed hurting zero people. Shocking

This. The moment I truly viewed Barkley as the franchise player was when he broke off a long run early in the season for a TD. Beckham comes running down to try to get Barkley to participate in some stupid dance and Barkley shrugged him off. He shrugged him off because we were still losing the game.
